Why consumer-grade file sync and share is no good for your customers

Find me on:

Sure, Google Drive, iCloud, or Dropbox are great sync and share solutions. Honestly, I use all three to store and share my personal files, photos, and music. They’re free, easy, and intuitive. But, for business? No way.

There are several reasons that any old consumer solution won’t cut it for businesses, large or small. From an IT perspective, running a workforce on a consumer-grade solution can be a major headache. Security and compliance concerns, access controls, and file ownership are just a few of the reasons I say this. Have you ever tried to regain control over business files that were created and “owned” by an employee who is no longer with your company? It’s no easy feat.Intronis ECHOshare File Sync and Share Solution

Business –grade file sync and share solutions are the answer

Later this week, Intronis is hosting a webinar on this topic, and we invite you to attend. During the webinar, we’ll discuss how business-grade file sync and share platforms enable IT solution providers to more easily manage and mitigate security risks, and provide their customers with easy-to-use advanced collaboration features, whether they’re working from mobile devices, laptops, or desktops.

Three important ways business-grade file sync and share helps IT service providers:

  1. You can manage files from a single dashboard, reviewing all data, devices, and users at a glance
  2. Boost your customer’s mobile productivity by enabling them to create, share, view, and edit  content directly from any device, including smartphones and tablets
  3. It drives higher revenue!

How does ECHOshare stack up?

This fall, we introduced ECHOshare, Intronis’ business-grade file sync and share solution. This has created new business opportunities for many of our channel partners by allowing them to upsell, enhance their service bundles, and, most importantly, to serve a substantial need for their customers.

The file sync and share marketplace is crowded, but there are some distinct areas where ECHOshare sets itself apart. A few of these include:

  • Integrated email/SMS notifications
  • Ability to upload via email
  • Mobile sync
  • Remote computer access
  • No file size limitation
  • HIPAA compliance
  • Geo-redundant datacenters with RAID6 mirrored backup

These are just a handful of the features that enable you to drive value for your SMB customers. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to learn more.
