App of the Month: Dropbox
Why: As mobile professionals, Real Estate Agents can benefit tremendously from having access to their files while on the go from any device. In the past this was accomplished by placing data on physical storage media like CDs or USB flash drives. Now, with Cloud storage, Realtors can access all of their important documents from just about anywhere at any time, and keep these files up to date in all locations.
Cost: Free and Paid Aspects (see below)
What Dropbox Does: Real Estate Agents require their files to be both accessible at any time and to be securely backed up in case of a computer crash. Dropbox provides a solution to both of these while requiring no more effort on the part of the Realtor. By using dropbox, real estate agents will have access to their files on their computers, phones, and tablets. Additionally, Realtors can access their files from any computer with a web browser in case they don’t have their devices with them. This means that not only are files synced between devices, but they are also securely backed up online. A real estate agent using Dropbox could have a total computer crash and lose their phone and still not have to worry knowing that their files are perfectly safe and available to them.
Pricing Plans: Basic, Pro and Business (see graphic below)
