Overall Satisfaction with OneDrive

OneDrive was used as a cloud sharing device where we could save and share documentation, materials, files, etc. for other internal teams and departments. It was a safe place for private company information and documentation that needed to be saved, shared, updated for historical or current usage across teams. As opposed to using personal drives, this was the preferred sharing and saving method for materials.
  • Internal sharing of documentation, materials, and collateral.
  • Great place to collaborate and update materials between teams and resources.
  • Great central access point for internal sharing.
  • External sharing of materials, collateral, documentation.
  • Archiving of information.
  • Central hub site like SharePoint vs. just file/folder sharing.
  • Collaboration and sharing capabilities.
  • Syncing and saving effectiveness and speed.
  • Access and availability to all users internally.
  • Ability to share and collaborate across teams which encourages knowledge sharing.
  • Ensures internal teams have consistency and the most up-to-date materials.
  • Fosters and enables sharing information.
  • Box
Box is another file-sharing application that is very similar to OneDrive. Box falls short of OneDrive in its syncing capabilities. OneDrive is very quick with syncing so you never have to be concerned that you are not using the most up-to-date materials. Box was always a bit delayed and did not always accurately sync across systems. OneDrive benefits from being backed by Microsoft, so you expect the connection across applications that it allows. OneDrive also provides consistency for use and intuitive understanding because of that Microsoft consistency. I'd prefer OneDrive over Box.

Would you buy OneDrive again?


OneDrive is extremely well suited for internal use. It's an easy product to utilize across teams and departments within an organization to share the most up-to-date information. It is a great information-sharing space. Syncing is quick and easy so that everyone has the most current information. It's easy to navigate and very intuitive, as part of the Microsoft suite. It is an appropriate cloud-based application to share private data and all other collaborative documentation for a company.
