Dropbox and Salesforce Form Strategic Partnership
SAN FRANCISCO—March 9, 2018—Today Dropbox and Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) announced a strategic partnership that connects the #1 CRM platform with our leading collaboration platform, enabling companies of all types to collaborate and more deeply connect with their customers across sales, service, marketing, commerce, and more.
The companies will initially deliver two new integrations to drive brand engagement and boost team productivity:
- Commerce Cloud and Marketing Cloud + Dropbox: Create branded, customized Dropbox folders within Salesforce Commerce Cloud and Marketing Cloud with the new digital asset engagement solution. Folders can be accessed by both internal teams and external partners. With two-way workflows, content stays relevant and up-to-date, whether the user is working in Dropbox or Salesforce. For example, a retailer using Salesforce Commerce Cloud may create a Dropbox folder to access product images or creative briefs from an external creative agency. The retailer is notified if the agency makes changes or additions and can then update their online storefront in order to deliver a superior shopping experience.
- Quip + Dropbox: Access Dropbox content, such as photos, videos and slides, directly within Salesforce Quip. Dropbox will also add support for Quip documents, allowing joint users to work on Quip files that live in Dropbox, furthering Dropbox’s effort to build a unified home for work.
In addition to these new integrations, Salesforce will use Dropbox Enterprise and Dropbox will significantly extend its use of Salesforce products including Salesforce Service Cloud, Marketing Cloud and PRM across its business.
Expanding Partnership with Continued Focus on Customer Success
Today’s announcement builds on the existing relationship between Salesforce and Dropbox, including the Dropbox for Salesforce app available on the Salesforce AppExchange. Additionally, Salesforce Ventures, Salesforce’s corporate investment group, has been an investor in Dropbox since 2014.
