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.

This is a great project management tool for teams who work across multiple locations. I could even see this as being a great tool for small or large businesses that operate within one property. It is nice to keep everyone one the same page with one tracking software. At this time I cannot think of any scenarios it would not be appropriate for, it is very versatile

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

ProProfs Project

  • I needed a project management software that had client access, ability to comment, percent-complete tracking, and email integration.
  • The mobile app is a big part of what has improved in the last year and why I have decided to stick with it ultimately. Many others I've decided do not have apps on the marketplace, which is a big hindrance, in my opinion.
  • Invoicing and tracking expenses is a huge plus.
  • White Labeling - I can customize the system with my own logo

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.

ProProfs Project

  • For what we use it for, we do not have any suggestions for improvement, it has always been a great tool and we have experienced no issues with it.

I personally have not had to contact ProProfs Project Customer Support. I know that our media / marketing manager has used this tool for a while and is very comfortable with it. He has never expressed any issues or frustrations that I know of. The product is simple and easy to use and does not seem to require much support.

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.

ProProfs Project

I think Project Bubble is way more streamlined than the others mentioned, as well as way more cost-effective! It is simple enough for my clients to access and keep track of their status, without having to explain or train them in the process. For value of money, customer support, and ease of use, I give it my highest recommendation.

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.

ProProfs Project

  • Client communication
  • Contractor accountability
  • Time tracking and resource management
