Google Drive

Great Adaptation in:
-Storage, editing and collaboration of files to access them from any device with an internet connection, promoting teamwork.
-With the Google Forms function, it is ideal for gathering information quickly and easily, reaching our clients wherever they are.Inappropriate:
-Store large volumes of data in Spreadsheets since they have limitations in number of cells and / or file size.

WeTransfer

I would definitely recommend WeTransfer - especially the paid version. I feel like all of the shortcomings with the free service (file size limit & content deletion after 7 days) are all fixed when you upgrade your account, and the service is not very expensive. It only costs $12/monthly or $120/annually. WeTransfer makes it so easy to send files, and the additional features such as creating a link to your content & password protection are great. Very straightforward & easy to use.

Pros

Google Drive

  • That's the first cloud storage service that's both good and free. using more and more data in one place is, in my view, a good strategy.
  • Google Drive is one of my favorite tools and I use it frequently to store files, official documents, data, images, PDFs, and even short videos relevant to my office work.
  • You don't have to be concerned with hacking because this security is so secured.
  • [An] excellent option for searching.
  • Configuration and login are simple.

WeTransfer

  • You don't have to sign up for an account, you can just use it when visiting the website.
  • It is really simple and straightforward to use.
  • It has never failed me.
  • It tells you when your files have been successfully sent and when the other person downloaded it.

Cons

Google Drive

  • The biggest problem that comes up is when sharing a file and you accidentally don't give the person access. It's easy to forget. I shared something yesterday and then closed my computer, not realizing I never gave anyone permission to view it. Maybe the UX could bring it to your attention rather than you have to search it out.
  • Honestly, the rest is great. No notes.
Cameron Michael Rhoads | TrustRadius Reviewer

WeTransfer

  • The price for Pro is a bit high.
  • A way for free users to save an address book.
  • The offline app isn't as robust as the web client.

For its compatibility, easiness, quick responses, user interface, storage capacity, files management and file listings. These are some of the reasons for giving higher ratings and Google Drive has become an integral part of my professional life. We use this software on daily basis and most of the time saving lot of time.

It's easy enough to use for computer users of all ages and skill levels. I am an advanced user, and I think the hardest part might be showing someone how to download and set up the app on their device if they weren't too familiar with computers, but overall it is very easy to understand.

Overall, WeTransfer is a very easy program to use. There is not much training needed on it, and all the users at my company are self taught. You only need a few minutes of playing around with the program to understand how to use it and get the most out of it

The documents load fairly quickly and also update in real time, especially given the fact that multiple people can be using it at once. The "Offline" feature works great to allow the user to make edits and access the document without access to the internet, and then sync changes later once they're back.

WeTransfer is extremely reliable 99% of the time. There has been twice in 4 years that their service was unavailable due to server outage for several hours.

It takes a few days for customer support to get back to you. Although, I have not had to use support too often. Once you get an email back, they are very thorough and work hard to fix the problem quickly. It is a really great resource and a great way to get the help you need if you're stuck. A phone call also works quickly but you have to call during specific times.

I've only reached out to WeTransfer support once, but they were prompt, courteous, and answered my question. I assume that future interactions would be the same, I'm looking forward to being a long term customer.

It's an extremely easy software to implement, once you sign up for a google account you automatically have access to google drive with a set amount of storage space. The business or Google Suite accounts have more storage space than a regular free account, but setting up and accessing google drive is very easy in both cases

Alternatives Considered

Google Drive

I used Excel but I find Google is much more convenient in terms of storing documents and sharing them. Microsoft Excel and Word documents have a similar feature like Google Docs and Sheets, but some Microsoft products don't have free access like Google Drive.

WeTransfer

We actually use both other platforms because we may be required to by our clients or vendors. I find We Transfer easier to use especially remotely - quicker to upload and send.

Return on Investment

Google Drive

  • For Google Drive for corporate use, it is easy to scale up or down based on number of users joining or leaving our organisation.
  • For Google Drive for personal use, it is always good to have it free; however it does not reward long term users with additional storage space like Microsoft does.
  • Cost of using it for corporate use is not too expensive compared to buying on-site file servers and storage servers.
  • Easy for our staff to set up and use.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

WeTransfer

  • I haven't paid for this software personally, so I'm not sure, but $12/month is very reasonable if you are constantly sharing files.
  • WeTransfer is fairly professional, so in my opinion, links sent to clients look more professional than using a link from Google Drive or Dropbox.
