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

Pros
"The solution is easy to use, everyone can use it.""I like the synchronization, and the integration with Microsoft Office is good.""Offers great flexibility.""The solution is quite helpful and allows me to conduct my affairs from all over the globe within moments.""It is the best solution in terms of space, file sharing, and live editing. I can share and edit files with multiple users.""The solution is easy to use.""Dropbox allows me to organize files well. I can name files in such a way as to lead students to the right destination.""The solution is easy to use."

More Dropbox Pros »

"It's more open than Microsoft and easy to use.""The solution's technical support is very good.""The product can scale easily.""The implementation was very easy.""It's a secure solution that enables you to choose those you wish to share with.""In terms of email, I could probably do the same things with other programs, however, I find 90% of my usage is Gmail.""When it comes to email, Google has a very good anti-spam engine or solution. We get very less spams. We don't have to use an external anti-spam solution with this.""It's certainly easier to meet. We have offices around the world and the ability to have a company meeting on Google Meet platform makes it a whole lot easier to actually have everybody virtually in one room at the same time."

Cons
"It could be more secure.""It would be good if they could market themselves as a safe solution for corporates. Currently, most corporates don't see it as a safe area to share within.""We are moving to Microsoft Teams. Instead of Dropbox, we will be using Microsoft Teams that has the advantage of saving the versions. It supports file versioning so that you can always go back to the previous version if you want to. If somebody has made a change in one of the files and you don't know what changes have been made, you can always go back to the previous version. This feature led us to migrate to Microsoft Teams. With Dropbox, there is no option for simultaneous work. This feature is there in Google Files. In Microsoft Teams, you can invite team members to collaborate. That is the reason why I prefer Microsoft Teams over Dropbox. It should also have more integration with other solutions.""Dropbox could make the installation and the log of what has changed in a file easier. Showing logs could be more accessible.""If someone manages a large amount of data, they will need more storage, which they must purchase.""The solution could be more scalable.""There could be better integration with other solutions, such as Microsoft Office 365 for more collaboration. At the present time, it is more focused on its own internal systems.""The product could always offer more storage."

"We've had difficulty using PowerPoint files in G Suite. PowerPoint has some functions that are not available in G Suite, so when you convert from PPTX to the Slides format, they don't work.""Google Meet is a very good product, but it's not up to the mark if you compare it against other products like Zoom or Microsoft Teams.""Better integration without visual misrepresentation with the Microsoft suite is required.""When I compare with Office 365, G Suite has fewer features.""The cost could be improved. It can sometimes be a bit confusing figuring out how we are actually being charged.""There could be more options in Google G Suite. They can include HD calling for Google Meet. The layout portion in the calendar for Google G Suite can be better designed. When we get into the calendar and start scheduling meetings, we do have few hiccups here and there. The layout can be a little easier. People from different backgrounds are finding it a little bit tough to understand. It should be more intuitive. At the moment, it has a completely white background. To do power saving, it would be good if they can release a darker background. There are a few issues with the formatting of Google Docs when they get converted to Microsoft docs. It would be amazing if they can resolve it in the next release.""For Google Docs, if you upload a Word document up to Google Docs, it could mess up your formatting quite a bit.""The price could be reduced."

Pricing and Cost Advice
"The solution is expensive.""We pay a monthly subscription fee.""Its price is quite cheap. It is quite competitive. You just need to pay for the license. There are no additional costs.""We pay for the license yearly.""A basic version of Dropbox is available for free with a paid subscription from Microsoft.""The amount of free space they provide is sufficient for me. However, if you want more space I don't believe is very expensive.""It has some free features, but for some of the features, you need to pay. If you need more storage, then you need to pay. Its licensing probably is on a monthly basis.""The solution is purchased on a subscription basis, and there are purchasing options. If you purchase annually there is a discount."

More Dropbox Pricing and Cost Advice »

"It's about $8.30 up a user per month.""Licensing costs are on a yearly basis.""2,500 Rupees per month per user.""Approximately $6 per user, per month.""The main challenge regarding startups with identity services is you could be on a platform that works well but the services are expensive. For example, Microsoft Azure costs approximately $30 per user which is expensive. You end up choosing a different platform, such as G Suite Enterprise because it is priced reasonably and is less expensive than other solutions.""It's low in cost as compared to Office 365. There is an annual licensing cost.""We normally purchase the license on a yearly basis.""The pricing is very high, although I cannot tell if this is the result of the Indian vendors artificially inflating it."

Overview

Dropbox provides cloud-based file syncing, sharing, and storage. It specializes in helping large-scale businesses stay organized and productive while protecting the integrity of sensitive information with enterprise-level security. Dropbox is a valuable solution for businesses looking to simplify communication, safeguard information, and improve collaboration. Dropbox's platform provides a user-friendly, real-time sharing and storage solution for large businesses. The company's enterprise-level service plan includes 256-bit AES and SSL encryption, an optional two-step verification process, and optional mobile passcodes, which provide tight security to protect sensitive information. Dropbox uniquely offers a remote wipe feature, which allows businesses to keep data safe when an employee leaves the company or a computer is lost. Dropbox stands out from the competition by offering businesses expanded storage, unlimited file recovery and versioning, and control over sharing permissions. Additionally, Dropbox provides businesses with team management solutions, including device and location tracking, login tracking, detailed user management options for administrators, and centralized billing. Collaboration between team members is further simplified with the addition of various Dropbox apps that allow advanced functionality such as document editing, CRM, and e-signatures. Dropbox has become one of the most popular business tools, entrusted by 97 percent of all Fortune 500 companies. Before implementing Dropbox, global apparel merchandiser BCBGMAXAZRIA was struggling to structure communication and increase company-wide efficiency, which resulted in the need for increased staff hours and expenses. Since choosing Dropbox as its cloud-based sharing and storage solution, BCBGMAXAZRIA has been able to restructure its file sharing and collaboration streams in every department. As a result, BCBGMAXAZRIA is able to boost efficiency, reduce expenses, and protect its information throughout all 550 locations.
