Overall Satisfaction with Citrix ShareFile

Citrix ShareFile is has been an incredible asset to our marketing department. We needed to find a better way to work with our remote partners without having to worry about security. Citrix offers secure file sharing and it allows numerous members and contractors to collaborate on projects without having to worry about being in the same room! The customized workflows keep us organized but for us, the biggest win is the ability to collaborate on content through the Mircosoft Outlook integration.
  • Ability to collaborate on content with remote members
  • Share large files securely and quickly
  • Access to our library of branding assets from anywhere - even mobile!
  • Some hang-ups with large files only being accessible in view-mode
  • Mobile viewing can be slow as files have to download first to be viewed
  • Search features good be better as you are limited to filtering options
  • Increased Collaboration
  • Seamless Integration with Email
  • Increased productivity due to workflow enchantments
Dropbox and Box are both great file-sharing services as well but offer minimal integration features for the programs. The UI for both is simpler but the workflow features of Citrix make it a win for us as it gives us the ability to automate many things we used to manually do, such as having to copy accounting on all billing relating emails or ensuring our remote copywriter is informed of the new project we launched.
We have experienced some hangups that happen when viewing mobility and even sometimes via desktop. It depends on the file size and the type of file but does not happen often and when it does it is typically creative related. We barely pull reports so have no issues there. The integration features with Outlook is extremely easy and makes references files super easy.
Citrix ShareFile allows us to store all of our important documents in a secure, easy to access location that makes for collaborating with a remote workforce a breeze. The automated workflow features help to increase productivity and the integration with Outlook makes sharing even easier! Citrix ShareFile is super easy to use and doesn't take long to teach to newcomers. A win in our book!
Citrix ShareFile is great for companies that have a lot of documents and need to collaborate with multiple departments/members with ease. The ability to seamlessly exchange files among multiple devices makes it super easy when you are on the go and still need to take care of business. Workflow features make it easy to integrate into Outlook and quickly reference shared resources.

Evaluating Citrix ShareFile and Competitors

Yes - We replaced Dropbox with Citrix. Our remote staff was not happy with the Dropbox sync features, the management of files, and the system was simply not as secure as Citrix. We made the switch based on their input and our need to increase collaboration and clean up our file management system.
  • Product Features
  • Product Usability
The features and usability were neck-in-neck for our most important factors in making the decision. As stated prior, our staff was unhappy with our current system and due to that not using it to their best ability. Citrix offers a cleaner interface which increases usability and the integration and workflow automation features make it easy for staff to collaborate on projects.
If we have to do it again, I don't think we would change anything. We took into account the needs and wants of our staff and selected a program that could meet or exceed them.
