"Easy to Navigate Cloud File"

What do you like best?

I like Box because you can access anywhere you have internet. Our business uses it all the time for our storage - eliminated file cabinets! We can share notes in the folders, notifications, easy to upload into. The other thing I like is that for personal use it has way more storage for a basic account than other cloud files. I also love the drag and drop feature.

What do you dislike?

There is nothing to dislike about box. :)

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I think Box Zones can be used for big and small companies. It has the ability to be accessible all over. Once you get trained in how to use it, it is very simple and self explanatory,

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Being able to collaborate. Ease of uploading, saving and accessing files. Creating folders right in Box.

"Very useful product"

What do you like best?

The storage and shareable aspect of the product. It allows me to store and share information to my colleagues across our many campuses. It will also then provide/create a history of all our information, which is very helpful.

What do you dislike?

I was a little worried I wouldn’t be able to figure out how to use it, but it is very easy to use. I was very hesitant to start, but very glad that I did.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I highly recommend this product, especially if you have employees working from different sites.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We use this for training and we also use it for storage for different groups across the university. It also allows multiple people to contribute, which is a very nice feature as well.

"Similar to Dropbox"

What do you like best?

Box is easy to use to share files and assets that can't fit in e-mail.I like that I can upload files quickly and instantly have a share link to send to colleagues, or I can send via e-mail directly from box.

What do you dislike?

I like everything about box. It might be unfamiliar to some people so they might be wary to open. Unfortunately my company uses Dropbox because it is more approved by our IT department. I think if box had more awareness, especially in a business sphere, it could generate a lot more clientele. Right now I think Dropbox is beating them in brand awareness.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

It's very similar to Dropbox so I would compare costs and see if your IT department approves either one for use as a company.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sharing large assets in an easy manner. Videos, photos, and files are easily uploaded and sent between users and non users. I like that not everyone needs an account to use this product. I also like that it's very straightforward, so even those who are not tech savvy can use it with no problems.

"Box Zones: Just another file service?"

What do you like best?

Box Zones ultimately allows you as a company to manage private and encrypted data, placed in the cloud, across country borders, fully adhering to data-protection and privacy laws in accordance to each country that is compatible.

What do you dislike?

It really just feels slightly outdated, even with the "collaborative" features that Box has put out recently.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Give yourself and your team ample time to "play" with the UI and the features before fully implementing Box Zones.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Data management across countries is definitely a huge benefit, especially seeing as how many of our clients do not reside in the United States.

I like the great ability of the application to have files in the cloud so that they can be viewed quickly and securely, as well as keep companies in contact and store information in a private and organized way.

What do you dislike?

I would like it to have more global expansion, since it does not cover all countries and also that there are not so many options for companies that are outside of these countries.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have solved security and privacy issues in my shared files and those I upload in the cloud.

Improve my productivity and my contribution thanks to this application.

"The Best Software for Our Company"

What do you like best?

We saw the most value from Box when we needed to collaborate files such as PowerPoints to external customers and partners. Box has a unique ability to allow to store files but also edit them in real time without having to download file, edit and repeat.

What do you dislike?

The pricing structure. My organization didn’t see the long term value of using Box according to their pricing model so we never adopted long term. We still suggest to our customers to use it so we can edit with them.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Obviously a big need for our customers is data protection and that’s what Box zones did for us. I can’t speak to more than that. It gave our customers ease to know we could share files safely.

What do you like best?

I work in real estate and box allows me to upload really large files that my company really relies on. There are many architectural drawings that we review in Box.

No problems just the cost to use ratio. It was beneficial for cloud sharing.
