We would like to launch a new platform for online file storage, sharing and collaboration. In the first place just for private users, without too many functions.
Private user functions / features:
- Upload/Download files (also with desktop client) - Create new folders - Share files and folders with friends Send a Link: Generate a link, paste it into an email or a message, or send directly from the platform. Ability to import Facebook-contacts and post directly on Facebook.
Share a Folder: Create a new folder, upload files, and then invite friends to join (with different varieties of permissions, e.g. view, edit, co-owner and so on)
- Access files from any device (Laptop, Desktop, Smartphone, Tablet) - Comment files - View version history - Real-time updates
Always see when someone's viewed, edited or commented on a file.
- Full-text search
- View files directly on the platform (e.g. pictures, music, videos, MS Word files)
Possibility to upgrade to a Pro Account with more storage/functions in the Shop (PayPal, MasterCard,…)
- Invite friends for more storage
Send a link with an invitation to join our platform. Link referred to your profile. Gets you more storage (e.g. every friend who joins with your link gets you 1GB extra storage)
- MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint Add-on
Save, open and share files directly in the program
- Desktop Client (on MAC and Windows)
Allows you to work on files offline. Desktop Client synchronizes selected files or folders when connected to internet.
- Operating System:
We are still not sure if the operating system should be Windows or Linux Server. Both have their advantages for us. This is a topic we would like to clarify with you.
- Security of files and file transfer:
What are you able to do to secure the file transfer and the files as good as possible on our servers? Which standards are you working with?
- Design of the Platform:
Are you able to design the platform yourself, do you work together with web designers or would we need an external web designer?
In the second place we want to add additional functions and features to our platform that allows business customers to use it as file server replacement and collaboration tool. This is just a very short summary of our idea. If you are interested please contact us for further and detailed information and to clarify questions.
