In the previous article in the Discovering Deskfirst Series we discussed how Deskfirst could be utilized by PR agencies to improve collaboration and file-sharing – the familiar desktop environment on the web makes the entire process of collaboration seamless and reduces friction to virtually zero!
Today we’ll be looking at another use case, this time for a music & video creator – let’s call her Angela Smith.
Angela collaborates with various clients including musicians, artists, and video producers from diverse genres and backgrounds, and she provides services like music & video production and editing.
But when it comes to collaboration and file-sharing, what are the specific needs of Angela?
Effortless Client Collaboration – Angela requires a platform that streamlines the management of clients’ assets; the platform has to give her the power and flexibility to organize files however she wants to and have control over the workspaces she shares with clients and external partners, all while maintaining ease of use and reducing technical friction. With Deskfirst, Angela can effortlessly collaborate and share files with her clients and external partners without encountering technical friction; Deskfirst’s desktop environment allows uploading files by dragging and dropping, opening multiple folder windows, and moving files between folders with the built-in file explorer — all with ease, and without leaving out those who are less tech-savvy.
Dynamic and Customizable Branding Options – Angela doesn’t only require a functional platform, she also understand the vast importance of how she’s perceived by her clients. Because of that, Angela requires a platform that will allow her to customize the workspaces she shares with her clients in a way that represents both her brand and the client’s brand. Deskfirst addresses specifically these requirements – it allows customizing the branding of every web desktop (i.e. workspace). This includes the ability to customize the background and logo of every web desktop to reflect both sides’ brand identities.
Client Assets Isolation and Simplified Access Permissions – managing assets and access permissions for an infinite list of clients that constantly gets updated is an extremely complex task. Angela requires a platform that will allow her to easily create completely separate workspaces that never overlap – both in terms of assets and access permissions – and also a platform that works according to high security standards; Angela simply can’t afford to upload files to the wrong workspace accidentally, give someone access to sensitive information they shouldn’t see, or risk a leak of a client’s assets. Deskfirst checks all these boxes. With Deskfirst, it’s possible to create an individual web desktop (i.e. workspace) for every client and use case separately, and manage access permissions with granular roles at the web desktop level instead of the file or folder level. All these features simplify the management of files and assets while minimizing the risk of costly mistakes.
In conclusion, Deskfirst's user-friendly interface, customizable branding options, and secure client and project isolation features make it the ideal solution for music & video creators and other businesses requiring collaboration and file-sharing.
