Productivity³ with WorkflowMax and the Cloud

Cloud apps like WorkflowMax are doing an awesome job of boosting productivity by saving time spent on quoting and managing jobs. The same is true with cloud storage tools like Dropbox, or email apps like Gmail and Office 365, which have enabled users to work from anywhere.
