The Westcoast Cloud Team
May 6, 2022

We’ve partnered with Dropbox!

Westcoast Cloud are proud to announce our partnership with Dropbox – a powerful platform where teams, tools and content come together. Trusted by 600 million users, it allows companies to centralise files, access and share work from any device or browser, and connect third-party tools to bring documents together.

Westcoast, as one of the largest UK Cloud distributors, is constantly looking to add to its cloud portfolio with exceptional vendors,’ – Mark Davies, Managing Director at Westcoast Cloud. ‘When the opportunity came up to work with Dropbox it was a very complimentary fit. The Dropbox opportunity for partners is built around security, value, and ease of use.’

The Dropbox mission is to design a more enlightened way of working.

Most “productivity tools” get in your way. They constantly ping, distract, and disrupt your team’s flow, so you spend your days switching between apps and tracking down feedback. It’s busywork, not the meaningful stuff. Dropbox allows you to focus on the work that matters.

Be organised

Bring traditional files, cloud content, Dropbox Paper docs and Web shortcuts together in one place, and tackle work efficiently.

  • Store and access files from anywhere

Store your files in one safe place, accessible from your computer, phone, or tablet. Back up important folders like your ‘Desktop’ – any changes will sync across your account.

  • Bring all your content together

Create and edit your work – including cloud content and Microsoft office files – directly in Dropbox, so you spend less time switching between apps or searching for files.

  • Work smarter from your desktop

Dropbox’s Desktop experience with smart content suggestions lets you work with your team, content, and tools – all from the convenience of one organised place.

  • PDF editing

Did you know that you can now edit PDFs within Dropbox? No? I thought so, help your customers avoid spammy websites and using unnecessary tools to edit PDFs. Now they can do it all in the same place, this will help them streamline their workflows & avoid unnecessary costs and security threats.

Get in sync

Keep projects moving forward with your team in sync and connected to the tools you use every day without ever leaving Dropbox.

  • Always be informed

Be notified of progress updates and to-dos added to descriptions and stay up to date with a recent-activity view that lives alongside your work.

  • Connect your tools to Dropbox

Dropbox are powering a new era of collaboration. From project management to IT security, connect easily to the tools your teams use every day and get the most out of Dropbox.

  • Dropbox Paper puts everyone on the same page

With Dropbox Paper, a collaborative doc for your team, you can create content easily and organise your projects using timelines, to-dos, and tables. Your team can do all their project planning and tracking without ever having to leave Dropbox.

Stay Secure

At home, in the office or on the go, Dropbox keeps your personal and business files safe, and gives you the tools you need to protect the work you share.

  • Give the right people the right access

With features like password protection, expiring links and download permissions, you can ensure shared files stay where they should.

  • Disaster-proof your files

Protect files from unwanted edits, deletions, hackers, and viruses by restoring or recovering anything in your Dropbox account for up to 30 days.

  • Keep company data in safe hands

Dropbox is the secure, flexible workspace trusted by over 500,000 teams to keep their most important data protected.

  • Dropbox Transfer

External collaborators don’t have Dropbox? Not a problem! You can transfer up to 250gb to anyone with or without a Dropbox account, they can simply download the file (or add it to their own Dropbox account). This can help your customers get rid of old FTP and clunky NAS devices.

‘Westcoast sales staff impressed us with their added value to partners by helping them drive the technical and pre-sales conversations to help partners increase close rates plus the continued support demonstrated higher renewal rates.’ – Alex Behrendt, Distribution Sales Manager, UK & IE, Dropbox.
