Flexible, stable, easy to use and a great value.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Cost and time savings. Greater stability. Customer satisfaction (far fewer errors).

Pros

The stability and ease of use and setup have been lifesavers for us. We have been able to hand off almost all of our MFT tasks to our operations group, rather than taking programming resources for those functions. We also have seen a drastic improvement in the number of transmission errors or dropped connections. We have a third-party monitoring company that is constantly hitting our GoAnywhere site...

Cons

I am honestly scratching my head to come up with what I like least about GoAnywhere. The only thing I can think of is that it might be nice to have some more advanced pre-defined sample scripts included in the installation. There were some good basic samples, but something more complicated might have helped us in the early going.

Vendor response

What a compliment, Mark! Thank you for such a detailed review. We appreciate the feedback about including additional sample scripts and will take it into consideration for a future release.

Excellent product - Value for Money

Reviewed 4 years ago

We have been able to centralize all our MFT scripts which were scattered in a lot of different servers and applications. When a vendor (Say a bank) changes their SSH keys or some maintenance we would not know until something breaks in one of our systems and had multiple teams supporting them. Some of these are legacy applications and there is no one to support as well. But with GoAnywhere we moved all these scripts (MFT use-cases) and Resources (sFTP, FTP, HTTP(s), REST, etc) configured in one single place and maintenance/support has become easy. Our business teams have seen the value as the effort it takes to orchestrate a use-case is less than a week (1-2 days usually). Great product and very easy to use.

Pros

Easy to create resources (sFTP, FTP, REST, HTTP, FTPs, etc) and test them with out testing the actual scripts. Very easy to use and they have good documentation which is easy to follow. Its very intuitive. Product works as advertised. We were able to centralize all MFT scripts. Encryption/Decryption works excellent, job monitoring and Job Scheduling is easy. Integrates with AD. I find the product to be good value for money and easy to support as well. Does not take much effort to get trained as well.

Cons

After using the product for 6+ years, nothing comes to mind that I did not like about this product.

Excellent powerful tool steps up for any task. Great support, great features, reasonable price.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Automates reliably many difficult things.

Pros

We use this tool to deliver thousands of media files to a pool of 5000 destinations each day. The files absolutely have to be there, or you have to know and escalate. This tool never goes down, never fails to record in the database every event so problems are solved immediately. Replaces serv-u, and a host of utility tools. With so many destinations, none of which is in our control, we need...

Cons

Clustering and failover is not free. Slightly harder to customize a webclients experience without hitting the css. Quirks in variables ${ var } . Java based. Occasionally need to get into projects. Need to drop into GACMD for oddball user creation.

GoAnywhere gave us everything we needed at the lowest price point of all MFT vendors we evaluated

Reviewed 5 years ago

GoAnywhere gave us everything we needed at the lowest price point of all MFT vendors we evaluated. Our development team had very specific demands for their MFT needs, some of which completely ruled out some vendors' products, and GoAnywhere MFT was able to provide solutions to all of them. We love how modular the project building process is, and how extensible the building blocks are. Technical Support is stellar, product upgrades are easy to perform, and the interface is easy to use. I highly recommend GoAnywhere MFT to anyone who needs a solution for FTP/FTPS/SFTP/HTTPS file transfers.

Pros

user I nterface, technician support, project building features, modular project construction

Cons

i hope that a future version of the GoAnywhere MFT product is not dependent upon Java.

Vendor response

The bulk of GoAnywhere is written in Java to allow it to run on virtually any platform including Windows, Linux, UNIX, IBM I and other systems without having different code bases for each platform. This allows us to rapidly add new capabilities to GoAnywhere that can be used for all platforms without redundant testing. We can also use proven 3rd party libraries to expedite development of the product. Some of our competitors wrote their products in proprietary languages and now their products have fallen behind in features/capabilities. Thanks so much for your feedback!

Outstanding in every aspect. Much better than the competition.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Centralized key and certificate management provides more than we'd get from any other system we looked at purchasing. WE ARE IN CHARGE PROACTIVELY OF THEM. The ability to offer other parts of the organization a professional and secure file transport mechanism as a service. We have integrated several custom in-house written processes to do these things into one environment; so its all about bringing together these features under one umbrella.

Pros

Integration and flexibility. It just works for us with inimal configuration, day after day. We could run it in a5x9's or 2x9's kind of configuration as we need too. That flexibility is just terrific. Did I also say it's really cost-effective too?

Cons

Why is the folder structure that is in place for Projects NOT also used for Monitors and Schedulers? This is a serious feature that would be so much more rational. Also need some way to document where a monitor/scheduler calls a project/where a resource is used etc. Some kind of "auto-documentation" feature (from the programmer perspective), not just "reports"...

Vendor response

Thanks for your feedback. We will pass your comments onto the R&D team and consider this request for a future release.

Love it - Awesome suite of tools for developing and managing automated tasks

Reviewed 5 years ago

Time savings, Accuracy increase , efficiency increase.

Pros

GoAnywhere is intuitive and Dynamic. The way it is set up kind of like a 'toolbox' really simplifies automating complicated tasks and procedures. I always look forward to the new versions as Linoma seems to really be able to prioritize what additions would be useful for their customers and provide immediate benefits - it is obvious that they truly listen and consider any feedback received. The biggest Pro that I can provide is that the software is constantly evolving and getting better - that is a rarity with software like this and should be commended! Thanks for taking pride in your product and providing it at reasonable cost.

Cons

Although not really a con, I do think that the addition of 'canned' projects that users could reference when developing a process would be very helpful.

Vendor response

You may want to look into using templates when creating new projects. A template is like a 'canned' project which you can use as a great starting point. We are always looking for ideas for new templates, so please let your GoAnywhere account manager or support team know of any enhancement requests.

Rock Solid, Affordable Automation & MFT Software

Reviewed 5 years ago

Reduced labor cost on tedious tasks, automation of countless tasks, reduction in human error.

Pros

This program lets us do everything. We have a file and web portal that scans files for accuracy and delivers success or error reports. We have countless SQL reports and automation jobs running in the background. We have saved hundreds of hours of tedious labor hours, saving money and allowing our employees to focus on less repetitive tasks. It's also extremely affordable and pays for itself in just a few months if you use it correctly and don't drag your feet. Setup is also super easy and they offer training to get you started. It's a no-brainer. If you have the need to do bulk operations on a repetitive basis, you need to use GoAnywhere. Support is also very helpful!

Perfect for Our Needs

Reviewed 5 years ago

Our small business must exchange data with multiple government agencies and private organizations. Each has their own format, security requirements, and timing restrictions. GoAnywhere MFT provides maximum flexibility and precise control for each. It can be programmed, tested, and implemented quickly and easily and is very cost-effective.

Pros

Very easy to customize and modify. Good error detection and reporting.

Cons

"Help" system and manual not as easy to use and understand as it might be.

Vendor response

Thanks for your feedback. Although there are over 1200 pages of documentation with lots of step-by-step instructions, we are always looking for ways to improve our manuals. We also have video tutorials that you may want to check out at https://www.goanywhere.com/tutorials/gamft. If you have specific suggestions for our documentation, please contact support to raise an enhancement request.

We have been using GA for over 10 years and it addresses all of our secure transfer needs and more.

Reviewed 4 years ago

We were able to rapidly build sophisticated file transfers that requires us to manipulate data into many different file formats with our many trading partners at a very low cost.

Pros

The tool is web-based which allows us to use it from any workstation (no PC client - yeah!) and it handles all the complexities of secure file transfers and file manipulations in various formats with ease that frees our time to focus on rapidly delivering business solutions v. wasting time on manually coding.

Cons

We would like to see anti-virus software and the ability to either zip or unzip files since we expanded the use of GA to handle document imaging.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Avoided hiring expensive IT consultants and rapid deployment of need projects.

Pros

Web-based and it solved the complexities for secure file transfers and data manipulation. We lacked the in-house skills to do this in-house and this tool was extremely easy to learn and implement.

Cons

I would like to see more open-forum discussions for ideas to implement other creative ways to use GA MFT. For instance, we use GA to build our own document imaging solution, but there may be other uses others have done that we are not considering,

Thanks for the great review and feedback, Joe! We look forward to sharing creative and common use cases in the near future.

The capabilities of GoAnywhere are great. File transfers are simpler and easier to manage.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Maintenance and creation of file transfers is much more simpler.

Pros

GUI is clean, Scripts can be shared and duplicated freely. User access to pull files and put files is simple.

Cons

Some options are extra that should be included or cheaper. Rename of files not so intuitive. Maintenance of directories need to be considered, done manually or with scripts, not automatic option.

We are always looking for ways to make GoAnywhere more intuitive and easy to use, so thank you for your suggestions! We passed your comments onto our R&D team. If you ever have specific enhancement requests in the future, feel free to contact your GoAnywhere account rep or our support team.

Really good value for money.

Reviewed 5 years ago

We are using goanywhere to provide our clients an access point. It is really help full tool. The best part is the ease of use. we have used Axway in the past but it was all over the place and was not that ease to use. GoAnywhere has provided a platform not just for our extranet users/customers but also internet based customers for file transfer. REALLY good product, however would like few more enterprise specific features. such as ability for non-repudiation, push data/files into DB as bolbs/clobs. Apart from that the product suite is really good.

Pros

ease of use value for money

Cons

not enterprise ready lacks some enterprise essential features

Vendor response

Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear that you do not feel that GoAnywhere is enterprise ready. It is actually used to move hundreds of thousands of files a day for some of our larger deployments without issues. There are a few development cases we have open for future release consideration that Vocalink is tagged on (for example, blob/clob support). We will notify you if/when they become available. If you have additional suggestions, please contact support to submit an enhancement request.

Overall experience has been very positive, virtually pain free.

Reviewed 5 years ago
Pros

Ease of use and flexibility, found the interface very straight forward and intuitive, quickly got up to speed. We were able to very quickly retire several file transfer solutions which were both rigid and plagued with errors. Being able to tie this into our database server executing jobs, stored procs, pulling and pushing data has been of enormous value.

Cons

Needing a separate license for development. My cardinal rule is never develop or test in production and abhor needing a separate license.

Vendor response

Thanks for the great review, Lawrence. We appreciate you sharing your feedback regarding the separate license for testing. We've shared your feedback with the R&D team.

Great way to automate processes

Reviewed 4 years ago
Pros

We use GoAnywhere to deliver thousands of files to hundreds of locations, both onsite as well as offsite, every day. GoAnywhere never fails on its own, but if something in the process does fail, it records the steps, so you know exactly where to go to fix it. Re-running a job is a simple click. This has been such a time saver. GoAnywhere allows you to seamlessly create, send, pickup, or sync files and automate the process. The level of customization is unmatched for the price.

Cons

Creating more complicated jobs can be difficult. But that's more on me than them. I was just kind of thrown into GoAnywhere, and while figuring out the majority of the features and functionality were simple enough, some of the more complicated tasks took a lot longer to figure out. If I had some official training or documentation, I don't think that would have been an issue.
