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

OneDrive is great in a high-bandwidth, corporate environment. Although I do access it from my mobile device it is a bit difficult to determine how to move files and if saved, to determine where a file is saved. If I have a folder with a large number of files, I would prefer to access it with a tool other than the mobile OneDrive app.

Pros

Citrix ShareFile

  • First and foremost, it is simple to use. Within minutes of our purchase of ShareFile, we were up and running with our first user and client.
  • Second, there are multiple ways to use and take advantage of ShareFile. There is a plug-in for Microsoft Outlook, a desktop app as well as Sync. All options are easily implemented and simple to navigate.
  • Third, When thinking about simplicity and making it as seamless as possible for your end users, you can also set up ShareFile as a Drive Map that allows your users to take advantage of the Windows file system without dealing with synchronization of account content.
  • There are so many advantages to this product, however, I feel that the simplicity and functionality are the main advantages. Citrix ShareFile tech support is amazing and they really (if you need help) answer all question extremely fast.

  • One Drive integrates wonderfully with the Microsoft Suite. Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents are easy to edit and create.
  • One Drive has a fair amount of free storage as well, we have not had to buy storage and have been using it for six years.
  • Sharing documents with others on One Drive is easy as well. The option to view or edit is very useful.

Cons

Citrix ShareFile

  • In my experience with Citrix ShareFile, I have not found any significant CONs to report. Many people may have Drobox and other products...I would say that these products are not an apples-to-apples comparison. There are significantly different pricing structures between products, some of them being a little on the pricey side if you are a small business.
  • I have heard of a few people having issues with browser compatibility, however, I have not. We have about 20 users that are using IE11 as well as Edge w/ Windows 10 Pro and we haven't experienced any issues at all.
  • The only function/feature I would like to see improved is the audit reporting and logs. You have to go to each folder/individual to obtain the activity log/report and to me that is cumbersome. I would like to see a centralized audit log generation tool that categorizes the users and the folders and provides details needed.

OneDrive

  • OneDrive client is horrible on macOS
  • Official OneDrive client is non-existent on Linux
  • OneDrive support on older Windows versions like 8.1 and less is still buggy
  • Sharepoint still tries to use the old OneDrive client by default. You need to go in the setting and tell it to use the new client.
  • Even if it is a lot better then before, OneDrive client is still often not able to sync folders with huge items or a huge amount of small items.

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.

This product is tightly integrated with our SharePoint and Outlook environment. The fact that it is as convenient as a cloud service that we are used to, but more secure is a winner.

OneDrive is still missing some key features. The web interface is pretty well organized, but should have more features. Like Google Drive uses build in web apps for editing documents, I don't want to be forced to download a file every time I want to edit it. Sometimes it is not responsive - it looks like it hanged up

The program runs quickly, it's fast and easy to use. Uploading and sharing are simple and user-friendly. I used it alone and not with any other programs. I would highly recommend it. You are able to organize your data into files and have it broken out in a way that is easy to locate. Once the data is in ShareFile you can share it with anyone you want by sending a link and then they can download it. It is a very good product to use and have!

It has a good performance, the pages load normally, access to the files, management, reports, everything is working well. With regard to integration with other systems, we have not done so yet.

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.

They are very similar, but since I am not part of the purchasing decision team, I do not know what criteria were evaluated. I used Google Drive in another company and I also rate it very well.

Return on Investment

Citrix ShareFile

  • The main ROI has been the ability to completely stop offering paper plans. All plans must now be accessed electronically saving the printing costs we incurred before.
  • A soft ROI would be the ability for users to access on-premise files remotely and allow them the ability to skip the previous need to drive back to the office or trailer.
  • When we used it, the Outlook plugin that automatically uploaded large files was a huge success at the company and is a big need for any company that does not have a product offering it.

  • Still no negative impact. Since it was implemented in the company, the impact has been positive due to the collaboration resources in the work environment.
