The ability to collaborate on an exhaustive document with multiple users is especially useful in a larger corporate environment. When many people try to work collaboratively on single or multiple documents that might make up a business plan, different versions typically float back and forth via email, dropbox, or on multiple corporate servers. Having a single Cloud based service provide access to a shared document like this makes things much simpler.
Many times users find themselves working in an offline environment, whether they’re traveling on a bus or train or airplane, they can effectively be cut off digitally. Also in those environments, where’s it’s growing increasingly likely to have some form of mobile connectivity available, having a consistent internet connection with basic bandwidth can be difficult. This application requires a constant internet connection, and an offline mode is unavailable. Having that functionality would be beneficial.
Try it with multiple users that are not in the same office. Have people try it from home or while working with a remote office location. That way you can see how useful this could be.
Collaborative document management can be a challenge for any organization. While Microsoft Office has a document tracking function, it’s often insufficient when working with a multitude of users. Dropbox also makes it easier in some respects, but the case of multiple users ending up with multiple documents remains. Also not all of the features that this product offers are available via Dropbox. By combining Office’s extended functionality with Dropbox style sharing , this has the potential to be the best of both worlds.
