Our experience with Glasscubes has been an extremely positive one since the moment I first spoke to Craig. He conducted two online presentations, which having sold software for 18 years, I think are some of the best I have had. Clear, concise, informative, in plain english and no hard sell (just let the product do the work for him!). The implementation and on-boarding process is both intuitive and straight forward with lots of support both from the team and from online content, which is excellent. Nothing is too much trouble for our primary contacts. Pound for pound, Glasscubes exceeds expectation and I can only imagine will get better and better. Yes there are improvements that can be made but their 'vote for new functionality' that clients can access will enable them to prioritise and gauge what to do next. We are a team of 13 and the overwhelming feedback has been really positive from the whole company and has made us far more collaborative, centralising all our work and creating a focal point for our company. I very much look forward to working with Glasscubes for many years to come and if they maintain their standards, they will become a real force in this market and a natural choice for small SMEs.
- Easy of use - Breadth of Functionality - Amazing support - Great supporting documentation - Cross platform and device availability
- would like to see smoother integration with MS Office suite (both on PC and Mac). I appreciate refinements to this process are ongoing. Working on a Mac, it this is slightly clunky but really not a deal breaker in anyway.
Thank you for your review. Just as an update for you, we are currently developing our Microsoft Office 365 integration. We anticipate it being launched towards the end of this quarter.

It is a good system here has been some bugs but generally, the security and structure is better for our organisation than relying on google drive
It is an excellent way to store documents by department, and limit access to certain documents by junior staff
Multiple parties can not edit the same document at the same time as it locks to one user- unlike google docs

We have struggled internally with employee communication. Glasscubes provided the solution to this problem. Now, we are able to communicate daily with our employees and have all files in one space instead of employees having to travel to a managers office.
Ease of use and compatibility. Our employees were able to adapt quickly and we have received positive feedback. We have dedicated dashboards for each department and all of our files are stored here.
Image on news/update section distorts as the same image is used for two different sizes.
Thank you for your feedback. It is possible to crop the news article images separately, so that neither is distorted. Here are some instructions for you: https://support.glasscubes.com/en/articles/1117735-dashboard-updates-news-articles. Don't hesitate to reach out to us if you need any assistance with that.

Ease of set-up and simple cost model. Sharing documents with suppliers is non chargeable license. Fast on boarding
Poor versioning, real basic desktop UI, poor integration with mobile platforms
Likelihood to recommend: 6/10
The key benefits is that all the documents we need to access and use can all be stored in one place for everyone to access. My life has been made simpler as I have just one place to go to find the information I need. I can also do this on-the-go which is ideal for me as I work away from the office most days.
The programme is really easy to navigate and the functionality is simple to use. There is also a search facility which I find really useful. I also like the fact that you can communicate easily with colleagues via the message system or leave comments against files to inform others of any changes, etc. This is particularly useful if you work in a virtual network or team. There is also an app that you can download on your phone or tablet so you can access files on the move.
The only downside I have found is that I need to download documents to edit and then re upload, but that is down to my institution not the programme itself. The system can be accessed on a desktop if you work for an institution which allows it.

When team members connect in an online community, they’re better able to share knowledge and make smarter business decisions. Glasscubes creates the online communities that professional teams are using to thrive. The web-based software allows users to instantly share information in a way that’s fast, secure, reliable, and accurate.
Designed for disparate groups of people who need a way of sharing information, collaborating, and working together, Glasscubes improves the transfer of knowledge and drives innovation. Key features, like secure file storage, document management, task and project management, team collaboration, and intranet/extranet functionality work in concert to boost productivity within teams.
Glasscubes is web-based software that gives teams a strategic and effective way to collaborate, share and store information in the cloud. Private online storage and content control give users easy access to their own documents and other information, regardless of the devices they’re using.
Glasscubes is often used by professional groups that are looking for central, secure locations to save and share files. The platform is especially flexible, as there are no restrictions on the types of files that users can store and no limit on individual file sizes. Files can be uploaded in bulk or emailed into the cloud on an individual basis. Not only does Glasscubes prevent team members from working on different versions of the same file simultaneously, which can have disastrous results, but it promotes collaboration and teamwork with internal messaging features and activity feeds for teams. Because the app encourages social interactions, it is ideally suited for businesses that want to improve community and increase productivity.
Teams now enjoy far greater security when they store files in the cloud than when they store them on desktops or company servers. Glasscubes provides secure cloud storage to its users, with no limits on file sizes or restrictions on the types of documents that users can upload.
Once you’ve uploaded your work files to Glasscubes, you’ll have a central repository that can be accessed from any device with an internet connection. Every file you upload to Glasscubes is version controlled, which prevents colleagues from accidentally working on older versions of a document that you have shared. An Offline File Sync feature is also available as an option if you’d like to have the files you worked on while you were offline automatically synced to the workspace the next time you have an internet connection.
Email has been replaced. For teams that work at lightning speed, instant chat and activity feeds are much more effective ways to communicate. Glasscubes’ team collaboration software allows users to post relevant communication publicly, so all of their colleagues can see and respond in real-time.
To get the most use out of Glasscubes, you should move all of your work conversations into the platform. Workspace activity feeds ensure that everyone is caught up on the latest announcements, with a real-time summary of what’s happening that includes discussions, questions, and comments displayed with quick links for easy contribution. Instant chat is also available for more one-on-one conversations, such as when you want to make arrangements or send updates on a project to a specific colleague.
The time it takes to complete projects decreases when people have all the required resources at hand. Glasscubes has been designed to support growing teams, with comprehensive task management, file sharing, and scheduling tools. All of these tools are accessible from a centralized online dashboard.
Use Glasscubes’ task management tool to assign tasks and set priorities. You can assign tasks to individuals or groups. Advanced features also allow you to set task dependencies, use Gantt charts, and run critical path analysis to keep projects on track. Dividing your workspace into separate projects, each with distinct activities, is another way to manage projects in a secure and confidential manner.
Glasscubes serves as a cloud-based alternative to traditional intranets and extranets. The software brings teams together inside shared workspaces, which encourages social interactions and boosts productivity. White-label solutions let companies customize their accounts, workspaces, and communication, as well.
Whereas intranets have a reputation for being difficult to navigate, Glasscubes is the opposite. The platform uses a simple interface, and there’s no IT setup, maintenance, or support required. When you invite team members to join a workspace, you’ll be able to share files, assign tasks, and organize files securely. Workspaces, much like intranets, are an ideal solution if you work with different groups of people, projects, or even events.
Currently, Glasscubes supports bespoke integration only.
Glasscubes offers a free 30-day trial for new users, with full features, unlimited workspaces, and telephone support. Three paid editions are available. The Team edition costs £25 per month, and it includes five users. The Workgroup edition costs £50 per month, and it also includes five users. Finally, the Enterprise edition starts at £100 per month, with the number of users subject to the plan.
