Looking For a New Year’s Resolution? Reduce Printing Costs & Eliminate Security Risk in 2012
While you may not believe in setting New Year’s resolutions, I personally think it’s important to set goals for yourself (and your business), adjust where needed and strive to obtain them. Whether you decide to set your goals at the beginning of 2012 or throughout the year, there are a few things you should consider for your business in the new year.
Do you or your coworkers use thumb (flash) drives to transfer information from one point to another? I’d guess you use them from time to time… when you have access to one and need to send a large document. It’s simple, right? Locate the flash drive (stored somewhere underneath the millions of papers piled atop your desk), wait for the flash drive to load, find your file, navigate to your email and attach the document from your flash drive. Oh wait. You got that error… the attachment size exceeds the allowable limit. How annoying.
Well you could always print the necessary documents and transfer them that way. Chances are most businesses print documents on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. A lot of them. In addition to printing costs, some companies may pay the extra costs associated with courier or shipping services to transfer documents. Ever thought of ways to significantly reduce the amount of documents that your office prints on a daily basis? You’ve heard about those companies “going green” but how do they do it?
There is also the option of hosting your own FTP to send and store files. The problem is, this generally results is more of a headache for your tech team. Oh yeah, and unhappy clients. In the words of one of our clients, “[Prior to ShareFile] we had our own FTP storage space on our server to use for transferring files but it was cumbersome for our clients to use (plus they needed FTP software) and it was impossible for us to track the activity on the site.”
The challenge with the above methods of file transfer is the security risk, the costs associated with printing/delivery and simply just the inconvenience. What if your business could send and receive files up to 10GB in size, exchange documents instantly, provide clients with 24/7 access to their documents and save money while doing so? You can. Go ahead; try it for yourself for free today.
