Box is okay

Reviewed on 2022/06/13

Pros

I like we were able to access files from wherever we wanted without having to portal remotely into our systems. I could even use my phone if I wanted too.

Cons

It was very hard to use and we have to do several training sessions with out IT program.

I have already shared my experience in detail in the Pros section. All in all its one of the most efficient and effective softwares. Wishing all the best to the team of Box.

Pros

Box has been a part of my professional life from past 3-4 years now. It was actually suggested by on of my colleagues and I just loved the utility of Box. I can use Box anywhere and on the go. When I'm out for meetings with my clients I can very easily share the relevant information even when I'm not carrying my laptop. Some of my overseas counterparts based in UK even use Box. So I would say it's a must have for industry professionals.

Cons

As of now I don't have anything specific related to Box that I dislike.

Great for file sharing

Reviewed on 2022/05/23

Pros

Box is a great tool for file sharing and makes sending links easy. It's user-friendly and I can't imagine sharing files any other way! Box is also reputable, as it's become the standard for file sharing in the industry.

Cons

If your files are large like ours (video files) the upload and download time from Box is quite long. To expand the cloud storage in Box is also quite pricey in comparison to similar products. Would also be great if Box could implement "review" links where users can leave comments directly on the file.
