Secure File Sharing
Why does secure file-sharing matter? You need to secure client information. It’s a huge responsibility to handle the data properly. Unlike other secure file-sharing services or client portals, MangoShare allows you to send and receive documents and e-signatures securely via email without PDFs.
With our e-signature module, requesting people’s signatures is simple and fast. Verify signer identity with Knowledge-Based Authentication (KBA), capture a legally binding signature, and securely store completed documents—all with the push of a button. Get documents signed by your clients anytime, anywhere. You just upload a document, and it’s delivered to your client to sign instantly.
The latest breakthrough in project management software: A secure client portal that your clients will actually use. Stop sending emails with massive attachments or chasing clients down to get paid. With our convenient portal, you can empower clients to make payments on their own terms (while meeting yours) and upload files without any stressful back-and-forth. Take task management to a whole new level with our project progress tracking.
File-sharing that’s fast, secure, and easy—for you and your clients. Send files, store files, and receive e-signatures with confidence. MangoShare allows you the security of a portal with the speed and simplicity of email.
Secure Your Client Info
At the end of the day, it’s the law. You have to secure your client’s information when sending it to them to remain compliant. Even if your client gives you the go-ahead—complete with written permission—to send it unsecured, you would still be breaking the law if you did so.
When you use MangoShare, you don’t have to choose between security and ease of use.
Software that Works the Way You Work
There’s nothing worse than taking a ten-minute phone call spent walking your client through the process of opening up a document. Save time and streamline your workflow by enabling clients to receive and send secure files.
Even non-tech-savvy clients will be able to navigate the platform intuitively. With drag-and-drop functionality and straightforward icons, it’s a breeze to upload the correct documents in the right place to keep your project on track.
Electronic Signature Requests on Your Terms
We’re all familiar with the old-fashioned method of requesting client signatures: Print. Sign. Scan. Repeat. After all of the hard work that goes into preparing the required forms, this seemingly simple process can lead to agonizing delays.
Never Leave Your Email
With our eSignature plug-in for Outlook and Google, requesting client signatures is simple and fast, right from within the tools you use every day. Spend less time switching between programs, and more time collaborating with clients.
Multiple Signature Requests
Need more than one signature on a document? Making multiple signature requests is easy and efficient. Streamline administrative tasks and check one more thing off your to-do list.
Client Portal Software
Modernize your firm and stop chasing clients. Mango provides custom-branded software with a simple and secure interface. And when it comes to billing, Mango provides options and flexibility so that you can improve cash flow and reduce your accounts receivable.
Secure Your Clients Info
The latest breakthrough in practice management software: a secure client portal that your clients will actually use. Experience improved customer satisfaction, bank-level security, and unlimited storage and file sizes.
Meet Your Clients Where They Are
With Mango’s Secure Send email plugin for Outlook, file exchange with clients happens where they are, in email. And it all gets saved in our 256-bit encrypted servers. Not only is Mango’s client portal user-friendly and easy to get started with, but it also comes with some of the most important features you’d expect from this kind of software. The client self-service capabilities mean clients can check on invoices, service records, and other important details without getting you involved at all.
Frequently Asked Questions
In short—yes! The Uniform Electronic Transactions Act (“UETA”) and the Electronic Signature in Global and National Commerce Act (“ESIGN”) provide legal guidelines for ensuring the validity of electronic records and documents signed online.
These laws mean that electronic signatures are recognized as legally binding if the document meets the following requirements:
- The signer’s identity can be confirmed or authenticated using a digital marker, like an IP address
- The parameters of the transaction are communicated and the signer undeniably intended to undergo the method of signing
- The signature associated with the document is verifiable and has evidentiary documentation
Digital signatures work by leveraging an encrypted system that is based on a standard technological framework called the Public Key Infrastructure (PKI). To validate the signer’s identity and prevent tampering, Mango provides digital audit trails that comply with the following unique identifying information:
- IP addresses
- OS and browser information
- Geographic coordinates
- Time and date stamps
These details ensure that eSignatures through our platform are legally binding.
The Electronic Signature & Records Association (“ESRA”) defines an electronic signature as “An electronic sound, symbol or process that is attached to or logically associated with a record and executed or adopted by a person with the intent to sign the record.”
In layman’s terms, an electronic signature is a string of virtual fingerprints that are used to verify the identity of a signer and their intent to sign the document.
Many of us are used to the old-fashioned way of requesting client signatures: Print. Sign. Scan. Repeat. With Mango’s eSignature module and secure file-sharing for accountants, you can get documents signed by your clients at any time and anywhere, even if they’re out of town. You just upload the document and it is delivered to your client to sign instantly. They take care of the rest.
Yes. All documents are encrypted with the SHA-256 encryption algorithm used by the NSA to protect data transfers between your computer and the server. While your documents are in cloud storage, all information is encrypted and stored behind a certified firewall to prevent data breaches.
When using a private cloud service to send sensitive data, it’s important to use a platform that requires users to log in or verify their identity to ensure they have the correct permissions. Mango’s secure file-sharing and resource management platform allows you to encrypt your client’s PII while it’s being sent over the internet or stored securely so it can’t be accessed by hackers.
Mango’s cloud-based client portal provides a more secure way to transfer and host information than Google Drive or Dropbox—which were created for consumer use, not businesses. These programs aren’t a good fit for accounting firms.
Since Dropbox is downloaded on individual computers or mobile devices and synced across connected accounts, there are a lot of security flaws when dealing with business information. Dropbox has had multiple documented confidential data breaches where millions of accounts were compromised, so it’s not particularly safe for industries that deal with sensitive information and tough regulatory rules. In 2016, a Dropbox hack exposed 68 million user credentials.
There is no end-to-end encryption with Dropbox or Google Drive, and therefore neither is sufficient for businesses looking to share files securely. That’s why, when sharing files with sensitive client information, it’s recommended to use an encryption service like secure client portals exclusively built for accounting businesses. Otherwise, you risk data breaches in your shared folders and files.
Absolutely. Granular permissions create a secure collaboration tool with our project management software. Folder Permission Profiles allow you to control team member permissions at every folder level. Additionally, you have complete control over folders to share in the client portal for your clients to have Read and Download/Upload access.
Absolutely! The client portal offers great mobile support with end-to-end encryption so that you and your clients can access the portal to manage tasks anytime, anywhere, from any device. Whether it’s time tracking or resource management, even if you’re in a location without Wi-Fi, you can still pull up your portal to get what you need or add files. Instead of waiting days for a client to view and pay an invoice with a paper invoice, send digital invoices to get paid in minutes and increase cash flow.
And because of Mango’s unlimited storage, you can keep as much as you need in a client portal. Send a single file or 100 at once, and all of it can be stored in your secure client portal software. You’ll be able to select your own yearly retention period so that as long as your service is active, you’ll have access to your data. Mango makes it easier to manage projects without missing a beat, no matter where life takes you.
When it comes to team collaboration, it’s important for every individual to buy into a shared vision for task management. Operating outside of a secure client portal can open up a project to numerous issues, from security breaches to lost documents to inefficient billing. Mango is built to make your projects simpler, more streamlined, and more secure— a scenario everyone can get behind.
It may be that clients are used to other, clunkier portals with difficult interfaces for securely sharing. If so, they’ll probably appreciate the change. Mango’s Client Portal offers myriad benefits to the end user beyond an intuitive interface, including: [Text Wrapping Break]
