Seatte, WA (PRWEB) September 18, 2013
Onehub, the online file sharing solution for businesses, recently published a case study showcasing their client Hilco Industrial, LLC, a company that handles machinery and equipment disposition services for the alternative energy, technology, automotive, and utilities industries. The case study can be viewed at https://onehub.com/customers/hilco-industrial.
Hilco Industrial has learned to take advantage of the cloud to make their business more economical. They initially signed up for a 14 day trial at Onehub so they could replace email for sharing files. Once they started using the service, they learned about cloud-based data rooms and decided to switch to Onehub for good.
Hilco Industrial typically has many projects running at different offices around the United States. They needed an online file sharing solution that allowed them to share files, videos, and images for their projects in an easy and secure way.
“The trial had already shown us how easy Onehub is to use,” says Valery Moody, director of operations at Hilco Industrial. “Then we saw that we could assign outside employees with passwords and access, set their permissions, plus brand it with our own company logo. The package was very attractive.”
Once the 14 day trial with Onehub was over, Hilco Industrial picked the Onehub Business plan so they could use the data room for their secure and controllable online file sharing. Onehub allows them to handle complex projects and control security at a granular level. This enables them to use role-based permissions in order to control access to pictures, videos, confidentiality agreements, documentation and contracts related to the sale.
“We post a lot of proprietary information that we don’t want to give out to just anybody,” says Moody. “Onehub helps us easily control access to these files.”
When internal marketing groups need to share information regarding a client, Hilco sets up internal-only Onehub workspaces. With Onehub, Moody’s teams are able to use workgroup-based document editing. This functionality allows project spreadsheets to be easily updated in real-time.
Hilco likes the fact that Onehub gives them the ability to share information across their widespread and mobile workforce. “It’s really easy to set up a workspace for everyone to use no matter where they are. I just drag and drop to upload documents, and then set permissions. Whether our people work from an office or with mobile devices, they can get the documents they need more easily than through email.”
When searching for an online file sharing solution, Hilco looked at several different solutions. None of the other solutions offered the pricing, ease-of-use, or level of control that Onehub provides.
“Comparing the features and costs of our Onehub solution to what a proprietary or full data room product would have been, it’s clear that Onehub offers a significant value in monthly savings,” says Moody. “It’s easy, it’s economical, and it does exactly what we need at this point in time.”
