Manage Documents Effectively in a Collaborative Environment

When creating a new project or updating an old one, the ideal is to have as much input from a variety of perspectives as possible. However, this could potentially lead to a “too many cooks in the kitchen” situation which in turn could lead to a mistake or oversight resulting from managing documents.

Unlimited file versioning with Citrix ShareFile acts as a buffer to this potential for accidental overwrites by maintaining all previous drafts of a file in its revision history. This means if you want to revisit an idea your co-worker suggested in version three of your document and your team is currently editing version 10, you can still easily reference that earlier draft with just a few clicks.

ShareFile and StorageZones

ShareFile also offers a flexible data storage plan that helps you manage documents and set your plan’s preferences to meet the specific requirements of your business for data sovereignty, compliance, performance and costs. You can store data on location at your business site, in the cloud or in a combination of the two. More storage options means even fewer restrictions on how many rewrites and creative spins on content you can play around with for your latest presentation.
