So what is the dropspace network?
With dropspace, government, business & education get their own custom-branded, cloud-based community that provides insightful enterprise and user tools to drive and measure engagement and development – platforms that require zero installation and zero maintenance. Each end-user gets their own profile and can log into any open community with a single login – their information and content travels with them. They can share publically, privately, to their network, to teams or within the specific community that they are part of.
Currently over 1.2 million cross-network users
What do our clients say?
We use dropspace to help with communication and ideas. We’ve setup different groups, employees can upload a document, and team members can like and comment – it’s a great way to get feedback. It’s a bit like Facebook, just without the annoying cat and food photos!Samantha A
dropspace is great! We’ve use it as our learning management system and onboarding tool. We can standardize all of our job roles, assign competencies and work skills and I know that all of our staff have met specific levels or are working towards them.Thomas B
