Then we'll upgrade our Box account to Box for Business. And we'll learn how to use the advanced features, including user management, file versioning and reporting. I have used other cloud-based storage solutions that gave me some of the features I needed, but Box does it all. I'm excited to be able to show you how Box works and how you can make it work for you.
