HELIOS WebShare UB2 improves remote teamwork

Gallery mode previews of images, multi-page PDFs and Office documents, and automatic remote synchronization of project files, are highlights of the HELIOS WebShare UB2 remote file access solution.

Hannover, Germany, February 1, 2012 – The new HELIOS WebShare UB2 software is a perfect match for web-based team collaboration – be it local or international. WebShare provides remote access to server files via any web browser from any Mac, Windows, Linux, or mobile device, and now includes multi-page previews of PDF and Office documents in gallery and list modes. HELIOS WebShare UB2 makes it easy to add secure remote file access to any file server.
Automatic two-way remote synchronization of files and folders is another important feature of the new HELIOS WeShare UB2. Utilizing the “WebShare Manager” component, Mac, Windows, and UNIX/Linux users can drag & drop project files from the web browser or the local workstation into the “WebShare Manager” window to enable synchronization of files between the remote WebShare server and the local workstation.
The full remote workflow support includes customizable synchronization plans, support for files larger than 4 GB, project folder setup, and file versioning. The project oriented approach allows using files scattered in various locations on a file server within a remote collaboration without the need to move or collect those files into a single folder. HELIOS WebShare UB2 WebShare Manager reduces the efforts for remote teamwork to a few mouse clicks.
Further benefits of HELIOS WebShare UB2 and WebShare Manager include:
  • Apple Spotlight compatible search system allows quickly finding files based upon name, text content, and meta data
  • Drag & drop upload/download of local and server files using WebShare Manager
  • Automatic resumption of interrupted uploads/downloads ensures high file synchronization reliability
  • User interface localized for English, German, French, Japanese, and Spanish
