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.

Hi Jonathan,

Thank you for your review and feedback. The iOS phone app does allow for a landscape view and the Android version will do shortly. Look out for the next release.

Pros

The platform is very user friendly and has online help and support available at all times. I have never needed to use this feature as I find it really easy to use. Folders and files are easy to create which makes organising and sharing a breeze!

Cons

The only con I can think of with Glasscubes is very small. When adding people to workspaces and you select the option to send a copy to yourself, it sends a copy of all of the invites sent out. Clutters up the email a bit butit is easily rectified by not sending it to yourself!

It helps keep us connected and efficient with all documents stored in one place, with easy access to edit and track progress. Overall it's a great tool and something we really value.

Cons

There have been a couple of bugs when opening documents whilst still using other programmes, but GlassCubes have attempted to rectify this with updates and it's only a small issue.

No real snags so far. Would be nice to be able to link it up to Trello, haven't used the checklist function on here though so not sure how that measures up.

Effective communication, organization, improves our efficiency. The chat feature helps us communicate in a way which keeps the noise volume down in our showroom environment. Perfect tool for our business. Could not be more pleased. Also has a downloadable app for smart phone users, which allows our outside sales team connectivity.

Pros

We could not be happier with this product! Excellent value, affordable, perfect for our organization's size and needs. Did not know a comprehensive product like this existed. Glasscubes' support is dependable. Communication is stellar. Could not be more pleased, and my company has benefitted from this purchase. It has changed the way we work and improved our efficiency. It give us the tools larger organizations have, and has streamlined the way we communicate and organize particular functions. The downloadable app for smart phones was a big bonus. Amazing product, exceptional value.

Cons

Looking forward to the Calendar feature being a part of the app. Otherwise, I do not have any cons to convey.

There's multiple functionalities through one software - only one log in needed!

Pros

Sharing files through work spaces. Being able to post on a forum. Being able to privately message colleagues without the need to email.

Cons

Layout is a bit messy. Search function sometimes doesn't work as expected, even knowing name of the post/file.

Access to and ability to search documents.

Pros

Easy to upload and search documents. Easy for the firm to be split into teams for various functions and communications.

Cons

One automatically 'follows' a post once commenting on a post, it would be ideal to have the option to follow something or not when commenting on someone's comment.

Hi there,

Thank you for leaving us a review. You mentioned that "it would be ideal to have the option to follow something or not when commenting on someone's comment". FYI, you do have the option to manually follow or unfollow items. In most cases you will want to follow an item that you have commented on so that you will see any other comments that are added to the item. If you would prefer not to receive those type of notifications you can manually unfollow the item.

I hope that helps and thank you for your support.

It's a great way to share across a network where there are lots of individuals from different institutions working together. We are able to share files, which are sorted through the workspaces, thoughts through the forum and see upcoming events.

Pros

Ability to post on a social forum as it allows everyone in our network to update what is going on, comment, ask questions and ask for actions to be completed.

Cons

Notifications don't immediately go away and get marked as read. Even when you've seen the post though the emailed link.

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..

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.
