"Does Everything We Need"

What do you like best?

There are 3 things I like the best. I love that I can send files to colleagues inside and outside of my business quickly and monitor behavior and get alerts when files are accessed or uploaded.

Also, I love the permissions. They're robust and can handle a lot of obstacles.

Maybe the best part is the access options. I like SFTP and using an SFTP client, but the mounted drives and browser access makes it a more seamless experience.

What do you dislike?

The permissions, while robust, can be tricky. I get why they are because they're pretty advanced, but it could be improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As of right now, they don't do file sync. This is good for us, I don't want film everywhere and I don't have to deal with the headaches that come with it not syncing right or missing files or slow sync.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use it to send football film back and forth. It streamlines that a lot. I know when someone accesses the video we sent. Unlimited file size is huge for us -- which works best through an FTP client to be honest.

SmartFile is where we hold all of our files, so it's not just sending and receiving files. It's accessing them anywhere we have an internet connection.

"SmartFile is very easy to use (short learning curve) and is a very valuable tool in our organization"

What do you like best?

I like the fact that it is so streamlined and simple to use.

What do you dislike?

I have been using SmartFile for more than 6 years and have no complaints.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I highly recommend you give SmartFile an opportunity. They won't let you down based on my experience.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use SmartFile to share our plans and bid documents with our subcontractors and our personnel on projects we have been awarded. This saves valuable time and money bidding construction projects and keeping current projects rolling. Literally minutes from when I receive updates from our clients I can upload and pass along to our team.
