SmartDeploy offers native integration with Box, Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive, and Microsoft OneDrive for Business. In the past 12 months, more than 22,000 Windows 10 computers have been remotely reimaged from the cloud by using SmartDeploy. Of those, 60.29 percent leveraged Dropbox cloud storage, 26.11 percent leveraged Google Drive cloud storage, and 11.75 percent leveraged OneDrive for Business.

“Our cloud services offering has grown in popularity as many organizations have implemented remote work policies during the COVID-19 pandemic.

All of these capabilities were born out of customer feedback and requests.”
