Hightail is my go-to source when I need to send large files that would never fit as regular attachments. That being said, sometimes there are files that would perfectly fit as attachments but I want the security that Hightail provides when sending sensitive or private material. It's very comforting knowing that the content I'm sending is only being received and viewed by the intended parties. It's also comforting for my clients when it's THEIR content that I'm sending for review.

Pros

Oracle

  • One of the things that Beehive Enterprise Collaboration Server does well is providing a platform for collaborative communication. Various people from various ranks within the organization can interactively exchange ideas safely through the use of awesome tools provided by this software.
  • Another thing it does well is enabling a centralized management. A senior manager does not necessarily need to keep moving from one point to another to communicate. Basically, with this software, he/she communicate from the comfort of his chair across all the departments.
  • Generally, the software does really well in simplifying system administration, in that, it allows the IT department to wholly and easily enforce security and compliance requirements.

Cons

Oracle

  • The main aspect is the cost - They should trim it down a bit.
  • My pears have told me this. Even i am telling the same - The interface just fails to grab that attention. High time the team should work on this.
  • Though many aspects are brought into one product, they lacked to provide individual attention to each feature (like a messaging app) and improvise it.

  • Some of our recipients are not very tech-savvy and can get confused with how to download a file. There is some room for improvement by making it clearer where the user should click to download the file.

    The only feature that makes Beehive Enterprise Collaborative software stack up against similar software is unification. It is wholly unified. Basically, it allows IT to function as one platform providing services like email, team workspace, and conferencing. Uniquely, this results in saving time and cost related to managing separate systems

    Honestly, once we started using Google Drive more efficiently and saw what improvements OpenText Hightail had made, it was hard to choose. But now that we more consistently use Google Drive, I use it probably 75% more than I use OpenText Hightail for the same tasks. I'm not sure how much longer I'll be a customer at OpenText but it's great to have both options.

    Return on Investment

    Oracle

    • It is difficult to put a number on the ROI of a collaborative software, if not this then we would have used something else. It is not possible to pin down a number on a specific email or scheduling software.

    • Hightail simply saves time. We no longer struggle with trying to meet the requirements of OutLook. When we have a file that is too large to send via OutLook we just "hightail it".
