Aptean is a global provider of CRM, ERP, and supply chain management solutions to an extensive variety of industries. After the recent formation of Aptean, they sought after a managed file transfer solution that would make transferring information easier for both the internal also giving administrators further control over the access of company data. Their search for a solution was influenced by these motives:

  • Emails are sometimes blocked during exchange due to file size limits, creating problems with communication exchange between staff and customers.
  • Need to minimize the amount of data stored on-premises.
  • Demand to validate information being exchanged between customers and internal staff.


Aptean was in need of a comprehensive file transfer solution to easily handle large volumes of files and provide a solution for administrators to control access to company data. Aptean chose the Thru File Exchange and Collaboration Platform to satisfy their file transfer needs. Using Thru, Aptean exchanges extremely large files around the globe with the following features:
