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.

I know it works well for IT but not sure how it would work for construction. I think construction has a different set of needs.

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

WorkOtter PPM

  • Users find it easy to use which is important if you have a large number of users who don't have time for a lot of training or when new hires come on-board.
  • WorkOtter has a lot of advanced features that we don't use but when we do need one, it is nice to know the feature is waiting for us. We have used several of these features for special projects.
  • It does a good job with resource management.

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

WorkOtter PPM

  • Nothing significant. Maybe could be faster at times but I'm not sure if that is our own internet connection.

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.

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

WorkOtter PPM

  • I think it has really helped us make sure we are using resources effectively but I think it is hard to prove. Although we don't have hard ROI numbers, I believe the general feeling is that you really need a good PPM tool or will waste a lot of time and money.
  • It helps with communication since we have a standard process.
