SCORES Analysis

Box Inc. Strengths

In its latest quarter, Box continued to experience explosive growth with revenues soaring 28% to $123 million propelled by robust sales of its content and collaboration applications outside the United States.

The number of paying customers has increased to 76,000, up from 62,000 last year as its subscriber base has risen 27% to 56 million.

These 76,000 customers represent a total of nearly 10 million active and paying subscribers.

Box provides these enterprises with a cloud-based, Enterprise Content Collaboration platform that enables organizations of all sizes to easily and securely manage their content from anywhere on any device; collaboration capabilities for internal teams and external users; automation services to streamline tasks and processes; a content platform for implementing digitized processes; and built-in data security and governance to protect business information and reduce the cost of compliance.

In June 2017, Box and Microsoft announced an expanded partnership to jointly offer Box cloud content management with Azure to enterprise customers.

Box will use Azure as a strategic public cloud platform, and the companies commit to shared go-to-market investments, including initiatives to co-sell Box with Azure.

In addition, the partnership will enable future integration between Azure’s artificial intelligence and machine learning capabilities with Box’s cloud content management platform.

In 2016, Box acquired Wagon Analytics for its data analysis products.

As many of its customers continue to struggle with integrating multiple on-premise content management systems, Box has leapfrogged the competition by delivering a holistic and simple way to manage different content types including both structured and unstructured data, coupled with its relentless focus on capabilities such as search and security, metadata templates, as well as auditing and compliance, all of which can be easily accessible via the Cloud.

In December 2015, Box announced new solution with Salesforce, which will provide Box customers an all-new set of ways to access and share files from within Salesforce.
