It's hard enough to keep one small-business location operating smoothly. Running six locations can be a recipe for disaster. That's the challenge facing SusieCakes, a home-style bakery with half a dozen stores across California, and the reason chief financial officer Houston Striggow turned to Dropbox for Teams, a new premium version of the popular file-sharing application designed expressly for business customers.

"I used to think that all of our stores were on the same page in terms of files, folders and current versions of documents, but I discovered that a set of documents in one bakery can be very different from another, and not everyone was operating from the most current version of the playbook," Striggow says. "Dropbox forced us as a company to become more organized. When I talk to our management teams, they all say it has made their lives easier. It has definitely made my life easier."
