As consumers, a good chunk of the things we purchase are from retail brands. From shoes to clothing to food, it’s hard to put retail companies into a single category because they deliver such a wide range of products. Behind the scenes, these businesses can have a lot in common: they all develop, produce, distribute, and sell products. But it’s the way each team brings that to life that makes their brand unique. That’s why flexible tools are needed. And that’s where Dropbox comes in.
When it comes to buying a new suit, few things are more important than fit. But getting that perfectly tailored garment at a reasonable price often requires numerous trips to the tailor to alter a suit bought off the rack. INDOCHINO’s mission is to change that by delivering made-to-measure suits that don’t break the bank. The company originated selling custom suits online before moving offline and opening physical retail showrooms. Scaling that type of precise craftsmanship required scaling the way their entire business works together, and that process has been enabled by Dropbox.
Les Lunes is not just on the cutting edge of fashion. They’re also early adopters of new team collaboration technology. Founder/CEO Anna Lecat had a vision of designing clothes in Paris, manufacturing out of locally grown bamboo in Shanghai, and setting up stores in the US. Here’s how Dropbox Paper has helped bring that vision to reality by connecting her team across the globe.
What materials come to mind when you think about soft clothing? Cotton? Silk? Cashmere is awfully nice. How about bamboo? Bamboo is a weed that’s mostly known for its strength. But fashion brand Les Lunes makes all of their Parisian-style clothing out of the fabric. Turns out it’s not only soft, but has all sorts of additional benefits.
When Expedia launched in 1996, the online travel agency helped spark a revolution in the industry, giving people the power to book their own trips with just a keyboard and mouse. Once a small team based entirely out of Bellevue, Washington, Expedia Group today is an 18,000-person enterprise with a portfolio of travel brands, including Expedia, Orbitz, Travelocity, and Hotwire, among others.
Technology has revolutionized the way we work, but some tools have had trouble keeping up with us. Email makes quick conversations a snap, but it falls short when you need to share a big file or chase down an unresponsive colleague. Network drives keep the team’s work in one place, but they can be cumbersome to use and maintain. How can we build on the technology that works, but replace the tools that don’t?
