File Transfer vs. Document Sharing and Collaboration - The Answer is Clear

“Ahhh, the link has expired. Can you resend?!” Does this ring a bell?

Upload your document… Send an alert email… Download the doc or file… Do whatever you need to do… Then re-upload to send it back…

It’s a lot of work, and it's work you don’t need to do if you have a document-sharing and collaboration platform. File Transfer solutions are an old answer to an old problem.

  • Need to share links to docs, files, or folders that don’t expire? That’s kinda the core of what we do.
