Small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) need their teams to be ready to work as efficiently as possible. There’s simply no time to waste when you’re a small team with big goals.

And these days, regardless of the role they play, everyone working at an SMB relies on technology to communicate and to manage their workflow. It goes without saying that this technology can either enable the efficient collaboration these teams need, or hinder crucial day-to-day progress. In many cases, sharing and accessing key information — without wasting time with large file transfers, or manually tracking down info on shared drives — can be one difference between a successful effort and a wasted day.

It’s not like sharing files is a one-off task, either. Collaborating today involves constantly providing content to other people — whether they’re members of your team, your partners or even clients. Meetings are more productive when you can share content in real time, rather than sending items afterward.

That’s why the Galaxy Book lineup features Quick Share, which lets you send files, photos or videos with a single tap. Originally designed to easily share content between Samsung smartphones, the feature proved so useful it was integrated natively on the Galaxy Book as well.

In terms of how to use Quick Share, the process is as simple as choosing the content you want, designating a recipient and having them click “Accept.” They can then retrieve the content on their Galaxy Book or their smartphone. Best of all, Quick Share can be used to send content to multiple people at the same time, rather than individually.

Quick Share is brilliantly simple. Here’s a guide on how to use it.
