FileInvite and Dropbox go together like peanut butter and jelly. You request files through FileInvite and when they are returned, they sync into your desired folders named per your naming conventions. The two solutions are powerful and elegant, but both serve very different needs.

Dropbox is a secure file storage service used by millions of people around the world. Many people use Dropbox as a workaround to collect documents from clients by sending them a 'shared folder'. This can be considered a security risk in more security-conscious companies, which is why many opt for FileInvite's secure client portal. 

FileInvite provides a better experience for both parties when requesting documents. Some opt for Dropbox because it is a familiar brand for their clients. That's where FileInvite's custom branding options allow these clients to use their own branding to establish trust.

Both services have a digital signature function, Dropbox offers theirs via their sub-brand HelloSign, and FileInvite natively within the product.

Both services are incredibly security-concious, so there is little reason why you would choose one over the other on this basis.


Adobe Send & Track

Send & Track is part of Adobe Document Cloud, it is no longer a standalone service. With Send & Track, you can send files as links, track the files you send to specific individuals, and receive confirmations when others view your files. Send & Track lets you send large files without worrying about email clients rejecting them. You can use it for tracking what you've sent instead of using your email system or overnight delivery system.

FileInvite has many of the same capabilities, and more, thanks to its focus on improving the document collection experience for all parties involved in the process, not just the party requesting the information. Send & Track (Adobe Document Cloud) is a solution that is suitable for information sharing within an organization, but not so when requesting information from external parties. 

Both companies prioritize the security and privacy of your and your client's data. If you want to provide the best experience for you and your clients, FileInvite is the preferred solution. If you are only after requesting information internally, Adobe could be a suitable option.

Plans & Billing FileInvite


Can I change my plan later?

Of course, you can manage your plan in the app or contact sales. We recommend starting on the Pro or Multi plan in most cases, then upgrading if you require extra invites or functionality. However, the Pro plan is sufficient for most small businesses or teams.

What is so great about FileInvite?

FileInvite automates the collection of files, documents, and data in an easy-to-use platform. You can create an Invite (request) from your clients for any information you need (including forms and eSignatures) and then the client will have their own secure portal to provide the documents to you. The system will gently nudge them to provide the documents to you before the due date you set.

It's simple, secure, and easy to use – for you and your uncle!
