SmartVault Corporation
SmartVault sends out a cover letter with the tax returns that includes a link for them to download their tax returns, avoiding the insecurity of an email attachment. It does not include a statement retrieval feature but does work very nicely with a third-party app called FileThis. The majority of the users in the office have not been able to install the Outlook plug-in due to "a certificate error." In five years, SmartVault has not addressed this issue.

Reaching someone is more difficult than it should be. Also, they don't take possession of known issues always suggesting it is a local PC issue in initial conversations. That, of course, can be frustrating for the end-user.

ADrive
  • None, but it has been a good reference for associates to download files remotely

SmartVault Corporation
  • has made sharing documents with large numbers of clients easier
  • has forced us into using their service, or spending time to find a better alternative, in my experience.
  • Speaking personally the product has cost us several thousand dollars over predicted budget costs for a 3-year projection
