Pros
"This solution is great for inviting and sharing documents with other users."

More Amazon WorkDocs Pros »

"The first thing that we liked about this solution is that administrators do not have access to private folders.""The application is very light in terms of uploading and downloading files.""The interface is very good.""Box is very user-friendly; more so than SharePoint.""We've never had a penetration. We've never had a security issue that their support didn't solve. We love their audit trail. We can know exactly when a collaborator opens. We love how you can define a collaborator.""Governance and ease of use are why I think a lot of people like Box, including ourselves. Basically, we're concerned about what information is being sent to Box, so we use a lot of the Box governance features to make sure that what is being sent to Box is appropriate. If it is not appropriate, it is not allowed to be sent. It is also pretty easy to use. It is the easiest to use for customers and for technologists.""Box is very realistic when it comes to sharing capabilities."

Cons
"I had a very bitter experience with their mobile app."

More Amazon WorkDocs Cons »

"I would like to see improvements made in the ability to integrate with other online sharing systems.""Better integration with other solutions is needed.""The integration with other products should be improved.""The UI should be faster. Sometimes it lags when switching between documents.""I recommend doing the trial first, because it's not cheap ware. It's not overly expensive, but it's not cheap ware, and enterprise has a minimum number of users.""I haven't really come across a case where we're not able to use it for what it is, so I don't really have anything holding us up or any customers holding us up at this point that I know of. There are always some limitations, but as a technologist, I just live with them, and there is always room for improvement, but I don't have anything quantifiable.""If there was a plugin that added some sort of toolbar in Office, that would be great."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"It's cheaper compared to similar products available"

More Amazon WorkDocs Pricing and Cost Advice »

"The pricing of this solution is better than Dropbox.""I believe Box is cheaper than SharePoint.""They are very price competitive when pushed. Initially, they come out with a standard list price, but they are willing to be very competitive. The Box price was pretty much equal to or lower than the Citrix price, and Box has more features.""There's a free version that allows you to use it with almost full-feature access. Even in the free version, it gives you all you need."
