What is most valuable?

I would say the most valuable feature is that it is a Microsoft product so it is well integrated with Excel, Word, PowerPoint, and all the other products in the Microsoft suite. In OneDrive, when you use Excel, Word, or PowerPoint it… more »

How has it helped my organization?

OneDrive has improved our organization by making things faster. People do not have to use email anymore for file transfers because communications and collaborations are handled via OneDrive. Instead of sending attachments to different… more »

What needs improvement?

Syncing is one area that can be improved. When you click on sync on the online version, what happens is that it creates a drive on your desktop. Basically, it is like you have the online version directly on your desktop. Syncing has been an… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We did previously use Box in our company. The reason we switched from Box was not that there was any problem with the functionality. It was just a money-driven decision. If everyone has a Microsoft license and they have OneDrive included… more »

What other advice do I have?

If they fixed all the little things, it could be a great product. It pretty much is a great product already. The integrations are still good. Initially I was really amazed. But then I got to know its many bugs and glitches and I have to… more »

What is most valuable?

The streamlining that an organization gets when using the solution is great. It saves a lot of space on the desktop because all of the files are in the cloud and don't need to be downloaded.

What needs improvement?

I don't know if it's already available, however, being able to set a period for which files can be available to people you share them with before the permissions disappear would be quite helpful. A separate interface to give users a summary… more »

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

We have previously used Dropbox. However, it wasn't great for streamlining services.

What other advice do I have?

We're using the latest version of the solution. It's constantly updating itself. A user doesn't have to go and manually update the solution. We use this solution on a daily basis and quite extensively. Most organizations need to try it out… more »

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

We didn't evaluate another solution. I had already used Google privately and decided it was a good one to use to streamline and switch over to.

What is most valuable?

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

What needs improvement?

The synchronization should be simplified. Other solutions like Dropbox and OneDrive have apps. I tried using the mobile version, but it didn't work properly, that needs to be improved. It was cumbersome. It's a good solution for a small organization like ours, but it really depends on your use-cases… more »

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Amazon WorkDocs is not expensive. It's cheaper compared to similar products on the market.

What other advice do I have?

I would definitely recommend this solution to other potential users. People only know of It because it is included with OneDrive. The marketing should be better, but I would definitely recommend it. On a scale from one to ten, I would give Amazon WorkDocs a rating of eight. If their mobile version… more »
