New Teambox-Box Bundle Delivers Enterprise Collaboration
Teambox, the cloud-based company redefining collaboration and business communications, today announced the availability of a powerful new Teambox-Box bundle that offers global enterprise customers up to 15 gigabytes of free enterprise storage.
Due to the growing trend of consumerization of IT in the workplace, businesses are increasingly losing control and facing escalating security risks of data due to employees storing critical material in a variety of third-party services. Another key related business concern today is maintaining compliance. Teambox squarely addresses these industry data security and compliance problems with its new Teambox-Box bundle.
Some of the highlights of the new bundle include:
- An exclusive offer to receive 15 gigabytes of free, secure storage per user from Box;
- Auditing and usage reporting via Box to improve compliance;
- Custom branded file storage so that organizations can offer their own branded collaboration platform using Teambox and Box;
- Full, two-way file syncing between Teambox and Box;
- Access and sharing of content from any device.
Email is no longer a viable option for efficient project management. Modern teams, whether they work out of the same building or thousands of miles away, require a streamlined means of group communications. The cloud enables today’s successful knowledge workers to quickly access and share content from any device, regardless of location.
Teambox offers a unified cloud platform for collaboration, communication and business applications that results in increased productivity and faster project completion times for teams. More than 150,000 businesses from around the world – from BP and the World Bank to Groupon, Southwest Airlines and University of Arizona – rely on Teambox as an essential part of their workflow.
EMI Music’s Global Team Increases Security, Improves Team Collaboration Productivity with Teambox-Box Bundle
Early adopters from around the world are taking full advantage of the new Teambox-Box bundle and experiencing strong benefits, including the global U.S.-U.K team of the popular British multinational music company, EMI Music. They are keeping collaboration and productivity high by using Teambox to manage key projects. According to Rebecca Brook, Catalogue Development Director at EMI Music, the other team collaboration tools they previously had in place – including email and Sharepoint – were not fluid enough, nor comprehensive enough for EMI Music’s fast-paced operation to be truly effective. What’s more, the other tools weren’t nearly as simple to use and intuitive as Teambox.
Like many companies today, EMI Music’s IT team also moved to ensure a higher security standard and recently implemented Box. EMI Music is reporting greater security of data and also more control and visibility of material due to versioning features with the Teambox-Box bundle.
Pricing and Availability
The new Teambox-Box bundle is available now and for all customers. There is no cost for up to five users, five projects and/or 15 gigabytes of Box storage. Beyond this, pricing starts at $5 per user, per month with unlimited storage. Discounts are offered for annual and two year subscriptions and for large teams.
“With the consumerization of IT, we’re seeing a trend of more and more customer employees storing their company files on unsecured networks. Teambox is addressing this trend by offering free secure storage from Box. Now, companies not only have unmatched team collaboration, but the confidence of accessing and sharing content from any device, any where and securely,” said Dan Schoenbaum, CEO for Teambox.
“Box and Teambox are working together to offer a secure enterprise collaboration platform that enables businesses to effectively share and manage information across teams and organizations from any device or location. Our APIs make it incredibly easy for developers and third-party applications to ingrate with Box and provide end users with an amazing suite of services that further business productivity,” said Chris Yeh, VP of Platform at Box.
“Due to the nature of our business, we do a tremendous amount of collaborating across teams. Our marketing, design, coding, and sales all work closely together. With Teambox, our company can stay fully connected on projects in real-time and in a very streamlined manner. Teambox offers us an excellent interface and management features, and is incredibly easy to use. Using Box with Teambox is an added bonus for us as we can now also meet the security standards our IT department requires for storage and secure file sharing, bringing us even greater control over our content,” said Rachel Valosik, Director of eCommerce for Griffin Technology, a rapidly growing company who offers over 800 products for mobile devices, including the popular Crayola line.
“We use Teambox to manage our business here at Society for Information Management, a network of thousands of CIOs, and VP’s of IT spread across the country. Early on we faced the challenge of organizing a remote network with a wide array of interconnected programs and needed a collaboration solution that was simple and intuitive. Teambox answered the call, we feel it’s the most complete team collaboration tool out there. Given our technical member base, security and compliance were growing concerns. We’re early adopters and we recently added the Teambox-Box bundle to our solutions package and we are quite pleased with the results,” said Steve Hufford, CEO of Society for Information Management.
“We’ve been using Teambox successfully for the past year to manage the substantial collaboration required to deliver quality information management solutions to the Department of Family and Medicine and others at the University of Arizona. The addition of secure storage from Box helps to address concerns of information security and privacy, and opens the doors to using Teambox for many new types of projects throughout the department,” said Steve Machtley, Director, FCM Informatics Group at the University of Arizona, Family & Community Medicine.
