FileDrop allows you to drop files directly to an ISEBOX account. This eliminates the need to use third-party file transfer programs, such as FTP, WeTransfer, Google Drive, YouSendIt, Hightail, MediaFire and other similar services. Files uploaded through FileDrop can be used immediately on Project and Content Pages or downloaded at a later time.
Popular Use-case: Company JohnDoe Ltd. hired a team of photographers for a big promotional event they are hosting. The goal for this event is to get as many bloggers, influencers and journalists to be talking about their new Product. Each photographer takes a unique set of photos and videos and uploads those via ISEBOX FilesDrop. A designated ISEBOX User for JohnDoe Ltd. currates the photos in real-time, and makes them available on a Content Page specifically set up for the event. Ideally the Event Content page has been already shared to the Distribution list. Bloggers, influencers and Jounalists are able to access high-quality content and spread it through the web while the event is still going on.
