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.

Redmine

Redmine is a perfect solution for businesses that are looking for a FREE and open source solution for project management. It is great for teams that are managing numerous tasks or projects at one time. Redmine is easy to set up and is fairly self-explanatory for anyone who is semi tech-savvy.

Pros

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.

Redmine

  • The design and user-interface are a little outdated. It looks like a product that was designed ten years ago and doesn't have a polished look and feel like newer apps have.
  • It's not particularly designed to support agile-based project management methodologies such as Scrum.

Redmine is a great product to have in an organization. It's extremely flexible, costs much less to maintain than other alternatives, and as a tool, it is relatively fast to get experienced with. The primary advantages of working with Redmine are: flexible platform, API, open-source and highly configurable, stability.

Redmine is free, easy to use and it's everything you could want in a free project management program. The fact that it has wiki integration and that it can track on such a granular level is amazing. Assigning tasks to other users, such as our development team, is fantastic and ensures we are always up-to-date on where we are what - on what projects.

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.

Redmine

Basecamp was very busy and seemed more into the "wow" factor than into being an efficient tool. Redmine has none of the characters or kid-like appearance of Basecamp's model. I found Basecamp to be too cluttered in views and its interactions confusing, making it difficult to find where centrally kept information was.
Redmine has a straightforward no-nonsense default UI, though you can change it how you like of course. The views were designed for simplicity and thinking of the least amount of steps to get to one goal instead of trying to make a pleasing color palette that was overstimulating. I think Basecamp is more geared towards the "chat" aspect whereas Redmine is good for the larger overview of a project.

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

Redmine

  • Positive: Redmine's initial impact is minimal: in terms of Dollars-the cost of acquisition is the price you pay for Electricity, Internet bandwidth and hardware
  • Redmine's REAL cost is time and knowledge: You will need a Linux expert to implement Redmine.
  • Readmine's configuration is also Time intensive, and it's better to augment your current staff, or hire someone directly to implement your Redmine configuration changes.
