Dropbox

Dropbox is great for those looking for a highly useful cloud storage, especially if those in your organization are dealing with large files that need to be shared. It’s even better if your team has fast computers with plenty of storage so you can utilize sync features. It is not great for anyone looking for cloud storage where you can collaborate since there is no real time editing of documents. In that case, it would require the sync feature have great discipline to ensure everyone has the most recent version of a file.

Pros

  • Dropbox offers quick cloud storage that’s easy to share particular files and folders.
  • It is reasonably priced given the amount of storage you get.
  • It shows revisions and new versions of documents and files so you’re able to stay up to date on the newest version of anything within an organization.

Cons

  • There are a couple of rare instances where there's a feature which myself and other Dropbox users want but Dropbox has deemed either not needed or not viable. In those cases, it appears there's little we can do to change Dropbox's mind about enabling/adding the feature.
  • Through their website, I don't believe there's an easy way to see which folders are taking up the most space on your account. There have been a couple instances in the past when I needed to know where the majority of my data was being used and it was frustrating to not have that information available.

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.

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.

Alternatives Considered

Dropbox is the most user-friendly when compared to similar software applications. It also seems to have the most functionality built into one program with the exception of maybe ShareFile, however, ShareFile comes at a much higher cost. I am skeptical of the security provided by the likes of Wetransfer. OpenDXM is probably the worst out of the bunch. It typically only works on Internet Explorer and requires a specific version of Java.

Return on Investment

  • It saves us time by allowing a very user friendly approach for uploading, organizing, and sharing files.
  • Our board and committee members could easily access our meeting reports.
  • Great tool to share files with outside vendors. Our designer charges $60/hour and sending files via email with explanations is time consuming so by uploading files in an organized fashion allows us to get the job done faster at a lower cost.
