PowerFolder launches survey

What features do the customers miss? What can be improved? Because even with the best product there is still room for improvement, dal33t GmbH has started a survey on their File Sync & Share solution PowerFolder. Among the participants will be giving away 5x a terabyte of cloud storage for one year.

Düsseldorf, 09.03.2018 ‑ In order to be able to better consider the wishes and suggestions of its users in the further development of the File Sync & Share solution PowerFolder, Düsseldorf-based dal33t GmbH has launched several small surveys on its website. On topics such as “Mobile Apps”, “Collaboration”, “Usability”, “Security” and “Administration”, users can use short multiple-choice questionnaires to choose which new features they would like to see in PowerFolder in the future. The answer takes only a few minutes; a terabyte of cloud storage with a one-year term will be raffled off five times among the participants. Dal33t-CEO Christian Sprajc: „The survey is designed to help us synchronize PowerFolder development priorities with what our users want and to better tailor our product to the multiple practice needs of our customers.“

The survey, which runs until the end of March, can be found at the following link: Participants in
