In today’s modern multimedia workspace, we frequently handle large amounts of information among clients, providers, reviewers, and other parties involved in a project. In the past, when workloads were immense, files were sent using traditional mail, often referred to as snail mail due to its slow delivery speed.
Now technology has rapidly evolved and has strengthened email as the go-to method for file sharing. However, while email is a powerful tool, there are still many limitations to the amount of data that can be shared, and sharing large files through email can still be time-consuming and cumbersome.
Other alternatives for file sharing
When it comes to file sharing, there are some alternatives that we’ve encountered and used, such as the “drives” that come with organizational email account packages. While these alternatives work right away, since they’re included in the email service (though a previous account creation is implied), they have limits on the uploads and additional caveats in the form of sharing permissions with external providers. So, while they are useful for storage purposes, the time saved searching for a file-sharing host ends up being wasted while handling the sharing permissions.
Another tried and true alternative is using an FTP server. These servers are designed exclusively for file sharing and have been tested in various functions across the web. However, these servers typically need to be set up by a local IT team or someone with technical knowledge, and each transaction with a different provider or client requires a separate connection set up beforehand. Additionally, there’s the risk of possible disconnects while on the FTP connection, which can lead to losing progress on the file sharing.
So after 20 years of sending files on a day to day basis, at Prime Group, we strongly recommend a different approach for our projects.
