Glasscubes, a privately funded UK company, today announced that its online-based collaboration software now allows users to synchronise calendars directly with Google Calendars, or to view (read only) events in other calendaring applications that support the iCal format.
Remote working is becoming increasingly popular and many business executives spend a lot of time working at home or on the road. Remote working is seen as a key factor driving corporate success, resulting in reduced costs and increased employee productivity. But remote workers need full access to the corporate network to remain productive, which includes managing calendars.
Whenever you create, edit or delete an event in either Glasscubes or Google Calendar, it will synchronise into both so you will see them from both access points, said Wayne Pope, Managing Director at Glasscubes. For convenience and peace of mind, the synchronisations are automatic and calendars sync every time you enter your Glasscubes account. Ultimately, this means you no longer have to duplicate events or meetings in multiple calendars, helping to minimise time and errors.
Glasscubes was founded to help small and medium-size businesses be more productive without exploding their budget. The easy-to-use hosted software brings together branded intranet, document management, project management and simple CRM (customer relationship management). Whether looking to manage projects, teams or customers in an office environment or remotely, Glasscubes is flexible enough to meet a wide range of requirements.
Glasscubes lets team members edit documents online, preview a document without the need for downloading, send messages directly to each other, schedules meetings, share calendars, arrange conference calls, as well as create or assign tasks to other members of a team. A poll can be created to find out what colleagues think of an opinion or suggestion, and reminder alerts can be sent via e-mail or SMS to draw attention.
Pricing and availability
Glasscubes is priced for companies of all sizes. The entry level version is free and there are several low-cost monthly subscription packages. A no-obligation 28-day trial is also available on all accounts (no credit card needed).
