Last year at Box Dev, we announced the Box Platform Partner Program; a program designed to help companies integrating with the Box Platform further develop and market their integrations. Since launch, more than 100 companies have joined the program, including mxHero, Portal Architects, Highspot, Hootsuite, Pega, Vimeo, Workato, and more.
Over the past few months, we been focused on improving the Box Platform Partner Program in two ways. First, we wanted to make it easier for companies to join our program and second, we wanted to provide new ways for our partners to connect with Box employees and each other.
Today, we're excited to announce two updates to the Box Platform Partner Program to do just that.
We completely redesigned and automated our partner onboarding process. Applying to the Box Platform Partner Program is easier than ever, thanks to Workato's connectors that allowed us to design an end-to-end workflow for onboarding new customers that includes a registration form, entry into our CRM, creating a shared folder in Box, and allowing our Partner team to provide approvals.
“We are thrilled to be a part of the Box Platform Partner Program, as well as excited to power the automation behind the partner onboarding workflow to provide an efficient experience to Box partners,” said Markus Zirn, VP Business Development of Workato.
We're also excited to introduce the new Box Platform Partner Community, an online community for partners to receive support, connect with each other, and learn about the latest from Box. Members of the Box Platform Partner Program will receive access to the Partner Community and access all the resources they need to make their Box integration successful.
Our partner integrations extend Box into all new use cases and industries and helping our customers securely manage their information across all the applications their employees use. For example, Box customers like Pandora leverage our integration with AdobeSign to streamline their e-signature processes. In fact, we use dozens of our integrations here at Box to amplify our own productivity and collaboration, all while retaining security and compliance.
