Aspera Managed File Transfer

This is well suited in a high paced, collaborative work environment where a large volume of media needs to constantly be shared on a regular basis.I recommend this program if you need to share media with multiple partners, in smaller work settings this program might not be the best suited for media sharing.

Leapfile Managed File Transfer

We replaced ShareFile, that we had used for 7 years, due to a cost increase. LeapFile appeared to provide the exact same solution for a better price. However, the headaches we are experiencing with the product are costing us valuable time, money and frustration, both among our staff and between our clients.

Cons

  • The upload window doesnt stay on top of the web browsers. It kept getting lost if another browser tab was opened.
  • The system lacks ability to customize the due notifications when the upload/download is completed. The users should be able to choose if they want a sound notification or another way to be notified of large uploads/downloads that take time.
  • Multiple downloads of the same name (same file)have no distinct file names automatically given by the system to distinguish between them. I think the system should prompt an error message in that instance.

  • The interface is almost all text-based with minimal graphics. Because of that it can be difficult for our employees and our clients to quickly decide what action to take to complete their downloads.
  • We have found the admin controls to not work consistently, causing lots of headaches.
  • Some emails sent via the Outlook plugin will cause formatted text to look extremely confusing on the download page that a client must view in order to take an action to retrieve their files. The text shows all the HTML code wrapped around it.
  • Uploads web page will tend to hold a cookie that "remembers" an expired link, causing our clients to receive an error.

Alternatives Considered

Aspera Managed File Transfer racks up evenly against its' competitors. I use different programs to share and upload media to different affiliates, however this program seems to be one of the most popular in the industry. This could be due to the ease of use, and the fact that media is able to be shared in a very fast time frame.

Similar functionality but LeapFile has a lower cost and a more basic interface. ShareFile was infinitely easier to use for both our employees and clients

Return on Investment

  • I am able to share/receive large bite files very fast
No photo available
  • Too much time spent on addressing individual client issues while attempting to send or retrieve files.
  • Too much time spent on testing and troubleshooting our employees' issues while attempting to send or retrieve files.
