  • Testing services for software optimization along with well secured online collaboration facilities and stability for quality management and hot fixes.
  • Receive, share and manage emails, tasks, calendar and documentation related material with encrypted video conferencing facilities.
  • Provide teams to host their own collaboration platform while ensuring security, compliance & flexibility to integrate additional setups.
  • Manage organizational data by enabling access with user roles and managing how access is provided for team members to use protected company /client data.
  • Some of the functionalities that are essential is being hidden from the viewable user interface. User experience needs to be improved for options in operational features.
  • User interface isn't great and during conflicts sometimes local files are being renamed.
  • It may take a large time to sync incase theres a file conflict.
