When your team starts using a new service, the last thing they want is a big change in their workflow. That’s why we’ve partnered with all of your favorite apps to make sure Dropbox Business works the way your team does. Here are four ways Dropbox lets you do even more with popular tools—without interrupting your team’s workflow.
At universities today, there is growing pressure on faculty to conduct and publish research. And according to a recent survey, hiring committees at research-intensive universities look at publishing as a primary factor when they’re considering assistant professor candidates. As a top priority for both faculty and staff, researchers should be given every opportunity to thrive. But without the right tools, collaborating on research projects with partners at other institutions can be a challenge. Here’s how Dropbox Education is making it easier for leading research teams to easily share data with partners around the world.
To stay in sync with their students and peers, university faculty need to coordinate a steady flow of coursework and research files. But sharing large databases and files can be a time-consuming process. That’s why nearly 81% of university IT leaders plan to boost cloud spending to provide faster access to resources, improved security, and easier data management. In part three of our Collaboration in Higher Education series, we’ll look at how faster sync can help facilitate coursework, lower costs, and strengthen data security.
If you manage IT for a team, you know how much of a mixed blessing new tools and features can be. Sure, new task management software might help keep you organized, but your team still has to learn how the application works. Yes, a new file management system could increase team productivity, but you need to understand all the features, then teach everyone else.
Productivity is a holy grail of the workplace. But when your files are scattered across devices, and team members are working from various locations, being productive can feel like an impossible feat. If you’re spending more time thinking about work than actually doing it, your workflows probably need some help.
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?
