Onboarding

Streamline the onboarding process

Accelerate your onboarding process

Bringing your customers, vendors and/or employees on board faster presents can create a substantial uplift in revenues, retention and more. Sounds straightforward, but it's difficult to execute because current onboarding solutions are manual, costly and inefficient. These systems lack the ability to securely store, manage, and ensure compliance for sensitive onboarding documentation, such as W-2s, contracts, and vendor agreements. With Box, teams can shorten the onboarding cycle, reduce errors, secure sensitive data, and deliver a seamless experience — for employees, vendors or clients — from beginning to end.

"We're always looking to make the technology of onboarding people easy [...] A lot of the Box interaction is invisible to them. But behind the scenes, there's plumbing that puts it together."
