Founded in 2007, the computer software company Dropbox has been making business and work far simpler, and today is one of the leading names in digital work software. For Dropbox, a smart workspace is critical to the success of any business. What exactly makes a smart workspace? It’s “a digital environment that brings all of a team’s content together with the tools they love.” A good digital workspace does three key things, according to Dropbox: connects all content and tools, fosters clean communication between team members, and utilizes machine intelligence to prioritize the most important things and help break through the clutter of a busy work space. Dropbox’s growing suite of tools and applications help companies foster this smart workspace without getting in the way of their natural rhythm and process.
The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the modern work environment for good. Offices worldwide have switched to virtual work options, and according to the Wall Street Journal, “even once safety measures subside, the pandemic is likely to spur a broader restructuring of offices and the ways in which people do their jobs." Drew Houston, founder and CEO of Dropbox, has been leading his company towards an increasingly digital future since its beginnings, putting Dropbox on the cutting edge of this new professional landscape.
More than just offering a stacked suite of tools to its customers, Dropbox implements the same strategies and software it provides to companies into its own business practices. The company is one of the first to make the permanent shift to operating virtually. Virtual First allows employees to control their work environment and process and organizes employees in small, tight-knit teams allowing for deeper engagement with both coworkers and the project at hand. Dropox’s shift has created a work experience that is simultaneously more creative and more collaborative. It’s not just a software company trying to make things faster or simpler, but truly better, more beneficial and fruitful than ever.
