Overall Satisfaction with Box

At our company, we use Box to manage our sensitive files. We use another cloud server for our day-to-day documents but needed a separate account/location where we keep our files that we do not want our employees to have access to. Since we could only have one location of our other platform, Box was the perfect solution. We use Box on two desktop computers and 2 mobile devices.
  • Syncs quickly across devices.
  • Allows for a variety of organizational methods for files and folders.
  • Allows for multiple device integration.
  • Has the ability to login through the internet or access files on your computer or mobile device.
  • Various pricing plans to meet needs based on space and users.
  • Needs a quick link to see attached devices.
  • Box has given us peace of mind that our files are safe and backed up.
  • Box has provided solutions for us that we couldn't find elsewhere.
  • Box has allowed us to collaborate on files which has saved us 1-2 hours per week.
We have used Dropbox for a long time but we needed a secondary solution and that is when we started using Box. The features and benefits between the two platforms are very similar. If you are looking for team collaboration, Box offers a more affordable option. I appreciate that Box has the option to create a Box Note or document right from their app and those files can be edited and added to the correct location in Box. This makes it feel a little like a Google Doc - but puts it where you need it in your Box Drive.

Google Drive can offer similar solutions but can only be accessed from the web so nothing can be edited or accessed if you don't have internet access. If you want to have access from a computer, device, or laptop with or without internet access, Box is the way to go.
Box is easy to use, it has all of the features we have needed, and has also introduced us to new features that we have utilized successfully. It is well suited for small team collaboration and offers a variety of affordable packages based on your team size and storage needs. Box is an intuitive program and has a great reputation for delivering a strong solution. We have been 100% pleased with our experience!

Box is an amazing platform - the more I have used it, the more I like it! It is well suited for personal and/or business use. It works well for small companies with teams less than 20. I feel it may be hard to manager for large teams that all need to access the same files. External collaborators are a great feature for teams - allowing selective access to folders as needed. The cost is very reasonable!
