Organizing your business so that everybody is on the same page can be a complicated task. With a plethora of options, from Basecamp to Asana to Dropbox and everything in between it’s hard to know the best way to streamline your business.
We recently discovered a mix between Google Drive, Dropbox, and Asana called Box. Box’s mission is to “Make sharing, accessing, and managing content ridiculously easy.”
Box offers a free account with 10gb of storage that allows you to upload your files to the cloud. They offer both a desktop and mobile app so that you have ability to view or files on the go.
The most attractive feature of Box is the ability to edit documents directly from the box interface. Other services such as Dropbox force you to download the document if you want to edit it, and then re-upload the document after you finish editing it. Google Docs allows you to edit certain documents but the editing process can be a pain and it doesn’t offer the flexibility and options that Box does. Also, no need to worry, Box runs securely with encrypted files.
Box key features:
- Automatic version control
- Open & save files directly from box without downloading the document
- Team comments for better collaboration
- Assign tasks to teammates
- Access Box from anywhere on any device
