The technology company Dropbox has recently launched two new apps in collaboration with professional software company Autodesk.
The new solutions include an integrated desktop app for opening and saving Autodesk files stored in Dropbox and an app for viewing design files.
By using the Dropbox desktop app, users will be able to open and save files directly in the cloud through the AutoCad application. The other app that the company plans to introduce soon allows Autodesk users to share design files with users who don`t own the Autodesk software, according to Dropbox`s announcement. Moreover, users will have the opportunity to comment on the content they share between each other.
The company said that the move comes as an answer to customers` requests for new features. The goal is to make content collaboration simple and more efficient.
“This integration removes friction for our customers trying to access, review, and move data from task to task“, as Amy Bunszel, SVP Design & Creation Products at Autodesk, commented in the statement. She added that the service hopes to improve the user experience for customers of both companies.
However, the newly established collaboration between the two companies is nothing new. In 2015, Dropbox and Autocad introduced Autodesk A360, a simple cloud storage and file sharing service.
The latest collaboration between the two companies is part of Dropbox`s broader plan to attract third-party partners. This would help them integrate their products more directly into business applications, where people are performing their job tasks in real time.
Dropbox`s latest service may be downloaded from the Autodesk App Store.
