My daughter is doing an online course for school. She had to submit her assignment by email.
Problem: she had to email 2 large files - both were over 10 MB (megabytes).
For you non-techies, a MB is big, 10 MB is very big.
Try sending emails with attachments that are 5 MB or higher, and you usually run into problems - your recipient doesn't get your email, or get's the email body, but without the attachment.
So I suggested she use the file sharing system in BuildIT. She did, and it was a piece of cake.
1) She launched a free test drive, then 2) uploaded the files to BuildIT, then 3) sent her teacher a "sharing link" to the files.
The cool thing is, she can even see now IF and WHEN her teacher downloads the file to view the assignment.
(Sometimes, a little BIG BROTHER can work in your favor - like seeing if one of your subcontractors or vendors has viewed the contract drawings you sent them in order for them to provide a price.)
I was amazed at how easy it was for her, not only to create the test drive, but to do the steps to upload the large files, then send the sharing links. Within minutes, the task was done... and I wondered if I should hire her to do customer support for BuildIT full time !!
So if you have any hesitation about launching a BuildIT test drive, and you don't have a teenager handy, give me a call, and I'll walk you through the setup. I'll even help you get your contact details and logo uploaded, and your first job and schedule polished off. You'll have lots of time to "play with the system" later, but for now, let's both get the job done, so you can be on your way.
C'mon, if a 13 year old can do it, you certainly can too !
