Overall Satisfaction with Box

Box is being used unilaterally across the university providing a secure file sharing platform for staff. Box provides a quick, secure medium to share documents with colleagues, with the capability to show real-time updates, manage version control, with accessibility from any computer. I have the capability to create text documents, spreadsheets and presentations to multiple collaborates at the touch of a button.
  • Access control. Share the files with who you want. Limit accessibility, edit ability, or control rights.
  • Real-time updates with version control.
  • Notification of latest updates to a file.
  • Security authentication for documents.
  • File management visualization.
  • Trending access with analytic options.
  • Positive: Real-time document access.
  • Positive: Telecommuting capabilities across multiple campuses, locations, etc.
  • Positive: Portability of documents through cloud storage/management.
Box is more widely used within my organization. This allows me to reach out to peers, collaborates and managers knowing that documents in Box are securely accessed.
Box is well suited for agile projects where documents are collaborated upon by a team. Allows for a team to work across a broad geographic area yet keep the availability to access the latest team documents.

Box is not well suited for small businesses with small geographic footprints. As other software would be better suited.

Using Box

I am an HR collaborator for the largest division within the university. I support over 600 full-time staff within the information technology division.
