ShareMode from OfficeDesktop

File server with smart collaboration that you can
access securely, anywhere, anytime

ShareMode File Server for Businesses

ShareMode is a business-class file server in the Cloud. It is designed to replace the company file server that many businesses have traditionally maintained on premises. It is more than just a plain file sharing solution and supports features like automatic file locking, document editing from the Web interface and finely tuned permissions, among others. It is one of the most affordable solutions in the marketplace and our unlimited user plans free you from having to add and subtract user licenses every time an employee joins or leaves your organization.

File Server in the Cloud

Hundreds of businesses like yours are moving their files to ShareMode. They are eliminating their in-house file servers to work smartly and to save money. Unlike consumer-grade solutions, we support features like Group Folders to store company files, automatic file locking to prevent users from over-writing shared files, and folder-level permissions. Our desktop client for Windows is the best in the market and used by many Fortune 100 companies. We will provide free migration of all your folders and files when you make the move to ShareMode.

Access your folders and files on the Web, on your desktop, or your favorite mobile device. Anywhere. Anytime.

Optional Collaboration

ShareMode is more than just file sharing. Each of your users can create calendars, contact lists, and task lists. They can even share them with each other or with people outside the organization. When you enable sharing of calendars, contact lists, and tasks lists, your ShareMode becomes an intranet, an extranet, or whatever you want to call a powerful collaboration solution. At no extra charge.

Unlimited User Plans

Our unlimited user plans free you from the worry of having to add and subtract client licenses each time a new employee joins or leaves. Our unlimited user plans let you create as many users, Teamspaces, guest users and folders as your business needs. Choose a plan that matches your storage requirements. If you exceed the limit, you can upgrade or purchase additional storage in 100 GB increments. ShareMode can scale up or down with your needs.

Multiple Ways to Share

Share files the way you want. You can share an individual file with a secure link, with or without an expiration date. You can share a folder with finely-tuned permissions (Read, Create, Edit, Delete, Manage) with users inside and outside your organization. Users can share folders with each other and administrators can set up group folders (with subfolders) for the entire organization. You can also create Teamspaces that are workspaces not tied to individual users to share files, calendars and contacts with users inside and outside your organization.

Enterprise Grade Security

We understand that we are the custodians of your folders and files. We encrypt your files both during transport and at rest. Only users authorized by you can access them. All folders and files are stored in carrier-grade Equinix data centers. We backup your folders and files every day going back 30 days. This allows for easy retrieval of folders and files if one of your users accidentally purged an important document.

Mobile and Desktop Apps

Access your folders and files the way you want. On the Web. On your Desktop. On your Mobile Device. You choose. Our desktop client for Windows is one of the most sophisticated clients and is used by many Fortune 100 companies. It supports automatic file locking, automatic refreshing of folder content, and folder-level permissions. Just like the file server in your office. Our Apps for iPhone, iPad and Android devices let you access and email files from your smartphone or tablet.

Automatic File Locking

This single feature is the main reason why hundreds of businesses have abandoned Google and DropBox in favor of ShareMode. When a user opens a file to edit it, it is automatically locked. Other users can only access a Read-Only version of the same file. When the file is closed after editing, it is automatically unlocked, checked back in, and another user can edit it. ShareMode is one of the very few Cloud-based file server solutions that supports automatic file locking.

EasyEdit File Editing

If you like the convenience of editing files directly from a browser, our EasyEdit solution lets you do this. The only requirement is that you have the application you want to edit with installed on your computer (e.g., Microsoft Word). For example, on the Web interface, simply click the “Edit” icon (a pencil). If you have Java from Oracle installed, you can edit the document from the Web interface without any manual download or upload. Works on both PCs and Macs. EasyEdit now supports automatic file locking and unlocking.

Teamspaces and Guest Users

Teamspaces are nothing more than workspaces that are not tied to a particular user. For example, you can create a Teamspace for your client or vendor and then put files in folders within this Teamspace. Set them up as a guest user in your ShareMode account and they can access the information explicitly made available to this Teamspace. No other information can be accessed. Teamspaces can be created to support projects, clients, vendors, and departments. They are similar to intranets and extranets that you may be familiar with. Our unlimited user plans let you create as many Teamspaces as you need.

Finely Tuned Permissions

Unlike consumer-grade file sharing solutions, you can define finely-tuned permissions at the folder level. In increasing order, permissions are: Read, Create, Edit, Delete, Manage. You can create permissions at Groups, Departments or Locations levels as well. This way you don’t have to worry about permissions whenever a new employee joins. Simply make them a member of Groups, Departments or Locations, as appropriate, and they will automatically inherit the permissions of whatever user groups they belong to.

Flexible Storage Plans

One of the great advantages of Cloud solutions in general is elasticity. This means you should only have to buy the computing or storage that you actually need. ShareMode plans are created with this benefit in mind. Our standard plans range between 50 GB and 500 GB of storage. You can create custom plans (just contact sales) if you need larger plans. We have found that the storage need of most small to medium sized businesses is between 100 GB and 250 GB.

Can I map ShareMode to my desktop?

Yes. You can use our client for Windows to map a drive on your PC. On Macs, we recommend a solution called CyberDuck that is available free of charge. It is one of the most popular file sharing solutions for Macs.

What happens if I reach the storage limit?

You can always upgrade to a larger plan. If you need additional storage after reaching the limits of our largest generally available plan, you also have the option of purchasing storage in 100 GB increments. Just contact support or sales. We can also design custom plans up to 5 TB of storage.

Can I customize the login page of my ShareMode account?

Absolutely. You can customize colors, logos and even slogans. This can be done by the Administrator of your account in the Administrator control panel.
