Cortado Workplace Transformed into a Central Document Hub
With increased online storage, a WebDAV connection and additional premium services, Cortado Workplace now becomes a cross-platform file and printing system
Mobile business expert Cortado today announces its new, free and premium services for its popular app Cortado Workplace. Cortado developed the Workplace app into a cross-platform document hub with increased free online storage and support of WebDAV access. Additional premium services for creating PDF and zip files as well as faxing and further bookable online storage are available for as little as €1.99 / US$2.59.
With over 80,000 active users, Cortado Workplace has become one of the leading business apps for mobile devices. As of now, free online storage has been doubled to 2GB and without the previous 3MB upload limit. Thanks to new WebDAV access, Cortado Workplace can be easily set-up as an online drive on your PC, Mac or notebook. No software installation is necessary, effectively meaning Cortado Workplace can now be used as a ‘cloud’ USB Stick.
Users can easily transfer files from one PC to another by simple drag and drop to the WebDAV drive, allowing immediate access to these documents when on the road. It is especially convenient for iPad users as apps such as Numbers, Pages and Keynote can load documents directly from the Cortado Workplace WebDAV drive and save them there again after having edited them.
Numerous additional premium services are now also available for Android, BlackBerry and Symbian. Users can increase their online storage to 5 or 10GB or create PDF and zip files directly with their mobile devices. Additionally, fax packages for sending faxes directly from smartphones and tablets are available as well.
“With these additions we launch a platform-independent, cloud-based file and printing system for the smartphone app age”, said Dirk Löwenberg, Business Director Online Sales and Services. “No matter what combination of smartphone, tablet or PC one has, Cortado Workplace provides a central storage location that all devices can access. What was unthinkable until recently is now not only possible, but is also easy: saving attachments from your BlackBerry smartphone, then reading them on the Galaxy Tab; or creating a PowerPoint presentation on a Windows desktop, then presenting it with Keynote on the iPad. While traveling to a customer, the presentation can be converted on a BlackBerry smartphone into PDF and sent in advance to the customer. The possibilities are endless.”
Premium services are available for Android, BlackBerry, and Nokia with more services for Apple iOS following shortly. The free and enhanced Cortado Workplace features are available for iPhone, iPad, iPod touch, Android, Nokia, and BlackBerry smartphones.
