Brother International, best known for printers, has launched another online offering for small businesses – BR-DOCS which is a web document storage solution. From what i will tell corresponding to Box and Dropbox .
BR-DOCS is optimized to work with Brother Printers, a plus for those using Brother Printers and enables three broad capabilities:
- Manage all files in a single secure location. Users can control and create groups, provide access and conduct key word searches to locate files. Users could also assign tasks to automate workflow management
- Collaborate with colleagues by creating specific workspaces to ask users, add documents, assign and manage content. Users may also initiate discussions around the entire organization
- Digitize documents by scanning and saving searchable files and supply access to clients who’re not BR-Docs users
Dropbox and Box hold commanding leads inside the online file storage market. Like Microsoft Word, “everyone” is using Dropbox which further pushes an exponential choice of MORE users to take advantage of Dropbox – to be compatible.
So what’s the upside of BR-DOCS over competing services?
BR-DOCS offers the facility to tag documents, thus looking for them more easily and it seems that to enable great control over how the documents are shared.
If you’re simply searching for a file sharing tool – very nearly any online file sharing service will work. But when you’re seeking a document management solution – you must consider BR-DOCS and other robust solutions similar to those from Neat, Fujitsu, Epson and Lexmark.
