Organized and accessible

Box allows us to work collaboratively with teammates all over the world, both inside and outside our organization. The workflow is very smooth and we are able to make live updates to documents we work with regularly. The experience has been very positive and a big improvement over what we were using previously

PROS

Box has great storage capacity and many useful tools for editing and syncing items. It's a very flexible, scalable tool

CONS

We rely on Box so much that on the few occasions that it has gone down temporarily, we have been stuck until it's come back online. The good news is that this has happened only once or twice in 3+ years.

Reasons for switching to Box

Cleaner interface, better user experience, more reliable & capable

Customers not important to box

Discontinuing service. See above.

PROS

Unlimitedspace. With no extra charge. Multiple file types supported

CONS

We had requested flexibility on our licenses since our staff increases and reduces between 90-100 people. Our admin accidentally added licenses before removing some leavers resulting in an accidental increase in the licenses. Box would not reduce the number by 3 licenses even though this was a clear mistake. They tried to make us pay for the remaining period of our 3 year contract. This resulted in a waste of several thousand dollars when we were in cost reduction mode. Canceling. There are many equivalent services with better customer support and lower pricing.

Reason for choosing Box

We will go ack to sharepoint.

We use Box mostly for document backup

Overall I am a big fan of Box and will continue using it. It has saved my bacon a few times and to be honest it's my backup against being hacked and my data ransomed.

PROS

Box has been great for us for years. It's mainly a backup tool but has saved us many times. We try to back everything up once a week. I also really like the mobile app. In the beginning I was using it all the time to transfer stuff back and forth to and from my phone and computer.

CONS

The only thing I really don't like about Box is the limitation of the file size for transfer. I know I might be petty but it can be an inconvenience when we have large files.

Reasons for switching to Box

Price and I liked the feature set Box offered many years ago. I don't know what the differences are now.
