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

If you are a Microsoft fan or heavy user, then Share Point it is a good software for integration and share data and information between your people and clients.
I love how you can integrate Microsoft office. The large file support is great along with the ability to keep everything on your phone.
This software is great for the world of remote working and is a great solution to collaborating online. The program is user friendly and requires minimal training to understand.

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

Occassionally I will have errors when creating Sharepoint pages– such as the inability to change the column count, insert pictures, etc.
I would describe my overall expense as very poor and frustrating.
If there are too many documents that are not organized it can be hard to find what you need. I think that's mostly user error.

Box is a great alternative to Microsoft Sharepoint!

Reviewed 2 years ago
Pros

Box has a great user interface which is very straightforward and easy to use. We used to use Microsoft SharePoint before Box and did not have the greatest of experiences. We found SharePoint quite difficult to navigate and the set up and maintenance of the platform was very challenging. Upload speeds on Box are very fast and also the platform has customisable security features.

Cons

In Box you can create tasks for any document you have on the platform which is great. However one issue in particular which I find irritating is that lets say your colleague creates a task on a document which you share and at some point if you wanted to change the task due date or add other colleagues to the task, you can't do that. Only the person who creates a task can amend it. This is still the case even if you have multiple admins which is part of our setup currently.

It had fast upload and download speeds for accessing and managing large batches of files.

Did not ingrate how we wanted like Sharepoint does with other office applications and the migration from Sharepoint was too much of an undertaking to switch at this time.

Overall its a much better platform I feel for sharing then Sharepoint.

Pros

BOX is great for sharing information and large files, creating backup of information on to a network. It can mirror working off your harddrive where team members can then have access to the information.

Cons

Modifying file names or moving files around could be improved upon to be made even easier when sharing with organizing files.

Review on Microsoft Box

Reviewed 5 months ago

I used Box for professional Purpose, following the principles of my employer. I access to it daily

Pros

Instead of receiving many documents from.differents collaborators, I send them a template on Box, and each one fill their own section. At the end I have my document ready to review and submit for approval. I don't need to waste time by compiling many inputs from many sources.

Cons

I think some similar software like SharePoint are easier to use than Box.

Box has come a long way

Reviewed 5 years ago

Enjoy it - much more functionality than DropBox, and more control over sharing than Sharepoint.

Pros

Box ha s come a long way since the beginning - it has a lot of functionality, power, security, and uses. Uploads are fast and it's cool because you can choose who to share items with, even people without Box accounts (unlike Sharepoint). Videos display very nicely.

Cons

I wish it would let you 'host' websites on there. Sometimes you just need to be able to embed HTML and have someone view the page. If you are paying for Box, why can't you use it however you want? I also don't like how "Box Notes" is a separate page. It should be like a little lightbox pop-up that looks like a sticky.

Pros

Very easy to use, minimalist UI, and provides a great alternative to older file sharing platforms (eg Sharepoint).

Cons

The only reason I don't use Box more often is because I'm a Google guy, and Drive plugs in to all my Google accounts/data which makes transitioning between tools (Docs, Slides, Sheets etc) a lot more seamless than using Box.

A stripped-down version of better cloud-based document storage

Reviewed 5 years ago

This works well enough for my team to manage our files. I wish we still used SharePoint, though, as it had more features that we need.

Pros

You can share and collaborate with others in your organization, and invite outside collaborators into files, or whole folders. Each file has a direct link that you can send in an email or IM Version history for documents allows for you to look back at earlier copies in case of errors Multiple people can edit the same document at one time

Cons

The document links do not correspond to folder hierarchy, rather they are a random string of characters. This means you cannot see the folder structure from the link. Co-editing Excel sheets may lead to errors or corrupted files Web links are often identified by outside collaborators' email firewall as "unsafe" and emails are not delivered "Locking" for editing is only regularly possible from the web version. If you use the one in Windows Explorer, you will likely be unable to "lock" the document Some documents are randomly deleted or duplicated when glitches occur If editing online, documents are re-saved often and the "version history" only goes back a few minutes.

Excellent tool for cloud-based storage and collaboration

A great package overall and easy to get up and running with straight away, unlike a more complicated solution like SharePoint or a less business-oriented one like Dropbox.

Pros

I found the software to be excellent for backing up and sharing data and files between team members in a secure manner. Recently added functionality makes it easy to quickly open a file in the cloud on your local office applications.

Cons

Features like 'Box Sync' which sync local files with the cloud, can at times be buggy. I expect this to be cleared up soon.

Review - Box.com for Business

Reviewed 5 years ago

Box.com for Business provides business cloud storage and collaboration functionality. The service supports as few as three employees but can be scaled to a custom, enterprise-level plan for companies with hundreds of employees. Box.com (for Business) also provides solid document management (DM) capabilities and security features. The Business plan begins per user per month. It offers unlimited storage...

Pros

It provides enterprise level security and privacy features. It is a cloud based solution and a good collaboration software. It offers document management feature with storage. It is similar to O365 SharePoint platform.

Cons

Missing online editing functionality for external users. Because of a web based solution, the uploading or downloading deep folder structures can be painful.

Box - Not very good to work together and update documents

Reviewed 4 years ago

It was not very good. It is not difficult to use it individually, the problem is when you try to work together

Pros

It is safe. If you are working with Microsoft things get a little bit easier.

Cons

It is not easy to work together with colleagues and update documents at the same time. Therefore, many people end up downloading documents, updating them and then uploading the documents again. That is not practical at all. So inconvenient.

My least favorite features is anyone can change the document if the write on template and save instead of download to their computer.

aside for the point noted in the "Cons" box, the software has good prospects.

Pros

This app is good for communicating between your connections, I have particularly found this software useful in communicating to colleagues in school.

Cons

The software isn't really standalone as you have to install Outlook before getting access to it. They could make it stand alone for use and better access.

Cons

As of now I have nothing bad to say about SharePoint

Microsoft SharePoint helps get the job done

Reviewed a year ago

Good experience overall, really nothing bad to say about it. It's a necessary tool for many of our projects.

Pros

Microsoft SharePoint is super easy to use. It's a great tool to collaborate with others on. We can all contribute, edit, etc from the same folder in real time.

Cons

I like the interface, but think Box is slightly easier to navigate.

Great CMS

Reviewed a year ago
Pros

What I like about SharePoint the most is that a good Dot Net developer can customize it beyond what comes out of the box. Also, depending on your original install, updating, like with all Microsoft products is a breeze.

Cons

The only bad experience I have had with SharePoint was when trying to migrate from a single box install to a three box one. For best performance SharePoint should use three servers. One for the program and static content, another for the database, and the final one to run an index server. Migrating from a one box solution to a three box one was a nightmare and resource intensive. That was a few years ago, well...more than a few, however. If you have an Enterprise with a 1000 people or less, you could get by with a one box solution with a Intel i9 or Xeon CPU and 64GB of RAM.
