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.

You have to come in without bias and looking forward to embracing a new program. That sounds a bit biased myself, yes, but this program would have been perfect for the organization I consulted with. Absolutely perfect. But out of twelve individuals, only one had an open mind and wanted to explore the program. The remainder saw the program and said "Oh, it's like Excel, I'll just use that instead..." because they knew Excel. ProjectLibre is FUNCTION-centric, not pretty for the sake of being pretty. Once you get into it, you will fall in and love it. If you know marketing automation software, you will know how to use this program. I highly recommend it for anyone who wants to manage their time visually, in a program that is built to be what they need and not just something that looks good on a second monitor when the boss walks in.

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

ProjectLibre

  • It opens Microsoft Project files, therefore making it somewhat unrestricted in use or sharing files from MS Project.
  • It has a simple and familiar user interface.

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

ProjectLibre

  • Translation of some words.
  • Interface is not fast and fluid.
  • Problems saving the file sometimes. The program closes.

There are a lot of discussions online about it, and a customer addition based manual. While that can lead to some confusion, I am not the kind of person who likes talking on the phone. So it is easier to go online with ProjectLibre!

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.

ProjectLibre

Microsoft Project has a great interface and features. However, the cost of ProjectLibre overshadows anything that Microsoft can provide. The cost to benefits that ProjectLibre provides along with their similar features to Microsoft makes ProjectLibre a leader in the project management software category.

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

ProjectLibre

  • No investment made, besides time, but definitely worthwhile in using it.
