A New Twist on Content Delivery and File Management for Spin Six
Strategic marketing and design firm signs with Thru, for delivery, management and archiving of media files between two offices and with clients worldwide
Irving, Texas, August 19, 2009 – SpinSix Strategic Marketing & Design, signs contract with Thru for use of SendThru and ShareThru firm-wide, for offices in Arizona and Virginia.
A creative firm where individuality and creativity are encouraged, SpinSix is a strategic marketing and design agency that focuses on search engine marketing, customer retention lead aggregation and web development. They also are a full-service design studio that handles branding, corporate identity, and design services for a wide array of clientele. SpinSix will be using Thru to share large files within the agency and with their clients across the country and around the world.
Creative team members in two different offices now use SendThru, our certified global file transfer solution, to send media files of unlimited size, anywhere in the world, quickly and securely. All accessed from the Web. Our Dropbox feature allows posting of print and media files for clients to download and review, with detailed tracking information for the sender. Agency teams no longer rely on third parties to distribute media files, or sending via their own FTP servers. Clients can access material anywhere in the world.
FTP had been the firm’s standard for file distribution, but FTP lacks fundamental monitoring and security. Files can be lost, deleted or accessed improperly from FTP servers with no means of tracking delivery. FTP is cumbersome for clients and team members outside the agency to access material quickly and easily.
“There is a definite shift away from FTP in the advertising and media industry” according to Thru VP of Customer Service, Daniel Hurtubise. “Demands of large media files put impossible strains on inhouse infrastructure for smaller firms, so agencies like SpinSix are increasingly looking to the cloud.”
SendThru provides fast, easy and secure access to campaign related files, and easy access to their clients for accessing and reviewing material. Reports detail who downloaded what, when, tracking file traffic for project management and workflow. Therefore, more time can be focused on the creative product, and less time spent on getting material to clients. Coupled with ShareThru, our virtual online file management system, SpinSix can retain, manage and distribute files in a multitude of software formats between numerous companies – in a Web based application that is easily accessed, but remains completely secure.
An enterprise platform for secure, online content delivery and management, Thru consists of four products: SendThru, ShareThru, SyncThru, which accelerates delivery of any file, any size, anywhere across the globe, and SellThru, a sales force performance enhancement tool, provides real-time business intelligence, monitoring and task generation for Salesforce.com users. Thru’s platform is entirely Web-based, so same-day implementation is possible without need for hardware on site. Thru maintains a global customer base and is headquartered in Irving, Texas, with offices in San Jose, California and Sydney, Australia.
