Vector Solutions improves client engagement with Zoho WorkDrive.

"We were using OneDrive. It was hard or impossible to share files internally, let alone with our clients. We also have a number of clients who were on Dropbox and now have migrated to WorkDrive"

Challenges faced

Client management needs to be meticulous in any service-oriented firm, and it's even more essential when it comes to the advertising industry. From constant communication to real-time collaboration, client engagement at every stage of the project is important.

Vector Solutions found it a challenge to manage their client files and coordinate not just externally but internally as well. Their data was spread across systems, which affected both collaboration and information security.

"Keeping all our client’s documents coordinated internally and with our clients was our major concern."

- Bob Sullivan

 

How WorkDrive helped

With WorkDrive, Vector was able to set up Team Folders for their clients. A Team Folder is like a container created for a purpose or a project. This enabled them to add members, assign role-based permissions, and collaborate on files without having to worry about information security. Any file added will be automatically available to everyone, and they will have access to the file based on the permission assigned to them. Team Folders helped them organize files efficiently, thereby enabling better project and client management.

And with WorkDrive's granular-level permission controls, they could share specific files and subfolders with anyone. This helped Vector constantly coordinate with their clients without giving them complete access to their document system.

"We have one domain that all our clients share, but use permissions to keep their data separate. We have folders set up in WorkDrive by client. The clients can only see their stuff, but we can see everything."

Zoho WorkDrive features that Vector loves the most

One of Bob's favourite features is WorkDrive's Team Folders, which we discussed earlier. Another of his favorite features is the Sync for Desktop app, which allows users to switch between working on the cloud and on their desktop. They can work on files offline and then sync them to the cloud when they go back online with a simple drag and drop.

Bob also loves the fact that WorkDrive offers a huge amount of shared storage space for his team. This means he won't have to worry about buying additional storage for every member in his team since WorkDrive simply accommodates them all.

"The ability to keep things separate at the root-folder level (set it and forget it). The Mac sync utility. The huge amount of storage space."

Three key areas where WorkDrive has impacted Vector's business

- Better client collaboration

- Access to the client files at the right time

- Less reliance on text and email to share files (which can then get lost)

Vector solutions have found their perfect document management solution with Zoho WorkDrive. It's now their secure and centralized storage for all their files, along with being their platform for collaboration both internally and externally.

"Zoho WorkDrive is a key tool in collaborating with our multiple clients all in one place. Our clients are able to securely upload files they need, and we are able to see all our clients files in one place."
