Today, Box announced further momentum across Europe with two new Nordic customers, MT Højgaard and SteelSeries. Leading construction and civil engineering group, MT Højgaard, has deployed Box to enable secure information sharing and mobile access for employees. Professional gaming hardware manufacturer, SteelSeries, has brought Box’s cloud content sharing capabilities to enable secure collaboration across offices in four continents.
“Companies of all sizes across Europe are turning to the cloud to improve their businesses,” said David Quantrell, Box senior vice president and general manager of EMEA. “By moving content sharing and collaboration to the cloud, Box is helping businesses transforming the way their employees work, making organizations more efficient and competitive.”
Box powers simple and secure access to content for more than 25 million users worldwide at 225,000 businesses, including 99 percent of the Fortune 500. MT Højgaard and SteelSeries join a growing number of leading European businesses that have moved to cloud, including Anglo American, Royal HaskoningDHV, Heathrow Holdings, Gatwick Airport, and Schneider Electric.
Box has been named a leader by both Forrester Research ("The Forrester Wave™: File Sync and Share Platforms, Q3 2013."1) and Gartner, Inc. ("MarketScope for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing2") for file sync and sharing.
MT Højgaard Deploys Box to Power Collaboration and Content Management
MT Højgaard, a Danish company that specialises in construction, infrastructure projects and installation of offshore wind turbine foundations, needed a collaboration solution for its distributed field workforce. The company deployed Box to simplify content access on mobile devices and enable information sharing among colleagues as well as external partners. Simplicity, integration and connectivity were key factors in MT Højgaard’s decision to roll out Box.
“Box solves the problem of sharing information with our external parties and making our files and projects accessible on any employee device,” said Morten Lykke Jensen, IT Enterprise Architecture Manager, at MT Højgaard. “It has genuinely increased collaboration across our company. We are very impressed with how easy it was for our staff to begin using Box and with the overall control that remains within the IT team.”
SteelSeries Chooses Box to Enable International Collaboration
Located in Copenhagen, SteelSeries has offices in multiple cities around the world. The company needed a collaborative platform for storing and sharing large files across multiple regions. It also looked for a way to make it easy for employees to sync videos, 3D drawings and presentations to their desktops to access offline.
“Box meets our needs perfectly: it is a scalable solution, it has excellent performance and provides essential global accessibility,” said Rune Berendtsen, CIO, at SteelSeries. “It has helped us to decentralize management and put the power into the hands of each team. We can now provide access to information in multiple countries in an efficient, controlled and simple way.”
Box’s mission is to make businesses of all sizes more productive, competitive, and collaborative by connecting people and their most important information. Content on Box can be securely shared and easily accessed on the web, through iOS, Android and Windows Phone applications, and extended to partner applications, such as Google Apps, NetSuite and Salesforce. Headquartered in Los Altos, CA, Box is privately held and backed by several leading venture capital firms and strategic investors. To learn more about Box, visit www.box.com.
