Recognise these digital workspace pain points?

Losing control of your content

Every time you download a file from the web client of Nextcloud, you download that file to your local device. Meaning that it is not in the secure environment of your Nextcloud server anymore.

Result: you lose control of your data. An unwanted situation, especially when it concerns company vital and privacy sensitive information.

Working with wrong versions

How often have you downloaded a file, worked with it and then forgot to upload it back to the server.

Result: the latest version is not on the server, so everyone is working with the wrong version. Making decisions based on wrong or non-complete information can have a serious impact on your business.

Increased risk of data leakage

Files downloaded on your local device can be lost or viewed by persons who are not authorised to view them.

These files are not encrypted and can be easily transferred to others. Control on those files are completely lost.

File synchronization slows down devices

Ever experienced that unexpected your SSD-hard disk of your laptop runs full? Most likely someone uploaded a load of content on the server that 'thanks' to file synchronization were synced on your laptop.

Result: a slow, unresponsive laptop.

What MERQXS does for you

Your settings in one clear configuration overview

The configuration overview shows you how much storage you have used and if your MERQXS is connected.
By clicking on the Update you can update your MERQXS to the latest version.

With Snapview you get to see the big picture.

MERQXS shows you the thumbnails of your images, giving you an instant visual view of your photos.
With Snapview you see a large version of the thumbnail of your image. Browse through your images with ease. This will help you find and select your images.

Open & save your Office 2013/2016 files directly to your Nextcloud

Create and open an Office file in MERQXS and your Word, Excel or PowerPoint will start. You can start editing that file on your computer. Once saved, it will be uploaded directly to your Nextcloud private cloud. Multiple saves create multiple versions in Nextcloud.
Losing the internet connection will not lose your unsaved work. It will be cached on your computer. Close the Office application and the file will be deleted from your cache automatically.

Offline access with Offline Folders

By default all your content in MERQXS is stored securely on your Nextcloud server and never leaves it. But sometimes you need offline access.
You make specific folders available offline with Offline Folders. The files in that folder (not the subfolders!) will be synchronised locally. But these files will be stored encrypted and when they are ‘cleared offline’ they will be deleted.

Protect your 'travelling' content with passwords and time limits

Sometimes you need to share files with external parties that do not have an account on your Nextcloud server. Those files become ‘travelling’ content as they will travel outside the secure area of your Nextcloud.
Protect these travellers with shared links with passwords and time limits. Send passwords via text messages to the receiver and reduce considerably the risk your content might face, should your e-mails be hacked.
