"Risk Analyst "

What do you like best?

It is highly secured management platform, great for sharing content and being able to collaborate on work projects by having the ability to be accessible on any device. We use this platform at my current job when we need to work from home or even check work emails from home which is nice and convenient. However, when downloading on phone, your phone must be up to date on the latest software version.

What do you dislike?

I dislike having to enter my password every time, I wish I could just automatically be signed in but I do understand this is for security reasons. Although, it would save time and just be a convenience. This depends mainly on how frequent it is being used by the user, as this many vary person to person.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Installation takes a long process, making this process less timely would be a great. Also being able to sign in thru other methods like using your thumb, a similar way in which Apple does would be nice.

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

Able to use this platform any time of the day, which makes it very accessible to anyone, despite where you are located. Allows flexibility of our workforce and the ability to have information at our fingertips without worrying about security issues.

"Good, needs more connectivity"

What do you like best?

It is very simple and easy to use. The platform looks similar to what my IOS already runs on. The main thing I would like to see is an ability to sync across calendars. I like that it has my work schedule, however if I am using my calendar on my apple, I want to be able to see both simultaneously

What do you dislike?

Apart from this, the activation key I believe should be readily available similar to forgetting a password. Although this may be a company issue not a BB issue.

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

Connecting my laptop to my phone, we are currently in a transition to more of an online servicing. However, we are still behind with cross-platform connectivity. My computer is Microsoft based and uses most applications for this. My phone is IOS, the more symmetry between the two the better.

"Great for privacy "

What do you like best?

The security authentication gives us the ability to keep people plugged in while away from their computers without worrying about someone who is not authorized accessing sensitive information.

What do you dislike?

That the security features don't allow me to have my calendars synced on my phone

Recommendations to others considering the product

If security is a top concern this is a great alternative to allowing people to use their regular email settings on their smart phones. You are required to have an access key and it allows the company to control who has access to what.

"Great protection for your files"

What do you like best?

Great choice for protected file sharing and file transfers. Would not want to use anything else with my Blackberry.

What do you dislike?

Nothing so far. I can feel safe while sending and receiving files no matter how confidential.

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

You can upload files to workspaces and folders. You can create and edit annotations on your files, share your annotations with others, and view annotations on files shared with you. You can send a copy of your workspace files and received files, and forward sent items to other users

"File share with ease!"

What do you like best?

I love that you can do everything you need to do with sharing your files in a safe way with a couple clicks. I know that it is secure and every can collaborate as they need with no problem because everyone can share the files.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it will only let you share so many files if they are really large but it is very rare. The user friendly aspect of it is awesome so there isn't much else that I dislike about it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it. That is all I can say

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

I benefit very well because it saves a lot of time and hassle that I dont have to deal with because it is so easy to share files and collab with my employees.

"Your document tracker on hire"

What do you like best?

Everything can be tracked about the content shared using Watchdox. One feels always safe and in driving seat while sharing files using Watchdox. Moreover the documents stored in Watchdox can be accessed from anywhere by the employees which enables them to be productive on the go as well.

What do you dislike?

Nothing I can think of. The only improvement I can suggest is to improve on the capabilities of their document editor. The document editor is far from being compared to MS Office and more functionalities are required.

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

The problem of ensuring that the critical documents are safe like SOPs and bidding documents has been solved with satisfaction after the deployment of Watchdox. Another advantage is that employees get more freedom to share stuff with partners and vendors without the worry of that information being misused.

"BlackBerry Workspaces"

What do you like best?

I enjoy checking, monitoring, and responding to emails on my BlackBerry because it is most similar to a computer. It does not feel as if you are on a mobile platform.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the lack of innovation in BlackBerry products over the past few years. Platform is dated and is deserving of an update.

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

BlackBerry workspaces is ideal for those who have email intensive occupations and require fast and timely responses without the worry of technical error.

"WatchDox secure document delivery"

What do you like best?

We have looked at a number of secure online document delivery systems and all fall short of our needs, with the exception of WatchDox. We are able to feel confident that documents delivered via WatchDox will only be accessible by their intended recipients. Additionally, with their API we are able to integrate WatchDox as a service with our customer facing software, enhancing our offerings with secure document delivery, yet maintaining our look and feel to the end user.

What do you dislike?

Annotation of PDF's, which is very feature rich and robust on IOS devices is not available in Windows.

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

For international training customers, they are able to integrate their courses with our secure document delivery via WatchDox obviating the need for printed course material and associated shipping issues. Courses can be scheduled and made available to students instantaneously - no need to print training material ahead of the scheduled courses. Training material is only available to the intended recipients, eliminating the possibility of pirating training material for the purpose of offering bootleg courses.

"Great tech support"

What do you like best?

That data is kept "inside the vault" has ensured confidence that our docs are protected. Also, the ability for users to view docs from many devices allows for ease of use. Users love the product and, once trained, confidently navigate through it.

What do you dislike?

Licensed user criteria needs to be changed stop counting users who have not used the system ever or have not used the system in an adjustable or customizable period of time according to a company's specific needs.

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

Improved business process agility, business process outcomes, compliance and risk management, customer relations / service and reduced time to market.

"It made a lasting impression "

What do you like best?

What I like best was managing and accessing my own files without the typical admin request. Even with late submission or errors, people can make edits.

What do you dislike?

There are not enough ways to adjust some setting that would make the platform more personalized.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I always recommend having a good broad band connection so that files can upload and download smoothly without corruption.
