Do.com, the social productivity app maker, is working on becoming a fully-fledged productivity ecosystem with the introduction of its new Do More platform.

The Salesforce.com-owned company's platform has primariliy been about sharing projects and content within a team to boost productivity.

With Do More, the plan is to sync up and link even more work-related data -- specifically from some popular third-party apps and partners.

For example, users can directly access and share files from Dropbox and Google Drive from within Do More. Other use cases include the Do Chat feature for instant messaging and Contractually for automating the creation of Do Contracts.

As for Salesforce app connections, Do will be linked to Desk.com for collaboration on handling customer service issues.

Generally, the idea is to offer customers with a one-stop shop and access to all of their work needs without having to leave a program. It's about making cloud-based software as simple to use as possible, and we're seeing a lot of this lately from other popular cloud services -- namely two other Salesforce partners: Google (Drive) and Box.

    Great article! This news is especially exciting to me because Do.com’s integration with Google Drive and Dropbox further validates the increasing market demand for enterprise collaboration tools. After reading this piece, I think you may be interested in learning a little more about the company I run, Teambox (https://teambox.com), a cloud collaboration platform provider. Much like Do.com, Teambox is helping transform productivity for global businesses with a single cloud-based platform that aggregates best-of-breed tools like Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and Gmail to enable users to seamlessly move between projects to get more done from any device anywhere. The only difference is, we’ve been doing this for over 18 months. In addition to file sharing, Teambox features include tasks, notes, conversations, group chat, calendaring and gantt charts. Teambox also integrates our API with numerous solutions so users are able to easily migrate apps they currently use into the Teambox platform. Do.com’s news of their integration with Dropbox and Google Drive is great validation for the market strategy Teambox has been executing over the last 18 months. Feel free to contact us if you have any questions.

    Best,
    Dan Schoenbaum, CEO of Teambox
