Nextcloud

While searching for tools to satisfy a quickly scaling online startup, we found Nextcloud is well suited for today's remote collaborative team. Nextcloud has just the right toolset for a collaborative workspace including video, chat, many file formats accepted, and intuitive user interface. Comparatively other popular tools like Trello were distracting with more features than functionality. Working with Nextcloud is much like having a workspace with all your content and tools available anywhere on any device, without the ads, distractions, and irrelevant functionality. We will continue to utilize Nextcloud as a remote workspace for evolving and scaling teams.

SmartVault

SmartVault sends out a cover letter with the tax returns that includes a link for them to download their tax returns, avoiding the insecurity of an email attachment. It does not include a statement retrieval feature but does work very nicely with a third-party app called FileThis. The majority of the users in the office have not been able to install the Outlook plug-in due to "a certificate error." In five years, SmartVault has not addressed this issue.

Pros

Nextcloud

  • Very intuitive interface.
  • Superb synchronization agent.
  • Integration with AD/LDAP, external file sources, and other tools is top-notch.
  • Wide variety of "apps" (plugins).

  • Transmission of tax returns to client.

Cons

Nextcloud

  • Slow in comparison to other solutions
  • May be complex for the start since there are lots of apps and features
  • May be not focusing on core topics

SmartVault

  • They have cut back on support as have many SaaS companies recently.
  • The documentation can sometimes be a little difficult to follow.

I never needed support as everything always worked fine. The documentation on Nextcloud website is extensive and clear. The community is very active on the forum and should support you if you don't already find what you are looking for.

Reaching someone is more difficult than it should be. Also, they don't take possession of known issues always suggesting it is a local PC issue in initial conversations. That, of course, can be frustrating for the end-user.

Alternatives Considered

Nextcloud

Nextcloud stacks up pretty well against Mattermost and ownCloud. I really appreciate the fact that Nextcloud seems to integrate with other products pretty seamlessly and allows for extensibility that our product team can extend and improve functionality without a tremendous ramp-up time. We once used ownCloud in previous years, but they went the wrong way, and have found Nextcloud to be the right direction over time.

SmartVault

Our due diligence on this application was a bit week. We read the reviews on its closet competition (Sharefile) but did not actually enter into a trial with them. We would definitely suggest that potential subscribers do so.

Return on Investment

Nextcloud

  • Reduced costs: Cheaper than hosted alternatives if you need a lot of space.
  • Professional impression on partners and clients (branding, security).
Joost Mulder | TrustRadius Reviewer

SmartVault

  • Expensive product but the ROI is still excellent.
  • Can't see how any accounting firm could get by without it.
