A File-Sharing Startup That Keeps on Growing

Web Development

Syncplicity’s File-Sharing Startup Needed Support to Blossom

California-based Syncplicity came to Distillery because it was growing—fast. Syncplicity, a leading provider of file sharing and secure collaboration solutions, needed Distillery’s help building the right software to ensure that Syncplicity was well-prepared for accelerated expansion. When we first connected in 2010, Syncplicity was a small, fast-growing startup in Menlo Park trying to outpace the competition and plan for sustainable growth. Syncplicity needed outside help creating various business support tools, including an internal customer support web console and a new customer-facing business console—its first step toward B2B.

Together, We Designed a Partnership That Made Lofty Goals Come True

In the beginning, Distillery engineers helped Syncplicity create the business support tools required to compete and thrive. Since that time, our work with Syncplicity has expanded to include a range of large and small software development projects designed to support and accelerate the company’s continued growth.

We’ve collaborated with Syncplicity on countless projects over the years. Syncplicity and Distillery professionals have worked together to enable Syncplicity’s users to share content more freely by:

  • Instantly calculating data size quotas to enable a more accurate and timely system for charging customers
  • Creating a second data center in the EU to provide seamless UX for sharing and syncing content across regions
  • Allowing Syncplicity to converse with global customers in their native languages, thanks to a skilled team of translators
  • Providing users instant, cloud-enabled access to their data–regardless of file size–via any mobile, desktop or laptop device

Distillery’s Custom-Engineered Software Tools Yielded Awards, Growth and a Partnership That Perseveres

With Distillery’s help, Syncplicity quickly became an industry leader through focus, perseverance and innovation. Since teaming up with us, Syncplicity has doubled its user base and raked in awards. Here are some of the company’s accomplishments:

  • Named a 2018 “Leader” in the Gartner Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing, a third-time honor
  • Recognized by Forrester Wave™ as a “Leader” in Enterprise File Sync And Share Platforms, Hybrid Solutions (2016)
  • Effectively doubled its user base (2015)

In February 2017, Axway, a global leader in hybrid data integration, acquired the company. We’ve continued to serve as a strategic partner for Syncplicity as it has expanded and undergone a series of acquisitions. While it’s common practice for acquiring companies to “clean house” and dismiss third-party vendors post-acquisition, Distillery’s invaluable services were retained each time.

Today, Syncplicity serves over 25,000 businesses and individuals.
