Send Large Files
The stress of working on deadline is unpleasant enough without the tools you’re using slowing you down. However, that’s exactly what many professionals experience when they rely on email as a collaboration tool and attempt to send large files to colleagues or business partners.
We’ve all been there, up against the wall and in a time crunch. All that’s needed is to send that document to the satellite office before it closes, but an email platform simply won’t cooperate. Messages bounce back or never go through at all, making it impossible to share mission-critical information.
Sometimes it may seem so, but it’s actually not impossible to share large files over the Internet. All a company or professional user has to do is sign up for YouSendIt’s cloud-based online storage and file sharing tool. YouSendIt enables users to send large files for free through the cloud quickly, easily and with the security that all companies now come to expect of collaboration tools.
The size limits placed on email attachments by popular clients make the platforms impossible to use when sharing large files. The limits were implemented with the performance of email in mind, but they really just make for more headaches than anything else.
Luckily, YouSendIt relieves the stress of these restrictions by allowing 50 megabytes of data to be sent at one time with a free account. Furthermore, files and folders can be zipped and sent through the cloud with just a few quick clicks of the mouse.
Need for speed
Have you ever sat in front of your computer screen and watched the task bar slowly fill up as a large file was added to a message as an attachment?
YouSendIt’s file sharing tools are fast and cut the time it takes to send and receive large files down to mere seconds. No longer do professionals have to sit around waiting for a file to upload or download, instead of focusing on what really matters: their work.
In addition to the speed at which information is shared, YouSendIt also gives end users a level of control over transmissions unlike anything they’ve before experienced. By overseeing downloads, tracking the status of files to be uploaded and downloaded and setting expiration dates on sent files, YouSendIt allows end users to fully customize the experience.
And robust security measures protect the information that is mission-critical to not only the project at hand, but the business as a whole.
Password protection allows you to limit the people who can and can’t open, download or even change documents you’ve sent. Implementing such measures at the file level means protection stays with the information no matter where it travels.
Return receipts give senders the peace of mind that comes with knowing information was sent to the correct recipients on time and that they were able to open and download it.
How to send large files
Old habits can be extremely difficult to break, especially for professionals who have been set in their ways of using email for much of the past 15 years or so. As a result, YouSendIt designed its file sharing tool to be easy to use and learn, requiring little in the way of new training for employees.
Part of that is making it possible to send large files regardless of platform or software being used. End users can choose to share files using the YouSendIt Express desktop application, plug-ins for Microsoft Outlook and Adobe Acrobat or even on the go, with the YouSendIt mobile application for Android and Apple devices.
