eFilecabinet is the best bang for the buck Digital Document Storage Solution that will replace your Physical File Cabinets in your office and lead you down the paperless digital path. With this price point comes some hiccups and speed bumps that you need to be aware of (broken software due to updates from time to time, missing features, confusing interface due to multiple ways to access your data, etc), but once you find work arounds to these items, you will see how powerful efilecabinet is.

Pros

  • Safeguards files against ransom ware while enabling quick recovery
  • Ensures we retain full control over data residency and security
  • Multi-folder sync and secure file sharing

eFileCabinet

  • eSignature integration has been a game changer four our organization. The simplification of obtaining client signature on necessary documents through this system has virtually eliminated our need for physically mailing documents to clients.
  • With our documents hosted by eFileCabinet, our team has increased capability to work from home/while on the road without needing to take along physically paperwork.
  • The search function that allows for on-page searching has been extremely useful when we're looking for older documents that we can't quite recall the title of.

Cons

CTERA Drive

  • Not easy to manage permissions on backup
  • Just a little improvement on reporting functionality
Matt Storer | TrustRadius Reviewer

eFileCabinet

  • It's only as good as your system for filing. We file by job number and client, without that it would be unusable, figure that out when you implement.
  • Sometimes it's slow to load.

We do not have any issues with eFile Cabinet. It has become just part of our daily life - finish files and projects and save all the documentation here. Need to research? Find it in eFile. I personally cannot imagine my job without it.

eFileCabinet gets the job done and is fairly easy to use once you find a few workarounds and understand how the software works. Using the browser interface next to the desktop sidekick app is needed when it should all be included in a single app. Users always wonder "why do I have to open both the browser and the sidekick interfaces to do a simple task". Basically one does what the other doesn't do and Sidekick is needing to be open regardless for the printer/scanner upload functions, but is limited on what you can do compared to the browser interface. The mac Sidekick is still in beta and makes me wonder how much longer it will be supported or updated...

The software loads very quickly, their servers are great. The software can be a tad buggy or quirky at times but it gets the job done which is why it's an 8 out of 10 rating. Their desktop printer and scanner software could use an update so that windows updates don't break it from time to time too.

It makes workflow so much easier, including the ability to save in the cloud makes it accessible from anywhere. I save very little on our server now which means this also makes filing more secure. I literally save and research via the platform several times a day.

Alternatives Considered

CTERA Drive

From a disaster recovery standpoint, CTERA Drive has the best built-in disaster recovery tools and hybrid cloud backup of files features. It provides all of the benefits of a modern file management system without any of the security compromises that come from storing files in a shared cloud service.
Matt Storer | TrustRadius Reviewer

eFileCabinet

We find eFileCabinet to be more secure than the alternative products we were using at the time, around 5 years ago. The system is far more robust and better suited the large number of files we needed to store, plus the amount of security and restrictions we needed to be able to provide for our clients

Return on Investment

CTERA Drive

  • Stores data at ⅛th of the total cost of traditional backup approaches
  • 100% automation
  • Real-time data availability
  • Cost of CTERA Drive less than annual maintenance of traditional backup methods
Matt Storer | TrustRadius Reviewer

eFileCabinet

  • Pricing is budget friendly.
  • Pay only for the number of users you need. I needed 2, so I pay for 2. Other DMS programs come with up to 5 users and charge accordingly. This gives me the flexibility to grow my business at my rate - not someone else's.
