Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox
We use Dropbox for data and file sharing when conducting due diligence ahead of prospective mergers, acquisitions, and joint ventures. Further, we often use it to share large file batches with outside advisors as needed. Dropbox is a functional solution for us given file-sharing size limitations on the Google Suite platform. Further, Dropbox has significantly increased its search-ability functionality which allows us to search large volumes of files quickly.
- Sharing large files and multiple files with various internal and external parties
- Searching large file batches quickly
- Allowing external and internal parties to contribute to a data file across organizations
- Integrates well with other enterprise softwares (Word, Adobe, etc.)
- File text search functionality needs continued improvement
- Dropbox file security and fraud prevention needs improvement
- Dropbox should continue to integrate with email and enterprise software interfaces for ease of use
- Dropbox is one of the most affordable DMS solutions and has been well worth the low cost of entry
- Dropbox has helped us reduce project inefficiencies significantly by providing a platform to share documents
- There are concerns about Dropbox's security as compared to other cloud DMS systems which gives certain team members pause and hesitancy to use the platform. Certain outside advisors (e.g., law firms) refuse to collaborate on Dropbox.
Dropbox is a great low-cost, wholesale cloud DMS solution. That being said, its security features and search-ability are not as sophisticated as Datasite or Egnyte, which to be fair, are much more costly solutions. As compared to its peers in terms of cost, Dropbox is the superior option with a breadth of tools, good integration with online interfaces, and good access control levels.

I would recommend Dropbox over most DMS sharing solutions because of its low cost (free for users under a certain size) and ease of use. I have found many professionals don't have immediate solutions when they run into large file sharing problems or don't have sophisticated experience with a DMS interface and Dropbox is very user-friendly for both groups.
