Why use Dropbase?

Dropbase is single data platform that gives you the tools you need for importing, validating, and managing all your data out of the box. You don't need to set up various different tools and go through the hassle of connecting them all together.

While most of the modern data integration tools focus exclusively on extracting data from internal sources, Dropbase helps you integrate data from both internal sources as well as external sources such as customers, suppliers, and partners. Often times, external partners' data sources don’t have APIs to easily connect to. External partners will extract data from a source system as a CSV file and send them over through email, cloud drives, or SFTPs. This is an inefficient process for both the data sender and the data receiver because both sides have to perform manual work of extracting, cleaning, and uploading data. Dropbase makes this process seamless and efficient, saving you time so that you can focus on making your data useful.
