Allo
Allo is ideal for brainstorming, designing, and presenting information in a remote company. With its easy-to-use tools and modern, minimalistic, and non-intrusive interface these kinds of tasks can be done in Allo beautifully. However, it was difficult for us to have a detailed project schedule (with automatic reminders for tasks and subtasks). To sum up, Allo is a perfect digital paper canvas but currently, it lacks automation features.

Dropbox
When collaborating with a team on content creation with the purpose of bringing multiple inputs in a nonstructured or nonfixed media type, this is a great choice because of its diversity of content and collaboration tools, however, if you are looking to have high flexibility in a particular content creation stream, for example, sophisticated text editing or presentation, there are a lot of strong competitors out there.

  • With Dropbox Paper, I can insert images and videos into your document, to make the document more visual, which is helpful for creating newsletters and simple flyers.
  • Once you create a document, you can save it as a template to be reused as a starting point for creating new documents.

Allo
Miro is a direct competitor for Allo. It has more features and integrations but Allo appeals much more to us because of the easy-to-navigate and elegant interface, as well as speed. Infinity is an all-in-one project management app. It's ideal for detailed project management and keeping tracts of tasks (and other. items) but Allo is much better for designing and brainstorming.

I was not part of the decision making to acquire the Dropbox tool against any of the other options and competitors. However, I can assume that the fact that we have been using Dropbox File Management for many years and many important files are stored and shared in the tool everyday, the adding of Dropbox Paper should have been felt very natural.

  • Dropbox Paper has allowed all of our employees to be much more productive and on track even when we can't be in the office, which from a management standpoint is a huge positive impact. They know that productivity isn't slowing or lacking when everyone isn't actually sitting in the office under their watchful eye.
  • It has had a huge impact on our turn around time and speed of getting more work and projects completed. The more work you can effectively get done in a time period means more money for the bottom line.
  • It has made the majority of our team members more accountable and reliable when they know everyone is working together on something and each person has their own checklist of items to complete. It is especially helpful that everyone can see the same checklist, so everyone knows what each other is accomplishing.
