I use Box with an external team or two. Where it gets a little challenging for us is that we produce a lot of photography video files and it’s hard to find a content management system that’s large enough (Dropbox can’t store them). We need a robust photography management system that is cost efficient.

It works pretty much the same as Dropbox, and integrates with Slack. It also has a team collaboration feature but it's not real-time and not very useful.

Box was a better tool for team management and privacy settings.
Founder & CEO - Glass-U
We used to use Dropbox but we got a better deal with Box so we switched. They are both good tools. We do not use Drive for storage, aside from collaborating on sheets and docs.
Co-founder & CEO - Periscope
We are still on a free plan for Box. It tends to break when you try to integrate it via API.

We use Box. I do not like Google Drive because I think that it is better to work on a directory structure. Box is similar to Dropbox but it’s more mature and has better security features. It is a better enterprise solution.
Co-founder & CEO - TravelPerk
Box is our primary tool for file sharing and management. We chose Box because it seemed like a better tool for the problems that we had. We have used Dropbox and Drive in the past, and decided we needed a more streamlined tool for our team to use. Box has been working out well.
CEO - ReviewTrackers
We use Box because our lawyers requested it. They feel that it is more secure. In there, we keep things like our diligence information, shareholder agreements, etc.
Founder - Andy OS
Box offers large, long-term file storage.
Co-founder & CEO - Opternative
We use Box for legal documents, since that’s what our lawyers use.
CTO - Expa
We use Box for highly-sensitive files since it’s more secure than Google Drive and because it isn’t as easy to accidentally share a file or folder with your whole company.
Co-founder & COO - Branch Metrics
I am really impressed with Box. Our law firm has forced us to use it, and I think it’s brilliant!
Founder & CEO - Good&Co
Box was a sponsor for a while, so they gave us a lot of space. We store all of our large files in Box.
Co-founder & Co-director - Boomtown Accelerator
We signed up for Dropbox and Box, but we mostly only used them when we were fundraising, and we were sharing documents with investors and lawyers. We still use both sporadically, but more for high-value company documents, like board agreements and our company charter.
Co-founder - Kinnek
All of our file hosting is on Box. We leave all of our assets there and all of our legal documents and contracts are kept there as well. I don’t like it too much, but it is more secure than Dropbox.
Founder & Head of Operations - Wheelhouse
FloQast, a tool we use to help us close our books faster, is integrated with Box, instead of Dropbox, which is the reason we use both Box and Dropbox. I personally don’t have a preference for either one. But I can say that Box’s customer service is horrendous. When we switched plans, moving files was a big pain.
CFO - Makeable
Our lawyers needed Box for putting together data rooms because it has some enhanced features like notifications, comments and security. We really only use it for that purpose, though.
CEO - Katch
We've had frustrations with Box. They have UX issues, like files not syncing properly or not updating. We picked it because it has a way of providing a secure upload link for customers. But they have problems, and we’ll probably be moving away from it soon.
Founder & President - Upraised Learning
We ended up going with Box because we already had personal Dropbox accounts, and we found it confusing to try and go back and forth between the ‘personal’ and ‘business’ folders. It was easier to use Box for the company and keep Dropbox personal.
Co-founder & CEO - Zapier
... it became cost-prohibitive with the amount of sharing we were doing with our partners.
