Customer Reviews

  • We installed this programme to give our suppliers a secure method of sending us files. It was easy to install and equally easy to set-up.

  • CompleteFTP has allowed me to be able to offer multiple different connection options within the same application. Less applications means less training for my team and overall better performance.

    Jeffery J, Computer Software (Capterra verified review)
  • A very concise package that delivers exactly what it says…we haven’t had any issues with FTP access since inception, and I’d highly recommend the package! Simple to set-up – we have user based security setup in the application, and have found it super reliable.

    Haig Flashoff, MINT Technology
  • My company uses this software on a daily basis and we have yet to run into functionality problems...I was able to easily customize the web front end and include all requirements where other pieces of software we tried were not able to.

  • CompleteFTP is going great for us, we’ve had no issues at all recently and many big New Zealand companies are using it for their day to day file transfers! Up time is 100%.

  • The software is really easy to install, configure and use. Support is great, turn around time to questions and issues raised is quick. Very often I get a reply from support within an hour or two.

  • We compared about 10 or so products and you guys were by-far the winner on a cost/feature comparison.

  • FTP Front-end to Web Services Data. One word: Support. Any deficiency in the product or documentation was quickly and expertly handled by support including the prompt issuance of replacement certificates in a system outage. There are very few companies out there with great customer support these days, but EnterpriseDT is one of them.

  • The Complete Protocol Suite for Windows. I've bounced around using a number of data exchange solutions over the past 20 years on Linux and Windows… I've stabilized on CompleteFTP because it's fully featured, easy to use, and requires very little administrative attention.
