We’re always intrigued by the diverse ways our CX online storage users use CX both personally and professionally. Just like we have many different types of users from all around the world, the CX cloud storage application has been adopted in a variety of circumstances, from storing contacts to collaborating with co-workers miles away. Check out just a few CX case studies from some of our savvy users below.
From CX user Richard McAroy: I use Groups to archive veterinary documents to include drug dosage tables, medical treatment protocols and client handouts. The veterinary Group members all contribute to our database on CX, and the chat function comes in handy for doctors to send questions to other Group members.
From CX user John Atkinson: Groups is the main reason I use CX. I have a good friend who does my intro’s and outro’s that I use in wirecast and also for my product reviews, and he is absolutely amazing, but due to him being U.S.-based and myself being UK-based, it’s easier to use the sharing facility in CX when he does amendments than I can download in my time zone. This is, in my mind, the best feature in CX that I see others now copying.
From CX user Eric Rothweiler: By day I am an IT professional, by evening I am normally “just a family man.” However, I also umpire baseball and high school wrestling. Both of these endeavors require moderate record keeping of schedule information, contact information (of which I do not want to mix these contacts in with my e-mail address book — they are only used for 2 months a year for wrestling and up to 2-and-a-half months a year for baseball), as well as my accounting information as work done for schools is paid on irregular schedules.
CX has saved me in two different ways — by being able to retrieve my contact list from other devices than my laptop (and from anyplace I can get an Internet connection — I couldn’t do that by copying those documents to my home server!) and by recovering all information when my laptop has had catastrophic failures. There is no worse feeling than having a computer hard disk fail and thinking, “I’m going to have to reconstruct my income and expenses documentation for this small side business, and it needs to be accurate.” It’s great to then have the feeling, “Oh, yeah, I had that saved to CX, it’ll only take a minute to get it back!” I formerly used Novell’s iFolder on a home server, but not being quite geekish enough, I had no desire to either pay for a static IP or register and set up Dynamic DNS so I could access it from the public Internet.
From CX user Christopher Jones: I like to have my files on-the-go. As a designer, it’s nice to pull up my work on my phone on-the-go or in a browser no matter whose computer it might be. I’m on numerous devices throughout the day, and being able to get to the files I need on each of them is a much-needed time-saver.
From CX user Henree Garcia: I use CX with portable apps. This means that I create a “portable app” with a software called Cameyo. I can run these apps on my USB or just sync them using CX. I don’t have to install my software on every computer I use — they just appear and work with CX!
I also wanted to say the design of CX is awesome! I love it, and it’s part of the reason I signed up. When I download an app, I know it’s wrong, but I judge it by its icon first. If it has an ugly icon, I tend to ignore it. It may be a great app, but I can already tell that not much mind was put into the design. CX does a great job with design. Go CX.com!
