Hornbill is a powerful cloud based collaboration tool designed to share ideas and information. In order to make our tool as flexible as possible, we integrate with other cloud based services in order to make sharing or content, including rich media easy, seamless and transparent. Generally speaking, integration in this context means being able to understand, embed and communicate with other popular cloud services. The following is a list of the services we have pre-integrated with and simply work our of the box.
