Why Dropbox is popular for business

Dropbox cloud serviceAs it relates to Cloud services, Dropbox is one of the bigger names in the game. While there are a multitude of cloud computing options for consumers and enterprises to consider, Dropbox continues to devour the file sync and share market with over 175 registered users, up from 110 million in 2012. To be sure, Dropbox is not the end-all of the available cloud services options, with competitors such as Box gaining momentum and market share. But it does have its advantages.

Here are our top five reasons why Dropbox is so popular:

  • An API – Dropbox lets mobile Apps such as ProntoForms store and sync data. For example, let’s take the scenario of an inspector at a job site. He can complete his mobile form inspection on his tablet and then submit instantly to both his company’s back office system and to a Dropbox folder.
  • Access from anywhere – No matter where you are, access to Dropbox is quick and easy. You can use a smartphone or tablet to easily log in to Dropbox and access/share/upload/download files with simplicity.
  • Video link generation – If you store a video in a Dropbox folder and want to share it with someone, Dropbox will let you generate a link to send to someone for video viewing, without that contact having to download the complete video.
  • File organization – The user experience within Dropbox is very good. File folders can be created with relative ease, with subfolders also simple to create. In addition, the search function within Dropbox lets users quickly locate particular files that might have been misfiled or buried deep within a subfolder.
  • It’s free – Yes, if used on a large scale by enterprises, there are fees associated with Dropbox. However, it does also offer a significant amount of space for free.

Cloud services and connectivityThere are many ProntoForms customers that are collecting data in the field and connecting it with Dropbox.

Similar to companies that are connecting mobile form data with other vendors like Box and Evernote, ProntoForms Dropbox customers are benefiting greatly from the time-saving and accessibility attributes associated with cloud services for business.
