Close on the heels of the release of FileGenius version 5, Applied Answers recently revealed in a press release that the company’s cloud-based file transfer and sharing solution - FileGenius version 5 - is already being used by more than 60,000 professionals and organizations around the globe.
According to FileGenius, the Version 5 of FileGenius is the most significant upgrade, providing 25 major new features.
Developed by Applied Answers, Inc., FileGenius is a web-based, expertly hosted, secure file transfer, exchange, and management application. It enables businesses to copy their job or client/customer files to the site, so that they can be accessed on the web securely.
As a cloud-based secure file transfer and sharing solution, FileGenius requires all customers to validate their legitimate business or organizational status and does not allow storage, transfer, or sharing of potentially illicit media files, such as music, videos, eBooks or software - unless the customer can substantiate a legitimate use for these types of files.
Some of the key features offered by FileGenius include sharing any kind of file securely; sending large files up to 2GB in size; enhanced user interface; instant file access; compatibility with Windows and Mac OS X, as well as all major web browsers like Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, Netscape, iCab and others; scalable; unlimited private workspaces; 128/256-bit SSL encryption; virus filtering; and more.
Apart from enhancing the productivity, FileGenius’ securely hosted file transfer site also eliminates email, FTP, FedEx, and faxes. It requires only a web browser and Internet access to use, thereby eliminating the need for hardware, software, configuration or IT management.
Currently, FileGenius is being widely used in the fields of architecture, engineering, construction, accounting and financial services, printing, advertising, marketing communications, manufacturing, sales, municipalities, services, non-profit, and education.
The company is maintaining its long-time policy of charging a single flat fee, based on length of subscription term, versus the prevalent industry practice of charging for users, through-put, and number of transactions.
