I liked that box allows all users to upload to their system with secured password access. I also liked that files could be locked to prevent being deleted by other users either by accident or with intent. Finally, I liked that the folders could be accessed by multiple users at the same time.

Likes Least

I feel as though, for the price, there are other solutions for online storage. My employer used box for less than one fiscal year before moving on to another platform, and I would imagine that part of that change was because of price. The other piece is that this product is simply for storage - there isn't much other functionality. Other products out there allow multiple users to edit at once, and that's not what you get with the box platform.

Recommendations

Shop around before committing to this product, or at the very least, see if you can get a free (or low cost) trial period. That way you'll be able to determine if this product fits the needs of your organization or if you should potentially try another avenue with more bells and whistles instead.

Nothing really except when i mention it to someone they almost always say"you mean dropbox" and then i have to once again explain to them the it is not the same and Box is actually better

make sure you are looking at the right software. often the names are similar so it can be quite confusing at times. The best thing is to start with the correct URL

Having administrative area to manage our office team have made this tool valuable.
My HR manage all team members from the admin account and can see the reporting on the usage and other factors (I guess).
New people can be added from admin area and existing people can be deleted as well (As needed if someone leave the organization).

Likes Least

Would like to see more features within admin area. There could be a number of features (Including simulation for other users).

Recommendations

Great admin support to manage employees in an office. This tool can be managed within small businesses very easily. Worth to use this.

SugarCRM is no doubt, a complex CRM available within open source industry. Box provides a kind of plugin to attach files directly to Sugarcrm account area. Box API helps developers to see reporting on various aspects.

Likes Least

Can it be integrated with other CRM options including SalesForce and Pipedrive. It would be great if I can attach files to Pipedrive as well from Box account.

Recommendations

Good for SugarCRM folks. You can use your Box account to integrate with SugarCRM. Just google about it and you can find handful of info over this integration.

Their website shows 3 business plans, their compare plans page shows 4 plans, and then their customer service/support folks reference 5 plans. Their compare plans page, updated less than a week ago, does not accurately reflect the features on each plan. The moment you realize this, Box turns it into a sales upgrade opportunity to get you to a higher level plan.

Recommendations

Definitely use the trial period to fully understand the features available for a given plan before committing.

The search feature on the web based interface needs to allow for better customization. Also, the user interface should work more like Windows or at least have that option. I'd also like to expand the page per page result list to be longer. Box Sync is nice, but I have had files disappear when using it so it was recommended by our Help Desk team to work out of Box through Chrome, Firefox or Internet Explorer.

Recommendations

Look for systems which integrate more into the operating system.

Very easy to use, the sharing, protection and encryption of the files/folders is done very efficient. The best feature is the ability to open the .xls files from Box into your Excel and than have them updated in Box as soon as you click on Save in Excel!

Likes Least

Box seems to be a bit behind in terms of the graphic interface. While the other cloud storage providers have moved to a more 'light' experience, Box still seems to be caught a few years back.

Recommendations

Although the user interface seems a bit old, that might be because the folks at Box have focused on the functionalities of the product. For sure, the graphic aspect will be updated soon, so it is definitely a product to look at!

Box has been growing and a number of people find this helpful for their work. It has mobile extensions which make it easy to sync with various devices. File management is easy via their admin panel. I find this helpful for my files managements.

Likes Least

Collaboration features needs improvement for sure. I would like to share my files with colleagues and friends in real time but that features do not work fine for me. Not sure if this is an issue with my Mobil app but this needs some improvement.

Recommendations

Its good app for people who want to keep the files backup and want to retrieve it anytime in the future. Box seems to have secure servers and keep the content and files always available.
