Box is one of the best known file storage systems in the world, a platform that, although less known than Dropbox, does not have much to envy, being used in thousands of companies around the world.
Today they announce an agreement made with Google, thanks to which there will be integrations between Box, Google Docs and Google Springboard, being that only the beginning of “a great friendship” between the two companies.
Some large companies, such as Broadcom, Intuit, Internet2 and Whirlpool, already use Box for the management of secure content and Google Docs for productivity and collaboration, by integrating the two platforms it will be possible to work faster, since it will not be necessary to download files from one to upload them to another.
In the first phase we will see how users will be able to open Box files to create and edit documents, spreadsheets and presentations directly from that platform, using Google’s technology extremely tested in any environment.
On the integration with Google Springboard they comment that they want to offer fast search capabilities among information stored through the Google Apps suite, including Gmail, Calendar, Docs, Drive, and, when available, for third-party applications, such as Box. Google Springboard offers useful and actionable information, as well as relevant recommendations, so indexing content saved in Box will be a great step for your users.
