Dropbox: A Great Solution for Virtual Office Users
Every once in a while, I find a tool that’s so useful for virtual office users like you (and me) that I just have to share it. Dropbox is one of those tools—especially with the company’s latest news.
Dropbox is a free service that lets you bring you documents, photos and videos everywhere and share them easily. More than 45 million people are using Dropbox (including me).
Now, Dropbox just got better for virtual office users with the introduction of Dropbox for Teams. Dropbox for Teams lets companies with a distributed workforce, small businesses with virtual teams, or entrepreneurs serving multiple clients tap into administrative controls, centralized billing, phone support, and plenty of storage space.
Here’s how it works: Dropbox for Teams delivers the same user experience as the free Dropbox service. Adding and updating files is as easy as saving any document, photo or video to the Dropbox folder. Changes sync immediately across all devices which have Dropbox installed. Dropbox is compatible with nearly every computer and smartphone operating system, including Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, and BlackBerry.
With Dropbox for Teams, administrators get new features including centralized billing, phone support, and controls allowing them to add or delete users. Dropbox for Teams is priced at $795 annually for five users, with additional seats available for $125 each. The base plan includes 1,000 GB of storage, and each additional seat comes with 200 GB. Files are stored encrypted on Amazon S3 in secure data centers and also remain on users' Dropbox-synced computers for added backup.
You may not need Dropbox for Teams just yet. But the free version of Dropbox is something from which every virtual office users can benefit. Whether it’s sharing files or just storing them safely as a backup, virtual office users can rely on Dropbox to streamline operations.
