Salesforce and Dropbox Integration for an IT Company

About The Company:

Our client is a leading provider of comprehensive IT solutions, specializing in cloud services, software development, and digital transformation strategies. With a solid commitment to delivering innovative solutions to its clients, they pride themselves on staying at the forefront of technology trends.

Customer Challenges:

The client was experiencing challenges managing and organizing its vast customer data and project files. The company's sales and project teams often worked with disjointed systems, resulting in inefficiencies, duplicated efforts, and missed opportunities. Vital customer information, communication threads, and project documentation were scattered across different platforms, hindering collaboration and slowing decision-making. The need for a solution to seamlessly integrate customer relationship management (CRM) and file storage became apparent.


In response to these challenges, We decided to implement a comprehensive integration between Salesforce, and Dropbox, its preferred file storage solution.

The key step of integration included:

Initially, we added the 'Dropbox for Business' managed package from the AppExchange library to the client’s Salesforce repository. After granting the necessary authorization permissions and successfully installing it, we accessed the Salesforce account.  

Subsequently, we created custom objects for records and accounts designated to store related data. We did field mapping between these objects and Dropbox - consequently, a fresh segment dedicated to Dropbox records was added to our designated web pages.
Ultimately, we seamlessly Integrated Dropbox with our tailored Salesforce solution. We achieved this by navigating the dashboard and selecting the 'Connect to Dropbox' option. Following the provision of requisite authorization permissions, the integration concluded successfully.


The integration of Salesforce and Dropbox brought about significant improvements to the client:

  • Enhanced Productivity: With streamlined access to files and customer data, teams spent less time searching for information, resulting in increased efficiency and reduced administrative overhead.
  • Improved Collaboration: Real-time collaboration solutions improved teamwork by allowing individuals to collaborate smoothly regardless of physical location.
  • Faster Decision-Making: Immediate access to up-to-date customer data and project files allowed quicker decision-making and more informed client interactions.
  • Reduced Errors: Automation and data synchronization minimized the chances of errors caused by manual data entry and outdated information.


CloudCache Consulting successfully tackled the client’s challenges through the strategic integration of Salesforce and Dropbox. We connected these two essential platforms utilizing our Salesforce professional resources. Through this integration, the client improved internal processes and enhanced customer satisfaction through more streamlined interactions.
