Onehub is ten years old this year! Time hasn’t slowed us down, in fact, a decade in and we’re still growing. So much so that we had to bring on a new member of the team to help with sales.
Jennifer Lau is Onehub’s newest Inside Sales Account Manager and she is here to make sure everyone new to our service has the best experience. We thought you should get to know her, so we sat down and asked her a few questions.
What do you do for Onehub?
Basically, I do sales at Onehub. I handle initial customer contact from our free fourteen-day trial to the actual purchase. I do account management as well to make sure customers are getting the most out of their subscription. I also drink a lot of tea. Continue reading
Technology lets us keep track of every minute detail of our lives. How many steps we take, the hours we sleep, how many calories we consume. By tracking things, we can get a bigger picture of our overall wellbeing.
It’s the same idea with Onehub’s Activity Report feature. By providing you a log of every event that happens in your account: What files are uploaded, by whom, who has accessed them and when, what was done with the files, etc., you get a better sense of your overall file sharing.
Our Activity Report also helps you understand how people are using your data — and in some cases, can help you make better business decisions in ways that might not immediately come to mind. Continue reading
The tech world (and tech press) often focus on the Silicon Valley-centric world of huge VC-backed startups. And there is a good reason for that — a lot of those kinds of companies do interesting, innovative things. But as Farhad Manjoo recently wrote in The New York Times, there is another, often less reported, less traditional, and less glamourous way to build a business.
In his story on Mailchimp, Manjoo writes:
“In fact, it’s possible to create a huge tech company without taking venture capital, and without spending far beyond your means. It’s possible, in other words, to start a tech company that runs more like a normal business than a debt-fueled rocket ship careening out of control. Believe it or not, start-ups don’t even have to be headquartered in San Francisco or Silicon Valley.”
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
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
We understand. The holidays are busy and you are slammed (closing those deals before the year ends!). So rather than writing a lengthy productivity blog post or doing SEO gymnastics to get some of that Star Wars traffic, we just wanted to pass along a quick note to send you warm wishes this time of year. From all of us at Onehub — happy holidays!
Onehub is looking to add to our engineering group!
We have two positions open in our Seattle office for candidates who want to code and be part of a close-knit, nimble team helping more than 1 million users collaborate more effectively and become unbelievably productive.
We believe a healthy work/life balance empowers every employee to create better products. We operate sane office hours, take appropriate coffee breaks, stock the place with a bevy of healthy snacks, and provide gym memberships so you can work out during the day.
If either of these positions resonate with you, contact us to schedule a coffee meeting and get this party started. Please include links to any products you have worked on and/or open source projects you have contributed to along with your resume. firstname.lastname@example.org. Continue reading
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 storage and sharing service on the market?
