iCloud is also great to keep access to photos synced across devices. Ex: I can snap a photo at a job site and have access to that photo on my desktop when I return to my office. I can then drop the photo into a document that is stored in iCloud and have instant access to that document on my iPad at a client's office later in the day. Seamless transitions make life much easier.

Our forms for summer camper parents vary depending on the needs of the camper (i.e. allergies, nutrition requirements, & program desirability such as horseback riding or preferred cabin mates). This situational form allowance is a breeze with fileinvite, and the setup process is intuitive and very easy to manage as a collaboration across our entire team

Pros
Apple
  • Syncing files, appointments, Notes and contacts. If I'm away from home, and set an appointment using my phone, that appointment automatically updates real time to my home laptop and vice-versa.
  • It stores files (e.g photos) nicely
  • Once it's set up, it's fairly easy to use.

Cons
Apple
  • Customization - iCloud is great at the stuff it does well. But it lacks features that some competitors (in Google Drive or Dropbox) do really well. API support for third-party apps is really great for some other people.
  • Remote use - Managing or accessing information from iCloud while not on one of your logged-in apple devices can sometimes be an issue. From a work computer for example. It doable, but the experience is much less user-friendly.
  • Ability to edit documents on the cloud similar to google docs or some other competitors

  • It takes forever to delete unwanted document in my experience.
  • The signature never appears on the right spot and the box can't be resized.
  • Our problem has always been to collect dozens of documents to submit an application.

It's so seamless that I can't imagine another product doing a better job synchronizing all of my devices. I simply do not think about it at all. Everything happens behind the scenes and I'm confident that Apple keeps my data safe and secure. I'm a happy customer as far as this is concerned. I have not had a bad experience with this service.

Usability
Apple
While it may be great to use with other Apple products, I find it's an absolutist-style workflow to be debilitating and to lead to many problems. When you sign into the cloud, it completely takes over your device in many ways that you don't notice at first until there is a problem.

Aside from a few minor recommendations, the solution is well thought through and very easy to set up. As a matter of fact, the onboarding support by the team was fantastic, and the ongoing availability to help while we were/are learning the platform has been extremely friendly and reliable.

Performance
Apple
Occasionally, large files that haven't yet been synced require a few minutes to pull down but I've rarely noticed delays. It does a good job of keeping data cached on my local machines while updating them with changes from other machines transparently.

It has been pretty smooth so far. There was an issue earlier this week that resulted in corrupted invites whereby the unique secure link failed, but I was able to resubmit the invitations quite simply, and they've assured me the issue was unusual and I won't be alarmed unless it happens again sometime soon.

Apple
Apple customer service is fantastic. iCloud is built with Apple in mind and its design is extremely intuitive and user-friendly. Additionally, whenever our team has encountered issues, the speed of Apple support has been more than timely in addressing our issues and solving our request. We have encountered relatively few issues in my time with the platform and this only improves our overall score for those who keep the platform stable.

Apple does offer an alternative to Office & the Google Docs family but trusting to use it with both internal and external parties is tough. Google is more universal and easier for 3rd parties to collaborate with. Apple works well for a closed internal group that is native to Apple's ecosystem. Google offers more storage space than Apple

FileInvite has a lot of nice features, but the overall cost is the company's downfall. We were able to get a lot of the same features that we need for a lot less with other companies and providers.

Return on Investment
Apple
  • If I lose track of my credentials or my continuing education documentation, I could end up not being able to renew my certification. This would lead to a major loss in revenue.
  • Time is money and having all of my required documents easily accessible in iCloud saves me time and allows me to work more efficiently.
  • My Apple devices were certainly not cheap purchases. iCloud has allowed me to maximize my productivity through synchronizing my work no matter which device I'm working on.

  • Positive feedback from clients and employees who have used this vs Docusign.
  • Not sure about the exact ROI, however, I know that this has had significant cost savings vs the previous software.
