Avoid conflicts with UK data protection laws

Unusually, UK data protection laws  directly conflict  with US homeland security laws. The US laws state that the US government can access to your data at any time. UK data protection laws actively prohibit that if your data contains any aspect whatsoever of personal information. Consequently, companies within the UK are in danger of violating their own professional and compliance standards. What is more worrying is that in many cases it is not obvious where your data is being stored. You may purchase a service such as dropbox within the UK, without any guarantees that your data remains within the UK or even within the EU,  this can cause companies to inadvertently breach their own compliance standards and commitments to their clients with serious consequences

Alternative to Dropbox – Even better than

Dropbox forces you to synchronise your files, with Collabor8online is an alternative to dropbox where synchronisation is an option. You can work on a document, prepare it, perfect it and when you’re ready you can share it by pushing it to Collabor8online. Alternatively, you can synchronise folders from your PC with Collabor8online if you prefer to work that way. Collabor8online gives you the choice.

In everyday applications, this becomes extremely relevant. You may be working on a document, drawing, image or piece of design work but you continue to work on it, it’s essential that you keep that content private to ensure the integrity of both your data and your project. Collabor8online allows you to work privately for as long as you like, if necessary you may use Collabor8online to get your document approved once you’ve produced a completed draft. Only when you are satisfied that your document is ready, and it is been approved in accordance with your own quality control standards, would you publish it within the appropriate area of Collabor8online. The most popular method for making this work is simplicity itself. Users create folders with descriptions as “Documents – for approval” and “Documents – approved” –  Collabor8online even allows you to move or copy documents from one folder to another once they are approved.

Version Control

When a document is uploaded the version number is automatically incremented. System administrators can accept the updated version or, if they wish, revert to an earlier version of the document using our version control software. Users only ever see the most current version, this reduces errors and minimises the possibility of costly mistakes.

When new versions are issued, push notifications inform users and stakeholders that a new version is available. A comprehensive audit trail tracks user activity, confirming to administrators that new documents have been successfully distributed and downloaded by users.
