You may have a mobile work force, such as employees in sales who need to visit customers. The marketing department is creating sales collaterals and marketing materials back in the office and save them to an on-premise file server. The sales team is out there in the field, showing the white paper, solution brief, and data sheets to customers and collecting customer requirements that need to be saved back to the central file server. Your sales team and your marketing team need a file sharing solution centered on your on-premise file server and, at the same time, cover the usage pattern from all over the Internet.
CentreStack makes it simple to share files and folders internally with team members and external partners, clients and vendors, or mobile workers outside of company premises.
You can share files by uploading to online cloud storage first and then share it out. You can also share the files directly from your file server over the Internet, without waiting for the upload process to finish.
Employees will continue to use the familiar cloud drive mapping and file locking interface, in addition to using web browsers and mobile applications to access internal file servers.
In general, you have built your company infrastructure around Microsoft Active Directory and Windows file server network shares. You would like to extend the ability to share files from file server within the LAN (Local Area Network) to file sharing over the Internet to laptops and mobile devices.

Mobile workers usually take documents on laptops, collect requirements on-site with the customer, and save to notebooks. When they return to the office, they will sync up with the file server, either download new materials or save requirements back to the file server. It is a manual process, and if employees forgot to upload files, vital customer feedback could get lost, and so does the most up-to-date information.
Team members may also use email to pass documents around. Over time, these documents scatter around in the email system but not coming back to the file server, the central repository. Over time, these files will get lost and buried deep in the email inboxes.
Some online storage solutions also allow you to upload files to online storage for sharing purposes. However, the office worker may already be familiar with saving documents to a file server. Employees need to be re-trained to use a different solution. You prefer the sharing solution to leverage your file server, not a new online storage repository.
