    If you need a file sharing, collaborative product with version control, permissions, etc. But don't want something you need a dedicated, highly technical person to administer, this is the option. Easy to use, has the features that most people use and not so worried about the features that only 1% of the companies out there use. ShareFile is perfect for small to mid-sized companies.

    Evernote

    Evernote is an excellent tool for keeping track of client relationships and taking notes. The indexing is excellent, with text in images and text. However, a Wiki might be better for large-scale collaboration. It is a perfect use case for it, and it is hard to beat. To-do lists that need to be tracked or have due dates assigned do not work well in Evernote. It's almost like a library that anyone can add to, edit, tag, and reference. Evernote has a limited checklist function in terms of tasks meant to be kept in one place rather than reviewed and organized over time.

    Pros

    Citrix

    • Authenticated electronic document signatures--self-signing, and sending out for signatures. This is a robust feature that also allows for additional information to be added to documents being sent for signatures, such as dates, notes, and items omitted but needed.
    • Encrypted emails through ShareFile, Citrix apps for Outlook, Gmail, and Mac email systems. Encrypted email messages cannot be cut/pasted, nor forwarded without encryption. If only the attachments need to be encrypted, the email message can be unencrypted. Also, two options for securely opening an encrypted email (one with less credentials, one with more).

    Evernote

    • Ability to share meeting notes with others (like that it works well with Rocketbook).
    • The To-Do list helps with organization and project deadlines.
    • Able to sync to multiple devices so you can use it in the office or in the field.

    Cons

    Citrix

    • Users grow quickly (each client gets a separate account). Automated pruning would be nice.
    • I'm not aware of integration with Office365 online (only the outlook app). This could make it harder for some users.
    • It would be nice to have something that auto-scans emails and attachments for PII and would require Sharefile for those emails.

    Evernote

    • The free application's feature will meet most users needs, but the Premium plan is expensive.
    • Though Evernote lets you create and manage notes effortlessly, its basic plan supports sync between two devices and does not support offline mode.
    • Can't export data easily to other applications.

    The cost is fair and the program does what it has promised to do. Customer service is attentive. I'm not aware of any better-sounding file sharing systems out there that would tempt us to discontinue ShareFile.

    Evernote

    I can't really imagine how much they'd have to charge me to make me quit Evernote. I can't really think of any technology that has changed my life as much without going back to email in the 90s, or the introduction of the iPhone. I know I sound ridiculous, but it would be really tough for me to live without it. If I were forced to choose between my smart phone (and keep in mind that I get lost in my driveway) and my Evernote, I'd probably choose my Evernote.

    Usability

    Citrix

    ShareFile is so easy to use I was able to download all of my projects files and have them set up to sync before my supervisor could even come over to explain the process to me. It is a neatly organized and intuitive software that allows even the less tech-savvy to become power users.

    Evernote

    • Basic visual organization - ability to create a notebook and store user notes inside of it.
    • Basic easy navigation - You can quickly move in and out of files and notes.
    • User intuitive addition - whatever you need to add to your document, it's relatively easy to understand and use.
    • We find overall that we still want some functionality in creating better task lists, boards, and other things that we find in Notion - which is the tool that we use as a team notebook/storage space.

    Generally issues are by connectivity and not Evernote availability but I have had issues in the past with cross-client consistency of data which Evernote Support has ID'd as bugs that are still unresolved as far as I know

    Performance

    Citrix

    Easy to use, easy to integrate with Outlook. I only gave it a 9 because I have found that sometimes it does not play nicely with Outlook and can slow it down. But, when that happens (not frequent), I restart Outlook and all is well again

    Support Rating

    Citrix

    Typically the support is very knowledgeable and interested in following an issue until it is fully resolved. I have not had any issues working with their staff as they are all polite and easy to communicate with. If the first or second level tech does not fix the concern then it is escalated until we get to someone who can close the case.

    I bet you won’t even need to call their support. Their product has never failed me. Simply put. But if you were to email them to gather some details or help, I bet they won’t disappoint you. Don’t worry about the support, it’s the last thing you should worry about this product.

    Make sure you think about your tags. If you end up with multiple similar tags then things aren't grouped together as you might prefer. For instance if you have a tag called Disney and Walt Disney, this will split up your articles. Evernote makes it simple to correct, but I suggest you make sure your users look closely at the existing tags before creating new ones.

    Alternatives Considered

    Citrix

    Dropbox was sufficient, but it required downloading Adobe Acrobat. And I'll tell you this - many people in our organization aren't the best with installing the 'right' software (i.e., they do a Google search, click a link, click the wrong download button and install some other nonsense like a toolbar or what have you) and then it has caused more issues than are needed. ShareFile is plug & play.

    Evernote

    For us, the simplicity and cross-platform capability of Evernote won out over OneNote - which is heavily Microsoft and not really as robust across all platforms. Also, further to that point it isn't pushing you to use any single format for files - you can add in any image type, file types etc. without issue whereas other solutions will push you to "open as" a docx file or likewise.

    Return on Investment

    Citrix

    • POSITIVE IMPACT: Considering the process we were using prior to ShareFile (FTP and WinZip), our ROI was almost immediate. ShareFile took the complexity out of the process and gave us control and audits over our file collaboration functions.
    • POSITIVE IMPACT: We all know that a happy user is soo much better than an unhappy one. I have approximately 20 users at this time and they have provided nothing but POSITIVE remarks about how simple and fast it is to use.
    • POSITIVE IMPACT: Centralized management as an IT Manager is paramount. ShareFile is easy to manage and deploy to end users. I would say it's as close to effortless as it can possibly be.

    • Evernote has allowed our school's over 3000 students and staff members to work more efficiently instead of spending time on making physical notes, clicking pictures, and uploading them to the cloud in order to share them
    • The investment in Evernote Premium has also allowed for heavier files to be attached in each note such as student work that allows teachers to be certain that students have followed deadlines and finished assigned tasks
    • Evernote has allowed our school to smoothly transition in and out of online learning as the local COVID-19 protocols change and student work requires one platform to be based on throughout
