Amazon WorkDocs is a fully managed, secure enterprise storage and sharing service with strong administrative controls and feedback capabilities that improve user productivity.
Users can comment on files, send them to others for feedback, and upload new versions without having to resort to emailing multiple versions of their files as attachments. Users can take advantage of these capabilities wherever they are, using the device of their choice, including PCs, Macs, tablets and phones. Amazon WorkDocs offers IT administrators the option of integrating with existing corporate directories, flexible sharing policies and control of the location where data is stored. Customers can get started using Amazon WorkDocs with a 30-day free trial providing 1 TB of storage per user for up to 50 users.
Amazon WorkDocs offers an Administrative SDK, currently in public preview. The Administrative SDK allows you to integrate your applications with Amazon WorkDocs by performing content and permissions updates, and managing users, programmatically. You can sign-up for the public preview here.
Users can comment on files, send them to others for feedback, and upload new versions without having to resort to emailing multiple versions of their files as attachments. Users can comment on specific content in a file, reply to comments, send private comments, and format comments for emphasis. They can also lock the document to prevent it from receiving further feedback. Amazon WorkDocs notifies contributors about review activities and deadlines via email, and offers rich versioning capabilities.
Amazon WorkDocs provides users with a central location, with 1 TB of storage, for both the documents and files they are reviewing as well as those they own and are soliciting feedback on. With all these files in one location, reviewers have access to all of the related feedback in a single web view, making reading or contributing comments as simple as a few clicks.
Users can access files stored in Amazon WorkDocs and view and leave feedback on files anywhere, anytime, from the device of their choice. Users can leverage the Amazon WorkDocs apps for iPad, Kindle Fire, and Android tablets. The Amazon WorkDocs Sync client lets users have files saved on their computer automatically uploaded to Amazon WorkDocs over an encrypted connection and synced across their other devices.
Priced at $5 per user per month, including 1 TB of storage, Amazon WorkDocs is a low cost solution that is also fully managed. This means that there is no hardware to purchase and maintain and no software to deploy. You simply enable Amazon WorkDocs for your organization and invite users. A 30-day free trial for up to 50 users with 1 TB of storage per user is available to help you get started.
Amazon WorkDocs offers flexible security settings and access controls to manage data storage and sharing. You can use policies to control users’ sharing behavior and choose the AWS region where your users’ data is stored. All data is encrypted in transit and at rest, and users don’t have to send documents as email attachments.
Amazon WorkDocs can integrate with your existing Active Directory. This means that your users can easily access Amazon WorkDocs using their existing Active Directory credentials, and allows you to control which users in your organization are permitted to access the service.
