You probably have seen the AT&T television and radio ads about their uVerse product, with an adult interviewing a group of 5 year olds, asking questions like: “do you like more or less?” and “is faster better than slow?”. And of course, the kids answer in a direct way: “I like fast because fast is faster than slow” and “I like more because it’s better than less”. These are simple, un-debatable truths.
In the competitive marketplace that we play against folks like Box and Dropbox, we’re often asked by customers to do a checklist feature comparison. While we score well, this does not tell the true tale-of-the-tape. Some will be able to “check the box” on certain features like sync, AD integration, encryption or mobile access. But when you peek behind the curtain, and customers get to use the products, understand how certain features are designed, how they impact the user, then the initial surface comparisons fall apart for non-enterprise players.
Inspired by the AT&T truth sayer kids, I would love a comparison chart that is more like this.
What do you like better?
Get the picture? These are fundamentals that business users really care about when it comes to accessing and working on their files.
Don’t believe us? Well, we conducted an unofficial side by side comparison of syncing multiple 16mb video files in both Oxygen and Box. Let us show you how our sync is really faster and better:
Come sign up and test drive Oxygen for yourself, and see if you agree that Oxygen is more better than the rest. One of our Vanguard members will be in touch to help you find a solution fit and get you started!
