  • Fast transfer of internal files means that more space available at production for more features
  • Internal logs are now easier to transfer and faster to batch process, giving the ability to draw out conclusions and work on improvements faster
  • Good metrics by aspera lets report creation of any transfer easy and transparent. Was previously a tiresome thing to do

  • Aspera has changed the way we do business. We are now able to share huge file sets electronically, saving on external drives, shipping costs, time, and effort.
  • Our industry is very slow to commit to electronic alternatives to physical media. In less than three years, the positive results of using this service have caused over 70% of our user base to fully commit to electronic delivery, with the number of physical fulfillments quickly being driven toward zero.
  • Transfers within our own company, which formerly relied solely on FTP/HTTP transfer drives that would take days now take minutes with Aspera. Our software team relies on the speed and accuracy of the transfers.

  • Less time wasted on calls to the Helpdesk to check if the file made it to the sender. The system ensures that any file uploaded successfully is shown in the dashboard.
  • Dependability on the system ensures credibility with the clients and customers that their work will be delivered on time and with the great quality intact.
