Box also introduced two Box Platform offerings – Developer and Enterprise – to bring the full power of the Box Platform to customers, enabling them to build transformative experiences for their own customers, partners and broader ecosystem.

New Ways to Work in the Cloud

Three New Types of Content to View and Interact with on Box
Today, Box introduced support for content preview and collaboration of three new content types in Box – HD video, DICOM images and interactive 3D. The nature of content on the web has transitioned from static text and images to a more immersive, interactive and dynamic experience for a number of industries including media & entertainment, healthcare and retail. With support for these three new content types, Box has made content a first-class experience on the web, enabling collaboration that’s secure, streamlined and central to workflows in every industry.

Enhanced Partner Integrations to Work with Content in Leading Apps
The company also announced support for three new, native integrations with leading partners that simplify workflow and accelerate collaboration. In addition to its existing integration with Microsoft Office Online, Box is developing new integrations with some of the most popular services that customers use to work with files in Box, including Adobe Document Cloud, Autodesk A360 and DocuSign. Customers can create new files or open previewed content directly from Box in the solution of their choice to complete a wide range of tasks like signing contracts, filling out forms, editing images or even designing 3D graphics. The integrations improve productivity and simplify workflow by eliminating the need to download a file from Box, open it in third-party applications and then upload back into Box.

Box Capture
Box also introduced Box Capture, its first mobile-only app for the enterprise. Box Capture is a new iOS app that securely and instantly connects content captured in the field to core business processes. Built exclusively for iOS, Box Capture unlocks entirely new workflows across every industry, helping field workers collect photos, videos and documents and share that content with a distributed network of knowledge workers using an iPhone or iPad. In healthcare, medical professionals can use Box Capture to share patient images, videos and documents with another care provider in a HIPAA-compliant setting. Oil and gas companies can document the security of a distributed field operation via Box Capture, immediately triggering remediation workflows on Box if a potential safety issue is recorded. Retail companies can leverage Box Capture during retail audits to submit status of inventory and in-store displays.

Transforming your Business with the Box Platform
Jeetu Patel, chief strategy officer and SVP of Platform at Box, introduced a new way for customers and partners to build enterprise apps with the Box Platform. The Box Platform enables a business to power any application, for any user, without requiring the user to log into a Box account. Designed for businesses of all sizes and industries, Box Platform customers and partners can leverage a new user and authentication model to quickly build and deploy secure applications in a way that’s completely tailored to their business, and transform the way they interact with their customers.

Box Platform will be available as two plans, Developer and Enterprise. Developer is a free plan that allows customers and developers to test and design their app experience. The Enterprise plan is designed for enterprise customers building apps that are generally available and in production. Pricing for ISVs building on the Box Platform will be announced in the coming months.

“The digital enterprise requires a new platform that delivers powerful, engaging and secure content experiences,” said Jeetu Patel. “The Box Platform reimagines how we can transform our customers’ business by creating collaborative applications that are tailored for every industry and enterprise-ready on day one. We can’t wait to see what our customers build on the Box Platform.”

In addition to showing customers how they can reimagine work in the cloud with Box, the company also outlined how companies are transforming their business with the Box Platform. The Box Platform allows customers including General Electric, CAA, Schneider Electric, Eli Lilly and FICO to build engaging, custom content experiences for both their internal and external audiences.
