OfficeDrop, which powers cloud online storage, gives paper new life and makes documents more collaborative, just got a lot better, bigger and faster with a major upgrade to its system.
As a result of the upgrade, any file type can be uploaded with ease and more files can be stored within the digital filing cabinet, whose size has been increased to 2GB, according to company officials.
“OfficeDrop is increasingly becoming a part of the small business everyday workflow,” said OfficeDrop CEO Prasad Thammineni. “These upgrades will make us a destination for all of our customers' cloud storage needs -- making it faster and easier to upload, search, store, and share any file type than ever before.”
With OfficeDrop now accepting all digital file types, it has become an interesting storehouse that houses not only 'boring paper documents' but also a lively set of MP3s, videos and images that add that extra bounce and spice to any space.
With a full-text search engine thrown in for good effect, it becomes easier for users to find what they need in just a matter of seconds.
Space is something that users can never have enough of and OfficeDrop realizing this is offering its lowest plan, free to users, with 2 GB of storage per month, while the five-person team version offers 150GB per month.
And that's not the end of the story, as a major backend upgrade will now enable users to scan and upload files from iPhones, iPads, an OfficeDrop web account, a desktop computer or even from Google Docs and Evernote (News - Alert) within seconds and store all these files in OfficeDrop.
After being automatically indexed for search, these files can be forwarded or shared simply and easily with absolutely no hassle. OfficeDrop is reportedly the only cloud storage company to convert mobile scans into multi-page, text searchable PDFs.
In other news OfficeDrop announced a custom small business online cloud storage solution for cable and Internet service providers. With 34 percent of small businesses investigating and intending to implement cloud services, many are looking to their cable and ISPs to provide them with easy access to the cloud.
