Industry-tailored workflows: ShareFile has 10 key industries and the workflow will match that industry. For example: for accounting, the app will display options for clients to sign documents, which cuts out on them having to post or fax documents. I think it is not as good for small businesses especially if you have part-time employees as paying for their access as well can add up quickly for overall costs

I think Google Drive is used to the maximum in companies that have several locations nationwide and with a large number of employees. The possibility of communicating and working in the cloud regardless of distances is an important advance from the technological point of view. Honestly, I do not see space where you can not enjoy the service offered by this software. It is ideal for large and small work teams.

Pros

Citrix ShareFile

  • I love that I can annotate directly on a file. For example, I can mark the area where I find some weird imagery or mark some content that I'd like to change. I can make annotations on the side for the designer to review.
  • It's so easy to upload content, add recipients, create a workflow, review annotations, reply to annotations, upload new versions, and so on.
  • The file system is like any other you'd expect so there is no learning curve. You can create folders and sub-folders (both personal and public), star items, share/request files, and more. It's so quick and easy to get started.

Cons

Citrix ShareFile

  • Some hang-ups with large files only being accessible in view-mode
  • Mobile viewing can be slow as files have to download first to be viewed
  • Search features good be better as you are limited to filtering options

Google Drive

  • There is a big problem when you share a document within a group of people and that is that anyone who have accces to the document can erase without any warning to the other members of the group, this can be very dangerous if you have problems in your teamwork and someone wants to sabotage the job.
  • Google Drive unlike gmail and another apps has no opportunity to use without internet connection, that means that you do not have the opportunity to work or consult a document if your internet connection it is down or it is unstable.
  • Google Drive only offers a limited number of free gygabytes of storage, if you manage big files like music or videos you can have some trouble because if you do not want to pay for the premium version, you have to constantly erase your files every time you need to put new ones on the app.

It's the cheapest, most effective platform we've found to store files in the cloud.

I think most customers could be up and running in less than an hour. Their tool is very easy to learn and use. Their application is laid out well and their support is very helpful.

While I might feel like the phone is too small to use to create content, they have done a great job in creating a UI / UX that doesn't prohibit you from creating that content on your phone. On a full blown desktop they have done a great job in creating a suite of office tools that can compete with Microsofts' Office suite. While saying that I do think it's fair to point out that Excel will still knock the socks off of a Google Sheet, due to the fact that it's running in a browser.

The pages load quickly. The sites always up. They have a number of free add-in tools or widgets you can use. We like their desktop tool. We use their desktop tool which eliminates the need to login to their site to pull down files from our customers. They also have a folder sync tool that I've just started to experiment with.

Its surprising features always amaze me and make me use Google Drive. There is one [benefit] that is more of a neat feature than a benefit, but it’s still worth mentioning. Google Drive’s image recognition technology can easily recognize the content of my pictures. For instance, if I have visited a famous landmark on a recent vacation and upload my photo in front of it, the picture comes up when one searches for that landmark using Google Drive’s search.

Alternatives Considered

Citrix ShareFile

Citrix ShareFile has the workflow capabilities and collaboration features that others don't. This made the solution more appealing to us.

Dropbox is only file storage and sharing. Google Drive is much easier to make changes to documents and then see the changes live. You can have more than one collaborator on the document at a given time- things you can't do with Dropbox. The web based platform allows fewer restrictions on device users

Return on Investment

Citrix ShareFile

  • The subscription per user allows for an economical method for provisioning access and issuing additional licenses when needed at a low cost.
  • Total cost is much lower than other tools available.
  • ROI has been insignificant due to inability to really track how much efficiency it has added to our business. Previously, other alternatives were used to share secure data with customers.

  • For the organization it is essential to use this tool. We avoid many expenses in nonsense technology.
  • The saving in time and money is evident and for this reason we occupy the budget in other activities.
  • The commercial relations with our suppliers are more fluid and therefore our services increase by a good percentage
