Dropbox for Business helps fast-moving tech firms move even faster


Published on July 31, 2015

For tech companies, moving fast isn’t just a company value — it’s often what defines success. To stay ahead of the pack, more and more global tech firms are turning to Dropbox for Business to enable people to work as efficiently as possible.

With the service, employees can collaborate on things like product designs and marketing collateral without worrying about file-size limits. And famously work-from-anywhere techies love being able to access Dropbox on any platform or device. They know their data is always secure, whether they’re connecting from the Bay Area or Bangalore.

It’s no surprise we’ve seen 400% growth in tech teams using our enterprise offering since the start of 2014. Online investment advisor Betterment is one of the latest companies to move to Dropbox for Business, joining a long list of existing tech customers like Intuit, Yahoo!, Spotify, Kayak, Foursquare, OpenTable, Zendesk, and Asana.

Betterment, which made the CNBC Disruptor 50 list for shaking up the field of wealth management, relied on Dropbox to help launch its first major TV ad campaign this summer.

With the service, the company was easily able to share campaign assets with partners across the US. “When you’re constantly trying to operate as fast as possible, you can’t afford to get bogged down with things like tracking down the latest version of a video or trying to send extremely large files over email,” says Joe Ziemer, who leads the New York-based company’s Communications and Partnerships. “With Dropbox, our employees can access and share all their work from one place, even when they’re not physically in the office. This way, we can keep focused on building our business.”

Email marketing software company Campaign Monitor is on its way to doubling in size, using Dropbox for Business as its information backbone for offices from San Francisco to Sydney. “We use Dropbox all across the company,” says San Francisco-based CEO Alex Bard. “We’re sharing assets with our customers all around the world, and it’s made it really easy to get approvals and to keep that constant cycle going so we can move really quickly.”

Innovative tech firms around the world make up an increasing part of the 100,000-plus customers now powered by Dropbox for Business. Those include Singaporean taxi-booking app GrabTaxi, French ride-sharing service BlaBlaCar and Australian legal software provider LEAP. They all like that Dropbox helps them focus on growth, while offering the security controls necessary to keep their intellectual property safe.

Beyond the tech sector, Dropbox for Business is a favorite solution for businesses and their IT organizations, including for retail and CPG customers like Hard Rock and Absolut, and media names like Hearst and News Corp.
