Shelf integrates Google Drive, Dropbox to sync content curation across platforms

Shelf integrates Google Drive, Dropbox to sync content curation across platforms

By integrating with existing storage tools such as Google Drive and Dropbox, Shelf beta launches its next generation content curation platform.

The platform’s ability to seamlessly integrate with Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive means that content syncing across platforms occurs almost instantly, making Shelf the go-to destination for content curation.

“The way we manage our content in the digital age is broken. Our content is scattered all over the place and disconnected. Stuff is in emails, Google Drive, Dropbox, Facebook, Slack Evernote, and more,” said Shelf co-founder and CEO Sedarius Tekara Perrotta. “The average organization uses over 20 different platforms to manage their content and the problem is only getting worse.”

Studies show that the average information worker spends 494 hours per year searching for information, at a cost of over $14,000 per employee/year. Organizations that significantly improve employee access to content will not only see a spike in productivity, but a positive impact on the bottom line too–and this is where Shelf comes into play.

Shelf was designed to transform the proverbial “fire hose of information” into a single source of digestible, accessible content. The intuitive interface means that users can find content that would have previously been scattered and disorganized in fewer than 3 clicks.

Users can easily group their organization’s most valuable digital assets—including documents, contacts, notes, images, as well as web content like YouTube videos, podcasts, webpages, LinkedIn profiles, and articles.

According to Shelf co-founder and CTO Tobias Jaeckel, “It’s not just about productivity. It’s about the opportunity cost of not knowing that certain information already exists and the valuable time and energy that gets wasted re-creating that information from scratch.”

Pam Ostrowski from 1nService claims, “Shelf has given us the ability to effortlessly curate content regardless of its format or location. Whether it’s stored on places like Google Drive or Dropbox, on our file server, or on the internet as a podcast, we know that Shelf will allow anyone in our network to locate it quickly… now and at any point in the future.”
