What startups can learn from kickboxing

kickboxer

I’m a bit of a black sheep at Onehub HQ because, while my colleagues enjoy CrossFit, my preferred workout is kickboxing. And while bashing heavy bags is a fun way to exercise, kickboxing has actually taught me some lessons that apply to business and startups of every size.

This isn’t some on-the-nose metaphor about stepping into the ring or getting back up after getting knocked down. It’s about the broader approach to fighting to get the best results: Read More…

Onehub pricing cuts down on office complexities

keep-it-simple

Onehub can make accounting less taxing

A procrastinator friend of mine likes to say “if you put things off to the last minute, they only take a minute to do.” I guess true procrastinators won’t get started on their taxes until next Wednesday, but for those who like to plan ahead, Onehub can help make taxes less… taxing, for both individuals and accounting firms.

For regular folks filing taxes, Onehub can help with:

  • Secure storage your important financial files. Everything you store on Onehub is encrypted with bank-level security, and you can even require passwords to access your content.
  • Smart sharing. With role-based permissions, you decide who can edit, view or download your financial files, no one else has access.
  • Broad file support and search. Preview Excel sheets, Word docs, or PDFs directly within Onehub and our powerful search lets you find specific items within your documents.

How Hollywood can use Onehub’s security features

onehub-hollywood-star

We live in the golden age of spoilers. As soon as a major movie is announced, superfans across the internet spring into action to reveal every casting rumor, shooting location and plot point. And that’s actually the benevolent scenario. Far scarier are situations such as the Sony hack last winter that made that studio’s secrets public.

It’s no surprise then that Hollywood is more paranoid than ever when protecting their intellectual property. A recent New York Times article points out that studios have had to evolve beyond watermarks and papercraft to thwart evildoers.

Studios, production houses or even screenwriters themselves looking to secure their stories need look no further than Onehub, which offers a host of easy-to-use and effective security measures. Read More…

Get less email when you optimize your Onehub notification settings

zero-inbox

Homer Simpson once remarked that alcohol was “the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems.” The same sentiment can probably be said of email. Email is awesome — until it becomes overwhelming.

We understand that getting to inbox zero is a Sisyphean task, and we want to do our part to make sure you only get emails that are helpful. Reducing the number of emails you get via your Onehub Workspaces is easy with Notification Filters.

Onehub notifications are part of our activity tracking and broader security measures, so you know who has accessed and interacted with your content. The notification filters allow you to adjust how often you receive emails and for what activity.

Onehub support made with people, not robots

Processed with VSCOcam with a10 presetIn a world where robots are taking our jobs, writing the news and swarming The Avengers, Onehub customers can rest assured knowing that we prefer a more personal touch.

When you have a question, especially a complicated one, sometimes it’s faster to speak with a person rather than sifting through message boards or navigating through complex automated phone trees.

That’s why we have actual humans available to talk with you starting from the moment you first start considering Onehub and continuing long after you’ve become a loyal customer. Our sales and support team will answer your questions quickly and professionally to ensure you have the best experience.

If you have questions about Onehub and want to reach our actual people, give us a call anytime at (877) 644-7774. (Though if you happen to call on May 1, we’ll call you back after seeing The Avengers: Age of Ultron.)
