I think every business can use Dropbox to store, save, and send files efficiently. Using other storage softwares can become messy when there isn't internet access, or there is too many users. Business confidentiality remains protected by using Dropbox for teams.

  • Dropbox's real-time collaboration features, including simultaneous editing and commenting, have revolutionized the way our teams work together.
  • On multiple occasions, we've accidentally overwritten important documents or needed to retrieve deleted files. With Dropbox, we can easily revert to previous versions or recover deleted files, preventing data loss and minimizing disruptions.
  • Dropbox excels in making file sharing a breeze. With just a few clicks, we can generate shareable links or invite colleagues to shared folders.

Dropbox is a user-friendly, easy tool which requires little to no skill and they offer a free version with a good amount of storage available. There are other file sharing tools available however at a cost. Dropbox free version I have used for years and it serves every purpose I need.

Dropbox
[Its] functionality and usability are very good, however[,] on every computer that I have ever installed the app on, Dropbox assumes I want it to update the files every time I start the system up. That's not always true, but the app assumes it is. I can switch that function off, but I would rather that function default to "Off" and then I can decide to turn it on as needed.

Dropbox is really useful, you can access any file from anywhere and you can upload and even edit files online, but, sometimes it can be slow. Downloading, uploading, and syncing is a bit slow, it can take several minutes. Furthermore, the search engine for large amounts of data can be slow too and it is not powerful.

It has not been necessary to go to customer support lately, since everything works perfectly. However, I must add that at the beginning when I started using Dropbox, and I had any doubts about how it worked, customer support was always attentive and found the best solutions effectively.

I did not personally take any training for Dropbox so I am self taught but I know when our Vice President selected Dropbox, he personally did do some training modules on it and I'm assuming it was very easy and simple to understand since he now acts like he is a pro at it!

I needed to stay current in improving my daily operations. Dropbox
was suggested to me by a former colleague two-years ago and I've been using it just fine ever since.

Dropbox is more reliable and consistent than anything else. I know that Dropbox will still work no matter what I use. I also know that if I need to move away from Dropbox, it will be an easy transition.

Return on Investment
ADrive
  • None, but it has been a good reference for associates to download files remotely

Dropbox
  • A negative impact was the change on the business plans where now Dropbox doesn't offer "unlimited" space, forcing us to buy a lot of physical hard drivers to move part of the storage outside of Dropbox.
  • A positive is that we are always "online", if one of our machines is damaged, everything is online in Dropbox
  • In the beginning, we were saving money on hard drives thanks to Dropbox but as I mentioned in the first point, this is no longer the case
