PosterBee was created in June of 2010 by Kalle Volkov and Allan Martinson. The team consists of around five individuals, including marketer Andrus Purde with Volkov holding the position of CTO. PosterBee was created to give users a smarter way to share resources and information among an entire group or team of individuals. The features currently available through PosterBee make it a preferred choice for many users.
PosterBee.com was shut down in 2012.
Sharing links, photos, videos and more online is not a new concept. However PosterBee has improved the task by making it possible for teams of individuals to share information and resources very quickly and easily. PosterBee has made the task as easy as it can possibly be, with drag and drop capabilities and single click sharing. The items shared are stored in a data base and can be referenced later, adding another layer of functionality for PosterBee users.
The Posterbee website includes a sleek, modern design that looks very professional with a touch of personality. The orange and black logo compliments the organized menus and uniquely shaped graphics posted on the site. The application is designed to simplify sharing and storing of information, and it does this well. Users can drag and drop items to share them and view at a glance information on specific entries in user’s posting history.
Visitors who click the orange “Sign up” link at the top, right hand corner of the homepage may be a little confused. An image pops up indicating that the user can fill out a form and sign up the traditional way or choose to register through their Facebook account. No links, buttons or forms appear to actually sign up for PosterBee. Clicking the orange “See Plans” link (also at the top of the page), will take the user to the available plans with a green “Sign up” button under each. Clicking this button takes the user to the form to enter their email address or click a blue button to register through Facebook. Users who sign up through email will have to check their inbox for a confirmation message to complete registration.
PosterBee currently only offers one membership type: the Basic plan. This plan is free for all users and includes 100 MBs of storage space and up to 12 group members. Two paid membership plans are going to be available in the near future. The Business plan will cost around $5 per month and include 500 MBs of storage space, up to 100 group members, moderator features, data encryption, and no advertisements. The Premier plan will include up to 50 GBs of storage space and unlimited group members. This plan will cost around $15 per month.
PosterBee is a great tool for businesses and organizations that share a lot of information and resources among a team. The application is intended to make sharing easier and recording shared items simple.
