Company Name: Box
Headquarter: United States
Overall: I don’t see any reason to change to another product or service, so long as the price remains competetive.
Pros: Box excels at one thing — making documents accessible from anywhere. This amounts to benefits of efficiency and freedom to work on the go. Being able to access from any machine, particularly on a phone where other services often fail, enhances my ability to address customer’s needs.
Cons: There’s no indication when a file is open by another user. This has led to multiple users editing a document, and those documents don’t merge well or at all, leaving a red exclamation point indicating there’s an issue or an alternate file. We’ve lost some work this way. As a small company, this is manageable with clearer communication between employees, but I foresee this being an issue as we grow.
Pros: Box has lots of integrations, which makes it easier to work with it within other tools without having to visit it in a browser. Outside of that, the main reason to choose Box is its security features. The web interface is clean and highly intuitive. It still is loaded with features to customize it for your users in anyway you want.
Cons: The big downside I see is the speed. This may be due to the level of security configured, but it’s noticeable. There are also some UI design issues that require way too many clicks to get to what you need. However, these are for very infrequently used settings (such as finding out storage usage).
What do you like best?
I like that you can share documents, excel, PowerPoint, etc., all through Box and have it be in one single place. Being able to use it as a protected place to store documents is also great and I feel safe knowing that my documents are secure. Other websites do not provide this feature for cloud storage type sites. Working in the healthcare field and having some information that may contain private information, it is comforting to know that BOX requires 2-factor authentication within our company’s website.
What do you dislike?
I’m not too fond of that Box requires me to log in through two different avenues when editing. I believe this is because it has two-factor authentication, but I would prefer to click on a document and in the same window, it would allow you to begin editing it. I also would enjoy if Box allowed for color-coordinated folder organization on the main screen to help keep things more organized within folders, etc.
What do you like best?
Box makes collaboraiton seamless! With the current landscape, it’s important to collaborate efficiently and Box allows teams to do just that! Overall pleased with the software. I also like that the software offers all of the document formats that I work on and look for. I also like that there’s a notifications feature that let’s me know which updates have been made.

What do you dislike?
Version control would be the main feature that I dislike. At times, it becomes difficult to find the versioon that I am looking for. I also wish that the User Experience (UX) was a bit more reobust. At times I feel like the documents and information that I need can be hard to locate. When I need an important document, it has become challenging. Thinking about how this can get solved. I also dislike that Box can’t be a desktop app for neither my PC or my Mac
