Box bills itself as "a leader in cloud content management", and opened the box to another win, announcing that REA Group, which owns and operates the leading real estate and commercial property advertising sites in Australia, realestate.com.au and realcommercial.com.au, has transitioned its workforce to Box.
The transition first started in 2012, when REA Group "began moving its employees to Box", but today, Box has now become REA's "central content management tool, and a key driver of digital transformation across the organisation".
Luke Fletcher, senior manager of Enterprise Technology at REA Group, said: "When we first deployed Box, we noticed a significant improvement in the way some of our teams were able to work and operate.
“For over five years, Box has provided us with a secure, unified place to store work and collaborate with teams based in multiple locations, as well as customers outside of the business,” Fletcher added.
Since its initial deployment, REA Group reports having expanded its use of Box to:
- Centralise, index, secure, and make content available for seamless internal and external collaboration;
- Provide complete visibility into and control over account activity;
- Integrate with Okta to provide a secure, flexible, and fully digital experience for employees; and
- Leverage Box Shuttle to help migrate legacy content to Box
Scott Leader, vice-president of Box ANZ, said: “REA Group is a leader in the Australian real estate space, it is showing leadership by providing cloud technology for its employees to work collaboratively.
“We are thrilled that Box is part of REA Group’s digital transformation, and that we can help power collaboration leading to greater productivity across the company.”
REA Group’s Luke Fletcher added: “Since deployment, Box has become our central content collaboration tool which enables our teams to work in fundamentally different ways.
"Box has helped us to transform the way we work together on content making us much more productive and efficient, it has played a significant part in REA Group becoming a truly digital workplace.”
REA Group joins a growing list of multinational organisations who have moved to Box, including "General Electric, AstraZeneca, London Met Police, Komatsu, and Dubai Airports".
