We love working with the team at BOX. BOX is rapidly differentiating itself as the goto company for enterprise storage, primarily based on the enterprise application ecosystem they are building atop their storage system. We’re often asked what is the difference between BOX & Dropbox. Well, the app ecosystem is it. When I want to save my high scores somewhere, likely that’s Dropbox. But when I want to collaborate on a document, present a slide deck, show a product catalog, or sign a contract – well that’s BOX and an application from a BOX partner. Here’s BOX’s post on the 101 Billboard with their OneCloud partners including the orange lightning bolt icon for our document presentation and distribution service, Coaxion.
Over the last few days, Moprise had an awesome opportunity to join the BOX team and other OneCloud partners (CloudOn, Docusign, and NOUS) at CTIA 2012 in New Orleans to show off our newest release of Coaxion to the conference attendees. It was an amazing time meeting other members of the BOX team, OneCloud partners all striving to improve mobile productivity in the enterprise, and most of all the customers and mobile users in the enterprise who visited us at the booth. It was a great opportunity to show Coaxion, get feedback on our feature set, and hear directly from users what problems they face when mobilizing their businesses.
A company revolves around two things: email & storage. One of the storage systems many customers had in common was BOX. Everywhere we turned, customers, departments, or entire corporations were already using or beginning to use BOX in addition to internal, behind the firewall systems like SharePoint. And they needed a mobile solution that could bridge these storage systems. It made perfect sense to integrate BOX into the latest Coaxion, now available in the App Store.
In the past, we’ve written about the “scattered document” problem. This problem can increase in scope when a new storage system comes online and documents are copied between the two systems to remain accessible to everyone. This results in chaotic business workflow, inadequate compliance checking, accidental use of outdated documents, and leakage of corporate IP.
To facilitate paperless meetings and prevent document duplication, Coaxion can now access your BOX documents for secure sharing and synchronization across iPhones & iPads. If you use SharePoint only mobile clients like SharePlus or Moprise or BOX’s iPad client, your teams will copy documents between the storage systems to keep them accessible. With Coaxion, you can leave your documents on one storage system and temporarily share them with your colleagues through Coaxion discussions. And when the meeting is over, close the discussion and Coaxion will remove the documents from all the devices, leaving the truth on the correct server.
Our Box support within Coaxion also enables offline storage, editing and upload back to the BOX server.
As seen in the Apple @ Work section of iTunes, Coaxion + BOX is your solution to paperless iPad meetings. Contact us if you want more information on enterprise features to use Coaxion for a paperless boardroom or for your paperless sales portal.
Today’s cross-functional project teams need to remain nimble. As enterprise file sharing and document management systems become increasingly popular, businesses have started to run into what Moprise calls the scattered document access problem: how to effectively provide access to documents stored in a variety of content systems without compromising document access security.
Rather than selecting one exclusive content platform, we have found that corporations and individual departments often have their critical business documents scattered across a variety of hosted and cloud-based file repositories, including SharePoint, Dropbox, and BOX.net. Naturally, one could use a combination of iPad applications to download and view these files (e.g. Dropbox client + SharePoint client + PDF reader), however, usability is lost in the process of switching between so many different applications on the device.
Coaxion’s unique value proposition is that Coaxion solves the scattered enterprise document problem, allowing employees to share select documents while a project team is active, rather than granting access to all of their content in a folder. In addition, Coaxion provides a consistent user interface to access/view/edit these documents stored in remote file repositories from within the same application.
To experience seamless integration with Dropbox and SharePoint, try the free version of Coaxion available in the iTunes store. Upgrade to the Pro edition to access Box.net folders and edit documents on your device using QuickOffice.
Since the beginning, Coaxion has had superior integration with the Microsoft back office and document formats. Coaxion has the fastest, best looking, and easiest to use integration with SharePoint, in the cloud or on premise. Coaxion automatically converts Office documents to PDF so that you can read them with full fidelity – your annotations, charts, and graphs look great in Coaxion. And today we build upon that foundation with excellent Microsoft Office document editing on the iPad.
We partnered with QuickOffice to make it easy to edit and “save back” your Office documents into any of your enterprise storage repositories. We recognize departments optimize their storage service to the needs of the team and critical business documents are scattered across a variety of hosted and on-premise file repositories including SharePoint, Box, and Dropbox. One could use a combination of iPad applications to download and view these files but security, usability, and interoperability is lost in this process. In one reliable, secure, and easy to use app, Coaxion Pro supports Office document editing and saving to SharePoint, Office 365, Box, or Dropbox.
Use our in app upgrade to get the “Pro” version of Coaxion and take advantage of easy document editing and save back capabilities with your favorite editors including QuickOffice and Documents to Go. Today, editing of documents stored in “My Documents” is supported and you will be prompted to “save back” to Coaxion and “upload” to your corporate document server.
