The cloud can store a variety of useful programs that people from several nations use each day in their business and personal lives. Barnaby Lashbrooke, founder of the virtual workforce platform Time Etc has highlighted the benefits of cloud-based solutions such as Gmail and Skype, as well as the value of letting virtual employees decide their own hours in order to heighten productivity. This would apply to parents who regularly pick their children up from school or nursery.
