Ten years ago, Jon Burns gazed over a European soccer stadium full of fans and saw great potential. Soon after, he created Lionsraw, a UK-based charity that empowers soccer fans to donate time and money to community efforts. Today, Jon is doing a lot of good for a lot of people the world over. Recently, though, Lionsraw, was up against a file-sharing and collaboration problem. “We have staff all over the world and lots of volunteers,” says Lionsraw Founder and CEO Jon Burns. “So the problem we had was, how do you communicate well — how do you share information well — when you’re all over the place?”
Spread across five continents, Lionsraw employees and volunteers had no centralized way to store and share documents. Confidential data was comingled with non-sensitive information, and a lot of their files were big, bulky videos and photos they wanted to edit and share from around the world. They also wanted mobile access to everything, from everywhere.
