SmartBox Communications

Real-Time Unified Communications Built-In

Sharing content is usually only the first step in business. Communicating and collaborating with people you've shared the information with completes the cycle. Unfortunately, for most businesses, communicating and collaborating become endless loops of "phone tag" and "email replies". SmartBox's integrated unified communications and collaboration features eliminate wasted time trying to connect.

Once you share your content to a group of share users, SmartBox shows you every share user's contact information and presents real-time presence for each share user. Know instantly when people are available and then use Streams ConnectMe feature to instantly call, IM, video conference, email or deskshare with the share group or an individual share user.

Combined with SmartBox's enhanced event notification capability, you can instantly be notified when a share user views or downloads your shared content and then with a simple click of a button, call them or video conference them. The power of sharing and communicating in a single solution!

  • Instantly see full contact information of who you've shared content with
  • Instantly see real-time presence of people you've shared content with
  • Video/Audio Call, conference, IM, SMS, email or deskshare a share user or share group instantly
  • Enhanced event notification informs you when someone has viewed your content and then allows you to call them with a click of a button

Outlook/SmartBox File Attachment Link

Outlook/IM File Attachment

Ever try to send a large file attachment in Outlook, or any email client for that matter, and get a "failed mail delivery" because the receiver's mailbox is full or can't take the large file? That's a thing of the past with SmartBox. With SmartBox's Outlook plugin, you can attach files through SmartBox such that all you really send is a link to the file (in SmartBox). You can send a single file or multiple files with ease.

Ever send a file and then want to update it or "take it back!" You can't do either when a file is attached using the old fashion method, but with SmartBox, you can do both with ease. Simply unshare the file and the recipients can no longer access the file. Or update the file in your "/communications/attachments" folder and the updated file is instantly available to all email recipients. You can even "time out" the file and have it unshare at a future date and time. With SmartBox, you're in control!

And Streams attach file feature is also available in the secure Streams messaging service, so you can send single, multiple files or even folders through Streams to another SmartBox user with equal ease.
