Box boekt terreinwinst in Europa dankzij uitgebreid partnernetwerk

Box maakt vandaag bekend dat zijn Europese partnernetwerk sinds de lancering vorig jaar al 130 bedrijven aan zich heeft weten te binden. Het afgelopen jaar heeft Box zijn netwerk in Europa verdubbeld met samenwerkingen met bedrijven als Capgemini, KERNEL Networks, Bechtle-Comsoft, EVRY en CRMWaypoint.

"De combinatie van de cloud, mobiel werken en hang naar meer samenwerking heeft een sterke invloed op de manier waarop bedrijven informatie structureren en beheren”, zegt Wayne Cook, VP van Channel and Alliances, EMEA. “Deze verschuiving vraagt om nieuwe strategieën en een nieuwe mentaliteit, en onze partners in Europa gebruiken Box om deze doelen te verwezenlijken", zegt Wayne Cook, VP van Channel and Alliances, EMEA. " We zoeken goede partners die onze manier van samenwerken begrijpen. Dankzij dit selectieve proces hebben we een sterk en verreikend partnernetwerk kunnen opzetten."

Box richt zich op drie soorten partners: systeemintegrators die zijn overgestapt op digitale services, serviceproviders die cloud services bevorderen, en het kanaalnetwerk. Het afgelopen jaar hebben meerdere nieuwe partners in deze gebieden zich verbonden aan het groeiende Europese netwerk van Box, zoals:

  • Pan-EMEA: Capgemini
  • Verenigd Koninkrijk: Bytes, Softcat, Insight en Methods
  • Frankrijk: KERNEL Networks, Econocom, Specialist Computer Centres, Niji en Ei Technologies
  • Duitsland: Bechtle-Comsoft, CANCOM, Deutsche Telekom en SoftwareOne
  • Scandinavië: EVRY en Envoya
  • Nederland: CRMWaypoint

Box biedt eenvoudige en veilige toegang tot content, overal en op elk apparaat. Het bedrijf heeft meer dan 25 miljoen gebruikers wereldwijd bij meer dan 225.000 bedrijven, waaronder 99 procent van de Fortune 500. Box is door zowel Forrester Research ("The Forrester Wave™: File Sync and Share Platforms, Q3 2013."1) als Gartner, Inc. ("MarketScope for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing"2) bestempeld als toonaangevend op het gebied van synchroniseren en delen van bestanden.
