Content Circles is a team collaboration software-as-a-service (SaaS). With Content Circles, employees of different companies can share, collaborate, track, and manage content in secure Circles (workspaces). Circle members are all peers but have different access rights and control over content. A Store-and-Forward node can deliver content to receivers when all other members are offline. Includes enterprise connectors for Microsoft SharePoint, Alfresco, and Xerox DocuShare.

Content Circles offers a host of benefits to you and your team.

Get your team or supply chain off the ground in record time

Simply create a circle or accept an invitation to an existing circle and you're well on your way to collaborating with your co-workers, clients or channel partners. Content Circles is designed to work securely and confidentially across firewalls, and all access is controlled by the circle owner.

Manage content the way YOU want it to be managed

Documents and files are delivered to all team members in a very structured way with Content Circles software. This ensures everyone has access to the latest files, and knows where they are! You retain all document versions and comments, and real-time status indicators let you know what's changed, what's waiting for you to review, or what has been downloaded to your computer.

Securely facilitate your extended team collaboration

Content Circles is the ideal solution where regulations or business processes limit the use of e-mail and web-hosted solutions for file sharing. With Content Circles, your files reside only on circle members' computers and files are encrypted during synchronization among those computers. Furthermore, when you delete a file from a circle it is removed from other circle members computers as well — unlike e-mail, you retain management rights over your content even after it's been pushed out to the extended team!

Send and receive very large files

Content Circles is the simplest way to send and receive very large files — there is no theoretical limit to the file size and storage is only limited by available disk space! Simply create a circle, invite the intended recipients to the circle, and copy the large files into that circle. You never have to burn and ship a CD/DVD, or use external FTP or Web sites, again.

Maximize your investment in enterprise applications

Content Circles seamlessly integrates with e-mail applications, enterprise repositories and online storage services for greater productivity. Files from your local hard disk, network drives, Microsoft SharePoint, Alfresco, Xerox DocuShare and other content repositories can be combined in a single circle. As files are updated, Content Circles can synchronize those changes back to the source repositories with the push of a button.
