With business growing more and more global, modern work is increasingly collaborative. Because of this, better collaboration tools can help employees transform their businesses.

To better understand the effect of improved collaboration, we had IDC quantify the ROI several of our customers realized by deploying Dropbox.
What do the discovery of the first human cancer gene, the world’s best known search engine, and lithium-ion batteries have in common? They all have their roots in basic research conducted at universities. Today, universities are still leading the charge, performing the majority of the world’s basic research. And they’re doing it together—modern research is increasingly a global and collaborative process. We analyzed usage patterns across the world among the more than 6,000 universities on Dropbox to learn more.

Better efficiency means faster project completion which can ultimately lead to better business outcomes for our customers.
