The scenario is all too familiar; the file for the latest design you’ve been working on for Mr. Client has drastically over-stepped the 25mb email limit. You're out of Dropbox space and you’ve got no choice but to send it another way: standing outside the office in the freezing cold, waiting for a courier to turn up and take your precious USB stick from A to B. And then if they have further changes following review? *sigh*
But what if there was another way? You’re far from alone in these struggles faced by marketing teams and creatives alike. Just imagine if there was a “middle-man” between you and the client that bypassed emails, and allowed you the space to set your ideas free! Workshare’s file sharing solutions could be that light at the end of the tunnel.
Set your ideas free...
We believe that file sharing should be simple, so we created a client extranet feature which allows you to share documents externally whilst remaining in control. Upload all of your files and send them via email with a link to the file in your extranet. Receive feedback within minutes, with tailored access for you and your clients. Workshare puts an end to your difficulties sending large files and stops the tiresome manual sharing process in its tracks.
So that’s your logistical issue sorted, but have you thought of the other ways to improve your service? The client extranet is customizable, so you can brand your space to look like your company. This further reinforces your image so clients feel confident that they’re in the right place. Here, clients can become a part of the process as they are able to post feedback directly to what you’re working on (whether it be a proposal, design or other project) via comments or approve a draft in a single click.
Another problem you might face is versioning dissonance, a.k.a. the tedious task of having to trawl back through pages and pages of emails to find the latest draft of a document. Enlisting software to help you could save you lots of time usually spent buried in your inbox. What’s more, you can stay fully mobile; uploading your files to Workshare means you can access them from anywhere in the world!
