Our CEO, Aaron Levie, may not be on stage yet for his #BoxWorks keynote today, but that doesn’t mean we’re waiting to share some of our important product and partnership news! This morning, we announced a brand new technology that lets you quickly add access to Box content anywhere – helping you save time while working in other apps.
Box Embed is a new HTML5-based framework available today that makes it easy to embed the entire Box experience anywhere people work. Just grab a quick embed code from the sharing options to the right of any file or folder on Box, add to your website, forum or blog, and voila! – instant access to all the Box features you love, like uploads, search, comments, sharing, tagging coworkers and Box Edit for quick file edits. It even uses shared link permissions, so you can add or restrict collaborators on your content directly within Box Embed (plus rest easy knowing your files are safe).
But that’s not all – to demonstrate just how powerful Box Embed can be for customers of all sizes when it’s available anywhere in the cloud, we’re announcing today that ten leading enterprise software partners will be using the technology inside their apps. That means if you’re a user of Box and Concur, Cornerstone OnDemand, DocuSign, Eloqua, FuzeBox, Jive, NetSuite, Oracle, SugarCRM or Zendesk, you’ll be able to access the whole Box experience and work with your content from within those apps as well.
By making it simple for our partners to build integrations using the HTML5 framework, we’re delivering on our vision of helping you work with all your important content and keep it centralized on Box – no matter where you work.
The updated versions of Box for NetSuite and Box for SugarCRM featuring the new Box Embed technology are available to customers this week, with the rest on their way soon.
