Business where it was used: Revenue: $10 - $100M, Industry: Software; mobile
Box is a good solution for managing all the Company files. We purchased the service because of it collaborative and secured environment. It works extremely well, however, it does have some challenges. First of all, because of the security, you are limited in how you share data to non-company users. For example, we had to create Internal and External folders so that any files exchange with non-company users must be under the Internal folders (due to permission settings). Second, using it with Outlook is a bit challenging because if you want to attach a file, you need to make sure that the permissions are properly set; otherwise the receiver can't access them. Finally, some of the cool functions (e.g., assign a task to a file) can only be done in the Cloud and not on your local disk. You end up going back-and-forth between the Cloud and your local drive which is sometimes a pain.
