If you are a Salesforce customer, you might know that dealing with a large number of files within the app is always troublesome considering the platform limitations. Being the #1 CRM provider in the world, Salesforce powers organizations to boost their sales, marketing & customer service processes. However, it can’t be considered as an advanced document management system because the platform doesn’t include this in its core capabilities.

The presence of multiple IT systems and, the trend of adopting different cloud platforms for running a business while using Salesforce as the centralized CRM means, files will be generated from different sources & ultimately get stored within the Salesforce app. Now with the limited file storage space that Salesforce offers, it becomes extremely challenging to maintain all the documents in one place with easy access, collaboration, and sharing. This is why the need for a powerful document management system becomes essential to drive higher business efficiency & harbor customer success. And XfilesPro masters the art of document management in Salesforce.

Aligned with the Salesforce Ecosystem

As a product, XfilesPro is completely aligned with the Salesforce ecosystem & it’s future. As mentioned earlier in the blog, XfilesPro supports all major Salesforce apps, AppExchange apps, apps, and Salesforce1 mobile.

Large Volume File Migration

One of the most unique capabilities of XfilesPro is that the application can migrate a large number of files from Salesforce & offload it to the external storage system. The process is easy, automated, and highly reliable. This will help customers optimize their file storage space immediately. A customer can use this feature as many times as they want.

Bi-directional Syncing of Files

Files moved from Salesforce to the external storage are synced from both sides. So a user having access to both applications can view, access, edit, and share files from either end. If a file is being edited from one side, the changes will automatically reflect in the other app as well. Another benefit of this feature is that non-Salesforce users can upload files to the external system, and Salesforce users can view it within their app.

Folder Structure & Syncing

The beauty of XfilesPro is that it offers not one, but two folder design options. Users can keep migrated Salesforce files within specific folders in their external system. Folder structure either can follow a template offered by XfilesPro, or customers can build custom folders. For customers moving to Salesforce from a legacy system, their existing files/folders can be synced to their new Salesforce app using XfilesPro.

Community User File Migration

XfilesPro supports Experience Cloud. Files getting uploaded from community users can be moved automatically to the external storage without any manual intervention. 

So, there you have it! These conclude some of the most prominent differences between XfilesPro & other file management solutions in the market.
