The online alternative to an intranet or extranet Bringing everyone together in an online workplace.
Glasscubes is inexpensive, quick to implement and actually encourages social interaction. It’s ideal for businesses that want to improve communication and increase productivity.
So why is Glasscubes different to an intranet?
Intranets have a reputation for being cumbersome and underutilised. In contrast Glasscubes is user-friendly, with a simple interface that’s intuitive to use and requires no training. Our cloud-based platform is accessible from anywhere, on any device that has an internet browser. Unlike a traditional intranet, there’s no IT setup, maintenance or support required.
What’s a workspace and why do you need one?
A workspace is a secure online area which you invite people to join so that you can share files, assign tasks, manage projects, communicate and organise schedules. You can invite colleagues, customers or suppliers, in fact anyone that you need to communicate and share information with regularly. Workspaces make it easy to work with different groups of people, projects or events.
Branding – Make it your own
We understand the importance of promoting your brand and realise that it should be reflected in everything you do. It’s easy to customise your account, workspaces and communications to promote yourself, rather than us. In addition to this, our Enterprise Edition can be totally white labelled, creating added value by promoting Glasscubes as an extension of your organisation's own technology.
A social environment for your business
Bringing all of your information together in one place builds relationships, nobody misses out on vital information and everyone has a clear voice; which in turn builds a social environment that stimulates collaboration.
Teams doing great things with Glasscubes
Glasscubes for mobile users
The beauty of Glasscubes being in the cloud is that you can access your account from any device with an internet browser. Set up and assign tasks, download and modify files, manage your shared calendars and join in discussions. Smartphone users also have the option of a mobile site which they may find easier to navigate than our full site.
We understand that the security of our customer’s data is critical and this continues to be our number one priority. We are UK Government approved and accredited by UKAS with the ISO/IEC 27001 Information Security Management Systems certification. All of your data is remotely backed up and access to our service uses high grade SSL encryption to ensure secure data transfer.
More than a contact directory
Glasscubes gives you “Connect”; a central place to share your organisation’s contacts. Use it to store information on colleagues, partners, customers and suppliers. It has Customer Relationship Management (CRM) functionality built in, so you can manage individuals and their companies, track sales opportunities, manage customer issues and log email communications.
Bringing businesses together
Extranets are distinct from intranets in that they are intended for users outside of the company, whereas an intranet's users are typically internal. Glasscubes can be used as either an intranet or extranet. Invite customers, associates or suppliers, in fact anyone that you need to communicate and share information with regularly.
Cloud computing and related technologies are becoming increasingly attractive to smaller businesses, and it’s not hard to see why. This trend is simply following in the footsteps of all of the technological advances of the last few decades – designed to, among other things, help smaller businesses compete more effectively with large corporations. And it works.
The Dreaded Group Project – Why Group Work Is No Longer to be Feared
When we think back to our college days, there are a few memories that make most of us cringe. That early morning exam after a late night of partying.… that extra-long reading assignment over Easter break that you knew you weren’t going to read… These memories, and others, come readily to mind, but there is one memory that typically rears its head only when we’re reminded of it: the dreaded group project.
Most of us would really rather not have to have big meetings. However, they are sometimes hard to avoid when you need to discuss something critical, or you need to make an important decision. While meeting together is sometimes essential, it can also be an expensive and time-consuming business.
