Have you ever wanted an online whiteboard that lets you share it with anyone in any part of the world? Wouldn’t it be a great way to collaborate with your team without sharing and re-sharing files and end up confused about the latest versions?
Business owners, employees, designers, and freelancers need a place to jot down their ideas and work on them. Think of it as a mood board that writers create to plan their novels, but with even more features and options.

The software can be accessed through the web browser, Windows 10, Android, iOS, and interactive displays.
You can either host the software on the cloud or in the in-house servers. The software is suitable for companies, schools, and non-profit organizations.
