Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

It's a great application to backup your data automatically to the cloud and then access later. The automatic restore of certain folders is handy and one less thing to worry about when you're setting up a new PC again. I haven't really encountered any issues with Syncplicity to have any thoughts where it could be improved or where it wouldn't work.

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.

Pros

Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

  • By default, it is setup to backup my Desktop Shortcuts, My Documents, and my Internet Explorer Favorites folders. When I sign into a new PC, it automatically syncs these items, making it easy for my data to travel with me.
  • I'm able to easily share my items/folders with coworkers, granting them read or read/write access as required.
  • I like that items that are shared with me allow me to choose to sync them to my PC or not. This allows me to sync smaller items like documents and spreadsheets, but keep things like webex recordings stored in the cloud and not using up gigabtyes of space on my PC. :)
  • I like that, during times when I want to free up resources, I can pause the syncing of files.

  • Cloud document storage.
  • Transmission of tax returns to client.

Cons

Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

  • I would appreciate it if it backed up more than just Desktop, Favorites and Documents by default. I'm not sure if this was something chosen by my employer, but it would be nice if the whole profile folder was backed up by default, so my pictures, music, and videos folders were included.

SmartVault

  • They have cut back on support as have many SaaS companies recently.
  • The documentation can sometimes be a little difficult to follow.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

I use CrashPlan for my personal PC at home. I think both products have their pluses and minuses. Both products allow you to backup your selected data to the cloud. CrashPlan doesn't easily allow for file sharing (CrashPlan isn't really a collaboration tool as much as it is a backup tool). Both products have easy restore options. However Syncplicity automatically restoring certain data when syncing with a new PC is very handy and a feature that CrashPlan doesn't offer

Our due diligence on this application was a bit week. We read the reviews on its closet competition (Sharefile) but did not actually enter into a trial with them. We would definitely suggest that potential subscribers do so.

Return on Investment

Axway AMPLIFY Syncplicity

  • The ease of use saves me a lot of time.
  • Being able to easily share files with my coworkers also saves me time.
  • This allowed my company to reduce the size of our file server and in doing so, reduced our storage budget.

  • Expensive product but the ROI is still excellent.
  • Can't see how any accounting firm could get by without it.
