AUGI launches secure file sharing functionality
AUGI announces its newest offering to members—a Web-based private file sharing and collaboration tool. AUGI, in collaboration with drop.io, now provides its members with a place to share files, drawings, models, photos, video, audio and more.
Autodesk User Group International (AUGI) members can use drop.io to privately share their files and collaborate in real time by web, email, phone, mobile, and more.
“Users can take any files and add them to a private, online space called a 'drop' to share via the web and more. The drops do not require any type of account registration and can be password-protected and set to expire after a period of time, so they can share exactly what they want with whomever they want for as long as they want” states Steven Greenwood of drop.io. " This is a lower cost solution vs. FTPs and IT support-dependent sharing options."
“Our members can take advantage of the latest trend in file sharing to exchange their files” says Mark Kiker, president of AUGI. “They get more out of their membership as we expand into new areas”.
As an AUGI-member, you can create unlimited 100mb drops to share files with full SSL security.
• Each drop has a phone number and extension. Call the drop, talk all you want - it is converted to an MP3 and left right in the drop on the fly. Listen to it on the drop, or send it out via email, RSS, MMS, or basically anything else you want.
• Every drop has its own free conference call number automatically assigned to it. The drop's conference call number stays the same, so consider it for long term use as your drop is active.
• Each drop has its own e-mail address. Send a notes or attachments to the drop from a computer, Blackberry, or any e-mail or MMS enabled phone. If you send a file, the text of the e-mail will be posted as a comment on the file. If you send just text, it will be added to the drop as a note.
