What is Dropbox

Dropbox is primarily a cloud storage platform that was purpose built for individuals to store and share files across devices and with others. HIVO, as a Dropbox alternative on the other hand, is specifically designed as a digital asset management (DAM) solution for business and enterprise to organize, store, and distribute their brand assets, such as images, videos, audio, logos and documents.

Difference in User Interface

HIVO has a user-friendly interface that is designed to help businesses manage their digital assets efficiently. It has features such as customizable metadata tagging and search filters, making it easy for users to find the files they need. Dropbox, on the other hand, has a more simplistic interface that is easy to use but may not be as robust for managing complex digital assets.

Features Comparison

HIVO offers several features that are tailored to the needs of businesses for managing their digital assets, including version control, metadata tagging, workflow automation, and access control. Dropbox offers some of these features as well, but it is not specifically designed for digital asset management.

Overall, HIVO digital asset management software offers more advanced features that are tailored for businesses looking to manage their digital assets efficiently and with metadata. HIVO is a great Dropbox alternative as Dropbox users typically want a more general-purpose platform that is suitable for personal use or basic file storage and sharing needs.

The key differences between the two are the purpose, features, and pricing. HIVO is designed specifically for digital asset management, offers advanced features, and is priced accordingly, while Dropbox is a more general cloud storage platform, offers basic features, and has both free and paid plans.

"   The staff are getting a lot of daily use out of HIVO (and no longer requesting photos from me anymore), so the platform has been a great success!   "
Creative Director, City Renewal Authority
"   Adopting the HIVO DAM platform has been a true benefit for our organisation. The process of categorising, storing and sharing assets through HIVO has created efficiencies and time savings for staff, and ensures the quality of our assets. An added bonus is the streamlined creator upload option – this has saved us so much time when compared to our previous processes.   "

Destination Marketing, Digital Executive
"   The HIVO DAM was very well received from all partners and sponsors that accessed the HIVO system daily in the lead up and during the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games. Made life so much easier!  "
Senior Manager, Digital Marketing
"   The ability to talk to our marketing team in real time is invaluable. Rather than going back and forth via email; the ability to mark and tag our creative team in posts on artwork, videos and documents allows us to quickly turnaround content and any marketing collateral we need.   "
Owner of Revo Fitness
"   Working with HIVO allowed us to streamline a rapidly growing house of brands under one roof and allow collaboration and visibility from management and marketing through to the sales and field team. We swiftly onboarded and created customised task management for creating and approving artwork to suit our internal processes. The proximity of workflow to assets is crucial for fast and on-brand distribution.  "
