OneHub is a functional online workspace that is designed to suit many needs and industries. Users can collaborate effectively regardless of how far apart they may be. The application can streamline team tasks and reduce the amount of time needed to wait for response or ask questions. OneHub also allows users to create client and partner portals to open up communication while also improving the functionality of a virtual team. By having an easy to use online resource, users can better serve clients, converse with partners, and get things done with a team.
OneHub was created in October of 2007. Today, the site is based out of Bellevue, Washington. The team includes founder and CEO Charles Mount, VP of Engineering Brian Moran, and Director of Marketing Laurel Moudy. OneHub currently offers a long list of helpful features that allow users to not only collaborate, but reach out to clients and business partners in a way that is fast, easy and effective.
Collaborating with a team, or anyone else, can be a challenge. Asking questions and getting answers can take time, especially if the team must wait for phone calls or even email responses. OneHub allows users to centralize all of this activity while streamlining the process. Users can dramatically improve the functionality of their virtual team while also providing a better way to talk to clients and business partners. Although the site doesn’t offer a purely unique service, it is well designed and covers more ground than some similar internet applications do.
OneHub is all business with a little character. The website features a low key green and black color scheme. It is far from plain, but does not contain any busy graphics or annoying advertisements that can take away from the user’s experience. The actual tools are just as well organized, with helpful charts, graphs and lists as well as calendars. Anyone can quickly adapt to using OneHub to collaborate with a team or client.
A new visitor can become a OneHub member by clicking on the grey ‘Sign Up for Free” button at the top right hand corner of the homepage. The site boasts a 60 second registration process, which is a nice bonus for the user. The registration form is kept short and sweet, asking for a username and password. A first and last name and phone number can be entered, but are optional. Users can also sign up using their existing Google or Google Apps account. After submitting the information, the user is asked to choose from a number of color schemes for their first workspace. Although this seems like fluff, it’s a nice bonus to add a little personality to a workspace while making it easy to identify.
Users can register and try out OneHub for free. There are three paid account membership options to choose from when upgrading. The Personal membership is intended for individuals and runs about $30 per month. This account allows the user to add their branding, manage up to 3 workspaces and 3 GBs of storage space. The Team account runs about $100 a month and upgrades to include additional customizable features and advanced permissions, up to 25 workspaces, and 25 GBs of storage. The most expensive account is the Enterprise which runs about $500 a month and includes white labeling, a custom domain, up to 500 workspaces, and up to 500 GBs of storage.
Business owners and freelancers with a project to collaborate on can appreciate OneHub. The freelance or solo account is relatively affordable, but the price goes up quite a bit for businesses. OneHub may be a bit pricy for a start up or small business it has a lot to offer to businesses that can afford the service.
