How FTP Hosting and Online Storage can assist businesses in the Media, Design and Print sector.

With most kinds of design work you are often creating multiple versions of large artwork files whether they are layered files for internal use or flat images for proofing. As more and more communication now happens online, the need to transfer large files on a regular basis has improved dramatically.

Being able to transfer this large amount of data without the need for CDs, DVDs and snail-mail means project turnaround times can be vastly improved. Traditionally many design agencies have tried to use email for such transfers and as we all know, this is more than frustrating! You never can tell when an end-user's mailbox will fill up. I think we've all been there when you think your email is just about to get through and you get an 'undeliverable' notification back, what a waste of time!

Using our FTP Hosting and Online Data Storage packages, you can remove all these problems, streamline your workflow and improve project turnaround times.

  • Create a project or user 'area' on your remote storage using the web based admin panel and exchange large files with your clients.
  • Allow them to access them directly through the web browser, even if they don't have an FTP client. The simple web interface allows your customers to preview, download and upload files, all from a secure web panel.
  • Isolate each customer/project so that everyone's files are separate.
  • Avoid the 'large attachment problem' in both directions by allowing your customers to send you assets and then serve proofs and copies back to your clients, all in one place.
