Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox

Dropbox is used within the marketing department as a business integration. We use it for storage of videos to be made available to the other parts of the organization as well as a communication tool during the proofing process. Each employee is allowed to use it for cloud storage of projects as well to enable off-site work.
  • Syncs with desktop.
  • Connects with the office suite for version tracking.
  • Easily enables sharing with non-dropbox users.
  • Certain government agencies and corporations do not allow dropbox transfers or usage.
  • Desktop sync can occasionally be buggy.
  • This has alleviated internal resources for storage.
  • Increases productivity by allowing off-site collaboration.
Dropbox is extremely easy to use. The only thing that can be somewhat confusing is sharing a link versus sharing the file through dropbox which requires users to sign in with a Dropbox account. Once you realize how to do this effectively, it becomes a smooth process for collaboration. Really, don't have any problems.
Haven't really used dropbox support so I can't weigh in on this. It seems intuitive enough to work through using it without the need for support. A quick Google search can usually turn up an answer to any questions that we have had during the duration of our implementation. No complaints here.
Dropbox has been my preferred compared to the other three. OneDrive is fantastic to use if you have the full Office 365 suite. Box works well but does not integrate as cleanly as Dropbox does. Google Drive can be somewhat of a bear to use when it comes to syncing between google programs and office programs.
Dropbox is well suited to organizations who need to share or proof files, documents, photos, and videos often. We use it to receive and share a great deal of content produced within the marketing department. It is not the best at using for a photo lightbox, however, and could be improved for that purpose.
