WebDAM App, Box Partner for Cloud Collaboration
WebDAM Solutions and Box have joined forces to bring digital asset management and collaboration to the cloud. The WebDAM app for Box is available starting today.

Cloud Collaboration

"Users can now work with one‐click file sharing between Box and WebDAM, all in their preferred user environment for a seamless experience -- no searching through local folders or switching between applications," the announcement says. Box users have access files to from -- or can send files to --WebDAM. WebDAM users can now collaborate in real time with Box users. "Our goal has always been to expedite the media sharing and management process for users,” Steve Rabkin, CEO and Co‐Founder of WebDAM, says.

WebDAM Not Resting

WebDAM has had a busy start to the year. In January, the company announced its REST API, which allows developers to customize third-party apps. Last week, the company announced that it had a 97% customer retention rate in the past year.

Busy Box

Box has been exceptionally busy, too. On February 27, the company announced enhancements to its security reporting tools and a network of security partners, which includes HP, Enterproid and Good Technology. The company also announced that it has joined the Cloud Security Alliance, a nonprofit organization focused on secure computing in the cloud. In early February, project management tool provider Smartsheet announced that its tool now integrates with Box.

Box also launched a new version of Box for Android this month with an overhauled user interface. The company is giving away 50GB of file sharing and storage to users who update or download the Android app in the next month.

"To further Box's international growth, the new Box for Android app offers localized European language support, with more languages coming soon," the announcement says. Features include language support for French, Italian, German and Spanish, and the ability to view and add comments to Box files and share folders with teammates.

The WebDAM and Box collaboration announcement is timely. We focused on social business in our TweetJam last week. If you missed the TweetJam, you can catch up with our recording and recap of the online event.
