Citrix ShareFile Helps Customers Accelerate the Move to the Mobile, Digital Office
New Capabilities in ShareFile Enable Customers to Streamline Document
Workflows, Increasing Productivity and Collaboration Across Teams and
SANTA CLARA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--
The benefits of becoming a digital office are well-documented, and
businesses have much to gain from adopting technology that streamlines
employees' workflows and routine processes, while maintaining high
levels of security and compliance. The modern workplace is experiencing
dramatic gains in productivity and efficiency, while also improving the
way teams and clients collaborate from anywhere, at any time, on any
device. Industry analyst firm IDC indicates that 80 percent of
businesses have processes that still rely on paper and that most
organizations are just beginning to transform their businesses with
document and information management leading the way. Yet, 72 percent of
businesses agree that improving document processes would increase
customer satisfaction and/or increase brand value1.
With these market drivers and the influence of the more than 80,000
business customers and 20 million business users, Citrix continues to
drive innovation in its leading file sync-and-sharing solution. These
include a smarter and simpler user experience, as well as a more
streamlined way to view and take concise action on files of all types,
including getting feedback and approvals
on documents, sharing DICOM medical images, viewing 3D architectural
renderings, and even requesting and tracking audit lists. ShareFile
customers are more productive, collaborative and secure, as they
transition to the workplace of the future by evolving their business
workflows and processes from paper to digital.
What's New in ShareFile
In today's business environment, there is an explosion of data and apps,
and an ever-growing need for collaboration across geographies. However,
there has been no systematic way to store, share, review or approve
documents that are critical to business functions and services until
ShareFile. ShareFile is built - from the ground up - for business,
giving customers a simpler way to collaborate with teams and clients
with built-in feedback and approval workflows.
Users can get feedback, request approvals and e-signatures - all
within ShareFile's web interface.
Track feedback and approvals in real time with the ability to set due
dates and view status at any time.

dashboard and interface.
Recently opened files are easily accessible.
Users can do more in less time with easy-to-find actions and a clean,
straightforward design that enhances productivity.
Quick access to tutorials and links are available upon log-in to guide
ShareFile provides a better, more convenient way to view every file with
its new content viewer.
Users see a clear view of 60+ file types without the need to wait for
downloads and have the ability to preview the most common file
formats, including PDFs, without having to leave the web browser.
Users can conveniently share files, and request feedback and approvals
through workflows - right from the viewer.
New and Enhanced Solutions for Industry-Specific Solutions
Many industries, including finance, insurance and real estate, have
specific workflow and compliance needs - including support for FINRA,
HIPAA and CFPB. ShareFile addresses these needs, and can be configured
in a way that streamlines many of the common, industry-specific use
cases - particularly in Accounting and Healthcare. The high level of
customization and industry knowledge that ShareFile provides enables
customers to have workflows and peace of mind that is tailored to their
ShareFile for medical imaging enables customers in healthcare-related
fields to reduce their need for CDs with its diagnostic-quality DICOM
viewer and storage that supports HIPAA compliance. Healthcare providers
and payers can now request, upload, view and share medical images in a
simple, cloud-based environment. For nearly a decade, CPAs using
ShareFile for Accounting have been able to easily exchange large
QuickBooks files, monthly statements, and tax returns. Thanks to the
most-recent improvements to ShareFile, CPAs can now create and track PBC
lists (Provided By Client Lists), and request e-signatures for IRS forms
8879s. The request list feature eliminates the painstaking need to rely
on email and spreadsheets, reducing complexity and error.
Terri McClure, Senior Analyst, Cloud Infrastructure and File Sharing,
"Business leaders recognize the need to embrace a modern, digital
workplace to drive greater efficiency in business processes. This means
taking a close look at their document and information management
workflows and embracing technologies to take the friction out of these
processes while keeping data secure. By using ShareFile's collaborative
workflow and security features, customers and their clients benefit from
more streamlined and structured processes, speeding time to complete
projects, deliver results, and increase customer satisfaction, all while
complying with stringent security requirements."
Byron Patrick, Managing Director, CPA Practice, Network Alliance
"Innovations in technology, like the Citrix ShareFile new approval
workflow and request list, just keep getting better. The approval
workflow capability simplifies the cumbersome process of collecting
source documents while keeping a CPA client's information safe, secure
and private. Firms I work with are more efficient when collaborating
with their clients, who appreciate the simplicity of the system."
Kevin Gardner, Operations Manager, US Framing International
"As far as time saved, the approval workflow capability helps out
tremendously. Instead of sending multiple emails back and forth and
tracking comments and changes, they can go and comment on every page of
the document in one go around. That saves us time in the approval
conversation. We probably had a three-day turn around for approvals
before, and with the approval workflow we've been able to cut a day out
of that process."
Samantha Rice, Firm Administrator, McMahan, Thomson & Associates, P.C.
"The approval workflow feature has helped us improve our communication
on projects that require more than one team member. It has eliminated
email chains and provided a centralized location for all feedback and
changes to documents."
Nate Spilker, Vice President ShareFile and Cloud Services, Citrix
"Customers of all sizes are looking for solutions that allow them to
work and collaborate seamlessly from anywhere, transforming their
businesses to be more efficient and mobile. Citrix is continuing to
drive innovation in ShareFile beyond file sharing and storage to address

interface and industry-specific solutions, ShareFile is helping its
customers to increase productivity and collaboration."
