Box offers user-friendly file-sharing but faces big competition

Juan Carlos Perez | May 28, 2013
The cloud storage service is an intuitive collaboration tool and has IT-friendly features. However, it's in a crowded, competitive market that includes Microsoft.

He says Box's user-friendly interface has helped spur its adoption.

"We keep Box organic. We don't force it on people. Our end users find it and come up with ways to use it, sometimes in ways that surprise me and our CIO," he says.

Andersen says Box works well on desktop computers via the Web interface and on iOS devices via its mobile app. He also likes the IT administrative features such as single sign-on and enterprise directory integration.

However, he also says he would like Box to add more integration hooks to on-premise storage systems, and to develop native, complementary applications for tasks like note-taking, task management, presentation sharing and PDF editing.
