"I am amazed at his perfection"

What do you like best?

The service provided is quite good and very easy to use, I just have to store in the folder that is created on the desktop all the information that I want to synchronize in the cloud

With box notes it allows me to create calendars, project plans and some other shared documents to keep others on track

The security of box there is no possibility that it fails or that something is wrong for its SSL encryption I am sure that all my information is in a safe place and that I have no fear that I will be damaged some of my documents

Its variety of prices I like because I can choose and change plans when I want because I do not have contracts that oblige me to be with the platform

What do you dislike?

As administrator of the account I have noticed that you can not have a record of the deleted documents and know which user removes some document that is important and that can not be recovered, there should be a control or a permission before removing any document because this affects the work of others

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

Your good model of uploading all the information you want to share with others does not have to be sending emails, with the information uploaded in the cloud is enough for other members to enter Box and choose the information or document they need to work either in group or personal

"Safe and fast storage with Box"

What do you like best?

Box is the program that we use in our work team to send documents to our employees, customers and we even ask for resumes that are hosted in Box for faster viewing or downloading. It is an excellent program, one of the best in its class, it has also been great to use it to make backup copies when we have run out of space in physical storage disks.

What do you dislike?

At the moment the only thing we do not like is the little storage space they offer in their free plan, as we believe that this can be improved because other third-party programs offer much more. We have also found a problem when editing simultaneously, because when one of the editors wants to save the changes they may not be saved correctly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to store files, multimedia content, documents, make backup copies, work as a team, synchronize files from your mobile or computer, Box is the program that we can recommend you use.

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

Box has helped us a lot to do team work when we are not in the same place, it is very easy to synchronize and upload the files or documents from our computer to the cloud. We have also worked comfortably with the mobile application, something that we think is very good because it is not mandatory that we are on the computer to view the documents. For us Box is a great program.

What do you like best?

Box is a great tool that allows us to share files and documents which is the main reason why we use it, in our work team we have to send documents and files constantly and Box allows us to do it online. It is very easy to use, we just have to upload a file to the cloud and then with a link we can share the access, the visualization and the download of it.

What do you dislike?

So far we can mention that we do not like your weight limit to share multimedia files, we believe that something that can be improved and even more in payment plans, also the limit of storage space for free accounts, since there are other third-party programs that can offer much more.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you do not have more space, you want to work remotely, you need to send a document to someone far away or you need to make backup copies, BOX is the program that we are going to recommend you to use.

"All content in one place"

What do you like best?

It allows me to upload my files in the cloud to have an accessible backup from any site and device that has encrypted secure storage also offers link for file exchange

I publish documents in the cloud that I can download in any site facilitating my way of working and waiting times because I do this quickly when downloading and uploading the file again with the edition that I made

What do you dislike?

Sometimes when downloading a document that is in excel format, it alters the size of each box causing it to change it manually, which takes time and does not remain as it was originally and it will be noticed that the boxes were modified

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

Apart from doing my job more efficiently I can work in a team sharing the easy documents so that the work members can visualize what has been uploaded in the cloud and thus download what is needed to complete tasks or avoid having so much physical document that causes more disorder and all that paper one day will be thrown damaging the planet instead so virtual is more beneficial to have a better order

"good tool for backup of files in the cloud"

What do you like best?

Box is a tool that I like because in addition to offering different versions according to the needs of the user, it offers the option of implementing it for free for a limited time but allowed me in certain times to back important information in a safe way without having to go to emails , so I consider it a nice software for loading and accessing documents.

What do you dislike?

Is a good tool with great benefits and opportunities both individually and as a team, however I consider that a limiting aspect for its use is that it has versions that limit the loading and storage of files, which would be better if the selected plan is it was unlimited.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it because it is a tool that provides free access online, for small businesses it is a good option for the backup of files and documents of utmost importance keeping them organized in folders, also allows to store any type of file and access it easily at any time and place from our computers, phones or tablets.

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

This tool gave me the opportunity to protect documents of great personal and work importance, giving me the benefit that the previous versions of the documents could be saved automatically, it is an excellent option to access the files at any time. undoubtedly I think it helps to eliminate anonymity as to who sees, downloads and edits the shared documents as it allows to know who is accessing them.

"Ample storage."

What do you like best?

What I like most is that I can store all kinds of files and in relatively large sizes, because now the storage capacity has improved, I also have access to my files from any device. I can organize all my work by folders and I am very happy with the security that this tool gives me. It also has a free version, which although limited, has many benefits. I have used it for a couple of years and I have no complaints that affect the performance of this storage.

What do you dislike?

Although it is an excellent tool for storing jobs, its capacity is limited and if you want more storage space in the cloud, you must pay for it. Another thing I do not like is the inability to access my files when I do not have access to the internet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As an auxiliary tool I highly recommend it, it is organized, with a good degree of security and you do not need to invest money to obtain it, unless you want to expand your storage spaces. It is also very good to share files with other people who use the same tool.

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

As an independent accountant I need enough storage space to store my work, and not only that, but to have the option to share information with my clients at any time. This tool is very good in that aspect and so far I have not reported any extra expense.

"Solid service"

What do you like best?

Improves the content experience for customers, partners and employees that offers corporate level security and compliance with app standards

The security of all the content uploaded in the cloud is with extreme protection with management controls

The prices of all the plans are very economical, there are several to choose from and to know which one is appropriate according to the type of company in which you are

The watermark in the documents has been very useful for us to be plagiarized or another person to benefit from the work done by me.

I have all the collaborators that I want in an unlimited way to enter and work with them

What do you dislike?

The support service is more complete and more friendly by email than by means of a call, it seems to me because I try to call once and they are late in answering and the explanations are not the best, in the mail they give excellent information and explanation of what is asked

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

I upload all the content I want to the cloud without worrying that this information will be lost or that the storage quota will be filled because it is unlimited and it is a platform that helps me a lot because I can access documents anywhere that I have saved

"With Box I manage and store my files securely from anywhere"

What do you like best?

Box allows me to manage my files, images, documents, videos and more in the cloud with the best security I've seen, I can make my files known in general by all the members of my company without restrictions, they can also modify and update those files no matter where they are or the device they use. Thanks to the order that this useful tool allows me, my employees work better and more efficiently since they have everything in one place available 24 hours a day and wherever they are connected

What do you dislike?

It costs a bit to communicate with technical support, however it is something that can be improved over time, perhaps if we leave more suggestions could take it into account more quickly, apart from that I have no other complaints about this tool

Recommendations to others considering the product

We recommend using it for a small user group but it will be a bit expensive since the service charge for each user created in the main session, in that sense there is a disadvantage but more is earned than what could be lost with the investment

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

We wanted to have the files and other important documents for the company in one place so that they could be evaluated by all the authorized and pertinent people for their management, this is why we are using BOX. Now we are a little more organized and our employees work more efficiently, faster and more orderly than before, I think it's a bit expensive but it's worth it

We can easily store in the cloud and access our files from the browser or mobile application, it is also very easy to provide access to files or documents sharing a link and then the person who receives it can view the document before downloading it, without a doubt It is a very good advantage.

What do you dislike?

At the moment we are good with Box, we can only mention that sometimes the time of the session expires very fast or it seems that it does not detect our session and closes it and we log in again. But negative aspect as such of the program we have none, it has been excellent to use it for us at this time.

Recommendations to others considering the product

We recommend that you use Box to store and even create backups in the cloud if you have run out of space on your disk. Box is excellent for small or medium businesses and also for our personal use. We can use from your free 2 GB plan or your payment plans with more storage and features. We definitely recommend using it :D

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

Box has benefited us in the sharing and storage of files, both personal and work. It saves us time in synchronizing files in both your web application and your mobile.

It is a very innovative and practical tool for the work that makes us all be the same team and that can share information and content that is beneficial for all and that you can have all these documents in one place and access to they from the place where you are located does not matter if it is not in the same team where the original document was uploaded

The capacity of storage is unlimited, which fills me with calmness because I do not have to worry about filling up the storage and having to delete files that I may be using later.

What do you dislike?

The native integration with other app in the cloud charge additional storage fees is something that I dislike because I do not understand why they have to charge more when integrations are made with other app that would work in complement with box

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

All of us who have an active account in box can work as a team to make documents or edit them and have a work easier to do all in a group or simply if I want to show my files to other users so that it is read only

I can use it anywhere is what gives me the advantage of working in places like my home to save time at work and have greater productivity

The rest is a very good program to store and work in the cloud.

I love how well organized everything is and that I can access Box right from File Explorer. As well, I appreciate how easy it is to share vital files with outside customers and companies without having to go through hoops.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that when you're using the Web version, it's not as easy to view files and previews. When you click into a file, a side bar pops up that, while it contains helpful info, there's no way to minimize and can be distracting.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This tool is really great for those with workers in different locations (either due to multiple locations or remote) and if you work closely with outside companies (agencies, customers, etc).

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

If it wasn't for Box, we would have no way to share files both internally and externally. As well, we like how easily this cloud-based service integrates into our work computers so that uploading and downloading files isn't a hassle anymore.

"Box is a great storage software"

What do you like best?

I really like how easy box is to use and it has more than enough space for all my files. I really like how I can have Box sync set up on my computer and it makes it really easy to sync files onto it without the hassel of having to login to the internet every time. I also really like how it is available on phones and tablets as well so I can carry all of my files with me everywhere I go.

What do you dislike?

The handwriting portion of box does not work as well as one note or other apps on tablets and phones so I tend to gravitate to those when I want to hand write

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try out Drive and OneDrive to see how they are or use all of them combined, but know that box is a really great option

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

Box is similar to Google drive in that you can share documents and edit them together

"Superb Cloud Based Storage and Management"

What do you like best?

Having utilized other services similar to Box, I must admit that Box certainly receives a spot on my top 3 list of services to use for cloud-based file storage. As Box is an intricate part of our organization, it presents with a clean user-interface, easy accessibility, streamlined file management and intuitive capabilities that allow ease-of-use and expedites methods of adding collaborators and sharing documents securely.

What do you dislike?

It's difficult to come up with rationale as to the disadvantages of using Box, however; the services that Box offers are versatile and presents its users and collaborators with an incredibly easy means of securely sharing data and limiting files and folders viewability. Therefore, I'm unable to speak to any disadvantages of using Box.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Box offers an incredible service with a companion mobile application for easy access on-the-go. I would recommend this service to any business with an intent on securing safe online file storage and management.

"Everything You Need In One Place!"

What do you like best?

I like that I can share all my documents with my coworkers and also start new Powerpoint, Excel, and Word documents on Box and have others collaborate. Box adds extra privacy settings to make sure things are as private as possible. It makes it simple to go back and find the things you need simply by typing in keywords. You can surf through thousands of files in a matter of seconds.

What do you dislike?

It's hard to access it when it comes to having a fluid workflow. If I am working on a file I have to manually upload it every time I am working on something. It can be disruptive unlike you clicking "Save" and its housed in your desktop. I also think there can be some room for updates to the organization of the folders in Box. I feel sometimes things get lost within because of the lack of spacing and organization of time, title, or file size.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Box is simple and accessible. It is best for big organizations.

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

Privacy was a big issue for our institution and moving to Box creating extra protection to files consisting of student confidential information. Also, solves the problem of losing your work in Google drive or needing to log in another type of email to access the documents. We used to use a "shared" drive through servers though, the problem was we could not access files unless we were at work, which made working remotely extremely difficult. By shifting to Box people are able to access their files wherever they are.

"Share ideas at any time"

What do you like best?

The function of Box Note I can use it on any device to share the ideas of projects shared with my co-workers in an instantaneous way so that everyone can visualize and create suggestions according to the project

All the information uploaded to the cloud is safe without problems that is going to delete or lose something so important that you can have the complete tracking of the activity of each user

All the prices of the plans that it offers are very affordable to be able to buy besides that the storage is unlimited something super good not to be worried about that the storage is filled

What do you dislike?

I do not find bad in the platform, all the functions have worked very well and they have never failed me for performance or something goes wrong everything is very complete and every time they do updates that serve more and more to improve the server or add new functions and expand of the icons the plans

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

All the information is safe, it is more secure than having it on the computer or on any device because there is a virus or cyber attacks that could damage the information but with a box it is very safe in the cloud

you have a more productive performance because it joins the information in a single system causing everyone to enter in a simple and group

"A good cloud file storage service"

What do you like best?

Box is a tool to store our files in the cloud efficiently and quickly. What impressed me most was the loading speed of the files. In less than 1 minute save almost 1 GB of information, far above other services. It offers in its free version 5 GB of storage, a very tractive quantity but that does not allow to use all the characteristics of the service. Box is mainly aimed at the storage of business files, so the paid version offers better features and the ability to take advantage of all its features. With the paid version we have the possibility to work the files in collaboration with an unlimited number of members of the team, as well as to increase almost unlimited storage capacities.

What do you dislike?

The free version is very limited in terms of functionality, since we can not work in collaboration with other members of our team, so you have to pay to take advantage of all its features and although its 5GB of storage is good, other services in the cloud offer more quantity

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recommended service for being easy to use, for its storage capacity in its free version and its benefits in its paid version that are very useful for companies

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

For being a service with great benefits for business use due to the great features in its paid version, we are going to increase the level of service in order to be able to do collaborative work among the members of my team. Even in its free version it offers a great performance and a surprising speed of loading files and we have been able to store a large amount of documents in a very short time.

"Convenient way of file sharing and collaborating"

What do you like best?

Box is a great solution for sharing and editing documents among team members. The best side of Box is compatibility with office documents which increases productivity and saves our time while working with office documents. I can create any office document inside Box app very easily. Especially mobile version of Box is very handy when I am travelling. I can create, share or add collaborators to existing document in a seconds no matter where I am. In similar platforms you need to install additional software in order to view or edit office documents. But with Box there is no need for such softwares.

What do you dislike?

The only drawback of Box is internet connection requirement for viewing documents which I already uploaded to the Box cloud. Sometimes I delete original documents from my phone and keep them in Box cloud. But if there is no internet connection I can't preview or edit such documents. "Save for offline" feature of Box is a great solution for this problem, but after using this feature my phone memory gets full.

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

After using Box we managed to share our ideas more faster and easily. Productivity and creativity also increased while editing any kind of document. Box provided us flexibility and convenience while editing or sharing documents.

"Box the best place to store"

What do you like best?

Box is a very good platform to upload, save and share files, documents, photos and videos. It is excellent for backing up in the cloud if you do not have a physical storage device. You can easily and quickly share any file or document that you have in Box with just sharing a link or allowing access to specific users.

What do you dislike?

This program honestly does not have big problems, I can only mention that when editing a document, if several people edit it at the same time a conflict can be generated and it may be that when saving the edition it is not finished or only doing it in parts thus losing a bit of information from one of the editors.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend using Box if you need to keep your files and work documents stored in the cloud and have access anywhere, also for personal use and especially if you want to share them in a quick and easy way. And in case you have a small or large company, you can implement this tool in the CRM of your company and your employees can upload and share the information they need to use.

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

It is very beneficial to use this program to share files or your resume for example, in my case I use it mainly for that reason, I have a page where our projects, works, designs and especially my resume through a link of Download from Box. It has also been essential to be able to share the files of the work I have done. The best thing is that I can connect from the main page or using your application on my mobile something that allows me to be up to date with my work anytime, anywhere.

"Files in the cloud"

What do you like best?

All the files, images and videos that I have on my computer I keep in the cloud with box because I am sure that my files will not be lost and they are also safe so that we can work as a team and can access the documents that I allow and can share or edit

I also upload the files to the cloud to eliminate space on my PC hard drive and so my computer has a lot of space

It allows me to have the rights of administrator and have the ability to know who accessed the document to share and edit it with that if there is any claim of the edition is going to know which user did it

What do you dislike?

the storage would be much better if it were unlimited or they had a plan where it was unlimited and did not pay separately to enlarge the storage space with that would not have to delete files

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

The work has been made easier because we can interact with different files among our colleagues and edit it or finish some file that needs something, each person from the site where you can enter the platform and download the file without any problem

"Secure files"

What do you like best?

I can access all the documents loaded in the cloud from any device

the use of sharing or editing files makes possible the loss of data that can sometimes occur when we enter to correct a document and what they do is damage it, so it is better to put restrictions so that anyone can not modify. Files or put encryption keys to have the most secure and reliable documents

The price plans are economical for everything they offer with the option to add complements that are necessary or missing to complement the purchased plan

What do you dislike?

The speed of the server to load documents, files, photos, music and other works is not very good it takes a little time for everything to load in the cloud

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

We can all enter the document that is needed and if you have permission to share and edit, you can do so and improve the document or just visualize it

Helpful?
