Overall Satisfaction with Egnyte

Our organization currently utilizes Egnyte organization-wide. Prior to implementing Egnyte for our digital storage needs, we were very unorganized which really creating some challenges in getting things done quickly. Once we got our internal processes down, Egnyte was a huge win for us. Today, each department has organized "files" to place relevant content. For a project management standpoint, I can't even imagine doing my job effectively without Egnyte.
  • Ease of use- once things are clearly labeled Egnyte is simple to learn and use.
  • Pricing- In our case, Egnyte was very fairly priced.
  • Functionality- Egnyte is a no-frills, as advertised, option for all digital storage needs.
  • Egnyte may be overdue for a face-lift. The User Interface is a little dated. Not a deal breaker by any means, though.
  • Customer support- Fortunately, we haven't needed much help. I have heard from people at other businesses complain about their lack of support before.
  • It's rapidly sped up our internal processes. Everything is so much more organized after implementing Egnyte.
  • Overwhelmingly positive impact and ROI- nothing negative from that standpoint.
Egnyte's storage capacity was well beyond the capabilities of Dropbox at our budget. Plus, at the time (nearly five years ago) Dropbox was a little quirky when it came to uploading files. OneDrive was a good fit but it presented challenges when working with users that did not use outlook for email. That may have been since remedied, but we are too happy with Egnyte to find out.
Egnyte is the leader for no-frills digital storage needs as far as I am concerned. It's logically setup with ease of use seemingly built into their DNA. We use it for storing every file we need to keep- from documents to high-resolution graphics and photos. It is less appropriate to use when collaborating with volunteers outside of our organization. It's proved cumbersome when they don't have an internal email address.
