Nobody know bout the product. When you mention it everyone assume you are talking about Dropbox, at that point you have to inform them that there is also BOX and that has more functionality.

Recommendations

before you deploy this product make sure it is still going to be around. At this point i am hopeful< but so many people still do not know it exists, even though it is a great product.

The lack of HD before it was announced. Now that HD was announced I think we will be able to use Box more for our digital department.

Recommendations

There seems to be a lot more tools from Box that most people do not see on the surface. Taking it for a drive sometimes really lets you see how you can apply it to your different departments.

Anywhere access to my files, from any device. It allows me to work the same way from the office, or anyplace where I have my computer or tablet.

Likes Least

Searching doesn't work if there is a lot of data and a lot of files have the same name.

Recommendations

Start with identifying the use cases that will solve the largest challenges, then get stakeholders that will help evaluate. Don't try and do it yourself. You need others to get buy in.

The Box team is very responsive and the platform has provided us with the ability to collaborate internally & externally with large files. We utilize Office 365 for email and run into issues moving large files to external partners, Box addresses that.

Likes Least

The password reset for SSO users. We have a lot of users that will have password reset's held up.

Recommendations

Look into the security of other products. This was a huge determining factor for us when looking at cloud storage platforms.

Product in general is solid. Areas to improve would be faster to market on things like workflow and watermarking. Also, getting client feedback into the development pipeline faster would be helpful.

Recommendations

Don't think of it in terms of sharing files, look at it from a platform perspective.

Don't underestimate the power of Box. They can do file sharing but have a lot of other powerful features like content management and governance.
