My Docs Online was established in 1999, and is based in Florida. It is led by a skilled team of technology experts with around 20 years of experience each. Though they are amongst the pricier providers, their security is top notch and they have the most helpful customer service that we have come across so far. From everything we have experienced, we can honestly say My Docs Online is a provider you can believe in. It is important to note that they are not a traditional online storage provider. Due to their limited storage capacities, we have found that they are better suited for users who need secure, high level collaboration and file sharing capabilities, as opposed to high storage capacities. We are happy to recommend them for all SMB’s.
One thing My Docs Online is not short of are features, but their absolute standout feature is their file locking ability and editing via their desktop application. Oftentimes with other providers such as Dropbox, two different users can be editing the same document at the same time. This will result in the changes made by one user wiping out the changes of the other. Alternatively, conflicting copies of the same document will be saved causing a waste of time reediting the documents. What My Docs Online’s file locking does is that it locks the document one user is working on from being edited by another user, thereby removing all of the hassle. Other features include:
- Unlimited file sizes
- Support all file types
- Windows and Mac capabilities
- Fast, professional file sharing, storage & collaboration
- Account branding and corporate desktop app branding
- Branded public customer upload page for receiving files
- Drag & Drop files
- Email notifications & alerts
- Apps for Windows, Mac, iOS and Android
Ease of Use
Installation was an absolute breeze with the standard two minute instillation process. For those who are not computer literate there are video tutorials to help you get set up. These videos are specified to devices and generations of operating systems, such as windows XP, Windows 8, etc. The dashboard, though not stylish, is pretty straightforward to navigate. On the top you have four tabs to navigate between: your files and folders, settings, group administration (where you manage your folder permissions), and an account tab. With their drag and drop feature moving files is extremely easy. It is also possible to schedule you backups by day, week or month. Also, if a backup is interrupted, it will resume where it left off, thereby saving you the hassle and bandwidth of starting again.
