Bringing Box’s Modern Content Platform to Salesforce

Today, we're incredibly excited to announce an all-new set of ways that Box customers can interact with and share content from Salesforce. We've been working with Salesforce for many years now and we're thrilled to bring Box’s leading enterprise content management and collaboration to the world's number one customer success platform.

Starting with a pilot today, we'll let customers seamlessly take any of the content they have stored in Box and access it throughout multiple Salesforce experiences, including mobile apps, customer records, Chatter feeds, and more. Sharing proposals with customers, collaborating on contracts and ensuring sales reps have the most up-to-date marketing information has never been easier.

We're also introducing our first Box SDK for Salesforce, which allows customers and developers to embed Box’s world-class collaboration and content management capabilities into Salesforce-built applications. Across retail, life sciences, financial services, and many other industries, enterprises can now leverage Salesforce and Box's platforms together to seamlessly design modern digital applications that transform key enterprise workflows. 

Today’s announcement underscores Box's vision of becoming the modern content platform for the enterprise. As more and more IT systems in the enterprise move to modern cloud platforms -- ERP moving to Netsuite, HRIS to Workday, Email to Office 365, CRM to Salesforce -- enterprise need to ensure their critical business files and content can be accessed from across all these services. Unlike in the client/server world where enterprises ended up with sprawled data across file servers, content management systems, FTP sites, and collaboration tools, this doesn't have to be the case in the cloud era. Enterprises should have a singular way to manage and control their content, no matter what application or location they're accessing that data from.

To deliver on this vision, we need a broad ecosystem of leading applications that work together to drive interoperability across the cloud, reducing the need to duplicate data and information between systems. And, with this new level of openness, customers can begin to choose the platforms that work best for their business, instead of being forced to buy all of their apps from a single vendor.

As Box continues to deliver on our promise of modern content platform for their enterprise, we'll cultivate a strong partner ecosystem to ensure you can get to your critical business content from any application at any time. We're delighted to be partnering with Salesforce to drive this vision even further, and you can expect more partnerships with other leading cloud providers to come!
