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.

Plutio

Plutio is great for the individual who is constantly on the go, managing a wealth of online information and projects. I can see those who work in education, such as administration, or technology coaches/teacher coaches using a platform like this to stay organized. Freelance or consultants would also benefit as it can manage your digital self.

Pros

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

Plutio

  • Task management is excellent. It can be broken down into so many levels and makes it easy to keep track of what needs to be done.
  • The ability to customize your method of using it is key. Setting it up to both look and work in a way that fits your company and employees is very important and Plutio does this very well.

Cons

OpenText Hightail

  • I wish the screen would auto refresh faster, but that could be an issue with our bandwidth or IT pipeline and not the product.
  • I'd like a quicker way to get people up to speed than giving them a link to watch a multitude of videos and tutorials.
Richard Peterson | TrustRadius Reviewer

Plutio

  • Small issue, but when you open a task in order to close it you have to click the X icon, instead of just clicking in the background to close it.

The GUI is not always so intuitive for non IT people, like some customers. The GUI is still being developed constantly. Leo is very committed to taking this platform forward and making it more and more professional

Interacted directly with the CEO after we signed up, he responded to our questions and built a lot of confidence in the product. Afterwards, we recommended some improvements to the calendar and task list, and they implemented them.

Alternatives Considered

OpenText Hightail

We looked at Dropbox because it's very well known in the industry and widely used. We didn't use it for a couple of reasons. First, our server security presented too many challenges and our IT director nixed the idea. Secondly, a lot of people used DropBox for personal use and we thought it could be confusing to have to navigate between the two choices. Hightail offers a single sign-in that can be shared amongst users so there is never a conflict between personal and professional use.

Plutio

Plutio is much more robust than Trello. If you are looking for a full suite of tools to help you stay organized Plutio is the best option. Trello is simple and a great Kanban board tool, however, you can organize Plutio to fit your specific project and preferred workflow. Then you add the other tools, like invoicing, proposals, time tracking, and communication, and you really have a full suite to complement your workflow.

Return on Investment

OpenText Hightail

  • Team members can view and give feedback on videos, which is very useful.
  • The storage really can't be overstated. It's great.
  • It's generally pretty affordable for how much you can host on their server.
Sarah Bandy | TrustRadius Reviewer

Plutio

  • Plutio enabled me to reduce cost by integration emails, invoices, and contracts in one spot. Possibly also project management, but I didn't use it long enough to need that function.
