LOS ALTOS, Calif. – May 08, 2014 — /BackupReview.info/ — Box announced today that it will bring its cloud content collaboration platform to General Electric (NYSE: GE). With this agreement, GE will empower its employees to intuitively collaborate and securely share files from any computer, phone, or tablet.

“In today’s mobile-first, cloud-first world, providing our employees with secure access to content at any time using any device is critical to creating a more productive, connected workforce,” said Jamie Miller, senior vice president and CIO of GE. “Moving to a cloud technology like Box allows us to centralize all of our content and provides more efficiency, speed and simplicity for our employees.”

“GE is at the forefront of bringing intelligent data to industrial machines and processes to create new ways of working,” said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. “They’re applying that same creativity and innovation to their information technology strategy, empowering employees with better access to information, and ultimately driving more productivity and collaboration organization-wide. We are incredibly excited to work with a company that’s helping to drive and define the information economy.”

GE’s IT organization, tasked with bringing innovative, cutting-edge technology to roughly 300,000 employees located in more than 170 countries, selected Box to:
