Effective Document Collaboration Breeds Successful Innovation

The phrase was penned over a decade ago but still holds plenty of truth today. “Collaboration equals innovation,” wrote Michael Dell in a 2003 editorial for InformationWeek. Dell knows a thing or two about innovation, as he launched a well-known computer company under his surname.

Twelve years ago, Dell saw the value of document collaboration. With that in mind, he incorporated several features into his next line of computers that catered to collaborative efforts. These features included integrating wireless Internet capabilities into his company’s new laptops.

At Citrix ShareFile, we too recognize the importance of being able to collaborate on documents. Our cloud-based file-sharing software makes for fast, easy and powerful document collaboration for all industry types and millions of professionals all over the world.

The collaborative efforts of ShareFile

Collaboration on a document is only as good as the platform which you’re using. Sending a file as an email attachment and asking for feedback creates a one-way street with a lot of detours. Internal networks can leave clients and colleagues on the outside looking in.

Here’s how document collaboration occurs with ShareFile:

Files are uploaded to a secure server protected with top-of-the-line encryption and multiple backups.

● Permitted users can access a file of up to 100 GB within seconds of its upload from any location on any device with Internet capabilities.

● All file activity is recorded in detail and previous versions of the document are saved for easy reference.

● Files can be saved for as long as needed through unlimited storage and archiving.

Dell credits the innovation with his computers directly to collaboration. “This system is a result of a collaborative development process that brought together [our] customers and design engineers,” he said.
