Hive is a new application that is used to increase productivity among team members. Within Hive, almost every action required to push teamwork ahead has been made available. It brings communication, file storage and external tools together in one space, helping everybody stay on the same page. Hive integrates external systems into the Dashboard, helping people concentrate on their work instead of remembering passwords, granting access, sending invitations and switching between tabs. Almost one hundred external tools can be integrated into Hive.
Features, Benefits, Product Strengths
- File Storage and Ease of Sharing – Hive offers options for storing all files and folders together, and provides integration with cloud storage devices already in use. Using Hive allows users to see all of their communication with team members directly on the Dashboard. This includes all messages, files and actions.
