Box for ECM

A powerful, secure way to manage your content


Today's businesses run in the cloud

Content is at the core of digital transformation. Yet the Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems most organizations use are complex, expensive and outdated — and hold businesses back from truly transforming the way they work. With Cloud Content Management from Box, an open, API-first platform enables content to flow effortlessly between your teams, partners and customers, giving you a powerful way to run your business without compromising on security, governance and compliance.

Take control of the content lifecycle

Box makes it easy to manage the entire document lifecycle, from creation to retention and disposition. Features like co-authoring, version history and file locking help you stay on top of your content — so your files don’t end up managing you. And with powerful content security controls and governance policies, you can easily comply with regulatory mandates and data retention policies.

Smarter processes for better business

Improve efficiency across your entire organization by automating and extending your business processes. From built-in workflow automation to manage lightweight processes, to cloud-based APIs and BPM integrations, Box lets you easily build and integrate processes across other applications and ecosystems. Plus, Box applies machine learning capabilities to automatically tag content and trigger routing, making it even easier to improve business processes at scale.

“Box is a great content management platform. Fairly quickly, we ended up with more than 100,000 Box users. It combines different legacy systems with a very easy-to-use interface and all the enterprise controls we need to operate. It’s a pretty integral part of our IT strategy.”

- Hervé Coureil, CDO, Schneider Electric
