Dropbox Business

Most useful for accessing documents on the go, or to back up files when switching to a new computer or other devices. The business subscription is great for sharing documents with co-workers, storing commonly used files (such as logos and templates), and for collaboration. Doesn't have all the features of other project management software, but for document sharing, it has everything I need. The recent updates to the platform are helpful in providing quick access to files. Also, I really like that you can link your personal and business accounts.

  • Sometimes someone uploads a massive amount of data to a folder you sync, and therefore it attempts to sync to your devices...potentially filling up your entire free space. It would be great of there was a warning if suddenly there was a data sync of more than 1GB to give you some sort of option not to sync.

Dropbox is very expensive and its price is not as competitive as it was. We are looking for an alternative that will enable as to subscribe more users at a more affordable cost.Also, we did not like Dropbox customer service, and felt that they should have found a way to compensate us for some of the damage they were responsible for when restoring our data.

Dropbox is very easy and fun to use. It is very self evident and from a graphical user interface it is very intuitive. There is really nothing else to say about it.

At least once a week the app crashes on my computer and causes files to stop syncing. It is an easy fix to re-open the app, however I have to notice the app stopped working to realize it needs to be reopened.

Syncing to the cloud is almost instantaneous. Users on the same network can see my changes within seconds on their computer.

The implementation was actually very simple. Again, as stated previously, the most intriguing part of the entire exercise was the implementation of the directory structure for each account. Once you design and implement it for one, it becomes quite simple to replicate for each account you implement thereafter. You just really need to take time to ensure you implement the first perfectly and those that follow on will be likewise work efficiently and easily.

Alternatives Considered

ADrive has been very easy to use, and it's fast

I am a big fan of Google Drive (and Google's whole suite of online tools), but when it comes to file collaboration and management, I will chose Dropbox for Business every time. The sync functionality and device availability is unparalleled and, so far at least, the service has never failed me when I needed it most. While Google Drive can do all of these things, Dropbox does it in a much more accessible and user friendly way for veterans and novice users alike.

The only limit to scaling Dropbox is pricing. After a certain point, using traditional data storage would be more cost effective than per user pricing.

Return on Investment

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

  • Our experience has been overall extremely positive from a cost lowering perspective...we immediately lowered costs from our old solution which was great, so we migrated once we decided that technically it was the right solution for our customers.
  • Then a funny thing happened...after the migration to Dropbox, we actually were able to lower our data storage fees to our customers because the bandwidth costs reduced more than we expected. So while we painted the same profit margin, we reduced cost to our customers, it became a win-win for everyone! This then also positioned us competitively in a slightly better position to win more customers which never hurts! Thanks Dropbox!!
