We are using Box for document management purpose. Box is one of the best Document Delivery System tool available in market. Box also has free version which is having all the necessary features available for using tool perfectly and deciding if premium version is required or not. We need to prepare loading register of the document which we are going to upload and that feature is i think old fashioned apart from that totally recommended.

I used box extensively to manage thousands of data and programming files for mixed methods research projects with my research team. Much of the data that my team used for research projects had to be stored securely, and Box offers a secure method for storing files that met the criteria for our IRB approvals. My research team also needed to be able to collaborate and see file updates in real-time, which Box allowed us to do easily.

Box is yet another entry into the cloud storage and sharing space for me. I have used it extensively for file sharing thanks to its simple interface and standalone apps. Media files, PDF documents, and other files have been a breeze to share within Box, and I appreciate the flexibility.

Mainly used to store larger files that I need for work and to collaborate with co-workers.
All of my main work files are stored in Box, so I can access it from any computer if necessary.
I also make and edit project-level files as needed, as well as reports and other relevant files.

We use Box to store our sales collateral, agreements, videos, etc., which allows us to collaborate with one another regardless of whether we're in the same office or on the other side of the world. I believe their tagline is "Access your data anywhere, anytime, and from any device," and that's the truth. As long as you have Internet connectivity you have access to everything stored in Box, and if you know you're going to be somewhere without Internet, you can download what you'll need ahead of time by dragging it into your quick access folder. It's a fantastic platform, and although we're a very small company, I can easily see how a company with hundreds of employees could securely share files and collaborate in real-time.

In my organization at the moment, Box is the official medium via which we can access day to day needed files from just about anywhere. I have found it to be secured, easy to use across a variety of platforms and it helps in promoting collaboration between individuals and teams, across my company.

I use Box for sending requests for reviews of my project files. I get requests to create designs for website pages. Upon creation of pages, I send various versions of designs for approvals. I am trying to minimize communications by sending files via Box platform to the project team. I use Box for sending content documents as well along with design files.

Primarily, Box is being used for saving our work and official files securely in the cloud, from where we can access them across teams and departments. Of course, beyond file storage, Box also helps to address vital work related activity in the area of electronic signature and workflow automation, in departments outside of mine. However, in my department, we have used Box mainly for storage purposes.

Box helps to find everything in one place. It is one of the best tools for a big project that you can purchase. When a lot of team members are participating [in the] same project and you have a lot of files being exchanged and you want to keep track of all of them, then BOX is the answer to that.

Box is used to backup important day to day work files across the length of my coy [company]. I tend to think our use of Box within my coy [company], has improved productivity within my organization, especially in situations where employees need to collaborate remotely. In this kind of situation, Box ensures that we always have access to much needed work files, as long as we can connect to the internet. In select departments within my coy [company], like the marketing department where I work, Box is integrated with internal workflow process, thus resulting in the automation and faster completion of regular day to day simple yet effective tasks such as scheduling events, requesting file access, etc.

We use Box from time to time to manage files between our clients. Clients send files via Box and we use it to manage those files accordingly. Box helps receive design files and other format files for the projects. If a client wants to send files via Box, then this platform helps us manage them with it.

It's used for sharing files within my department but also with other departments and organizations (e.g. external users that we cooperate with). We can share various documentation files between employees e.g. including process descriptions and other usages. With external users, we share procedures on how to use specific services and what are our internal processes.

We are using Box to enable secure access to files on mobile devices and increase mobility of employees. Box has empowered employees to easily create secure and collaborative workspaces with external parties. It encouraged tighter collaboration between employees and it is now possible to upload files and communicate faster with clients, improving the level of service provided to the clients. Box saves time and eliminated the need to search for emails and attachments.

Box fulfilled communication needs and the ability to share multiple file types with project teams and vendors outside the company. Marketing teams access presentations and marketing collateral during meetings with clients without the need to download those materials ahead of time. Most times we are under pressure to gather numbers from a variety of sources and unite them into one document, Box helped us connect data from different sources, connect dots from region to region, and from device to device.

Its the tool I use to sync files between my computer and the cloud to make them available whenever needed and to make sure they are never outdated. Any changes I make to files in one device are reflected on all other devices. Streamlines the file sharing process throughout the different offices no matter how far they are physically.

I use Box for file sharing and inviting other collaborators to create Word documents, spreadsheets, and presentations, as well as for collaborating on these documents in real-time. It is packed with oodles of features and options for file storage, syncing, and collaboration. Box backs up entire hard drives and systems. By simply clicking on files and folders then tabbing over to ''details'' I can view their sync status on my account.

Box is used by all researchers in my organization to manage confidential participant data. It is essential in maintaining the privacy of our research subjects and complying with ethics board review policies. It is used by everyone at the University of South Florida who is engaged in confidential research that is monitored by the Institutional Review Board (IRB).

BOX is a good product used for file and data sharing. It's a very easy and portable tool used to keep and share big files which can't be sent over emails.

If you are worried about you data you can back up on the cloud BOX.
