Recommendations to others considering the product:

Primary benefit we get is sharing files through Salesforce, and being able to track and manage them. We began with this functionality, but the ease of using Thru and its ability to secure files has caused our company usage to continually grow. See above comment about having a usage policy early in your deployment! :) Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
