Salesforce and Box Partner to Improve Enterprise Productivity in the Cloud
Salesforce and Box are introducing new solutions to help businesses be more collaborative, productive and connected. The companies are rolling out an improved content experience with Salesforce Files Connect for Box, as well as a developer toolkit with a Box SDK for Salesforce.
“As companies are becoming more mobile, social and connected, it is critical that anyone can instantly access the information they need, no matter where it is stored,” said Nasi Jazayeri, executive vice president of Community Cloud, Salesforce. “With Salesforce Files Connect for Box, files are available in context, exactly where they are needed – attached to an opportunity, a marketing campaign, a case or any object – creating a frictionless experience for users.”
Available in pilot in February 2016, with general availability in the summer, Salesforce Files Connect for Box will allow Box users to access to Box files from Salesforce. They will be able to search, browse, share, and collaborate on Box files via any device, all while the existing access permissions and security of the original file are maintained by Box. Content managed on Box can be connected directly to records, users and groups within Salesforce.
Currently available for free on GitHub for developers, Box SDK for Salesforce is a toolkit that enables developers to leverage Box content management within any app built on the Salesforce App Cloud. The SDK also allows developers to easily embed Box’s content management functionality into Salesforce processes and customizations.
