What Box Does Well
Users who gave Box a positive review like that apart from having a large amount of storage space and an intuitive user interface, it also allows them to send files of all sizes, securely and quickly, without encountering any issues. Others also commended the software’s flexible pricing plans for personal and business use.
“Box does a great job of making the entire platform intuitive and easy-to-use. The links that are provided can be customized to allow for non-internal project members to access files and this has greatly increased efficiency for my company. It is also very easy to filter and search what I am looking for when I am pressed for time. The best feature is being able to edit in real time and having the file update automatically.”
– Andy Gonzales, MBA
What Box Does Not Do Well
Users who gave Box a review commented that at times, they experience issues with saving and syncing their files. Others mentioned that they do not like accessing the platform on their mobile devices since it does not work as efficiently and as quickly.
“Similar to other companies, sometimes there are issues with syncing and saving files. I wish that there was a way to have multiple collaborators working on a single document at once. This could be a future area of improvement for Box.”
– Megan Flanagan
