Box takes collaboration in the cloud to a new level at BoxWorks 2021

“Hybrid work is the new normal, and it’s clear that businesses need one place to manage and secure their content,” said Diego Dugatkin, Chief Product Officer at Box. “Our vision for the Content Cloud is to integrate and power the complete content lifecycle, making it simple to collaborate from anywhere, automate workflows, and keep data secure and compliant. As we kick off our second virtual BoxWorks 2021, we’re introducing powerful new innovation for organizing your files and working together in real-time, as well as enhanced integrations that make it easy to bring content into the applications teams use every day.”

With approximately 70 percent of companies in the U.S. and UK planning to establish a hybrid work environment post-pandemic, the office of the future is being completely redefined. Work is taking on new formats and is constantly evolving to meet an organization’s needs, yet content today still reflects a static, paper-based foundation that doesn’t account for teams being in different places at different times.

All-New Box Notes

More than 100,000 businesses already leverage Box’s cloud-native platform to power digital-first experiences for employees, customers, and partners. To drive even more seamless internal and external collaboration, Box will reveal an all-new Box Notes designed to help teams collaborate no matter where they are. With this new innovation, marketing teams can create project plans to track progress and author launch announcements while collaborating in real-time across internal teams and external agency partners; sales teams can develop sales plays, call scripts, and email templates to stay in sync; and recruiting teams can use Box Notes to gather interview feedback across the hiring team to streamline the process.

The enhanced Box Notes capabilities include:

  • The ability to include a table of contents, anchor links, and more to simplify content organization and navigation within a Box Note.
  • Call out boxes so users can better highlight content.
  • Code blocks to simplify the technical collaboration process.
  • In-line cursors so users can keep track of collaborator edits in real-time.
  • Enhanced table capabilities with an easy, intuitive interface so users can structure and format content more easily.
  • Security and control capabilities, like granular permissions and access stats, since Notes is built within the Box Content Cloud.

The all-new Box Notes is expected to be generally available in January 2022 and will be included in the core Box offering at no additional cost.

New Box Mobile App Experience

To make it easier than ever to get work done from anywhere, Box will unveil an enhanced mobile app experience so customers can do more with Box from any device. Whether work is happening in the field, in an office or from home, with the all-new Box Mobile app users are connected to their content and have the flexibility to work on and protect files from anywhere.

The new mobile capabilities include:

  • An updated Capture Mode, for iOS and Android, that turns mobile devices into intelligent tools for seamlessly capturing, scanning, and uploading photos, audio, or documents, making it even easier for field teams to add content directly into Box.
  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology that recognizes text automatically and turns scanned documents into searchable PDFs with multi-language support so organizations can easily organize and find content they have uploaded to the cloud.
  • A redesigned iPad experience with a simplified layout and new drag and drop capabilities for increased productivity and improved navigation.
