Redwood City, California – (work wire) – Box, Inc. announced. (NYSE: BOX), the leading Content Cloud company, today announced a technology collaboration with FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corporation. Collaboration features improved integration of the DocuWorks functionality in Box, which allows previewing and searching of “DocuWorks documents (.xdw)” on Box.
In recent years, many companies have embraced digital transformation, enhancing different work styles and business efficiency, including remote work. In this environment, more than ever, business content must be safely viewed, searched, and shared anytime, anywhere, and on any device.
DocuWorks is owned by FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corporation, a document processing software used by a cumulative total of 8 million licenses in Japan and Asia Pacific. Prior to this improvement, DocuWorks documents had to be downloaded from Box to a computer with DocuWorks installed to view them. In addition, since only file name search was available, it took extra time to find the required content, which sometimes hampered efficiency.
With enhanced Box and DocuWorks integration, users will be able to store and save DocuWorks files in Box and preview within Box, including via mobile devices. Thus, paper documents are digitized using DocuWorks, and digital content is stored in Box. They can then be viewed, searched, and shared securely anytime, anywhere and on any device, dramatically reducing the time and effort required to manage and access critical business content. Content silos can be eliminated, and efficiency can be improved across the entire company. In addition, Box’s full suite of advanced security functions can be used to satisfy both convenience, efficiency and security, allowing users to focus on their work with peace of mind.
We have received approval from Toru Fujita, General Manager, Business Services Solutions, Enterprise Document Solutions Business Group, FUJIFILM Business Innovation Corporation for this announcement.
“We warmly welcome Box’s expansion of support for DocuWorks documentation through this collaboration. Through DocuWorks, Fujifilm Business Innovation supports the digitization of business processes based on the concept of “electronic office” that reproduces the ease of handling paper on a computer. Through this collaboration, the service will enable Box users can directly search for and view necessary documents “anywhere” and support a variety of business styles that are not limited to the site, thus contributing to accelerating customers’ digital transformation (DX).We will continue to strengthen our partnership with Box and offer a variety of solutions to help our customers improve their productivity and efficiency.”
“Many users in Asian markets including Japan are using Box Content Cloud and DocuWorks together to help them conduct secure work from anywhere,” said Diego Dugatkin, Chief Product Officer at Box. “With this preview improvement, the integration between Box and DocuWorks will be safer and more secure. Users will be able to easily view DocuWorks files in Box in real time, from anywhere or from any device, making it easier to collaborate on content.”
