With the explosion of smartphone and tablet use over the last 5 years, mobile applications that make their users’ lives easier and more convenient have proliferated.

The ever-expanding world of 140 characters or less has caught fire over the last several years. Twitter’s mobile application, which perfectly caters to the social media site’s attitude, has seen its popularity rise along with the original website.

When is it good to talk about yourself?
When you speak on behalf of a company.
It may seem counterintuitive, but it’s true. A company with self-awareness is able to connect with consumers on a more human level. Just think about these three ways that a good story can help you reach others:
It’s satisfying to support a company that you admire. Making your values and story known encourages customers to remember you.
Most of your employees want a career, not just a job. When employees know your story, they know where they fit into the broader narrative.
Many of my co-workers support customers across the globe, spanning numerous time zones. If they aren’t responding to customers in Australia, they are sleeping or assisting customers in Europe and other regions. Email does not stop flowing into their inboxes. I mean, there is not one hour of the day when email pauses for them. Overwhelming, right?
The great news is that it doesn’t have to be. There are a plethora of organizational experts and systems out there that can show you how to get and stay organized and implement an organizational system all your own. In regard to email, there are a few key tips to follow that can help you keep your workflow under control and your inbox as close to zero as possible.
1) Schedule. Set aside time every single day to review your inbox. When and how much time you spend is up to you. I’ve seen folks process email for 30 minutes in the morning, 30 minutes right after lunch and 30 minutes at the end of the day. While others may choose to do 45 minutes to 1 hour in the morning and also in the evening. The key here is to respond to any email that will take you less than 2 minutes to complete. If it is going to take you more than 2 minutes, file it away and respond to it during your next email review session. Not only will you feel more in control of the content flying at you, but you will also prevent email from dictating your workflow.
My name is Preston Kiser and I am a Software Test Engineer here at ShareFile. Since starting with the company in 2010 I’ve had the pleasure to see a number of new releases and changes to our system, and I would like to take some time to discuss one of my personal favorites – ShareFile Sync.
Today marks the two year anniversary of the debut of Desktop Sync. The release of Sync allowed users to quickly and easily integrate ShareFile into their daily workflow. We found that Sync was able to fulfill a variety of needs – allowing accountants to seamlessly upload tax documents to their client folders and ensuring that sales reps in the field always have the most up-to-date figures. The best part of all – it’s fully automated!
As you know, we’ve just begun a new year, and with the new year come new resolutions. One of the top resolutions many people make is to begin a new job or career. If your resolution is to work for an exciting, growing company in 2013, we’ve got great news—Citrix ShareFile is hiring!
You may be wondering what makes Citrix ShareFile such a great place to work. The reasons are numerous, but here are the top five why you should consider joining our rapidly growing team:
New office space. Since Citrix is creating 337 new jobs in Raleigh in the coming years, there needs to be a place to house all of the new employees! The new 130,000-square-foot facility will be located in the warehouse district of downtown Raleigh and will include amenities to inspire creativity and healthy lifestyles, such as a yoga studio, indoor/outdoor dining and a rooftop garden.
No matter what the industry, ShareFile helps businesses securely transfer files with clients and colleagues. However, one industry in which ShareFile is becoming increasingly popular is the legal field. Regardless of the type of law, attorneys find ShareFile an important part of their business – from medical malpractice and personal injury to intellectual property and corporate law.
I sat down with Beth Longley, Director of ShareFile for Legal, to learn more about why ShareFile is so helpful for law firms.
Will: Why do you think ShareFile is such a big hit within the legal field?
Beth: The amount of data that attorneys work with is mind-boggling. This data is extremely sensitive, and legal documents are often very large files. Collaborating on these documents can be cumbersome and difficult to manage. Until ShareFile, there wasn’t a solution out there that really combined security and ease of use. ShareFile gives attorneys a simple, turnkey solution to manage and transfer their data, increasing overall productivity and workflow.
