If one thing matters to most traveling workers, it's the ability to access important documents at any time and from any location. There are plenty of options, such as Drop Box and Google Drive, available for this purpose -- but Teambox aims to be the box to rule all boxes.

Teambox differentiates itself from other storage lockers in that it's not just about storage. The open source, Web-based tool's central dashboard, for example, presents collaborators' updates in a cascading display that resembles a Twitter stream or Facebook newsfeed. Within this interface, you can make comments and share files, and a separate Task Management page offers additional ways to keep track of ongoing group projects.

Integration with services such as Box, DropBox, Salesforce and Google Apps help further Teambox's goal of being the central hub for various cloud activities.

The free version supports up to five users and offers 5 GB of storage. A paid Pro version removes the user and storage caps; it offers pricing models that scale with user needs, with monthly fees running from $25 per month for five users to $275 per month for 100 users. Both the free and Pro options boast secure cloud storage in PCI-compliant data centers, allowing Teambox to boast 99.9% up time. An enterprise-oriented service that offers custom plans for on-site hosting is also available.
