As more companies begin to embrace mobile workstyles and the ‘Bring Your Own Device (BYOD)’ phenomenon continues to explode, Citrix is expanding its mobile solutions to ensure that employees are able to seamlessly, safely and securely work from anywhere at any time.
In today’s world it seems like more and more people are moving away from desktop computers and trading them in for laptops and the increasingly popular tablet devices. The benefits to tablets are endless but one common answer is mobility. Having a tablet means you can work from anywhere: the metro, home, in-flight, on vacation—you get the idea. But with people increasing the amount of time they work away from their desk, it’s important to make sure that the tools we are using are equipped with the right tools—in other words, Apps!
So what are the best apps for businesses? I’m recommending five categories of apps that everyone should have on their tablet. Take a look:
Are you an iOS user? The ShareFile app is the easiest way for you to access your ShareFile account to exchange large or sensitive business files whenever you want, wherever you want. Current features of our mobile apps allow you to browse your ShareFile account and download files to your device, easily open and manage downloaded files, email files from your account, request uploads to your account via email, add users to existing folders in your ShareFile account, sync files across all devices, upload files directly from your mobile device and more!
The newest versions of our popular Android applications were released this month! These updated features will allow users to stay up to date and continue file sharing on-the-go.
The updates include:
-Upload files to your ShareFile account using our new file browser or the ‘Send’ option from any application
-Send links to entire folders
-Sort files and folders by title, date uploaded, size, or creator
-Receive updated versions of files that you downloaded from your ShareFile app automatically with auto-sync
AKQURACY is a full-service, data-driven marketing communications agency. Utilizing its covertly obtained research, the agency develops top-notch strategies and creative for its clients, resulting in effective and impactful campaigns. Before the agency found ShareFile, it used email or an FTP client to exchange documents, which proved to be complicated and restrictive. The team needed a better, more streamlined approach to working with clients and vendors. Security was also a major issue, since the agency handles a lot of confidential information for clients.
Currently, the agency sends and receives a massive amount of data files and transfers extremely large creative files to its vendors. Scott Petinga, President of AKQURACY, says “Security is by far the biggest benefit of ShareFile. We work with a plethora of teams within any given client and not everyone needs the same level of access to project files. With ShareFile’s granular folder-level permissions we’re able to customize security settings, enabling specific users to have access to specific files. This keeps us compliant with legal regulations regarding the privacy and security of confidential information.” Scott explains that ShareFile is also much more streamlined because of power tools like Desktop Sync, Drive Mapping, Outlook Plug-in and mobile apps, which make workflow much faster and more efficient for employees working remotely.
In today’s session conducted by Jesse Lipson and Ed Cheely live from Synergy Barcelona, attendees will learn how ShareFile is used as an alternative to FTP and email attachments, common use cases, and more info around plug-ins and downloadable power tools offered.
The big announcement is regarding our new mobile app. Our customers spoke. We listened. The new app will feature sync capability, enhanced security using encryption APIs, ability to upload files and remote wipe. This just in… the app was submitted to the Apple App Store less than 24 hours ago.
The new ShareFile mobile app with allow users to get seamless access to all files and folders on-the-go. Earlier this year, we released file sharing applications for the Apple iPad and iPhone, Android phone and tablet, Windows phone and an app for Blackberry users. Apps are available free to download for ShareFile customers.
Apple’s iPad features a new way for business professionals to work. With apps like Mail, Calendar, Notes, and Safari, it’s easy to leave your laptop at home and work while on the move. The iPad makes it easy to collaborate with colleagues remotely and access important business documents wherever you may be. Not only does the iPad work as a great document reader, but it is also a useful tool for filling out and even signing documents.
Web conferencing is also made easy with the iPad. With its front and rear facing cameras, users can easily connect with business colleagues while traveling. Apps like WebEx and GoToMeeting are easy-to-use and make web meetings painless for business users.
Another cool way that the iPad can be used in your business is conducting presentations and viewing charts. The iPad can be especially helpful when hooked directly to a TV or large projector for a business presentation. During the presentation process, there is generally a need to exchange large documents that may be too large or confidential to send via email. That’s where the ShareFile app for iPad comes into play. The iPad app is optimized for a tablet screen and processing power and users can easily browse files and share them via ShareFile without downloading. All data transmitted between the tablet app and the user’s mobile device is encrypted, adding an extra layer of security that’s necessary for sensitive business files. The ShareFile iPad app also helps businesses go paperless!
