An increasing number of small businesses intending to implement cloud services are turning to cable and ISPs to provide them with easy access to the cloud. Cloud storage has therefore opened a huge area of opportunity for the internet service providers.
But building a cloud storage platform from scratch is an expensive and time-consuming task. OfficeDrop, a provider of online cloud storage and digital filing system, has come up with a new custom small business online cloud storage solution, allowing Cable and ISPs to get to the cloud in just a few months.
Cambridge, MA-based OfficeDrop makes it easy for small businesses to scan paper to the cloud and access documents from anywhere, at any time, from any device. OfficeDrop's cloud filing cabinet lets users sort, search and share documents – facilitating a paperless document collaboration environment.
OfficeDrop’s new cloud storage solution gives OEM partners access to a robust cloud storage backend, a full-featured online storage account for consumers with search, sync and sharing capabilities and comprehensive online storage including file search engine, labels and cloud metadata, multi-user accounts and more, the company stated in a press release.
Integrating with an ISP's current products and services, the cloud storage solution also eases billing and account management, and integration with current ecommerce engines.
OfficeDrop’s solution comes with customizable pricing plans featuring freemium – free trials and multiple pricing tiers to fit market needs.
“Cloud SaaS (News - Alert) apps are a $14.5-billion industry, and customers are looking to trusted technology partners like ISPs for solutions. But building a cloud storage platform and apps from scratch is incredibly expensive and time-consuming. OfficeDrop has experience building custom-branded cloud solutions that support millions of file uploads per month,” explained OfficeDrop CEO Prasad Thammineni.
OfficeDrop recently announced it has touched the 100,000-user mark for its cloud filing cabinet software. The company touched the 50,000 users mark in November 2012, achieving an incredible growth rate of a 100 percent in users who prefer to store their paper in OfficeDrop’s searchable cloud, in just three months.
