At universities today, people rely on a wide range of specialized apps, from learning management systems to identity management solutions to research annotation tools. The question is: Do all of those tools work well together or are they slowing down workflows? In part two of our series on collaboration in higher education, we’ll look at how integrating existing tools with Dropbox Education can help faculty, staff, researchers, and students streamline the way they work.
According to Cirrus Insight, the average sales rep spends only two days per week selling and interacting with customers. How many more deals could a salesperson close with twice the time for selling activities? In the next several years, machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) may help us answer that question. We’ll soon live in a world where machines can accurately predict which deals are most likely to close, how long they’ll take to close, and what actions to take at each step of the buyer’s journey.
Collaboration and knowledge sharing are pillars of higher education. Instead of working in silos detached from other educational spaces, universities can leverage technology to break down barriers. This creates opportunities to drive efficiency, productivity, and innovation in higher education and research. Today, we’ll show you how IT admins can leverage Dropbox Education to improve visibility, control, and security on their campuses.
The rise of new productivity tools has changed how people collaborate, but at the cost of reduced transparency and lost time. Whether you’re creating, distributing, or retrieving content, you need a unified home that brings it all together in one place. That’s why we built the new DBX Platform to be the connective tissue for teams and businesses of all sizes. It enables teams to collaborate easily with industry-standard security—even when work spans across tools, apps, devices, and operating systems. Today, we’re introducing a unified suite of APIs and tools, and announcing new integrations with Atlassian,
How does one become the world’s youngest Director of Sales & Marketing for a global luxury brand, like InterContinental Hotels & Resorts? Just ask Jake Megrikian, who assumed that role before he turned 30. Based in Beverly Hills, Jake currently leads a team with both senior managers and hourly associates. We had a chance to chat with Jake about how to keep a team motivated in the wake of a record-breaking sales year, what tools keep his team productive, and more.
Are we alone? That’s the core question the SETI Institute (Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence) is trying to answer. Looking up at the night sky and reflecting on the vastness of space can be a humbling experience. And yet, those stars we can see represent just a tiny fraction of what’s out there. That’s why we’re excited about working with the team at SETI. We believe if we can help customers like them find creative ways to lead the world to new worlds, we’re on the right track.
SMBs are the cornerstone of every industry. They start with a small group of passionate people, a big idea, and the hope of making an impact. And as the business evolves, you want the best for it.
