Flexible collaboration is one of the core values of Dropbox and is also key for our technology partners, resellers and end users. That’s why we now offer flexible subscription options through Ingram Micro with subscriptions on a rolling monthly commitment.
A lot of work around the world operates on a project basis with varying timelines. Think, for example, of construction projects, advertising campaigns or the many festivals taking place at any one time. A whole host of companies, contractors and freelancers often work together for this type of partnership.
We’ve noticed our customers want the ability to flexibly scale up and down for the duration of a project. Monthly billing supports this need to temporarily expand or contract Dropbox Business teams to meet business requirements. All those involved can easily create, share and collaborate on projects within the Dropbox environment on a flexible plan which can be scaled accordingly upon project completion.
Benefits of Dropbox Business
Dropbox Business gives customers secure shared storage and collaboration on files of any kind and any size, while providing the control IT administrators need. Key advantages of Dropbox Business include:
- Collaborate on files with all users regardless of the platform or file type, internally and externally to the company
- Extensive admin console that provides comprehensive insight into user activities
- Best-in-class sync performance and reliability
- Easy to implement due to large existing user base
- Supports GDPR compliance
Opportunities for SMBs
Dropbox Business can also offer a solution for small-scale projects and companies in the SMB sector. Monthly billing provides full flexibility and low financial risk, while giving customers the tools they need to work effectively. This allows for gains in performance, production capacity and efficiency while maintaining low implementation and support costs.
In addition, a monthly subscription offers the possibility to explore whether the advanced capabilities of Dropbox Business fit within the company or project. No endless emailing, searching for files or looking for storage space. Instead, customers can work conveniently within one system that’s intuitive to use and well-adopted by teams. Comprehensive IT experience isn’t necessary because anyone can easily learn how to work with Dropbox.
For partners who offer Dropbox Business, our monthly contracts make it easy to integrate with other offerings, including Microsoft Office 365. Together, they offer complete solutions for the short- or long-term. Providing multiple solutions to each customer allows for more touch points and a deeper relationship, driving long term customer relationships. In this way, the new monthly subscription option helps partners achieve greater flexibility and more rewarding customer relationships.
