Quotes From Members
We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use.
Here are some excerpts of what they said:
Pros
"The interface is very good.""We've never had a penetration. We've never had a security issue that their support didn't solve. We love their audit trail. We can know exactly when a collaborator opens. We love how you can define a collaborator.""Governance and ease of use are why I think a lot of people like Box, including ourselves. Basically, we're concerned about what information is being sent to Box, so we use a lot of the Box governance features to make sure that what is being sent to Box is appropriate. If it is not appropriate, it is not allowed to be sent. It is also pretty easy to use. It is the easiest to use for customers and for technologists.""Box is very user-friendly; more so than SharePoint.""Box is very realistic when it comes to sharing capabilities.""The collaboration of the solution is good."

Cons
"I recommend doing the trial first, because it's not cheap ware. It's not overly expensive, but it's not cheap ware, and enterprise has a minimum number of users.""I haven't really come across a case where we're not able to use it for what it is, so I don't really have anything holding us up or any customers holding us up at this point that I know of. There are always some limitations, but as a technologist, I just live with them, and there is always room for improvement, but I don't have anything quantifiable.""If you want to delete something in Box, you have to do it manually, one by one. That was my recent experience. They might have a bulk delete, but I could not find that option. If you want to delete something, you have to go to each and every file and delete it.""The integration with other products should be improved.""The UI should be faster. Sometimes it lags when switching between documents.""If there was a plugin that added some sort of toolbar in Office, that would be great."

"DLP features are lacking and required because, especially with everyone working from home, security is now paramount when the data is on BYOD devices."

Pricing and Cost Advice
  • "I believe Box is cheaper than SharePoint."
  • "They are very price competitive when pushed. Initially, they come out with a standard list price, but they are willing to be very competitive. The Box price was pretty much equal to or lower than the Citrix price, and Box has more features."
  • "There's a free version that allows you to use it with almost full-feature access. Even in the free version, it gives you all you need."
  • "We are using the free version of the solution. There is a free version and monthly and yearly subscriptions available."
