Score 8 out of 10
We are a small team, so we are using Dropbox across the organization. It allows us to store and share all types of documents and images that are critical to our business. From fundraising documents and templates to product requirements and designs, it's a very simple tool that allows easy access and collaboration - this is key for us as we work in a distributed team. While there are other tools for image sharing, Dropbox allows us to centralize all content within the same solution that we use for file sharing.
- File sharing permissions - Dropbox makes it super simple to add and delete permissions to specific folders and/or files. This is especially key when working with contractors who are in and out of projects for us.
- Make it easy to add more storage space - their referral process is really easy and we continually comply to get more space.
- The ability for multiple users to edit a document at the same time - a la Google Docs - would be a nice to have.
- Organization - Dropbox saves us a ton of time and the annoyance of asking each other for important documents.
I'd renew my use of Dropbox for one simple reason - it works in an efficient manner.
I really like the simplicity of Dropbox and wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone for personal or professional use (I use it for both). With that said, I use Google Docs when collaborating with business partners on anything that will require constant updating. I wouldn't call it an all encompassing solution, but a great tool that I couldn't do without.
