Overall Satisfaction with Dropbox Business
We use it company-wide to allow people working remotely to share files. We had a server previously that needed a password and connections to get into while working outside of the office, however it became cumbersome to work with. Dropbox Business was purchased and took away the need to sign into the server.
- Removed the need to have a company server to log in to while working remotely
- Great mobile app on the iPhone, allows for quick access to view without needing a computer
- Allows all team members to collaborate in real time
We had tried Google Drive in a limited fashion before purchasing Dropbox Business. There was no comparison between the two products. Dropbox is much more powerful and useful than Google Drive was. Might just be Google Drive is more driven towards personal use than business use. We have not thought of switching products, as it handles everything we need perfectly.
Overall the product handles everything we need from a business perspective, and has allowed us to stop having people working remotely access and sign in to the office server. It allows everyone working remotely to work 'live' in sharing files. File management copies the appearance of your own machine, which makes working on dropbox almost seamless.
I would rate this very high. Ease of this product is simple, and appears you are working on your own server or computer's file management structure. A feature I have used recently is the mobile app, which allows me to have all of the information at my fingertips as soon as I need it.
Best suited is that it really copies the look and feel of a normal file storage system on your computer. It feels that I'm working right on our own server or computer. The quick syncing is great while working with people remotely. It forces duplicate copies to be made so that people see if a specific [version] s already open.
