Using Dropbox to automate business processes

A large design firm has just started using Dropbox Business, and they’re hoping to connect the tools they use every day and get the most out of Dropbox.

Meet the team

Brendan and his team work at a large design firm known for their innovative and fresh designs. The company recently joined Dropbox Business, and they’re excited see how tools they already use work with their new accounts.


Meet Brendan

Brendan is the IT manager responsible for managing IT budgets, coordinating team projects, and updating management on those projects. He’s juggling a lot of responsibilities.

Let the ideas flow

Watch as the team shares, edits, and collaborates using Dropbox Business.

Keep collaborating with the desktop app

The Dropbox desktop app means Brandon and his team stay collaborative. They can work together seamlessly with even more built-in integrations for G Suite, Microsoft Office, and Slack.

If the team’s using Slack to communicate, they can share Dropbox files directly into a message without any extra steps. And it works the other way too: they can start Slack conversations right from Dropbox to talk about specific files.

What if Lucia prefers to use Microsoft Word and PowerPoint for some tasks? No problem. Brandon’s team can work on those files right from Dropbox. They avoid multiple applications and windows, which makes getting into all their content quick and easy.

Recover what you need

With Dropbox Business, Brendan has 180 days to recover anything he’s accidentally deleted or to restore old versions of his files. Watch as Brendan discovers how version history can help him get more done.

Note: the video mentions a 120-day file recovery window, but it’s actually now 180 days for Dropbox Business users.

Fluid and natural workflow

With Dropbox Business, this design team works smarter, faster, and more efficiently.

Brendan was able to seamlessly integrate the apps he and his team know and use day-to-day with Dropbox Business. Brendan can get his job done easily because all of the apps he needs are connected in one place, allowing for a fluid and natural workflow.

Can you see your organization using Dropbox in these ways? Even if you’re not in design, these features can be applied to almost anyone, anywhere.
