All of your files synced across all of your devices.
If you have more than one workstation - desktop, laptop, tablet or phone - you know how difficult it is to keep files in sync. You end up hunting for the most recent version of a document in your emails, and clutter up your inbox with dozens of copies of the same file.
Eventually, you start looking for a cloud solution that handles file syncing, like iCloud Drive, Dropbox, Box.net, Google Drive or Skydrive.
Backstage replaces these cloud storage solutions with an open-source, zero-licensing collaboration solution.
Backstage lets you access your organization’s files from anywhere using a web browser. It also lets you keep local folders that sync with multiple Macs, PCs, iPhones and iPads. You always have an offline copy of everything, and you never have to worry about versions.
How we beat the competition.
You can use whatever app you want to create your documents. We don’t force you to “dumb down” your collaborative documents to meet our requirements.
Like everything else Backstage, there are no limits on downloads, no maximum file transfer quotas, and no rate limiting for heavy users.
That’s right: we have universal health care and more stringent privacy laws than our neighbours. Your data is secured against prying eyes and corporate interests.
You can use Backstage for all kinds of things.
Drag an expense report, receipt or invoice into a folder on your PC, and have it magically appear on your CFO’s laptop moments later.
Prepare curated collections of promotional material, brochures and white papers so your salesforce always has the most recent assets.
Low on disk space? Keep your most important files and folders synced, and download rarely-used or gigantic files from the web when you need them.
Send links to large files instead of attaching them to emails. Your inbox will thank you, and your recipient will always download the most recent version.
Hand-craft collections of documents to share with stakeholders, prospective clients and members of the public.
Ensure your organization’s files are being backed up. If a device is lost or stolen, you can restore and recover everything.
Never ask or wait for a teammate to send you a document. It’s already been synced with your devices. Focus on your job, and trust in your team.
Use your preferred apps to work on your files, even when you aren’t connected to the internet, and automatically sync changes once you get back online.
Share files and folders that require a password to open, and that auto-expire after an arbitrary period of time.
