Box and SAP SuccessFactors Streamline HR in the Cloud

At Box we're focused on building a platform that centralizes your organization's most valuable content. More than 62,000 businesses rely on us because when you put your work in Box it not only benefits from our enterprise-grade security and controls, it also becomes more intelligent and easier to collaborate. We offer seamless connections with all the tools you need to be productive, whether you're in sales, marketing, IT, HR, finance or any other job function. Today, we're making it even easier for HR practitioners to benefit from Box by announcing a deeper integration with SAP SuccessFactors, one of the most popular cloud-based offerings used by human resources departments across the globe.

SAP SuccessFactors customers will now be able to leverage Box as a content layer to manage employee files and to streamline everyday HR processes. For the first time, you'll be able to find, edit and share content in Box anytime you're using SAP SuccessFactors for everyday business tasks such as applicant tracking, employee performance, recruiting, succession planning, talent management or analytics. Using Box and SAP SuccessFactors together brings a wide range of benefits:

  • Eliminate version control issues in reviews and approvals: Box offers users a single source of truth when working with HR materials that may be passed between multiple stakeholders for reviews, edits or approvals. You can even use productivity tools like Office 365 to make edits that are automatically saved back to Box in real-time, which ensures you always have the latest, most up-to-date version when you access content from SAP SuccessFactors.

  • Robust collaboration to increase HR productivity: Our robust collaboration features, such as task management, workflow automation, comments and real-time alerts make work easier and faster for HR, whether you're getting an offer letter through approvals and to a prospect, or completing employee performance reviews.

  • World-class security, control and compliance to HR materials: Box features like granular permissions, password protected content, and access stats, plus add-on packages like Box Governance, Box KeySafe and Box Zones bring true enterprise grade security and control to important (and often confidential) business content created and managed by HR departments. Box also meets all of the most critical compliance standards, like ISO 27018. This means, all of your content in Box meets the widely accepted international standard for protecting personally identifiable information - so all of your resumes, employee backgrounds, and all sensitive information instantly comply once uploaded to Box.

Our work with SAP SuccessFactors is the latest way that Box is building integrations that help your business work fully and seamlessly in the cloud. We have deep connections with Office 365, IBM, Salesforce, Adobe and 1,000s of others. Just last week, we also announced a new way for technology companies to integrate with Box, making it easier and faster than ever before.

The Box integration with SAP SuccessFactors will be available in beta this month, and then generally available by the end of the year. In the meantime, stay tuned as we continue to build deep integrations with all of the tools you need to be productive at work!
