FileCatalyst Spaces Use Cases

FileCatalyst Spaces workflow that illustrates how a sender sends files through a web portal, to a FileCatalyst server then to the recipient.

Send Large Files To Any Email

Forget about dreaded “bounced email” notifications with FileCatalyst Workflow. When used for distribution, FileCatalyst Workflow 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.

Upload File Through a Web Portal

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.
