Awesome Apps: Dropbox

Dropbox is something we started using casually a couple of years ago. However, it's now a critical part of our business and my personal work flow.

In there words:

Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring all your photos, docs, and videos anywhere. This means that any file you save to your Dropbox will automatically save to all your computersphonesand even the Dropbox website.

Dropbox also makes it super easy to share with others, whether you're a student or professional, parent or grandparent. Even if you accidentally spill a latte on your laptop, have no fear! You can relax knowing that Dropbox always has you covered, and none of your stuff will ever be lost.

Dropbox essentially helps you move all of your files to the cloud. Instead of setting up and maintaining a bunch of costly servers to store your personal and business documents, you can simply let Dropbox deal with it.

We keep all of our company files and documents on Dropbox. This process has saved us $1000's of dollars each year. The files are accessed just like they were in your computer file directory and best of all – enables us to access any file we need from any internet connected device – mobile or desktop. No VPNs, no single machine access, no nonsense. We can also share files of any size with any of our customers or partners whenever they need access. Brilliant.

We've worked with lots of staffing companies that still spend tons of time, money and human resources managing their own internal servers. For many companies – access and security concerns are still the main reason keeping these companies from going to the cloud. It's unfortunate because the costs and security issues of hosting your own internal servers are much more of a risk. You can read more about the safety and security of Dropbox here.

Using Dropbox is just a start. If you'd like to learn more about moving your staffing company to the cloud we can help. Let's chat!

  1. I would have agreed until yesterday when our number with Google Drive was called, and we started playing around with it. As far as we can tell in a relatively short amount of time, there are very few differences, if any. Oh, except for the price. We’ll save over $100 per month for making a relatively painless switch. A large company would obviously enjoy much greater savings. Results may vary, but we’re enjoying watching the commoditization of yet another business service. This one didn’t take long.
