The First of Two Million
Working at ShareFile for the past three years, I have had the opportunity to meet some fascinating people and learn about great businesses. Speaking with people about how they plan to use the product and helping to meet (and hopefully exceed) their needs is truly rewarding both personally and professionally. Now that our company has reached the remarkable milestone of reaching 2 million users worldwide, I’ve also had the chance to look back to touch base with one of our clients who started it all by taking the leap of faith to give ShareFile a try.
Paul Barth with Generate Design in Raleigh, North Carolina has been a ShareFile client since November 4, 2005 (the first day ShareFile released to the public). I recently had the pleasure of discussing ShareFile with Paul and how the product has helped his business over the past five-plus years.
Generate Design is a Raleigh-based interactive and graphic design firm that brings clarity out of a world of chaos. Design makes things look, feel, and function better. Since 1998, Generate Design has been recognized for its excellence in branding, logo and identity development, print design, interactive web design, and display works. After using FedEx for years, Paul was looking for a way to save some money and send files more efficiently to clients and partners alike.
“We’ve been with ShareFile for over 5 years. ShareFile has saved us thousands of dollars in courier and overnight shipping fees while adding speed to our services and processes. Additionally we have a simple way for customers and vendors to upload and download large files with no FTP software or complex knowledge of transferring large file sizes. Everyone loves the features and many of our own customers have adapted the systems into their websites and workflow functions.”
In addition to the money saved, Paul said he values the ability to request files from clients on the fly and be notified once the files have uploaded completely. He likes all of the new features we have released but still relies on some of the original features that put ShareFile on the map.
It is exciting to have two million users worldwide using the service. However, it is equally as exciting to look back and appreciate those who help you get started. Whether you have been with ShareFile for 5 years or 5 days, we are thankful for the chance to serve you. So to two million users and counting, thanks again for choosing ShareFile!
