FTP Hassles: What your clients want you to know
For sending specs, renderings, animations, submittals and the like, FTP is difficult, time consuming and unreliable. Expect delays if your client lacks the right logins, passwords or software. Also, errors can occur during the slow transfer that will force you to start all over again.
With reputable online file-sharing services, you can share files and folders up to 100 GB in size anywhere 24/7 with just a few clicks. You don’t have to worry about failures, and you’ll know when your files have been delivered. Compared to FTP, online file sharing is quicker, simpler and maintenance free — most have no software, usernames, passwords or complicated downloads required.
