Looking for cloud-based document sharing service for small group
January 23, 2014 11:17 AM Subscribe
I have a small business of about a dozen which has a massive amount of paperwork to be scanned in, organized, and shared. Boxes and boxes. The shareholders are not all very tech-savvy, so I'm also looking for something easy for them to use. There's sort of a dizzying array of options out there. What do you recommend?

I'd like to stay away from options that require you to sync a folder to your own computer, because if all this paperwork ends up taking 50 gigs, that's going to eat into hard drive space. Also, many options I've seen cost something like $15/user/month, which is too much for us to pay, but we could possibly do something like two users - one admin, one general shareholder account.
I looked hard at Google Drive, but am concerned at the ability to organize that much stuff easily on that platform. I do like the fact that it's web-based and doesn't require an additional software installation. I'm also concerned by the fact that if I go over the 15 gig Google limit and have to pay for extra, then share that with other people, do they have to pay extra on their accounts, too?
- Easy to use
- Need either 12 users (preferred) or 2 users
- Doesn't take hard drive space
- Preferably web-based, or can be
- Good organization
- Can do text searches, and (possibly) can sort documents by different fields, like title, subject, date
- Secure and private
