If your construction, architecture or engineering firm is having trouble keeping track of all the documents being created and shared by users across the enterprise, and by employees with personal mobile devices interacting with your file system, FileTrek claims to have an answer. The cloud-based service allows secure file sharing, project collaboration, and the ability for managers to track content and data with enhanced compliance-friendly audit reporting. The company says the solution is easy to use, transparent to users and can scale across thousands of desktops and mobile devices to maximize individual and workgroup productivity.

Best yet, the prices look reasonable, and you can try it out without cost. Three tiers of the cloud service are available to address the needs of small to medium-sized businesses or enterprises:

  • The Enterprise solution provides enhanced compliance tracking and reporting capabilities.
  • The Team version for locating, sharing and tracking files amongst a workgroup begins with a 30-day free trial followed by a cost of $20 per user monthly.
  • The Individual version for personal file sharing and storage is available for free.

According to Dale Quayle, CEO of FileTrek:

Companies are grappling with how to solve data sprawl created by the explosion of devices and cloud services that have been adopted for convenience and increased mobility. Employees across all departments are deploying their personal devices and using public-cloud and file sharing applications that are currently outside IT control. FileTrek will give businesses the ability to track, access and share all their business content – while retaining employee freedom to create and collaborate productively.

The company says FileTrek is the only secure cloud file sharing and collaboration tool with an innovative data tracking feature that instantly tells you: the location of a file, who has worked on it, the various changes that have been made to it, and how files are related. All versions of documents and files automatically backup and sync between multiple devices in real-time. Users can share files directly from their desktop and access data anywhere from any device, whether they are online or offline. Files do not need to be tethered to a “box in the sky” for access and sharing. The service is the only solution to track project dependencies and related files during content collaboration, according to the company.

There’s also an audit trail that gives management and IT visibility of all sharing, syncing and versioning activities of a file or its contents. Automatic audit trails showing file genealogy can be generated to obtain a comprehensive view of actions related to critical data. This is crucial for regulated industries with compliance requirements as well as any enterprise or small business that creates and/or manages controlled content and wants to ensure the security of its company IP.

All files are encrypted for secure cloud storage. Additionally, an internal FileTrek storage option allows enterprises to utilize their own internal servers as the host rather than utilize the public cloud. This option allows organizations to share files, collaborate on projects, prevent data loss, and increase profitability – all within a unified and private system.
