So what are some real-world use cases for Deskfirst?
In the upcoming Discovering Deskfirst series, we are going to answer that question by diving into specific use cases that are based on real Deskfirst users and businesses that have shared with us how they use the platform, and how it changed their businesses by making their work easier, faster, and more organized.
One business that uses Deskfirst is a creative studio. Let’s call them Minty.
Some clients need branding, others need web design, and others need constant marketing materials delivered on regular basis.
In total, they have 50 clients that need to be managed simultaneously, this means constant collaboration on deliverables, hundreds of assets that are being created daily, and receiving plenty of materials from their clients.
So what specifically does Minty is looking for?
Ease of Use with Clients - Minty’s constant flow of data from and to their clients requires them to be able to be super organized, otherwise it becomes a mess. And, some of their clients are not so tech-savvy, so the platform has to be intuitive from the first minute. With Deskfirst's intuitive online desktop interface, it’s easier than ever before to organize files in different folders, and find files inside them! And the best part of the desktop environment is that there’s virtually no learning curve. Doesn’t matter how tech-savvy they are, as the desktop interface is familiar to anyone. Deskfirst is intuitive and easy to master – for every person, from any walk of life. This means the team at Minty can enjoy from efficient and frictionless work with their clients.
Branding and Client Engagement - every client of Minty is in a unique industry and wants to feel that he’s recognized for that. With Deskfirst they can customize the appearance of their web desktops by choosing a related background, add a logo, and more. Customizing every desktop for the client is extremely important for customer satisfaction, and keeping Minty’s name in front of their clients is a powerful way to increase brand engagement.
Easy Management and Separation of Projects - Having 50 clients to collaborate with can rapidly become a hard task to manage. In Deskfirst Minty creates a web desktop for each client, each web desktop is hermetically separated from the others, easy to manage and monitor. Unlike other file-sharing and collaboration platforms, where sharing is on the folder-level, each with its unique permissions, something that rapidly creates messy file explorers and permissions chaos, sharing web desktops in Deskfirst settle this problems. The ability to control permissions easily and the hermetic separation between web desktops saves Minty and its clients plenty of time, frustration, and mistakes!
