We were supporting an FTP site so that we could provide documents to our customers and collaborate on internal documents.


The cost of supporting a FTP site was very expensive. We had to constantly change the passcode so that unauthorized personnel could not peruse the site. Once we gave a customer the passcode, there was nothing that stopped them from viewing or downloading other documents on the site making document security virtually impossible. It was cumbersome for employees to access the site and utilize collaborative documents.


SmartBox allows us to only provide the documents or software that our customers request. We are able to send secure or unsecure documents, as necessary, to customers and company personnel. This feature has allowed us to expand our document offerings and to limit their distribution. Additionally, we’ve found mobility a true time-saver with the access of information by our customers on any device, anywhere providing a value-added benefit that was impossible on our FTP site. “SmartBox has made document or software transfers to our customers easy, efficient & secure,“ says Lead Technician Mike Chenault. With the built-in UCC panel, communicating and collaborating are easier and more efficient – no more wasted time on emailing files back and forth waiting to make time-sensitive changes to customer quotes, contracts and more. SmartBox has saved our company money and increased the productivity of personnel.
