Everyone loves choices. Plain Oreo’s or Double Stuff. Oranges or orange juice. Salad or brownies. (Let’s be honest, that last one isn’t really a choice).
Sometimes instead of an easy yes or no answer, there can be too many options to compare. Then you have to figure out, are you really comparing apples to apples? That’s a common question when looking at the big three online document management services – Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.
All three offer online document sync, storage, and easy access to items when you need them. Google Drive will give you the most storage for free, true, but that storage is also spread out over your Gmail, Goggle photos and other Goggle services. So is it really such a bargain? OneDrive works seamlessly with Word and Excel documents, but what if you use Pages and Numbers on a Mac? Dropbox offers storage, but not document creation options.
When you’re making decisions about which online document sync service to go with, some questions you want to ask yourself include:
- How much storage do you really need?
- Are you willing to pay for storage, or do you only want a free option?
- Are you planning to collaborate with people? More people use a Goggle account in comparison to either Microsoft or Dropbox.
- Do you just want to store/access documents?
- Do you want to create documents?
Figuring out which online document sync option to go with isn’t necessarily an apples to apples choice. For help with asking the right questions, and making a decision with less confusion, let’s talk! Schedule your Discovery Call today!
