Microsoft Office gets in the Box

Box has been further integrated into Office 365.

By James Nunns

Box has announced two new integrations with Microsoft Office which will enable businesses to access content from any device or platform, making it easy for businesses to collaborate more effectively in the cloud.

As inaugural members in Microsoft‘s new Cloud Storage Partner Program for Office 365, Box are joined by Citrix and Salesforce. Box will support both native integrations for both Office for iPad and iPhone as well as for Office Online.

Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box, said: "We’re excited to deepen our commitment to openness in the enterprise through Microsoft’s new program. We’re committed to delivering innovation that puts the customer first and allows enterprises to choose the tools they want to be successful."

The new integrations will enable users to open, edit and save documents back to Box from directly within Office for iOS and to establish a more seamless connection between Box and Office Online. The new integrations will work in conjunction with Box’s existing Office 365 integration for the desktop and the recently announced Outlook for iPhone and iPad.

Kirk Koenigsbauer, CVP, Office 365 Client Apps and Services, said: "The Cloud Storage Partner Program for Office 365 exhibits our commitment to make Office more extensible. It’s a great opportunity for storage providers to enhance their existing solutions with productivity applications used by more than one billion people for communication, document creation and collaboration."

Currently more than 44,000 businesses including 48% of the Fortune 500 and 32 million users have Box as a platform for business productivity and enterprise content collaboration. Box is available as an integration with Office for iOS for no fee and Box will be available as an integration with Office Online later this year.
