Manage shares

Shares allow you to share folders with other users registered in the system and access shared documents. You can easily give a user access to a document and optionally choose the restriction "read only".

The shared folders are shown with a special icon in the file manager view, so you know immediately which folders are shared.

Shares work as usual via SFTP and FTPS, they do not differ from other folders in the file system.

Contact administration

With the contact administration you have your address-book under control. Save frequently used recipients of CargoLinks with a preconfigured PIN and use the contacts from the file manager simply by drag&drop to create CargoLinks efficiently.

  • Manage contacts
  • Import contacts from outlook
  • Manage contact groups
  • Tag contacts as favorites
  • Share contacts with other users

CargoUpload Receiving data with CargoLink

Allows the recipient of a CargoLink to upload own files in order to facilitate an exchange in both directions. This option can simply be activated by ticking a box and enables the recipient to upload files directly using his browser - it couldn't be easier!

Uploaded files appear directly in your file manager and are specially marked. Every tranfer is being protocolled and is shown in the detailed view of the CargoLink.

Folder actions

With folder actions we introduce automation to the CargoServer: Any folder can be monitored and trigger a predefined action when a new file is uploaded.

Other users can be automatically notified of a change in a shared folder or the lifespan of a CargoLink could be prolonged and immediately send the recipients a new PIN, so they can keep accessing all the documents.

We would love to show you, how an easy and secure link of mobile equipment and gadgetry can be achieved with this option.

API (Application Programming Interface)

With the REST-API via HTTPS CargoServer offers a programming interface for the integration into your internal business applications, so all functions for creating and modifying CargoLinks in the single or batch mode as well as contact administration are completely available to you.

Create and transfer personalised documents directly from your business application and use the available interface for automated distribution of portfolios. Query the status of each transfer to get the most recent information about the delivery.

Thanks to complying with REST-semantics and using HTTPS, the API can be used with almost every programming or scripting language (examples in Ruby and Python are available). For the authentification an access-token and a HMAC-algorithm with a verification of the time stamp are being used, in order to maximise the protection against abuse. In addition the access to the API can be restricted using the built-in firewall.

E-Mail Integration automatically create CargoLinks for attachments

Cargo solves the problem of large and confidential attachments the smart way: Outgoing messages are processed automatically and attachments provided to the recipients using CargoLinks. File transfer via email has never been easier and no technical issues will frustrate your users when sending large archives.

Built-in content scanners (malware protection), audit logs of every access and enhanced protection via PIN provides additional security for your data on the move.

Swiss Made Software

We believe in the quality of the Swiss activity area and the potential of the local economy. The Cargo platform is being entirely developed in Zurich, Switzerland and is therefore largely contributing to the development of software and engineering competences in Switzerland.

We are proud of our education at Swiss universities and colleges of polytechonology - despite globalisation and high international competition we value closeness to our clients and education institutions in Switzerland very highly.
