REDWOOD CITY, Calif. – (BUSINESS WIRE) –Box, Inc. (NYSE: BOX), the leading Content Cloud, today announced a technology collaboration with FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corporation. The collaboration features an enhanced integration of Box’s DocuWorks functionality, enabling “DocuWorks documents (.xdw)” to be previewed and searched on Box.
In recent years, many companies have embraced digital transformation, promoting various work styles and business efficiency, including remote work. In this environment, more than ever, business content must be easily viewed, searched, and securely shared anytime, anywhere, and from any device.
Owned by FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corporation, DocuWorks is a document handling software used by a cumulative total of 8 million licenses in Japan and Asia Pacific. Prior to this enhancement, DocuWorks documents had to be downloaded from Box to a DocuWorks-installed PC to view. In addition, because it only took time to find desired content, sometimes hindering efficiency.
With the enhanced Box and DocuWorks integration, users will be able to store and save DocuWorks files in Box and preview them within Box, including via mobile devices. Paper-based documents are thus digitized with DocuWorks, and the digital content is stored in Box. It can then be viewed, searched, and shared securely anytime, anywhere, and on any device, dramatically reducing the time and effort required for managing and accessing critical business content. Content silos can be eliminated, and efficiency can improve across the whole business.
