Software firm Refractiv, based in Leeds UK, is set to expand following a successful launch of its own product OverDRIVE, which has attracted global interest. Turnover is expected to more than double over the next 12 months.
OverDRIVE customers include leading UK property company Bruntwood, specialist retirement housing developer PegasusLife and Aerofoam Industries, a manufacturer of aircraft seating parts based in California. The product is now available for purchase online and through a growing number of partners worldwide.
1,200 organisations with a combined total of more than 150,000 people from Europe and the US and as far afield as New Zealand, Australia, Brazil, Cambodia and Canada have been using and trialling OverDRIVE. Over 140 organisations in both business and education are signing up for a trial every week.
OverDRIVE is designed for organisations in business and education which use Google’s enterprise product G Suite (formerly Google Apps).
OverDRIVE allows you to make great-looking and powerful workspaces and sites, transforming existing Google files and folders into web pages automatically. Specialist skills are not needed and you can set up a site in minutes. Uses include project workspaces, sites, intranets, digital libraries, event sites and education resources.
US customer Aerofoam Industries uses OverDRIVE for a company intranet: “Having a project workspace powered by OverDRIVE is great for us – as an aerospace company the quantity of drawings and documents is huge. An intranet which mirrors our Google Drive structure not only brings our files to life, but means we can keep track, organise, share and distribute to our employees.” Matthew Nichols, Sales Director.
Ian Weatherhogg, Technical Director at Refractiv said: “From plenty of first hand experience I know that it takes time, money and tech-savvy people to build and maintain site content. With that content being stored in new ways in the Cloud, we knew there had to be be a better way – faster and at lower cost. OverDRIVE transforms Google Drive and other data into web pages effortlessly and content synchronises automatically too, so it’s easy to setup and maintain a site.”
