Finding the best document sharing and collaboration solutions

Online collaboration and online document and file sharing are no longer for larger, international firms. Business of all sizes can benefit from these secure and flexible solutions. So how can you best implement document sharing and collaboration software for your firm? What factors should you take into account? How can you keep it all secure?

The benefits of document sharing collaboration

The Internet was formed years ago to allow researchers from widespread facilities to access the same data. In that sense, cloud-based document sharing and collaboration are keystone concepts. The benefits are multiple: Employees can work on the same project from distant locations, conserve physical space and manage projects more efficiently. Collaboration also enhances productivity among employees.

Simply put, online file sharing and storage makes work in today's digital world easier. Sending data with Citrix ShareFile to remote locations is as simple as clicking a mouse.

File versioning: a communications feature

Though ShareFile doesn't offer document sharing collaboration in real time, you can share ongoing drafts easily as a large team. The optional feature of file versioning allows employees to complete projects as if they were all in the same room.

ShareFile provides an easy way to send large files securely. Thanks to 256-bit, class-leading encryption, your documents will be protected, meeting standards acceptable to financial institutions and HIPAA. Cloud-based document sharing collaboration can be as safe or safer than using a secure file transfer protocol server, without the lag times and slow upload speeds associated with SFTPs.

At ShareFile we want your file storage, document sharing and collaboration experience to be free of difficulty. We offer 24 hour, U.S.-based customer support, so you'll always be able to complete your project anytime, anywhere. Our custom-built plans are designed for businesses small and large.
