When you spend more time in the field than at your desk, you need tools that keep up with the way you work. Box Capture makes it easy to take photos, videos and document scans when you're on the go and instantly save them to the cloud, automatically triggering workflows with your team so they can react to information from the field in real time.

How it works

Capture information as you go

There's no need for scanners, hefty email attachments or USB drives. Box Capture lets you take document scans, photos, videos and audio on your iPhone or iPad and automatically uploads to Box, instantly delivering field data to key teams and connected business systems. Plus, Box Capture bypasses the camera roll, so you don't use up space on your phone.

Connect your field teams to your entire organization

Mobilize and dispatch mission-critical data in real time to specific field teams located anywhere. Box Capture lets you tag specific people so they know the information is meant for them, and other team members can use comments to discuss captured photos and videos. Plus, Box Capture automatically includes metadata, such as when and where the photo was taken.

Go paperless and improve field data collection

Paper forms have limitations, but scanning and video capabilities from Box Capture give field workers the flexibility they need to collect accurate and thorough information. Plus, Box Capture lets you automatically trigger notifications and new tasks for your team members based on files uploaded, raising the bar for field data collection.

Work online or off, and stay secure

No internet, no problem — when you're working in a remote area, Box Capture will automatically sync content when you’re back online. Plus, photos, videos, audio recordings and scanned documents captured with the app are saved to Box instead of your personal camera roll, so business information is always secure and compliant.
