3 Reasons Dropbox and Google Drive Aren’t as Good as CompanyCam

Change is tough. We get it. But if you’re currently storing photos and videos on Google Drive or Dropbox (or worse, in your text message history), it’s time to switch. And we’ve got the solution for you — CompanyCam. 

How is CompanyCam any different from Dropbox or Google Drive?” 

I already have a camera on my phone, why do I need your app?”

We get these questions a lot from potential CompanyCam customers. And you might even be thinking them yourself. So let’s break down why our app is the superior choice. (Yes, we’re biased, but hang with us.)

1. More bang for your buck

iCloud charges $9.99/month per user for a limited amount of storage. Google Drive charges $12/​month per user, also for a limited amount of storage. See a pattern?

Dropbox is $15/​month per user, but it cuts you off at three users. To add more people, you have to upgrade to their unlimited plan, which costs $25/​month per user.

That might not sound like a lot, but it’s still more than CompanyCam Pro. And all you get is a place to drop photos. No comments or annotations, no reports, no project timelines — you get the point.

CompanyCam Basic is free for your first 50 projects and three users. If you want to add more projects, people, and features, you can upgrade to Pro for just $16/​month per user (if you pay annually).

2. Geotagging, reports, and timelines

Dropbox and Google Drive advertise security and access from anywhere with integrations like Zoom and Slack.

CompanyCam offers similar features, AND ours are exclusively designed for the contracting industry. 

All other storage services require you to set up an organization system and spend time uploading photos, videos, and files at the end of each day. With CompanyCam, you can take photos and videos directly in the app to cut out the administrative work. 

Plus, we automatically geotag all your files and projects for faster and simpler organization.

Are there more CompanyCam features that beat out all other competitors? Yes! We could go on and on. Here are some quick hits:

  • Reports builder to help organize your photos and documents 
  • Timeline links that let you show your customers’ project evolution in real time
  • Comments and annotations that make it simple to communicate with your team
  • Project labels so it’s easy to find what you need
  • To-do lists so no proverbial balls get dropped
  • Project collaboration, because working with subcontractors and outside companies is part of the everyday job
  • Before and After templates so you can use your CoCam content to market your business

3. Contractor focused integrations

We talked about how Google Drive and Dropbox integrate with Slack and Zoom. And our guess is you don’t use those that often.

We know you use your CRMs, field service software, and project management tools every day. That’s why we integrate with them — to help keep your projects organized and ultimately, save you time and money. 

Don’t see your favorite software on the list? Our business development team is always working to increase the number of partners and integrations we offer to make your processes more efficient.

Still not convinced you should make the switch? Give us 15 minutes to show you the CompanyCam ropes and change your mind. We love a good challenge.
