"Moving in the right direction.....still has some issues."

What do you like best?

I really like the Amazon WorkDocs Companion app which allows you to work on the documents using the application on your own computer, but save them directly into the WorkDocs website where it updates automatically. So, it's different from online versions in that you can work on your desktop (i.e., using Excel through your own desktop application), but when you save and close the new version is immediately populated into the WorkDocs folder on the web with a notification of a successful save. This allows you to be sure that you are working in the more recent document and that your changes are being saved. Also, I like that you can lock a document while working in it to prevent others from making changes.

What do you dislike?

There are a few issues I've ran across. First and foremost, the Amazon WorkDocs Drive that syncs the WorkDocs with a desktop-accessible version will spontaneously crash. This results in having to go through some workarounds to re-save your file onto your computer and re-upload the version. Thankfully, you usually don't lose your work, but the file will no longer save in the right place. Another issue revolves around the inability to work in a single document with multiple people at the same time. We have found that only one person's version saves at a time, which means that other people are saving versions that aren't actually populating into the parent document. This CAN and DOES result in a loss of work if your team does not recognize this issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Make sure to create guidelines for when people need to work in one document at the same time. I would recommend test-running this procedure to see when and how the changes are saved and if they populate where you expect them to. This is especially important for when using the WorkDocs Drive application.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Amazon WorkDocs allows our business to work remotely on several different projects. We needed a work platform that would allow us to work offline using products, such as statistical software, that we already have.

What do you dislike?

Within what I do not like, which is a complicated problem, it is not so simple for all people and that something can be done for people

"Friendly User Usability "

What do you like best?

A really nice feature of the web application is the user’s ability to request feedback on files they have shared allowing contributors to highlight an area of the file and leave detailed feedback on what needs to be changed. This is excellent!

What do you dislike?

Unfortunately, like Dropbox and Box you can’t make the changes through the web application. It would be very useful if the user had the ability to make the changes within the application of the webpage, most especially for remote employees.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The business problems that we have used Amazon WorkDocs for is that; users also have the option to set specific deadlines for feedback on a particular file, and it allows you to track files that are out for review and allows you to make necessary changes. A benefit is streamlining our processes which makes efficiency so much easier for our teams.
