OpenText Hightail

Hightail is my go-to source when I need to send large files that would never fit as regular attachments. That being said, sometimes there are files that would perfectly fit as attachments but I want the security that Hightail provides when sending sensitive or private material. It's very comforting knowing that the content I'm sending is only being received and viewed by the intended parties. It's also comforting for my clients when it's THEIR content that I'm sending for review.

Cons

  • Sometimes anyone who has touched a project still receive notification even if they don't need it
  • Having to manually enter information from other areas

  • It would be nice to track who is downloading, not just unknown.
  • Files often expire within a few days, it would be nice if they lasted longer. We sometimes have to resend if the client didn't click right away.

Alternatives Considered

Hightail has the specific features we were looking for and makes it super easy to send large files over email. Its cost and ease of use makes it our preferred solution for sending large files. It doesn't have all the features of Dropbox, but is also lighter weight and tasks can be accomplished faster.

Return on Investment

  • ROI
  • tracking

  • Being able to quickly and competently send clients files and content for review is incredibly important. It's one thing to have documents that can be worked on collaboratively in real time. But audio and video files usually need review. Hightail is great for that and has made working with clients a breeze.
  • Efficiency and fast-paced movement are important. Hightail offers very quick interaction with its software. I really like that about the platform and it speeds up my day and workflow.
  • It's hard to put an exact ROI on its use but I would say that, in all the time I've been using Hightail, it's helped add to my bottom line by being able to complete projects faster and provide good service to clients. Would I say that repeat business is a result of using Hightail? Not necessarily, but it's definitely added to my ability to work efficiently and securely with clients. So it's part of the overall picture.
