Box for Business – An Overview

A number of consumers have found Cloud storage services like Box beneficial because of their ease of use. However, the benefits of cloud storage are not only limited to consumers. A number of businesses that have delved into this trend have already experienced some benefits of cloud storage services.

[adrotate banner=”35″]

Businesses generate volumes of files daily, which can pile up to tens or hundreds of gigabytes of files very quickly. Businesses also want to ensure that their files are secure. While traditional servers or storage hardware can answer this, most small to medium sized businesses could find the cost of purchasing and maintaining such hardware expensive. One of the popular cloud storage providers, Box, has been built for such need.


Box’s cloud storage service allows a quick drag-and-drop save and sync mechanism for storing files. Employees and their supervisors can save files into a synchronized folder. A team member can likewise share documents or files to external business partners as needed.

Apart from mere saving, Box also promotes collaboration by integrating office software formats such as Microsoft Word and Google Docs into their own cloud storage app. Through this, teams can quickly edit files without needing to go outside of the Box app. But in addition to these, Box also connects to hundreds of external business-focused apps to enable teams to have maximized efficiency.


Supervisors and administrators using Box can easily add users to their Box accounts or let their team sign up manually. As they add users on their account, part of their access is to delegate specific storage limits to each user as deemed necessary.

The collaboration aspect of cloud goes along with its task manager feature. Box allows organized workflow by putting an area for task lists and deadlines for their teams through an in-app feature called Box notes.


While all of these documents are being viewed, shared and edited, administrators of the account can also have a complete view and control of their Box accounts. Admins can manage permissions and remove access to a specific member as needed. In specific instances, they can only let a member have a view-only access to ensure security of documents. Admins can also view the files that is being shared by a specific member.

Businesses can start with Box accounts at $15 per month per user for at least five users. This gives a business a minimum of 5 GB file size per upload and an unlimited storage. Learn More
