6 Reasons you need ShareFile to kick start your small business

You kicked your old 9-5 to the curb, signed your name on the dotted line of a business loan (and possibly a new lease). You are officially your own boss! But with this freedom comes new challenges – how to grow on a lean budget, client security with limited resources, and keeping processes simple enough for a small shop. We understand that pain and ShareFile is here to help.

You need to save money

As a small business, running high efficiency a trim budget is top priority. Switching from an FTP site can save your business up to $6,000 per year while switching from burning CDs will save you $252 per year. Every little bit counts!

You need “anywhereness” more than most

When you’re juggling a business that demands your blood, sweat, and tears, you often answer emails and phone calls on life’s literal and metaphorical sidelines. While business hours might be over after 5pm, the ability to deliver excellent customer service quickly and securely during halftime at your child’s soccer game is a benefit ShareFile offers.

You need security even when you’re small

Even if you’re a one-person shop, you still have to be conscientious of sensitive client data. Do you communicate or store personal client information? Does the information you email need to be encrypted? It probably does and it’s better to be safe than sorry to avoid expensive risks.

You need to keep it simple

With ShareFile, you can combine file storage, large file share, e-signatures, and remote access all in one tool. Instead of paying five different bills per month, juggling multiple vendors and account logins, a single sign-on allows you to manage your Citrix account.

You need to do the work you want to do

If you opened your own CPA firm, you didn’t intend to also become a CTO. Likewise, if you opened a florist shop, you never dreamed of becoming versed in tax document security. Tools like our client portal and virtual data room cover the process gaps you might find yourself stuck in while our blog, Care reps, and social team are ready as virtual business partners.

You need someone who understands you

As we said in our post last week, we understand small business because we started as a small business in Jesse Lipson’s garage. We remember and celebrate our scrappy, hungry start-up life before Citrix and that spirit stays at the heart of everything we do.

Are you ready to kick your small business into overdrive? Give us a call. We’re ready for you.
