Pros

It is a fantastic product and its security features give our business confidence to be in compliance with all regulations we are required to follow.
I like the simplicity and good features and the appropriate speed of Box platform, you can easily transfer files from any device to the cloud storage space of the box.
The interface of Box is great, and it is my favorite of the primary file-sharing platforms. Upload times seem relatively fast and sharing links with people outside my organization is great.

Pros

I liked M-Files because of the ability to organize company files in a secure location. I used M-Files to fully store my Tax program in my previous position, and loved everything about it.
The setup for workflows is amazing and easy to do. It uses a graphical interface that is fun to experiment with but at the same time powerful and highly customizable.
It will be the best money you spend and will save you the cost is saved searching in weeks.

Cons

Sadly it does not work on my kindle Ir the android tablet I had. With everything going mobile these days, you would think they'd be compatible by now.
This product has very limited functionality in some areas which could be a bit frustrating at times.
The organization of Box is awful, but this could be my company's fault.

Cons

It creates synchronization problems in places where the internet connection is not reliable and there may be version problems.
What I dislike about the M-Files is User interface quite diffuclt to get used. They need to impove as well.
Also you does not find files sometimes because you need to put keywords but you may forgotten.

Box makes my life better.

Reviewed 3 years ago

I love being able to access my files (and others' files) from anywhere. I feel safe with my files being stored on Box.

Pros

Box is so easy to use. One of my favorite features is Box Notes. Being able to collaborate easily on meeting notes in real-time and then save it in a place everyone has access to is great.

Cons

The only thing I have had a little trouble with is sharing a folder with an external collaborator. I have had multiple people come back with confusion on how they are supposed to gain access.

Functional file sharing across the enterprise.

Reviewed 6 years ago

Easy access to files everywhere. Sharing files is easy just might take a little patience.

Pros

I mostly like that we have all of the files synced on our box drive so we can access them anywhere. This is so convenient when working out of the office or just away from my desk. I can get all of my files, presentations, everything, on the go, including mobile.

Cons

I least like how it seems to take a long time to sync and I don't seem to have much control on how to prioritize this. I would like to share a file, but it may not be ready to share for some time.

My entire office repository can be saved seamlessly on Box. Also, I can share any files instantaneously to any of the team members who need them urgently.

Pros

The ideal place to secure my repository is Box. The crucial backups are safely stored in Box and readily available when it is needed.

Cons

The uploading of large files in Box is extremely frustrating. I can seamlessly upload small files but uploading heavy files takes enormous time to upload.

Its good platform to share files but not to access those files without downloading them.

Pros

It allows you to share pertaining files with a particular group of people or team just with a link. And we can customize their authority to view or edit the document.

Cons

It's very slow when it comes to access shared files without downloading them. Like to access a PDF file it takes more time than the time to download it.

Reliable and great for sharing files with others.

Reviewed 5 years ago

Our files are secure, and we can easily share files with people within and outside the company.

Pros

You can share files and folders easily with others. A great way to collaborate with colleagues! Has a pretty easy search feature when searching for files - helpful when looking for pdfs or box notes only. Easy to upload and download documents. I like that you can Box Notes to take notes, directly from Box. You can upload multiple versions of the same document, while maintaining version history....

Cons

In Box Notes, the formatting features are limited. For example, there are only a few font color options (9), 4 text types (title, subtitle, body, small), and there are only so many columns you can insert when inserting a table. Box has fewer features than Google Drive, but that might work depending on your organization's needs.

Perfect for Storage & File Sharing in the Office

Reviewed 5 years ago

Box has helped me organize my files and distribute files. It’s especially great for all my photos that don’t fit on my phone. The mobile app lets me access everything on the go, which is perfect when traveling for work!

Pros

Box is a great deal as it allows for a lot of free storage. Items can sync automatically from my computer to my Box cloud. It’s also an efficient file system to share files around the office because it doesn’t require people to have a box account to view and download files

Cons

Collaborative folders can be tedious to keep organized and uploaders often have trouble navigating the files, deleting files, and downloading files. The collaboration aspects could be simplified more to ease use.

Box review

Reviewed 6 years ago

It's a great way to store, organzie and share files. It's nice knowing that files are backed up securly in the cloud and I don't have worry about losing anything if my computer were to crash. Overall, it's a nice platform that our entire firm uses to manage client files and internal files.

Pros

We use Box at our consulting firm to have shared folders with our clients. I like that you can send a shared invite to a client, and it's more secure than exchanging documents via email. I also like that certain people can have access to certain subfolders, which is very helpful when working with multiple people in an organization.

Cons

Sometimes clients get confused when you send them the link to accept an invitation to a shared Box folder. A few have been unsuccessful in accessing my shared folder, but it's usually my least tech-savvy clients.

Stick with the Box

Reviewed 4 years ago

Overall, I'd recommend my other coworkers to use this software, since you can organize files, adjust user permissions, and store confidential files.

Pros

I like how Box is better than DropBox. You can seamlessly store files and send them to your colleagues. You can also update user permissions, so you won't have to worry about someone having the wrong access to certain files.

Cons

I don't like how it may take a longer time for uploaded videos and documents to process. During this process phase it takes a longer time to retrieve and download files.

Out of the box experience

Reviewed 7 years ago

Mfiles comes with features out of the box that get you started but the real value comes once you start modeling your business processes utilizing the functionality of the core software. I have been very successful at modeling our business processes using the software. I am always amazed with what I can do with it. You can do a lot by simply configuring the software and even more if you want to write a little code. I am very happy with the software and would recommend it to others. Don't expect it to be tailored to your business out of the box though. To leverage it you have to get into the Administration functions and then you can roll out the solutions to your users.

Pros

The fact that I can define a solution with the software that fits our business.

Cons

I think the professional services are expensive and cost prohibitive. That is not a problem with the software but it is a problem if you want to leverage the product. You really need in house expertise if you want to get what you need from the software.

Great Software. Poor Support

Reviewed 7 years ago

I love the concept of M-Files. They do tend to overpromise and then fail to support. We were told several things were out of the box. The support staff was extremely painful setting up and then allowing external folks to still have access. With security in mind I have been unable to limit a users security to a class and project as designed. If they improve their communication, training and customer service I believe this software will go far. It is a little expensive.

Pros

Attaching metadata to documents. Importing objects from external sources. Views are nice but limiting. I have not been able to fully test workflows, but they seem promising

Cons

Support. Security

Vendor response
