This seems to be a great fit for small teams as the at-a-glance approach works wonders for breaking up the vast amount of projects. You can add subtasks as well to keep the high-level folders at a minimum. Not sure how well it will do in an asset-heavy (i.e. agency) setting. Need to test that functionality more.

OpenText Hightail

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

Flow

  • Project management
  • Traffic controlling for designers
  • Reminders
Chloe Sayers | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenText Hightail

  • It’s great for sending large-sized art files for print
  • It’s secure and files can be easily tracked
  • I like that it tells you how long it will take for the desired file to upload
Saryia Green | TrustRadius Reviewer

Cons

Flow

  • It would be great to be able to integrate with Google Calendar as this way it is much easier to keep an order of important dates.
  • Your search is somewhat tedious because even though you have searched for a file before, it does not save it, so it must be searched from the beginning.
Hanna Bedoya | TrustRadius Reviewer

OpenText Hightail

  • 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.

Alternatives Considered

Flow

Flow and Asana have many similar properties. The largest difference would be the flow desktop app - which we love. On the other hand, Asana allows free and paid users, as well as guests. The feature gap, however, has been narrowed even more in recent months.

OpenText Hightail

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.

  • We use Hightail for sending out proposals to prospects. It is a major part of that process for us.
  • Hightail is one of the first touchpoints a client has with the agency.
