Lydul vs Dropbox and Google Drive
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 — Lydul.
“How is Lydul 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 Lydul 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 Lydul Pro. And all you get is a place to drop photos. No comments or annotations, no reports, no project timelines — you get the point.
Lydul is entirely free, no matter how many users. If you want to showcase your brand, customize PDFs, control access to your files, and much more, you can upgrade to Pro for just $14/month (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.
Lydul 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 Lydul, 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.
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, accounting software, field service software, and project management tools every day. That’s why we integrate with QuickBooks & Procore, and many more to come — 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.
