LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Box [NYSE: BOX] today announced that Unicef UK is deploying Box’s cloud content management and collaboration platform to its employees. In addition to providing collaboration, Box will improve content management and mobile information sharing, both internally and externally.
“Our staff work with colleagues and partners around the world on hundreds of projects,” said Ian Williamson, ICT Director at Unicef UK. “Box will provide us with a platform to help manage our content more effectively and to be more efficient and productive in our work for children.”
“Unicef UK’s move to Box underscores the increased adoption we’ve seen in Europe, as organizations and companies move towards a more mobile and collaborative workforce,” said David Quantrell, Box senior vice president and general manager of EMEA. “Unicef UK helps to provide essential care for the vulnerable and it is crucial that its IT systems help to support employees. Box helps make sure staff can share and collaborate wherever they are and on any device in a secure way.”
