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.

Worksection

I can prescribe Worksection for computerized offices, for organizations that consider the season of their representatives and who pitch time to their clients

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

Worksection

  • I like adaptable assignments and subtasks, extended security for errands and remarks (since we are working with our customers inside Worksection) and inherent clock with hourly rates.
  • Worksection encourages us to break down complex undertaking into assignments and subtasks, set due dates and control time spent.
  • We additionally share reports from Worksection to our customers, it encourages us to assemble straightforward relations with our customers. What's more, we figure pay for our representative in view of these reports.

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

Worksection

  • Issues with composing editorial - must reload page to write
  • Old style design
  • Unfortunately there is no work area customer, it would be exceptionally valuable. Continually fixing to the Internet, extremely awkward when it isn't. I have this happens all the time. I'm sitting tight for new forms and I trust that I won't be disillusioned.

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.

Worksection

I like flexible tasks and subtasks, expanded privacy for tasks & comments (because we are working with our clients inside Worksection) and built-in timer with hourly rates.Worksection helps us to decompose complex project into tasks and subtasks, set deadlines and control time spent.

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.

Worksection

  • With this application, we have essentially enhanced the nature of our work, because everything is organized and reasonable. It is exceptionally advantageous that we can interface the customer to Worksection, which streamlines activities.
  • Incredible cost. The greatest arrangement of 250 GB and a boundless number of "ventures", "organizations" and "individuals" on the record, makes this program the most beneficial - now it is $120 every month, considering the markdown when paying yearly. This is finished opportunity and trustworthiness - lead somewhere around 10 distinct organizations and 1000 individuals.
