The Work Platform
The Network homepage is the centre of all your activity. The main functions, web conferencing, project management and the text editor are just one click away, your internal mailbox and Status display can be checked and updated from here as well. The HotC Video IM is always available and shows at a glance who in your network is currently online. Connect, share, create, edit, inform, there’s no limit to the possibilities using your private internal network. Discover that much needed professional by accessing the external HotC network through the forums or by using our comprehensive search function. If you have a company/business Group on Head of the Curve you can invite any to join and this becomes a platform for the company with videos, photos and discussion forums. It can be ideas sharing and brainstorming or simply used as for company promotion.
Communication is the most powerful asset to any business, Head of the Curve provides multiple options for communication. At its simplest level the internal messaging options allow for messages to be sent between all in your network with unread mail always showing on the Mailbox on your Network homepage. Whenever a message is sent an email notification is sent to the email address you registered with. The HotC Video IM provides an IM option to Network contacts who are online, a video call can be requested if the contact is offline, included among the options are translation and page sharing . The project manager has its own dedicated messaging and comment making features. 'HeadtoHeadMeeting' web conferencing gives the most complete communication solution you are ever likely to need, in fact it is a collaboration function in itself, video, audio, IM and Record and Playback.

The platform needn’t be just for your work colleagues and clients on the Project Manager, customers can benefit enormously by being part of your network. Relationships with customers can be developed by the personal approach of using your own social network boosted by the use of web conferencing, file and screen sharing. By setting up a company/business Group on the site customers can view your products, services and any new releases or promotions you may be having. Strong customer relations have never been easier to achieve or maintain..
Sharing is a core strength of the collaborative capabilities on Head of the Curve.

To collaborate is to share, and we make it available throughout all the features on Head of the Curve.
Privacy & Security
Our servers are all European based and provide the highest levels of security and we have the added benefit of securing our site with an SSL certification with 256 bit encryption. Data stored with us can find no better security, coupled with our multiple back-ups, data loss can be a thing of the past. When setting up your Network you can determine the level of privacy you require. If you set yourself as open to everyone on the Head of the Curve community then you can be contacted by anyone who may require yours or your company’s services. The settings then take you through five levels of separation to ‘Contacts Only’, at this level you will build a completely private network. At a ‘Contacts only’ setting the only contact that can be made with you is by your contacts or those you invite to collaborate with you on 'HeadStart', 'HeadStart', project manager, 'Emendo' or to join you in a meeting on 'HeadtoHeadMeeting'.
