When Paul Doyle, Director of IT at Huge, began exploring options to address the organization’s growing need for better collaboration capabilities, his main priority was to find a way to share large files in a no-fuss, no-hassle way. With Dropbox for Teams, he found a solution that merged seamlessly with Huge’s work flow, allowing employees to share high-definition graphics and videos and parse out raw file formats to expedite work.
“Dropbox for Teams gives us the ability to share any large format file and back
it up automatically, allowing people to work more closely together on projects,” explains Doyle. “Dropbox offers a system that fits with Huge workflows, instead of one that requires Huge to change workflows to fit the system.”
Beyond streamlining how Huge employees tackle their work, Dropbox for Teams made the lives of IT easier. “We have many people who work on two machines,” says Doyle. “By working with data in Dropbox, they can synchronize their laptops and desktops. This alleviates the need for IT to provide some sort of device to make sure multiple machines are in sync. Dropbox does it for us.”
Secure Sharing, Inside and Out
Given how quickly business moves today, Huge’s operations depend on being able to efficiently transfer ideas and information between its offices in the U.S., Europe, and South America. Features like shared folders and LAN-syncing allow Huge to immediately sync files with its London and Rio de Janeiro offices, making collaboration smoother.
“With Dropbox we can share
with our Brazil office without having to implement any infrastructure. It used to be difficult to get things in place, but Dropbox lets us easily get files over to the South American team,” says Sam Gorney, Huge Manager of Technical Support Systems.
Dropbox for Teams is not only a great way for Huge to circulate information internally, it also makes sharing outside the team, like with clients, simple and worry-free. For example, project managers rely on Dropbox to share deliverables such as budgets, project files, and SOWs with their clients. Having the ability to share with a link makes it particularly easy for employees to send information to people outside of the organization. “Dropbox speeds up the process of collaboration between our team and external third parties, and that definitely has made a difference,” explains Doyle.
