Dropbox is a file hosting service that offers cloud storage, file synchronization, and client software.
Note: In BriteCore, the Dropbox integration is a disaster recovery solution if you must print your deliverables offsite.
BriteCore print jobs are uploaded to folders inside your Dropbox application during nightly processing. Three days' worth of print jobs is sorted within Dropbox, and then the fourth-day print job replaces the first day.
