Quotes From Members

We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:

Pros
"Box is very user-friendly; more so than SharePoint.""The application is very light in terms of uploading and downloading files.""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.""Box is very realistic when it comes to sharing capabilities.""The interface is very good.""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."

"I like the security and also the configuration. It is easy to configure and most of our business use cases have everything just with the configuration itself."

Cons
"The UI should be faster. Sometimes it lags when switching between documents.""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.""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.""The integration with other products should be improved.""Better integration with other solutions is needed."

"Developers like us have an upgraded interface. That interface does not work in the process that we have today. It hangs and is not user-friendly."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"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.""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."

Questions from the Community
Top Answer: Box is very realistic when it comes to sharing capabilities.
Top Answer: I use the free version. It provides me with all of the features that I need.
Top Answer: I believe there is still a desktop version; I used to use it in the past. If it's still in use, there should be a Microsoft Office plugin because most of the shareable documents are generated… more »
