Coordinate your collaboration to unlock better business file sharing

cd_options

One of the best pieces of fashion advice (stay with me) I ever got was: your shoes should match your belt which should match your watch. Coordinate all three to make a more polished look. The same could be said for your business file sharing, which is why we offer awesome branding tools such as customization, whitelabeling and custom domains. When you activate all three, you unlock the most professional, polished version of your business collaboration that will be more efficient and impress any client or customer. Continue reading

How to create an accounting client portal

client-portal-taxes

I dropped off all my tax materials with my accountant earlier this week. I love my accountant, but her electronic collaboration tools could use some upgrading. Sure, I can email and upload documents to her, but I wish she had a more unified solution, like a client portal.

As we’ve talked about before, client portals are a way for service firms (like accountants) to electronically share documents with all their clients from a central location. The ability to easily and affordably create client portals is one of our most popular features. If you are an accountant looking to make the crunch of tax time a little easier on your firm, here’s how you can create your own client portal in Onehub today. Continue reading

A tale of two “hubs”

Today’s blog post is brought to you by the letter “e.”

There’s a saying my old boss used to tell me. “When an elephant jumps in the water, everyone gets wet.” It’s fair to say that in just about any technology sense, Google is an elephant. Earlier this week that elephant — well, did more of a hop than a full-on jump, and we are getting spritzed.

Google unveiled OnHub, billed as “a router for the new way to wi-fi.”

Something about that name stood out to all of us here who work at “Onehub.” Namely, how important a single letter can become.

We love Google and integrate the Google Docs directly into our collaboration tools. And, at least initially, there appears to be some confusion as we’ve been receiving a boost in traffic to this blog via Google search. The top two viewed articles were “Connecting your Google account to Onehub is as simple as A-B-C” and “Create and edit files from Onehub with Google Drive.”

We’re not sure what the venn diagram is of our respective audiences are — but if you’ve arrived here looking for a router, may we tell you about the best enterprise file share and sync service on the market?

Data security is our priority

All Onehub Communication Is Secured Over HTTPSThere are some things you should feel safe in assuming. When you use Onehub, for instance, you are right to assume that keeping your data safe is our top priority, because it is.

But with news of another hack, this time exposing the personal information of up to 14 million federal workers, we thought it would be a good time to re-state the fact that keeping your data safe is our top priority.

We recently put together a brief primer on Onehub’s security measures, should you wish to re-acquaint yourself with them.

Video: Send secure links to share your files with anyone
