Docmosis
With customer support and flexibility in handling specific, unique scenarios, they are able to provide solutions quickly. There are no scenarios currently which we are aware that it may be less appropriate.

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.
  • Dropbox Paper has some basic formatting features like bolding text, adding links, and creating H1 and H2 headings.
  • You can insert tables into your Dropbox Paper document
  • Dropbox Paper also has an unusual but helpful feature, and that is the time line feature.

Cons
Docmosis
  • There isn't much in terms of what could be improved, but the only challenge we have which is in terms of future scaling and isn't a limitation, but just something we're trying to be cognizant of as it might increase our infrastructure costs. Since we have large numbers of multi-nested document templates, and large documents. Although Docmosis did help us reduce the time to generate our largest documents by a large percentage. This is likely an area of improvement that all providers would need to address.

Alternatives Considered
Docmosis
We also evaluated Winward Studios solution along with HotDocs, we selected Docmosis for the following reasons:
1. We were using docker very early on, so they were very cooperative in helping us get our infrastructure working during the early evaluation phases, and went above and beyond to help with some of our template processing efforts.
2. When we were looking to improve the processing speed due to our complex large number of dynamically inserted templates, Docmosis was helpful with ideas. We were able to improve speed quite significantly with Docmosis' help by managing some dynamic aspects of our templates and including them inline vs. having them loaded dynamically.

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.
