Collaboration Tools Product Review- Skarpline

Collaboration-Tools-Product-review-skarplineSkarpline is a communication platform for startups and small business to carry out their communication through a single web app. Instead of using the traditional concept of sending files as attachments, it has reversed the whole concept by sending files and allowing the users to attach comment, post links and other files along with the main file. In addition there are features of instant messaging and integration with other services and applications.

It provides you the option to invite contacts who are not on the skarpline. “Instead of the email with an attached file, Skarpline puts the file in front and attaches all communications, chats, integration and other files to it” said Dan Storbaek, founder and CEO of Skarpline.

Pros and Cons of Skarpline

Pros

  • Easy to share files on a go.
  • Structuring of files can be done in any way.
  • Focus mode helps increase productivity avoiding disturbing notifications
  • User friendly.

Cons

  • The profile image once added cannot be removed. It can only be changed.
  • If an image is clicked, the image appears blurred. To make it clearly visible, you need to zoom in once and zoom out.
  • The premium version supports only up to the team size of 100. If the team size exceeds the limit, the user needs to contact the team for further details.

Differentiator

Skarpline eases and modifies the way work communication is done, by allowing users to communicate over files and easy drag drop sharing. This new concept is expected to bring change in work communication in the following years.
