Pros

We have been using Glasscubes now for a few months and have found the software easy to use intuitive and powerful, Support is fantastic and the pricing model really suits a high tech SME like AIE.
Glasscubes is a fantastic Platform for our team, the ability to be able to communicate, share folders and files is brilliant.
Glasscubes has proved to be extremely beneficial for the company I work for. It is very user friendly, they are great at communicating updates etc and it looks appealing.

Pros

As good or better than any other wordprocessing software. The bonus is that it seamlessly integrates with other google software.
Some of the most prominent features of this app are. It's powerful and has a very elegant and simple user interface.
I love how easy it is to use and how file sharing is super integrated. The quality for the cost of the product is super.

Cons

Cannot flag notifications to come back to later so they get lost. Files can become muddled in groups as there is no system to the updated versions.
That I wasted so much time doing this all manually before I'd heard of Glasscubes.
Before having Glasscubes it was quite difficult for the committee members to review documents, contact the whole group when we weren’t having a videoconference and have virtually instant contact.

Cons

Some options are missing from it, but that is to be expected from a web-based app. The only thing I dislike is how hard it is to open the documents generated in Google Docs through other software.
The icons are small and it's easy to accidentally press the wrong button or hit the wrong combination of keystrokes and change the menu into tiny icons with no explanations.
Many companies block people from using Google Sheets. I am not sure if it is a security issue or why, but it is very frustrating when your documents are there and the site is blocked.

Glasscubes

Great for collaborative work!

Reviewed a year ago

Very pleased.

Pros

If you like that Google Docs allows you to collaborate on a shared document--glasscubes offers the same but with many more functionalities. Being able to write directly into a word document, for instance.

Cons

I would like to be able to receive a digest of changes that have occured rather than turning the notification by email on or off.

Vendor response

Hi Michel, Thank you for your review and feedback. Just to let you know, you can opt to receive notifications as a daily or weekly summary if you prefer. Here is some more information for you: https://support.glasscubes.com/en/articles/1117746-notification-settings Best regards, The Glasscubes Team

Glasscubes, Customised platform for organisation collaboration

Reviewed 2 months ago

It has a customised layout system which is professional and easy to store and locate documents, the limitations with not being able to have multiple people editing a document and inability to share a document for editing outside of the organisation means this product is weaker than when compared to google docs.

Pros

The high security and protection of key documents, as well as the function that allows you to share documents with juniors or other people without giving there the ability to download or edit the original. Also the documents on Glasscubes can be uploaded in versions, so previous versions can be tracked and secured when needed.

Cons

It is very frustrating to share with other organisations who do not have the permission to access and edit the document as they are not a Glasscubes user, this makes cross-collaboration hard. Also if multiple people work on the same document- at the same time, you will get kicked out and it will become locked to the main editor, so again- not good for multi-person editing and collaboration.

Vendor response

Hi Samuel, Thank you for your review and feedback. I wanted to reach out to you to address your frustrations. It is possible to securely share information from Glasscubes with external organisations, using our 'secure share link' feature. If you need to edit and collaborate with external parties, please contact your account administrator and request that they be added to your workspace. When editing a file Glasscubes locks that file, so that other users cannot edit it at the same time, this protects the versioning of the document. During that time the file can still be viewed online, or downloaded by other users. If you use Office 365, it is also possible to co-edit documents, in much the same way as you can with Google Docs. All the best, the Glasscubes Team.
