'Within a few weeks of joining we'd taken advantage of FSB’s Online Legal Documents. We started a graduate programme and access to these documents gave us an understanding of the legal side, and has helped us to create a number of processes and procedures.'
'When we first took on a member of staff, we used the online legal document template library. FSB does more important stuff than you think it does, there are lots of member benefits, probably more than we actually use.'
'Having somebody like FSB behind you is fantastic. There is a whole team behind the organisations, whatever is required: support, advice, finance, you know that you’re not alone, you’ve got FSB.'
We represent a diverse range of businesses from retailers to marketing agencies and just about everything in between. Take a look at more member stories and see how we could help your business fly.

For the small business owner, these are all too familiar scenarios: you’re out meeting clients and pitching for new work, but the documents you need are on a computer back at the office – and they’re too big for a colleague to email over to you! Or, you’re at home in the evening, when it becomes apparent you need to work on a document that’s in a folder on the office server. It would be easy to open your laptop and start work, but you just don’t have remote access.
Breakdowns like these are all too familiar to the smaller business owner, but adding just a few simple pieces of cloud computing into the mix, could help make improvements to your productivity.
If a big change to company infrastructure is out of the question, then adding a file-hosting service to the mix could quickly eliminate access problems. Many file-sharing services (Dropbox being amongst the most popular) allow users to create folders on their computers which then synchronise with a website where documents can then be placed and shared easily with colleagues and accessed from multiple devices. Google Docs is an alternative service, where documents can be uploaded, shared and edited, and made viewable on most devices where you can log-in to Google.
Beyond the file-sharing sites sits a range of providers (JustCloud is one) that act as a data back-up so that should your hardware be compromised in any way, your information will be held in reserve remotely and not lost. These services also act as a good way to transfer massive files that are too big for the consumer end of the file-sharing market.
In a small business project management can be difficult. Often, projects take you away from your core responsibilities and necessitate encouraging others to do the same. So, how do you keep everyone on the same page and ensure that work’s being done to schedule? Well, what about a single website to help you keep everything together?
