Needed a replacement for Hightail’s Outlook plugin to email large file attachments.
Sport Clips replaced Hightail with the Thru Add-In for Outlook to easily send files of any size.

Email is still the primary messaging and collaboration tool despite widespread adoption of instant messaging platforms. However, as the volume and size of files increase, many of today’s businesses have a problem when needing to send large files that are above the standard file size limit. Employees at Sport Clips experienced this issue when employees needed to send large files from Microsoft Outlook.
Sport Clips had been using an Outlook plugin by Hightail that allowed them to send larger email attachments, but the product was discontinued. Without the large file sharing functionality they needed in Outlook, the company decided to either shift employees to use Hightail’s web application or find a replacement similar to the Hightail Outlook plugin.
To allow employees to easily send large files using Microsoft Outlook, Sport Clips chose the Thru Add-In for Outlook to replace the Hightail Outlook plugin.
Using the Thru Add-In for Outlook, users not only send large file attachments but they can now directly access and manage their entire cloud file system without leaving their mailbox. Here are some capabilities of the Thru Add-In for Outlook that make sending large files easier for Sport Clips employees:
Now that Sport Clips is using the Thru Add-In for Microsoft Outlook for large file transfers, employees are able to easily exchange large files and have additional benefits that aren’t available with Hightail:
