Overall Satisfaction with Box

Box is not used very widely in my organization. Instead, most of my peers use other cloud computing software like Google Drive and Dropbox as they are more well known and offer a suite of productivity services and/or third party integration. Although Box gives users a reliable space to store data, it remains rather stagnant and we haven't seen much improvements to the software.
  • Large space to store data
  • Not too expensive for cloud storage
  • Multiple device support
  • Lack of major improvements
  • Not very well known
  • Box isn't very powerful yet
  • Box isn't very versatile so it was very good when I was storing files in Box.
  • However, Box offers good pricing tiers, making it not too expensive.
Google Drive allows for good collaboration of documents between co-workers. There is also a good version control system that remembers the history. Box however does not allow for that. Google Drive is also very versatile as you can make documents, spreadsheets, presentations and forms there, unlike Box.
Box is suited for generic storing of data. I do not really see how much better Box is compared to its competitors. Box has not engaged in much product differentiation to make it unique and awesome for users. Box is not very appropriate when you want to do multi-person collaboration on a document/presentation.
