Used by hosted Direct package only, the FileCatalyst Express Client is a standalone desktop application for on-request (unscheduled, adhoc) file transfers. This is a good choice for people who: prefer on-request file transfers, are already familiar with standard FTP clients, and prefer to have an installed desktop application.

Unlimited distribution of the Express application is included in the cost.

Used by hosted Direct package only, Java Web Applets allow you to embed accelerated file transfer into any webpage, resulting in a zero-installation experience for the end-user. Build a new file transfer web portal, or add the applets to an existing one. There are three applets: two-way, upload-only, and download-only.

Applicable only for the Direct package, Java Applets are a one-time fee add-on at $2,500 USD

Outlook Plugin

The FileCatalyst Outlook Plugin uses your organization's instance of FileCatalyst Workflow to enable large file transfer without leaving Microsoft® Outlook™. See Outlook Plugin for more details.

Outlook Plugin is included with all the FileCatalyst Workflow package


FileCatalyst Mobile App is available for both iPhone/iPad and Android

Mobile app is included with all the packages.


Used by both Workflow and Direct packages, the FileCatalyst SDK is written in Java SE. Use the Client API's to automated file transfers or job submission to either your hosted Workfow instance or hosted Direct account.

The CLI (Command Line Interface) can be triggered using scripts or via applications built in languages other than Java. If your existing process already uses command-line FTP, upgrade it with accelerated FileCatalyst transfers.

The SDK and CLI are a one-time fee add-on at $2,000 USD
