Glasscubes Software


 

Glasscubes offers collaboration software for businesses. It provides for file sharing, collaboration and document management in the cloud, making it accessible from any device with an Internet connection.

Glasscubes’ file sharing module lets users store all of their documents in the cloud, while its online community facilitates knowledge sharing. Users can upload any type of file they want without size restriction, and can share files with people who are not subscribed to Glasscubes by sending them a password-protected link.

This software features a “whiteboard” tool, where team members can jot down notes and attach images and links on a shareable whiteboard. Glasscubes also offers a buildable knowledge base, allowing team members to share information and questions in one location.

Glasscubes automatically saves all versions of a document. Users can attach conversations to documents and make sure the relevant documents are associated with a project. They can then assign tasks to team members and mark tasks by priority level.

Pricing is based on the number of users per month. Telephone and live chat support are offered.

Pros

Glasscubes is a really useful storage and communication area that has been create for the business we are in. It allows us to easily start discussions, show changes and new additional files uploaded and generally keeps everything easy to find and store for quick workflow across multiple sites.

Cons

There is not much the software cannot do, it is multi functional and provides the company with a lot of functionality that we didn't have before as we used multiple platforms for different things.

Pros

When used by many in an organisation it does help colleagues connect very easily, people are much more likely to see important info and content whereas on emails it is easy to miss people off. It is very easy to collaborate with multiple people through quick commenting and the ability to edit files while having all previous versions available.

Cons

It can be a little hard/confusing to navigate to the specific resources you want. Email notifications can get excessive but are easy to modify.

Makes project working easier and more efficient.

Pros

Makes communicating and sharing documents with colleagues easier. Especially when you want other colleagues to comment on updated documents.

Cons

When a colleague comments on a workspace you're in you get a notification. However, this notification also generates an email. This workspace was suppose to cut back emails, however it seems to create more..

Pros

The software is quite straightforward to use and doesn't require too much training. Being able to do a search for documents is useful. 'Tagging' colleagues is another good feature which my team use a lot.

Cons

The preview version of Word, Excel and PPT documents doesn't show them properly which means that you always have to download the document to see it properly.

Hi Lucy,

Thank you for you review and feedback. The way files are previewed in Glasscubes can be adjusted by setting the print preview area before saving and uploading the file. Don't hesitate to reach out to us if you need any assistance with that.

Pros

My department works across several higher education institutions which all operate in slightly different ways. Before we subscribed to Glasscubes, the challenges we faced performing simple tasks such as file-sharing, collaboration and diary coordination were taking up a significant amount of admin time. We're now working much more efficiently on Glasscubes and the extra features, such as Task Management, are a real bonus! The support in place for teams working on Glasscubes is some of the best I've seen with any product or service; whether you head to the Glasscubes Help Centre and read the tutorials on every aspect of the system, chat to the support team on the messaging feature, or phone them, you're never far from help. I've had very few issues so far, but they have always been solved really quickly and thoroughly.

Cons

There is very little I dislike about Glasscubes as a company and a product. I am truly impressed as a customer. One aspect that perhaps has room for improvement is the development of features on Glasscubes - specifically that there are so many brilliant suggestions by users that the task of implementing them all is next to impossible. Having said that, the very idea that users can request features that they would find useful in their work with Glasscubes is a great system in itself and another reason I fully recommend it to companies and teams of any size.

Multiple - sharing, communicating, collaborating.

Pros

It can form the central focus for staff working remotely as well as internally, which suits our team well. Documents can be uploaded and saved quickly and easily. Particularly helpful for collaboration on projects and a great way of communicating to a large team using the intranet facility. Helpful for storing and sharing information in addition to being secure via use of the permissions facility, which is vital. Perfect for a team working in multiple locations to feel united in working towards the same goal.

Cons

Getting to grips with something new can sometimes prove a little daunting...other than that I have had no problems with Glasscubes.

No longer having to search through loads of emails to find work or briefs

Pros

You can upload artwork and documents to individual jobs, so it's easy to follow the progress.
You get notifications when someone updates or posts.
Does away with loads of emails. Everything in one place

Cons

The interface is a bit basic but very user-friendly. You get an email notification even if you are using glasscubes. An email while offline would be better.

Huge benefits. Keeps my inbox clean. Quick, simple and easy to use. Breaks down the communication barriers with the rest of the team.

Pros

Keeps the communication channels open, allows mutiple people to track jobs and respond the status. Really quick with greta file storage.

Cons

If the internet is down obviously that cause problems. It can be quite glitchy as our proxy walls cause it problems.

Pros

This tool brings organisation with ease.
Ability to tag colleagues and direct workflow to exactly who needs it. Later you can tag others bringing people into the mix at the required time.
Ease and Simplicity: It gives direction to potentially fragmented processes. Commenting on attached work really helps maintain focus on the job at hand.

Cons

i dont have it for my home life is probably my only con. i guess job numbers could auto generate but this is a minor issue that may be client specific.

A single place for us to find jobs and communicate easily with the whole team.

Pros

Staff are always at the ready to tackle issues. Everything was very easy to use from the beginning, and has solved a lot of challenges we've been facing tracking jobs.

Cons

It can be a bit buggy sometimes, but it's a work in process and issues are quickly resolved. It won't take long for it to be perfected!

It's hard to know what's in each folder unless you drill down into them all. I also get lots of notifications that are not particularly relevant to me that clogs up my emails.

It is good to know that i can send out a document securely. I can also send out a big file without having to break it up.

Pros

Great for when you are spread out within a region and everyone needs access to the same documents. New updates make it more user friendly.

Cons

Tricky at first, there is a lot of things you need to personalize which take time. For example, you would have to customize the workspace lists so that not everyone gets the emails. It takes time to set up but once you do that it is a good product

Easy to upload documents and to make comments relevant by tagging specific people.

It is a little clunky and could be a bit less cluttered visually. App not available on Windows phone.
