Running a productive workplace isn't just about hiring the best people. It's also about making sure those people have access to the information they need when they need it.

When you make use of ownCloud, you'll have access to your files and information regardless of what device you're using or where you happen to be. ownCloud is particularly useful for its ease of use. The cleanly laid out interface resembles the sort of stripped down design of a standard file manager. You can create your own filing system and know that you can reach into these folders whenever you need them, and ownCloud comes backed with a robust selection of search and filtering options. You can designate favorites for easier access and scour through revisions you've made so you can more effectively track the history of your documents, photos, or videos. ownCloud offers integration for elasticSeach, a a powerful full stack cloud-based search engine that can be incredibly valuable when you're storing large amounts of complex analytics in your virtual onCloud space. That allows you to turn ownCloud into a virtual resource network for your marketing, sales, and customer service teams. Making sure everyone who needs your information receives it is a painless process. ownCloud is designed with collaboration in mind. You'll have full control over administrative controls, from deciding who can access which files to establishing editing privileges. You can also assign password protection to specific files or folders. Access to these files can further be distributed via email or password protected links. ownCloud is open source, and this allows it to continue to grow like a living organism. Their marketplace offers a huge number of apps and extensions built by the community and designed to accommodate the specific needs of their users. These provide diverse options like additional ransomware protection, notification and alert assignation, and integration with other popular applications. Since these can be mixed and matched at your whim, you can make your ownCloud platform completely your own. They also offer themes which provide you with the means to change the aesthetic look of your user interface and set up a design that more accurately reflects the branding style of your business. The company takes security seriously. ownCloud offers both master key and credential based encryption so you can keep your information safe from prying eyes.
