The Dell Sisters are working with Microsoft Office365 and 85 Broads to profile women-run businesses making things happen.
Preparing for a film, we work from phones, tablets, laptops, and more, traveling between sets, offices, and states. Office “in the cloud” has come on board to streamline remote contacts and help make business run better! Yay remote access!
We are just beginning our Office365 makeover, so stay tuned for updates as we deal with migrations (you want to put all my email where?!!), onsite visits, deployments, and marketing.
Two Camels Films is one of five women-run companies around the US selected for the “Your Office, Your Terms” campaign and we are extremely grateful for the support.

Thank you Microsoft and 85 Broads!
