Hightail

HighTail is an easy solution for sending large files and not requiring the contact to have an account in order to download the file. It offers one-click downloading of the files which makes it really easy on the contact. If you are just looking to send files and track their whereabouts, this is a great solution.

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.
