Why Octiv & Samba

The Octiv integration with Samba (SMB), a file sharing network protocol, gives Octiv users the power to easily share, access and manage files within the Octiv platform. Octiv allows you to easily create a professionally branded document, redline it, share it and send it for eSignature.
