Cloud technology is no longer synonymous with storage, but seems to be encompassing a greater role, one that also includes online document management. Whether you simply wish to make a backup of your files or access them while on the go, cloud services such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or SkyDrive offer great flexibility in document management. Among the many document related tasks that users perform online, sharing files in different file formats is one task that is quite tiresome. Finding the right online conversion tools, uploading and downloading them and then transferring them to the recipients involves time and in today’s fast paced world, where multi tasking is the norm, this lengthy process needs to be avoided.
That’s where Cometdocs comes in. You might remember Cometdocs for its popular free online conversion services. Well, Cometdocs has now grown bigger and stronger and expanded its services to include document management services as well. One look at its Clipboard style interface or document manager, you know everything that Cometdocs can do for you. Its clean interface with tabbed options means that you don’t need to search for help or read up tutorials to get started. Let’s peek into Cometdocs and see what it offers.
Document Management Services at Free and Premium Prices
Cometdocs offers great value for those looking for free as well as premium document management services. Sign up for a free account and you get an online storage space of 1 GB, a file size limit of MB, 15 document conversions per week, and option to transfer files via a public or hosted link for up to 3 days.

Let’s take a look at some of the top features of Cometdocs:
Drag &Drop: One of the most convenient methods of upload, Drag & Drop is available right away on Cometdocs and you can pretty much do all your document-related activities with the feature.

Cometdocs features some of the most essential elements needed for a good document management system: multiple functionality, ease of use, optimum pricing and a few free services thrown in as well. The feature that I truly miss about Cometdocs is an app that will enable me to do what I can do on the PC on my Android and iPhone devices.
