The American Bar Association Spotlights Box

By

Box ultimately makes sharing simple, but we take pride in the fact that we’re used to solve all sorts of problems for a variety of companies – from facilitating group projects and managing and tracking file activity, to creating virtual deal rooms.

One industry that we’re seeing a lot of interest from is legal. With every case comes a slew of files that need to be sent to clients, colleagues and opposing counsel in a quick and secure manner. We’re excited to share today’s news that we’re a featured vendor in the American Bar Association’s brand new technology marketplace, ABA TechEZ, as a collaboration and document management tool. Created by the ABA Legal Technology Resource Center and ABA Member Benefits, ABA TechEZ will educate firms that don’t have a dedicated IT staff on the software they can benefit from, as well as offer an ABA member discount.

We’re excited to work with the ABA as we strive to provide organizations with technology that affordably adds value to their business. Not only does Box provide a place to centralize all the documents associated with a particular case, but we also offer more security than email, control over file access and updates on who’s doing what. One of our legal customers, Gunderson Dettmer, which specializes in mergers and acquisitions, has this to say about Box: “Compared to putting files on a CD and mailing them overnight, I have parties in Texas and New York that can now download them in less than an hour. Being able to do that so quickly is invaluable.”

If you’re an ABA member, make sure to mention it to your Box.net sales rep to get a discount on Box for your firm.
