Opportunities this month

Globalscape EFT needs proper management and maintenance to stay efficient and secure. Most users don’t have the time or expertise, so it’s a great opportunity for you to sell them a managed service wrap. Pro2col provide a complete Globalscape EFT managed service with tiered options depending on requirements.

We also provide managed services across other products: HelpSystems GoAnywhere MFT, Progress MOVEit Automation and Transfer. Find out more…

Start the conversation

MessageWay

The MessageWay product has not been developed for several years, yet it is still part of many companies’ infrastructure. With so many specialist staff on furlough, or numbers of staff being reduced, it is important to have this conversation with your customers. Together we can scope their requirements and identify a more comprehensive solution from Progress’ or another vendor that would address their current and future requirements. Don’t forget, talking to your users about this also opens up other great discussions with them around AV, DLP and other areas of their infrastructure.

Vendor updates

SRT WebDrive

WebDrive NextGen is released on August 21. South River Technologies have chosen to move away from yearly upgrades in favour of a continuous improvement model. The new version includes: Improved interface, enhanced performance for Google Drive, OneDrive and SharePoint connectors, plus Mac users can now get the same functionality as WebDrive for Windows.

Sell professional services now

Many customers don’t apply product updates as they go along, and it’s not possible to support out of date software. If users are really behind on updates, they will need to follow an upgrade path. This can be complex. We’ll carry out the upgrade for them and you get healthy margins on any professional services we deliver for your users.

Pro2col news

$40,000 free file transfer training

And lastly, some really positive news from the file transfer experts. As COVID-19 took a hold on the world, we opened up our Certified File Transfer Professional (CFTP) training programme, completely free of charge. Almost 140 professionals worldwide signed up and completed the course, which equates to over $40,000 dollars of free training. Thanks to this offer, a huge group of employees have been able to continue developing their careers in lockdown, and are now better equipped to tackle the lingering economic challenges of COVID-19.

RPA and COVID-19

Before the global COVID-19 pandemic, businesses were using RPA as a key link in their digital transformation. Now though, it’s become much more tactical. They are implementing pragmatic, quick solutions to handle manual processes whilst staff are absent.

Some solutions deliver this better than others. Automate from HelpSystems clearly stands out from the competition in this respect.

Unrestricted bots  
Some other products restrict the type of tasks or number of tasks a bot can deliver. But that’s not the case with Automate. Bots are completely unrestricted.

No-code automation 
You don’t need programming skills to use Automate. The drag-and-drop functionality makes it easy to automate tasks. The form-based development means non-programmers can expand it beyond the out-of-box functionality with minimal understanding of coding concepts.

Flexible licensing 
Users can pay upfront or opt for a subscription, depending on what they anticipate their requirements to be.

MFT analytics

Did you know you there’s a web-based analytics platform that monitors multiple file transfer solutions from one dashboard? It makes compliance audits, SLA monitoring and troubleshooting so much easier.

Users get visibility of their entire file transfer infrastructure. Plus they can set up different departments – like HR or finance – to monitor their own transfers. This reduces the reliance on IT, saving support time and costs.

The MFT analytics solution we recommend is the Business Activity Monitor (BAM). It’s a great upsell opportunity for your customers using HelpSystems GoAnywhere, Globalscape EFT, Progress MOVEit or IBM Sterling, or a combination.

Benefits of BAM include:

  • Real-time visibility in one place
  • Streamlined file transfer monitoring infrastructure
  • Simplified and reliable SLA management
  • Faster problem detection and resolution
  • Reduced support time and cost
  • Self-service capabilities to end users

We have on-demand webinars demonstrating BAM in use with Globalscape EFT, Progress MOVEit and HelpSystems GoAnywhere MFT. Please email me if you would like access to these.

You can also get in touch to discuss a customer requirement or arrange a quote.

Vendor updates

  1. HelpSystems release GoAnywhere MFT 6.5 this week. We’ll share a summary of the main changes with our next update.
  2. Progress have just released MOVEit 2020 and our technical team are reviewing the updates.
