Skarpline is a communication tool or 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.
