One of the big problems with using e-mail to collaborate with colleagues, is that associated files and documents are hard to track. Versions get convoluted, and if you miss an e-mail you could easily find yourself working off the wrong version.
Cloud storage was supposed to fix that—but didn’t. One still finds oneself asking for version clarification from the author from time to time.
FileChat, presenting its product at the Disrupt 2015 event, is a collaboration tool that runs over-the-top of cloud platforms Dropbox and Google Drive. It allows chat-like collaboration within the file system.
The idea is that you can discuss documents, pictures and videos stored in the cloud, without leaving the cloud environment.
