    All in all, I am very happy with Dropbox. The best solution to work in team while editing documents. No need to send them to all team members. Also, the felling of security is very nice.

    Pros

    The most liked thing about Dropbox is that it works as a simple folder in my computer and I can easily create document, work on it, press save and it is automatically saved in the cloud and I do not need to think about it. This automatic function is very useful. Also, the drag and drop function is very good. This can be done with any document and my colleagues who are working on the same file can easily add their changes. Also, the storage size is quite impressive.
    Also, the recovery function saved me a few times. As far as I know, only Dropbox has this functionality which is so user friendly.

    Cons

    There was one update after which double pressing on the Dropbox icon would not open the folder view, but some other view, so I needed to press few times again in order to enter folder view. That was annoying.

    Alternatives Considered

    Google Drive

    Reasons for Switching to Dropbox Business

    The folder view - you do not need to open browser or anything. Just save the document which is created inside Dropbox folder and it automatically updates in the cloud.

    In our office, I use Dropbox Business to keep all of our documents in one location for our entire team. It's instrumental because we have records shared around the organization and files that are only used by my team. It's effortless to make a folder, upload it, and share it with others. It's also much more stable than other platforms when it comes to keeping track of sensitive data.

    Pros

    I like that it is straightforward to build a folder and share it with multiple people at once. It's also convenient to have all this set up from my own Control Panel files on my phone, so I can simply drag and drop files from my stored folders and transfer them into a Dropbox database. My organization is now using Dropbox, and the business account provides us with enough storage to hold all of our documents in one safe location.

    Cons

    It's not as complicated as Google Drive or any other online storage systems, but Dropbox Business doesn't have any of the same functionality, but it gets the job done. When there are so many people sharing stuff across channels, it becomes cluttered.

    Reviewed on 2024/05/22

    Pros

    Easy to add images, videos, and any docs. Easy to share folder with outside vendors which we do daily.

    Cons

    The only con would be pricing. Paying for additional logins (which I recommend so you can track). Pricing to add secure folders for legal and accounting.

    Outdated product - needs some upgrades to remain competitive

    Reviewed on 2019/12/10

    Overall, this is a great software option for companies to use if they don't need very robust...

    Overall, this is a great software option for companies to use if they don't need very robust security features (ie HIPPA/FERPA) options. It is very easy for multiple teams and companies to work together to house documents and see what version of the document they are looking at. The software is easy to sync up to a desktop and always ensure that the web version vs your desktop is the same. It is also easy to see comments and who updated the latest version of the document. The way that the documents are organized could use to some work, but overall, this is a good product that can house a lot of documents in the same place and are accessible via mobile and desktop in a very simple way. No set up is needed and no in depth tech knowledge is needed, which is a great option for any company to be able to allow anyone to administer the account.

    Pros

    The nice part about Dropbox is that it is pretty easy to use and has a free option if you are looking to use it for personal use. The software is easy to switch between mobile and desktop and has a pretty basic way to organize documents, pictures, etc in folders. It is also easy to share the docs/folders with a link or make them public, if needed. We utilize this software to share documents across multiple companies for different projects and house the different versions of the documents in a single place.

    Cons

    Security updates are lacking when compared to alternatives like Box. We need to keep a very specific set of security functionality for our documents in the higher education industry and Dropbox is not meeting the needs of our industry any longer; therefore, we have to be selective on what documents we are using the software for now. I am sure that Dropbox will update their security functions soon, but in the meantime, we have to be selective on what we use it for. Would be nice if you could organize documents in a different way to make it more efficient to find what you are looking for, as well as comments. I do like that you can see which version of a doc you are looking at right way; however, it is still a pretty old school mentality for organization and collaboration vs all of the other software out there now. This is a good repository to house documents (if it meets your security standards) but doesn't meet the ever changing needs of a robust collaboration tool that we needed it for.

    Dropbox Business: The Ultimate Cloud Storage Solution for Seamless Collaboration and Ironclad...

    Reviewed on 2024/03/21

    Pros

    Dropbox Business has been a game-changer for our company's file storage and sharing needs. With its intuitive interface and seamless integration across devices, collaborating on projects has never been easier. The robust security features give us peace of mind knowing our sensitive data is protected, while the generous storage capacity accommodates our ever-growing file library.

    Cons

    While Dropbox Business excels in many areas, one aspect that left me wanting was the limited file preview capabilities for certain file types. As a design agency, we frequently work with large graphic and video files that can't be easily previewed within Dropbox itself. Having to download these large files locally to view them interrupts the otherwise smooth workflow.

    Additionally, the desktop and mobile apps could use some performance optimizations. At times, they can feel a bit sluggish, especially when syncing changes across multiple large files simultaneously. A more streamlined experience would enhance the overall user experience.

    Lastly, while the pricing is competitive, it would be great to see more flexibility in the plans offered. Some smaller teams may find the current tiers too restrictive or costly for their needs. Introducing more granular storage and user limits could broaden Dropbox's appeal to businesses of all sizes.

    Despite these minor gripes, Dropbox Business remains a powerful and exceptionally well-rounded solution that has immensely improved our team's collaboration and file management capabilities.
