The City in the Cloud: Our Second Trip to Columbia, MO

By

A few months ago, we launched the Box Mobile Giveaway; it was a way for companies all across the US to tell us how using Box and Samsung Galaxy Tabs would take their business to the next level. We were thrilled to choose the City of Columbia, MO as the winner, especially since we’ve seen more and more government organizations successfully move to the cloud over the past year.

A few members of the Box team and I made the trek out to Columbia yesterday, and we’re now at city hall speaking with the Director of IT about how employees are using Box for Android to maximize efficiency and better serve the citizens of Columbia. They’ve been using Box for 2 months now, and we can’t wait to hear how departments like Fire Control, Law Enforcement and even Animal Control are using Box to manage, access and distribute content in the field.

After we chat with employees at Columbia City Hall, we’re heading out with a few departments to see firsthand how they use Box and Samsung Galaxy Tabs. Be sure to follow @BoxHQ for updates and photos of our trip!
