We've all had that moment where we try and attach a file to an email that's just too big to send:
Ever encounter a message like this?
Besides having size limitations, sending attachments via email are prone to being stripped out due to company email policies. This can be very frustrating when you are trying to send a 'compatible' file to us, or asking us to send a file again because you aren't receiving it.
You could mail us the files on a DVD or USB drive, but that adds days and shipping costs to the process and doesn't guarantee secure transfers nor a successful delivery!
At Cleveland, we've been working on an in-house solution for our clients. Our primary requirements—as always—have been security and convenience, without sacrificing one for the other. Our new, SSL-encrypted, Secure File Transfer tool can be found at upload.clevelanddesign.com, and provides easy uploading and downloading of files on our collaborative projects.
If you're familiar with our older FTP service, you'll recognize some features in the new setup. However, we've updated the user experience and interface to simplify and secure the transfer process, allowing us to share files together faster than ever. After logging in, you'll be presented with a simple, drag-and-drop upload box above a '
Begin Upload' button.
Another enhancement we've put together just for you is the ability to auto-notify any of us once the file(s) you've selected have been successfully uploaded to our server:
Before clicking that '
Begin Upload' button, just select one of us from the drop-down menu, and go ahead and upload your files. We'll receive an email as soon as the transfer is complete. Why waste time emailing us after the fact when you can have it done automatically?
When you need to download files, Cleveland will send you a unique, secure download link that instantly downloads the project files to your computer—without needing to remember usernames or passwords. Just click and you've got that latest Photoshop file of your fabulous new website design!
Cleveland is all about strategic, timely, and secure collaboration. Our new Secure Transfer Tool supports all of these things and we know you're going to love it. We are excited to share our tools with you and look forward to collaborating on your next great campaign.
PS: Look for the new 'Send Us a File' link at the bottom of our website and bookmark it for your next project with us!
