Podio, the online work platform that promotes the ability of anyone to build apps to get their work done, now supports file sharing from Dropbox. The support enables users to bring content from Dropbox into projects and workflows on Podio, using either the web interface or the Podio iPhone app.
“We are so excited to get this integration out the door,” said Phil Chambers, Podio CTO. “There is significant crossover between Dropbox and Podio for segments of our user base, especially in design and advertising agencies, so we know people are seriously anticipating this connection to our platform. It’s all about providing context and supporting workflows around content — a lot of which, is stored on Dropbox.”
The Podio platform allows users to design their own workflow structures, including collaboration, project management, or custom-build applications to support technical communications and other work teams. With Dropbox integration, Podio users can bring their Dropbox content into workflow structures they define, simply by adding files to Podio. Podio notes that this integration also enables users to work with its social, collaborative communication and project management tools. The Dropbox integration also extends to Podio’s iPhone app.
The Podio online platform allows individuals and teams to create customized work tools and workflows without extensive technical skills or dependencies on IT. The latest integration with Dropbox follows the launch of integration with Google Apps, Google Docs, Box, Evernote, Zendesk, FreshBooks, Instapaper, and Campaign Monitor.
