If we talk to new customers, it seems still a common problem for them to exchange data with their clients. FTP is a prominent solution most customers use today. As one digs deeper into this issue, the hurdles become obvious:
Employees complain about complex setups, and that they always need to involve IT to get permissions and to setup client accounts. Nearly everyone can tell a story about how long it took to get the system up and running. People that are more aware of the technology are seriously concerned about security.
It does not get any better on the client site, they typically receive an FTP server address, a password, and login information. Very often, clients distribute the login to other involved people. Additional effort is necessary to install an FTP client and restrictive Firewalls can even prohibit accessing the server.
To summarize, it is a pain for your employees to setup an FTP solution, and it is also a pain for your customers to access it. On top, it is not secure at all: Often documents are distributed unencrypted, you are not able to see who updated a document, you cannot spot changes quickly, and you cannot exclude someone, who once received the login password without changing it for everyone else as well.
