A SIMPLESAAS SOLUTIONFOR ALL YOUR LARGEFILE TRANSFERNEEDS
What is FileCatalyst Spaces?
FileCatalyst Spaces is a fully managed and hosted service that allows companies to share files at full line speeds using our patented fast file transfer technology. FileCatalyst Spaces is truly an enterprise solution without the enterprise costs.
Forget about dreaded “bounced email” notifications with FileCatalyst Spaces. When used for distribution, FileCatalyst Spaces overcomes email file size limits by acting as a middleman in the file transfer process. Files are sent to the FileCatalyst Server using our Emmy® award-winning file transfer acceleration technology, and the recipients simply receive an email with an accelerated download link.
FileCatalyst Spaces acts as a web portal where your clients can easily upload files. Create custom fields to collect any information (metadata) you need to process the job. Use these fields to collect information including quantities, sizes, special instructions – or any other information you may need.
Once collected, the files and metadata are combined into a “job.” Jobs may go through any number of phases pertaining to your workflow, which is tracked through the system until the job is completed.
FileCatalyst Spaces acts as your organization’s central storage location for one or more “web folders” – keeping all of your files organized and managed. Users have remote access (via a web browser) to shared or personal files from anywhere in the world. Group folders, along with read/write permissions, can be assigned to any number of users.
1. User Sends File Request link For Target Folder 2. File Request Email 3. File Upload To Targeted Folder 4. Confirmation Email with Link
Request Files To Any Web Folder
The Request Files workflow enables registered users to request files from anyone with an email address. When a request is received by a user, they click a link and are taken to an upload page. Files are uploaded to the folder chosen by the person who sent the file request.

When you create different upload portals, you may need different criteria for each. With FileCatalyst Spaces, you can create custom metadata fields based on the information you need for the submission.
Sometimes, you may just need an upload portal for “anonymous” and “public” users. FileCatalyst Spaces allows you to create portals that don’t require a login. Simply direct them to your public form and let the uploading and downloading commence.
Both accelerated file transfers using FileCatalyst TransferAgent and automated file transfers using FileCatalyst HotFolder require client software. HTTP non accelerated file transfers are possible without any client software.
With FileCatalyst HotFolder, you can set up folders that will sync (upload and/or download) to custom intervals. Be it every hour or every week, you files will sync without the need for human interaction.
