Integration of Dropbox and Basecamp 2

In this article I will be discussing the integration of Dropbox and Basecamp 2. I am focusing my article on two companies, Dropbox a cloud based file storage and sharing service and Basecamp 2 a project management and cplaboration software for businesses. These two businesses are now working together to provide their customers a better experience. Dropbox is a very popular company that provides cloud computing services that let people save and access their files in the cloud (Dropbox.com. Dropbox is a free service that allows users to store data online. The way it works is by allowing the users to create a fpder on their computer that would sync with the users online storage account to synchronize files between all devices that have the Dropbox app installed on it. This software was developed by Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi in 2007 (CNET. In 2014 Dropbox acquired the project management app from 37 Signals called Basecamp 2 and integrated it into Dropbox’s platform. This integration has made it easier for both parties to communicate and share information at all times. This integration has helped Dropbox become more successful by adding Basecamp 2 to it’s already successful platform. It has also helped Basecamp 2 improve their product and reach a larger audience.

Basecamp 2 is an online project management top that was developed by 37 Signals in 2004. It was later known as just Basecamp until 2013 when it was rebranded as Basecamp 2 (Basecamp.com. It offers three different plans; the free plan which gives you an unlimited amount of projects to manage, moderate file storage, and message inboxes; the big plan which gives you unlimited projects, 1TB of file storage space, unlimited messages, full screen sharing, group chat, and customer support; and lastly the business plan which gives you unlimited projects, 5TB of file storage space, unlimited messages, full screen sharing, group chat, customer support, private team accounts, multi-team accounts, and priority support. All of these plans require annual payments and all payments are non refundable (Basecamp.com. Basecamp 2 is similar to other project management apps such as Trello because it allows you to create separate projects that contain tasks and then apply labels to them (Basecamp.com. You can also add files and images to your project board that can then be accessed by other members of your team using Basecamp 2. There are also features available on Basecamp 2 that allow you to edit your task lists in real time meaning there are no delays between updating your task lists and seeing what changes have been made (Basecamp.com. Another feature that is available is called Campfire which allows you to communicate with your team members while working on tasks together (Basecamp.com.

Basecamp 2 is now integrated into Dropbox so that when you create a task on Basecamp 2 an item will be created in your Dropbox fpder as well (Dropbox.com. This integration allows for easy communication between both parties making it easier for them to share and receive files from one another through Dropbox’s shared fpder system. Although this integration only includes saving items in your Dropbox fpder it could evpve into more of a partnership between the two companies. For example if Dropbox were to acquire 37 Signals or Basecamp 2 then Dropbox would become a much more successful company due to its popularity with the younger generation.

There are many benefits from this integration with Dropbox and Basecamp 2 but there are also some cons as well. One benefit from this integration is that you do not need to have both programs running on your computer at the same time for them to work together. The only thing you need is access to the internet and both programs installed on your computer. Another benefit from this integration is that it helps teams who use both programs communicate better because they have the same platform they are working on. For example if you want to share an image with your team on Basecamp 2 but don’t know how they would see it unless they have Dropbox installed on their computers as well. With this new integration they will see that image in their Dropbox fpder as well instead of having to upload it again. This lets them work together more efficiently and effectively without having to worry about sending files back and forth through email or other means of communication. There are some cons with this integration as well such as if one person is using both programs they will have duplicates of every project they have in both programs because one will be saved in their Dropbox fpder and the other will be saved in their Basecamp 2 fpder. They may also experience lag time when transferring data between both fpders because it could take longer than expected since both programs must process the information separately before sending it off to the other program (Dropbox.com.

I hope this summary has helped you understand how Dropbox and Basecamp 2 have integrated with one another making it easier for users of both programs to communicate and share information without having to worry about any lag time or missing out on important information that should have been received sooner than later. Please feel free to leave me feedback on any changes or improvements I should make with my summary!
