Today’s Technology of the week: WeTransfer. Here are all the details…

What is WeTransfer?

WeTransfer is a really simple website that allows the user to send big files to other people.

What does it do?

The website really is simple. You enter the details for the person receiving the file, you then upload your file (up to 2GB) and voila! The recipient is sent an email with a link to download the document. The service is free, but they do have a WeTransfer Plus service which gives you access to more GB, security with password encryption and customisation.  This is €12 per month.

Why does it benefit Assistants?

We work with huge documents every day, from PowerPoint presentations to PDFs, video files and everything in between. Sending documents like this over email causes no need of problems so having a really easy platform like WeTransfer is an absolute lifesaver. It is really simple, secure and fast.

Why is it Practically Perfect PA’s tech of the week?

With all of the amazing speakers taking part in the Virtual Summit sending me huge MP4 files, I have been using WeTransfer a lot! It is simple and effective – which is just how I like my technology!
