Share project files simply and quickly

The time-saving solution for sending even your largest design files

Using email and portable drives to handle sending hundreds of very large files is a tedious, time-wasting task. Avoid these headaches by giving team members seamless access to files in the cloud, regardless of whether they are in the office or at worksites. Send files to your team or outside businesses. Request files from colleagues and clients. Get signatures instantly online. Give clients a way to upload files or access project files directly on your website. With ShareFile, you can get more done faster and focus on your work instead of how you share files.

Key features:

• Share project files and folders up to 100 GB in size with just a few clicks.

• Use the ShareFile Plugin for Microsoft Outlook to email large files right from your inbox.

• Access, share, edit and request project files on the go with the mobile apps for any iOS, Android, Windows or Blackberry device.

• Give vendors, subcontractors, engineers and others a way to send you large files with our ‘Request a File’ feature, an email link that uploads files directly to ShareFile.

• Get fast turnaround on signatures for contracts and proposals with the legallybinding e-signature feature right in your ShareFile account.

Keep your projects going without hassles
