Comments: I have a long history with Citrix. I beta tested the GoToAssist line of products. So they asked me to beta test the ShareFile product. In the beginning it was crap. I tried to upload my files (about 1 TB) and it croaked after 5 GB. I called support and they referred me to a company that was writing a migration tool. I beta tested that too. they asked for my honest opinion and I gave it to them. I told them Citrix should just fix their software and I shouldn't have to buy an extra tool to get my data into the cloud. Fast forward 2 years later, my Accountant tells me we are bleeding money paying for something we're not using (ShareFile) he said use it or dump it. So I download it again, started using it, uploaded my 1TB+ of data into it and was impressed. They have come a LONG way. I can even modify word documents and PDF's within the ShareFile client. Now they have an iOS app and droid app. I see improvements on a regular basis, like now they have a "save to sharefile" option on the iOS. This is Citrix after all they make good stuff. I am glad I stuck with them so long because now I have a grandfathered account type. It's coming along really well and I'm really happy I stuck with them. they used to support WebDav for windows integration, now they have a "Mapped drive app"

Pros: iOS save to sharefile Easy to use interface progress bar when uploading files MODIFY DOCUMENTS in sharefile share a file/folder for a # of downloads share a file/folder for a # of days download notifications no sharefile account? no problem you can still see my files Ha Ha I FORCE you to create an account, to see me files because I can! (or because my regulations state I have to require individual accounts.)

Cons: Relatively speaking they are coming late to the market, Box and Dropbox have been out a long time. I'm trying to think of some con's but the truth is I know they are improving the software as I type. Oh I though of one. In Microsoft word they don't have "save to sharefile" option like dropbox does, but they do have the "Drive mapper app" so you can save it to Z: or whatever. They don't synchronize with my NAS, it's deliberate. I'm a network engineer I tried all the tricks and workarounds, yes even symbolic links and hard links. They don't work. You're not supposed to do it. They're not trying to be a backup for your NAS.

Recommendations to other buyers: Though sharefile is not as old as dropbox, they are enterprise ready. Specifically designed for business. I've looked at Anchor (acquired by eFolder), Box, dropbox, OwnCloud, QNAP sync. I use ShareFile.

Pros: ShareFile is easy to use. The Outlook plug-in allows an easy way for customers to send secure files as well as secure emails with a few short clicks. Users are able to create their own folders and we share folders with our clients. There are templates for subfolders as well as retention periods for files. We are able to send attachments beyond Outlook's size limitations and ShareFile helps scan for potentially dangerous content. You can also control what network users access their ShareFile account. There are a lot of options available if you're looking to protect information that leaves your company.

Cons: There can be issues with downloading a lot of files at once from the browser. However; Citrix makes a ShareFile desktop app this helps speed up this process. You can turn two factor on, but you have to have each user go to their account and manually enable it. That makes us work with each user in order to enable two factor. The cost can be expensive, but we had reduced rate. Its well worth looking around for a good deal if you decide to implement ShareFile. A small downside is when a user goes to preview a password protected document, they have to download the file because ShareFile's website cannot prompt you for the password.

Pros: The web interface was easy to pick up on. We migrated to Sharefile from another large file sharing site that was falling short in what we needed for our multiple plants. Sharefile gave a central space to the large amount of video files we use for inspections and documentation of various equipment that we own and lease. Having a central space to record and track all inspections was fundamental to our business needs. What impressed me most about Sharefile was the cleanliness of the website and the ease of use that it exemplifies. It took less than an hour to get all our workers on board with the how to use the site and catalog our files.

Cons: The only real down side is with the gross amount of folders we have, you have to wait for the page to populate when you reach the end of the first set. Enabling a manual shortcut (like typing in a folder name to take you to that folder) would be a great benefit.

Overall: It cut down the time it took our workers to properly catalogue and upload video records. It also was easier to track down mis-labled records and put them where they needed to be. Having switched all our plants over to Sharefile, we are better able to view and respond to issues promptly. It's ease of use has left us with fewer errors in our documentation.

Pros: One of our most-used features of ShareFile is setting up our clients with individual folders to allow them to upload and store their advertising creative. This is similar to FTP, but ShareFile allows us to receive notifications based on upload, download, etc on a per-folder and per-user basis. We also set it up to notify the client when their ad is downloaded by a member of our team, thereby completely automating the ad delivery process for our publication. The other great feature of ShareFile that we use is desktop app synchronization. This allows ads to be curated by our ad manager and delivered to our production team automatically.

Cons: The web interface can be a bit hit or miss at times, and performance can also vary. The desktop sync apps also are a bit sluggish and would benefit from an improvement in responsiveness.

Overall: Since jumping on board with ShareFile in 2012, the platform has grown along with our organization and has allowed us to reliably request, store and manage client advertising materials for our publication. It has also helped automate our internal and external communication processes regarding advertising material.

Pros: Sharefile at it's most basic a cloud hosted file server instead of hosting one within an office or company. It does allow also the ability to send download links, given the right permissions, for customers to upload or download specific files. Being hosted offsite, it definitely gives an upside for not having to maintain servers or an IT rack within the office.

Cons: If your outside internet connection goes down, then you have no access to your file structure. This happens to if you are a remote person trying to access an office hosted server. The other issue can be bandwidth for uploading/downloading to Sharefile. When we first started using it, it was also very slow and cumbersome, taking several times longer to upload or navigate than a locally hosted server. We also experience at least 1-2 internet downtime events a month, so people cannot access their work for certain periods of time.

Overall: Departments did not want to have files hosted locally due to potential server outages as we did not have a great server setup. This was achieved, but with internet outages it makes it difficult to access those files.

Sharefile is a quick easy way to manage, store, host, receive, request, and transmit documents.

Pros: I don't ever worry about Sharefile glitching. When my coworker experienced trouble syncing, she told me the support team she called stayed on the phone with her and walked her through everything and waited to make sure the issues resolved. It puts my mind at ease, which is very important when talking about all the documentation for everything I do. My business relies on my documentation. It's great knowing it's also cloud-hosted so I don't have to worry about losing access due to any potential hardware malfunctions.

Cons: I don't have much to say in terms of cons related to Sharefile's service and product. It is so straightforward and user friendly. It's intuitive - my boss was shocked when I had downloaded, synced, and set up the whole company Sharefile on my new device before he got the chance to explain what I needed to do. I attribute that to the intuitive, consistent, helpful design.

Overall: This software gives me a peace of mind I couldn't get through many other document repository sites. I suppose the only issue is some of my clients aren't sure how secure transmissions of unencrypted data is via the site.

Pros: - Dropbox Look & Feel

- Multi platform (Desktop apps + Mobile apps for Win / Mac / iOS / Android)

- Advanced sharing option (like expiration date / upload-download notifications)

- Users management (granular privileges can be assigned to any folder or file)

- Versioning feature

Cons: No downsides or weaknesses, so far. Both desktop and mobile apps are pretty stable and servers uptime on clouds is near 100% (no issue observed in the first year of continuos use).

Overall: ShareFile is the business application that tries to replicate that "Dropbox Look and Feel" loved by millions users. Thought for organizations, it offers premium features like Workflow and highest security standards. The desktop app allow to sync local and cloud folders easily, and a plugin for Outlook is available too (it's a share link generator, embedded in the mail client). Main benefits are surely linked with security, because ShareFile can be implemented within the IT infrastructure, and becomes the safe-but-easy-to-use bridge between internal file servers and outside users (customer / providers / consultants / auditors / banks / other stakeholders).

Pros: The feature that I love the most is that I do not have to checkin any document. Its simple drag and drop feature makes it very easy to use. Every time I have a big file to share, Sharefile is always my first preference. Unlike other file sharing tools, Sharefile lets you share a direct link with anyone. The person at the other end does not really have to worry about the whole file structure, the only thing visible is the one particular file that has been shared.

Cons: Though the tool is extremely easy to use, there is no lock feature available. If the environment were to be accessed by multiple users at the same time, there could be version related issues. Though the different versions can be seen easily yet this tool does not seem to have the required amount of sophistication required for a very professional setup.

Pros: Being able to send clients to a personal, branded client folder to access whatever they need (with my customized security settings and email alerts) was amazing.

Also a huge fan of the send me a file link that can be embedded into email signature blocks

Cons: The 2 main shortcomings of the product are what keeps it from being an Enterprise wide solution (though it is nonetheless superb for secure document sharing and signing).

I did not test the Outlook plugin, but the Gmail plugin was not nearly as easy as it was made out to be.

Overall: We began looking for an enterprise solution to file sharing/signing and was hoping to reduce user burden by having the solution serve a host of functions. We were particularly intrigued by the prospect of secure file collaboration but this feature was not as user friendly and compared to Google docs, there was a lot lacking.

While this prevented widespread implementation, several teams nonetheless still rely on sharefile. The continued acquisitions by Citrix also make one wonder how Sharefile will continue to improve/integrate over the next iterations.

Pros: Sharefile has attempted to enable the users share files larger than what their email servers support without doing anything different than the usual. They can still attach a large file using Sharefile plugin and send the mail to the recipient. It also provides an option to upload the file on their server and then share the link to the file with the intended recipients. It facilitates file access from anywhere and any device for the recipient. Files are always secured by encryption while they are stored in their servers as well as during transit. One can be in complete control of their content and change the access permissions anytime from anywhere.

Cons: It doesn't provide a feature to add another layer of protection such as 2 Way Authentication which can make the user feel more secure rather than just rely on Sharefile's security expertise. Also, it doesn't have a software client which can be installed on the machines which hampers the ability for all the contents in a folder to be in sync at all the devices.

Pros: ShareFile has a plethora of tools to help you backup and share documents. The new drive letter access available in Windows Explorer is fast, just like any other drive on your computer. This makes it easy to save and share documents. The google mail sharing extension also allows you to quickly create a link to a document with an expiration date.

Cons: Website features change and there is little communication about what is being updated. On rare occassions, there are problems accessing files due to a database error or a lack of website response that may require help from ShareFile. Lastly, files generally have an automatic expiration date when they should auto-delete in 365 days, but sometimes do not.

Pros: Sharefile is very user-friendly which is extremely helpful for our clients. Sending huge files that contain personal information can be scary, particularly to our clientele,. So, to have something that is easy to use, yet safe, makes a huge difference. Their customer service is outstanding. If you have a question of any kind, they are always available to answer questions and offer solutions as to how to get the most out of this software.

Cons: The biggest issue I have is that not everyone uses it. In the Elder Law arena, many clients and even state and county offices are resistant to change and technology, and would rather just rely on using tons of paper. I'm really hoping that this changes in the near future.

Overall: It's very user-friendly, easy to use and the customer service is outstanding. They are always offering free webinars to help you get the most out of their product,

Pros: I like that ShareFile allows us to keep all important documents safe and secure. It allows you to upload large files even those that emails cannot send. Only the authorized persons can access files and this makes it safe for sharing crucial/sensitive files. It offers file backup since everything is stored in the cloud. You can access file with any devices at any time from anywhere.

Cons: The cost is high and the free trial seems too short. The desktop app seems to work well than when you access it with your PC browser. We have not had any major problems with this tool but poor internet coverage might block you from accessing files.

Overall: Sharefile offers a secure way of storing and sharing files within our organization. You can send even the big files fast and securely. You can also send links to specific file to a colleague and this ensures they download the right file.

Pros: This program is great for small to large businesses alike. ShareFile gives you multiple tools to access your data including a desktop app, sync tool, drive mapper (to emulate a drive that links to your data) and an Outlook add-in that allows you to send and request files. The add-in even lets you set the attachment size so that anything larger will be turned into a storage location within ShareFile so you don't clog peoples' mail boxes with a lot of large attachments.

Cons: Support is not always that fast. If you have a lot of information to transfer you need to be patient as the upload tool for the initial file transfer can take some time.

Cons: Its not free. You cant compare to google drive or MS onedrive, however Sharefile offers better security and tools. Support is part of what you pay for as they provide full support of system.

Overall: Benefits include: Secure file sharing and collaboration tool. Support is great and is inclusive in subscription.

We used ShareFile as our primary file sharing program. I upload, download, and share files daily.

Pros: I love that you can save a version to your desktop and it works just like a regular file folder. It is also nice to be able to access shared files on the internet wherever you are. I also like that you can star your most used folders and only sync content that you use the most, but still access anything you need quickly.

Cons: Sometimes, multiple versions are created if people forget to check out files which is confusing to sort through, and on heavily used files, there have been we have lost modifications.

Overall: I like that our files can be easily shared internally and externally and are mostly organized. I am able to access files from my phone or any computer.

Pros: This is one of the easiest software applications we have employed and is HIPAA-compliant. That is very important for small businesses engaged in the healthcare field and dealing with PHI. Small businesses not using this software are doing themselves a disservice.

Cons: For small businesses, I would prefer that they have a flat fee for companies less than 10 employees. The cost per person is a bit much when we have to have fees for part time people, as well. Outside that, there really is nothing we dislike about ShareFile.

Overall: Ease of use cloud-based data base that is encrypted far above and beyond the requirements of HIPAA. This is a great product.

Pros: This is hands down the best file sharing utility out there. Tons of authentication methods including SAML, Windows Integrated and very simple to use. This tool has variants which are geared towards every industry imaginable such as healthcare, finance, legal, etc. The ability to have things such as stub files suing the drive mapper is an excellent way to deliver files without the use of much storage.

Cons: The price can be a bit steep especially when using cloud based storage. Other than the price, there is really no reason to not use this software, it is excellent in every way.

Pros: I liked that it was affordable, easy to use, and we could do more if we wanted to. The actual log in and navigation was easy to use for the most part after some updates and the customer care used to be okay the few times I needed it.

Cons: They have now hiked up the prices basically telling Small/Medium Businesses to pay up or leave (only about a 30-60 day window to decide do I want to pay more or not). For most small businesses it's an easy choice as alternative affordable pricing is out there all over as I found. I guess they only care about big time companies now that they are "Big Time". Lol, while searching for them I see that they were one of best in 2017... big heads? Seems to be the case. I think this new change will make everything they were doing go down hill fast... good luck shareholders (if they are public).

Overall: Well, after around 10 years of using Sharefile without any issues and only using customer support about 2-3 times we were told that the charges would be basically multiplying by ten times the amount and if we didn't like it, TOO BAD!!!! No negotiation, no warning period (don't consider a 30-60 window after being told you're screwed to quit service or pay a valid warning), no understanding, just "do this or else... don't like it, we don't care.... see ya later scrub." Very unprofessional and in my opinion can and maybe will break your company. With a marketing plan/ploy like that where you corner customers and then on top of that don't care about them in the slightest sense you are heading for disaster.

Pros: -Industry tailored workflows: Sharefile has 10 key industries and the workflow will match that industry. For example: for accounting, the app will display options for clients to sign documents, which cuts out on them having to post or fax documents. -There are great mobile apps that make it very easy to send files - they even have apps for Windows and Blackberry users! -Integrates with Microsoft Office and Gmail which makes it even easier to use.

Cons: No real cons. The mobile apps can be a little on the slow side, but this not a major issue. The interface can be a bit overwhelming as it has lots of options, but you quickly get use to it and the options are all useful.

Comments: Sharefile and now Shareconnect have been part of my toolkit for organisational transformation for 8 years. I've deployed 6 separate instances for widely varying use cases and each has worked well. I would rank Sharefile as important to my deliverables as GoogleWork ( Docs + everything else google does). I work in the more traditional end of the market and find that while Cloud and Hybrid cloud solutions are entering enterprise use now in 2015 most end users need the immediate deployment and quick time to value that Sharefile and Shareconnect offer. Post Sales Support from the Raleigh team does a great job of looking after remote time zones and only the occasional start-up phase hitch appears.

Pros: Prodcut and services are Top Grade 1. Great Scale 2. Easy Deployment 3. Good Support

Cons: A. Complex multi tier Reseller / referral / distributor model handed down from Citrix management ( really, it does suck ) B. Global Storage Zones generate the occasional " ticket - storm" when a problem arises its hard to keep informed on "just" your exposure, a trade off for the transparency. C. Self provisioning is a little too prescriptive. If you self provision the wrong plan then watch out its not an "easy undo". Getting Level 2 help can take longer than you'd imagine.

Pros: Very good product especially with the recent changes in data saving in Europe(GDPR) you can share files using this via email for example and the file is protected when it reaches the recipient as only recipient can open the file, if same email with the file is forwarded to third party it wont be available. You can sign and use it as a toll in MS Outlook

Cons: No issues so far as product provides different options to customize or adjust the functionalities.

Pros: We can scan all information about our customers and create folders for everything we need. ShareFile is great for configuring files that need to be configured the same every time, that is, tenant files, client files, etc. The templates allow several employees to use the system in the same way. ShareFile is also great for sharing large or multiple files with suppliers or third-party partners.

Cons: There is a bit of a learning curve getting ShareFile templates and user profiles set up, but once you are set up it is very user-friendly. In addition, I would like there to be more customizable features when receiving shared documents.

Pros: The ease of creating a link for someone to download files or documents, that otherwise could not receive attachments.

Cons: A less complex downloading screen, some customers did not understand the link and thought they had to sign up to download the files.

Overall: We have used Sharefile for about 3 years, It helps to have the option to send large files securely and fast. We have saved files on the Sharefile website to send out to different customers.

Recommendations to other buyers: Just that it is a good product, give it a try.

Pros: I have a professional business and so I like the clean, professional look of this service. It reflects well on my practice and appears more legitimate than something like Google Drive.

Cons: I think their functionality could be a bit more robust. I would really love to see an easy way to collect signatures from clients (without paying a ton extra), for example.

Overall: Good so far, though I'm open to switching providers at this point. Cost is a bit high for the market.

Pros: ShareFile is portable and can be used either online or in the desktop application.

Cons: ShareFile is unpredictable.

Over half the time I try to open and edit a file it says that the action cannot be performed.

Overall: ShareFile is a great program--when it works. It is wonderful to have many ways to access your documents and information. It is integral to virtual offices like ours.

Support from them for our issue is lacking. If they could help us resolve that, I could give higher ratings.

Pros: It is super easy to set up a folder for someone and make them an administrator so they can upload, download and delete files themselves. Now I don't have to spend half my day doing these tasks for people.

Cons: It seems to generate a new link every time you ask to share a link on the same folder. This can get confusing if too many people are working on one particular folder.

Overall: It lets me concentrate on MY job more because I am not constantly being interrupted to upload and download for others. Additionally, we have offices in several states so it means I don't have to make hard copies to mail to them anymore.

Pros: We use this product to help our clients bring in documents to us safely. It has been a great tool for us and them to know our client's info is secure.

Cons: The only thing I have found that is a bit weird is the permissions to each folder. Some times I can't click a certain staff person to get downloads or upload notification. They are grayed out. Other than that it has been a good thing for us.

Pros: - Approval Workflow for collecting feedback and getting approval from partners

- Very simple and easy interface

- Ease of adding new clients

- Unlimited number of clients

- Pay per user (admin)

- Notifications and automatic reminders

Cons: - Can't click links within a workflow

- Sometimes it'll time out and we've run into a few bugs

- Can't change admin in a workflow and only the administrator who started the workflow can add a new workflow. It would be nice to be able to reassign this because if someone is out of office or we need to change ownership, we have to start a new workflow and this confuses clients

Overall: We share marketing content with clients for their review and approval. They provide feedback and click "approved" once approved all within ShareFile.

Sharefile is our default file share. It is aptly named.

Pros: I don't find anything super exciting about Sharefile, which is great for the program itself. It sit there quietly and does its thing. There are sync oddities here and there, but nothing insurmountable. The administration of users is nice and clean. They don't let zombie files happen by accident.

Good stuff.

Cons: I actually don't have much to say here except that you can get into weird sync issues. If you're trying to fiddle with files you are an admin with but don't own, you can get into file duplication pretty easy. I find it annoying but only annoying. It's likely a good feature if I wasn't such a megalomaniac about it.

Overall: Files in a consistent place all the time. It does what its named.

Pros: Part of my job is to email confidential files for lawsuits to our attorneys so this software works great. It provides a secure download link where the receiver has to enter their credentials in order to download the files. It is also helpful when sending files too large for our email system to send.

Cons: Occasionally, receivers have trouble downloading the files. It's hard to tell if it's user error or program error though.

Overall: Every time my computer is upgraded, I request to have ShareFile reinstalled on Outlook. It is very helpful in accomplishing tasks in my profession. I never have issues with it on the user side of things. I've only had one attorney request that I send actual attachments in stead of the secure download link. I think it's because he's not very tech-savvy!

Pros: I work for a Marketing Department for a large health care system. Our department is responsible for creating video and photo content. This results in very large files. And our dilemma is how to get those files to the clients. ShareFile has solved the problem. We can now send large video and photo files with no issues...and they are backed up the ShareFile server....so if we need to share them with others, it's just a mouse click or two away.

Cons: I have no cons for this software. It has been a true game changer for us. It saves us time and headaches.

Overall: Quick way to send large files to clients. Also provides backup of sent files on server.

Pros: Sharefile is really easy to use. I had no training on it and understood immediately how to use it. Also it makes it simple to share files with other people securely and to collaborate with your teammates on the same documents or files. You can also recover past versions if you need to.

Cons: If you have a Lot stored on sharefile, it can be require a lot of clicking to access or move files. I recommend the app to make the process easier, or to set up your favorites to get two things more quickly.

Overall: Good for collaboration and multiple versions of the same documents, and good for sharing documents securely with people outside of your organization. It does what it does well.

Pros: We are able to share large files (too large to email) very easily both inside our network and outside with anyone in the world.

However you always have the option of using the citrix cloud as well.

Cons: Some administrative tasks and settings are a bit hard to find, but once you learn your way around it is not bad.

Overall: We use sharefile for sharing large documents that need to remain secure for government. We are able to have complete control over our own "cloud" storage using our own on premises SAN. Users find it very easy and friendly to use without any technical expertise.

Pros: The layout was sleek and arranged well, functionality was superb, I trusted the security, and the link generation was quick and easy. I liked how you could set it to make you aware when a secure link was opened. The ability to share large files, HIPPA compliance, good encryption protocol, and overall ability to customize the platform.

Cons: The price for what you get. There are programs that offer the same basic functionality for much less. Also the expiration length for the secure links could use more available options. Other than those two cons, I can't think of much else that I dislike about it.

Overall: The ability to send secure links with patient information attached, to other offices as well as to the patient themselves, in a HIPPA compliant platform. This increased productivity when referring patients of transferring records.

Overall: In the company I work for it's used all the time. Either for storing files which can be accessed from everywhere, and also the Sharefile plugin which is used even more. It offers some sort of alternative to onedrive/dropbox. Would advise.

Cons: The integration between Sharefile and RightSignature (the document signing piece) is still a work in progress. While there has been positive change since we have implemented the system, there is still some work to do. Aside from that, Sharefile has performed as we hoped.

Overall: Several services combined into one. Simple administration and ease of use. Our staff didn't have to do much training to learn to use it.

Pros: As administrator you can control other's access to each folder. You can send files for approval and for comment from clients or in-house employees. To access the file, you can set it so they must "log" their access so you know once they opened the file to know when to discuss a document. There are extra add-ons that work in conjunction with the application that enhances your company's ability to send/receive and sign documents and communicate per project with employees, subcontractors and clients.

Cons: Some features, such as workflows, are not as user-friendly and require extra training or set up with Sharefile support, at an extra cost. If you pay for access to extra applications such as RightSignature and Podio, there are easier ways around the more complicated features offered in Sharefile.

Overall: Employees are able to access and share documents and files to clients and subcontractors from the field.

Pros: I really like that you can share large files in various ways. I work in the construction industry and have to send large files every single day. I always use the "link" function. I drop the PDF file into sharefile, which in turn creates a link. I can easily copy and paste that link into an email and send it to whomever.

Cons: I don't have any issues with sharefile. It's simple and straight forward. I upload large files and create links to share with other people.

Overall: I am able to ensure that other people are receiving the information I am sharing. Sometimes, you can't be certain if a regular PDF attachment actually went through to the intended person. Especially if the file is borderline too large. Sharefile gives me the closure that this file did make its way to the intended person.

Pros: Security is unmatched and there's no arguing with that. When security is top of mind Sharefile makes the most sense. For users - the ability to send and receive extremely large files very quickly is great. You can also turn on notifications to track who is opening, sending, downloading files and set restrictions on all of those parameters which are excellent features for security concerns.

Cons: It's not quite there as a collaborative tool. We've a lot of issues in my office of people secretly using google docs instead of sharefile while working on projects with others. You can share folders with your coworkers but you can't all work on a document or spreadsheet together from multiple computers like you can with gsuite and that is frustrating for employees who work in highly collaborative roles/departments.

Sharefile is beneficial to my company. We are able to share information and being HIPAA compliant.

Pros: I like that you can access the files from any location. My billing office is able to communicate with me very easily. We are able to transmit transactions between each other efficiently.

Cons: It would be nice to be able to scan directly into the software. It is a little frustrating that you have to save it on the desktop and then upload it.

Overall: The software makes it very easily to communicate with our billing office. We are able to do our daily charges and submit records back and forth being HIPAA compliant!

Very easy to use.

Pros: Our clients love the ease of use of this software. I especially like the Outlook plug in that allows me to send and request large files with a click of a button!

Cons: I don't like that it doesn't integrate with Worldox. Having to save everything locally or upload to Sharefile before sharing is inconvenient.

Overall: Ease of document sharing with clients and opposing counsel on a site was customized for our organization.

Pros: It's very easy to use and it's wonderful for sharing files in a secure way, and it's good with email integration.

Cons: It's a rather tedious process for saving the documents after receiving them. I have a temptation to just send and receive via email by attaching documents to the email (because it's easier and quicker through email), but it's not as secure via email. It's more secure with Sharefile, but takes longer and is more tedious.

Pros: What I like most about this software is its ease of use. I can easily send HIPAA sensitive medical information to the necessary healthcare professional, such as x-rays to a x-ray radiologist.

Cons: What I like least about this software is how quickly the system will log you out if left inactive. I understand this necessity, and appreciate it most times, but sometimes it is premature in doing so.

Overall: This is the fastest and easiest way to share large and/or multiple files to clients. You can set link settings quickly. I did wish that the tracking and share settings are remembered under user preferences as opposed to having to modify the default after each log-in.

I use this on a weekly basis to submit invoices to clients.

Pros: It is extremely easy to use, and very user intuitive. I've never had an issue using it to send or receive files, nor have our clients to my knowledge. Number one, however, is security which is the point of using this service. I trust its security when sending documents which is vital.

Cons: Cost, cost, cost. The cheapest plan for just a personal user makes it not worth it to use personally. Geared towards corporate use, which is fine given that's what I think they want. I wish they had a reasonable cheap plan, but there are free options out there for personal use anyway. This is a good corporate solution.

Overall: I've used both personally and for work, and never had an issue. Would not pay for a personal plan however, due to their high pricing for personal use.

Cons: This solution is expensive but not in comparison to some of their competitors. Additionally, their user management process could be improved.

Overall: Overall this product has exceeded our expectations and we are very happy with the solution.

Pros: This meets my needs for secure encrypted sending of client documents. Regardless of size clients can access and download them easily. Combine this with the e-signature package and I get documents signed faster and easier then my old system. It works for photos as well.

Cons: Cost, it is a bit pricey and learning to use it has taken a bit of time. But I have to admit recent upgrades are making it easier and faster.

Overall: Speeds up time to get signature on documents. Allows me to send larger files then thru normal channels. Ability to send documents so a much more secure portal and receive them as well.

Cons: Having a Citrix Environment already in place already helps when setting ShareFile up initially, however, if ShareFile is your first Citrix product then you may run into some difficulties during initial setup. Citrix works seamlessly with other Citrix Products.

Pros: The security of this program makes it suitable for business processes when you need to share confidential documents. Users can access stored documents from the website and download them if necessary. Users can also create documents and upload them to Sharefile for others with necessary permissions to view and or change. Users also have the ability to create their own sub-folders to organize files they view, edit, or create.

Cons: Changes to documents are not real-time updates as with web-based programs. So only one person can update a document and then save their changes to Sharefile. If more than one person downloads and edits a file, the revisions must be merged into one document.
