External collaboration for your business-critical documents & files

Effective collaboration on documents and files with your clients, partners—or any party—needs to be structured, secure, and transparent for everyone.

Despite its shortcomings, many still rely on email for collaboration, leading to chaotic threads and scattered attachments. This doesn't just affect you—it strains your relationships and disrupts workflows.We developed TakeTurns to bring order to the chaos.

TakeTurns is a turn-based collaboration app where two parties take turns to share, request or update files and documents. With TakeTurns, everyone knows whose turn it is to work, gets a full history of the collaboration, and keeps everything secure and confidential.

But more importantly, it integrates seamlessly with everyone’s workflow and favorite applications.  Using TakeTurns, you’ll spend less time managing your inbox and more time doing meaningful work. Our hope is that TakeTurns restores that bit of sanity that’s been missing at work.
