Excellent! Everything is at your finger tips!

2018-06-25

This software increases productivity and communication in our company!!!

Pros

We use Google Drive to share files, documents, spreadsheets, photos, pretty much ANYTHING with other employees. It is wonderful to have everything at your fingertips and integrated with Gmail.

Cons

I sometimes wish there was a desktop app to upload files to your computer's local storage (like drop box, sharefile, etc)

The Best Option for Online Storage

2018-06-12

Provides easy access to my files in the cloud.

Pros

I use Drive for everything - business and personal. With the integrated Docs, Sheets, and Slides, it provides unparalleled convenience to getting work done quickly. I no longer need to use the Microsoft Office Suite and am loving the value Google provides.

Cons

I would like to see Drive adopt more security options similar to ShareFile, Dropbox, Box, etc.

Better than others

2019-04-04

Pros

Sharefile has great auditing features so you know who is accessing files, when, and how often. Sharing out folders and files is very simple as well.

Cons

Price is high considering alternatives such as Onedrive or Google Drive are included in their respective subscriptions.

One of the best sharing content out there for file hosting

2019-03-18

Pros

I can get a shareable link that is say not linked to my google drive. Thus a better for business shared format.

Cons

I wish the notifications for files were a little better. It is hard to tell when you receive the file.

I like the security, they could improve functionality

2018-09-17

Good so far, though I'm open to switching providers at this point. Cost is a bit high for the market.

Pros

It reflects well on my practice and appears more legitimate than something like Google Drive.

Cons

I think their functionality could be a bit more robust. I would really love to see an easy way to collect signatures from clients (without paying a ton extra), for example.

Pretty common tool across other cloud services

2019-02-16

Pros

I think ShareFile has the same capabilities that other cloud services offer (i.e. Google Drive, OneDrive, Dropbox, etc), which is great if you want diversity.

Cons

They need to make more unique services. A lot of other cloud services offer the same collaboration tools, so what makes them special?
