Changes to Collavate for Businesses.

Collavate started with the simple idea that document collaboration in the Cloud can help businesses, schools and organizations work together better and be more productive.   The problem, however, is that the solutions offered by Google (Apps and Drive) are hard to manage and often cause more problems than they solve.    So, Collavate re-invented Google Drive to make collaboration simpler to use and easier to manage, and with better protection of an organization’s domain.   Collavate has now grown from a handful of customers to over two thousand customers and over 400,000 users. When we first launched a paid version of Collavate, we kept a free Standard Edition with limits on certain functions so users could experience our product without having to purchase it.   Over time, however, we received a lot of complaints and misunderstandings concerning the free product.   One such complaint was that the limitations of the free version prevented larger users from fully experiencing our product.   …

COLLAVATE’s “Remote Drive User” is Now Fully Released!

Collavate is proud to announce that it’s “Remote Drive User” feature, which had been released in a “beta” version with limited functionality, is now  officially fully released and is no longer a “beta” product.We are excited to announce the release of our latest feature, “Remote Drive User.” This feature allows an organization to invite outsider collaborators to work within the domain without giving such outside collaborators access to the domain.  When outside collaborators create a document in the organization’s domain, the ownership of that document automatically transfer to the domain admin or other designated person within the domain.   This allows the organization to protect documents created in and shared with the domain by outside collaborators without concerns about the copyright of the document and without worries about whether the collaborator will “disappear” with the document. As with many of our features, Remote Drive User was conceived based on user demand.  We have rece…

Introducing 'Remote Drive User' in COLLAVATE

Increasingly, collaboration is required with persons outside of an organization’s domain, such as with contractors, partners and customers.  

And, until now, there was no way, without bringing the outside person into the organization’s domain, for the domain to control the activities of such outside party or to maintain control over documents created by such outside persons on behalf of the organization.  
Collavate’s Remote Drive User feature, allows safe collaboration with outside parties while maintaining control over documents.  

With this new feature, an organization can invite outside collaborators to be a Remote Drive User so they can utilize an organization’s domain when required without being admitted to the domain.  

Documents created by outside Remote Drive Users remain within the domain because ownership of such documents is automatically transferred to the domain administrator or other designated person.
