About the Customer
Faber and Faber Limited, often abbreviated to Faber, is an independent publishing house in the United Kingdom. Faber has published some of the most well-known literature in the English language.
It was founded in 1929. In 2006 the company was named the KPMG Publisher of the Year.
Scope and Challenges
The leadership of the publishing company wanted to transition employees away from traditional ways of publishing to a much more modern and efficient system, and meanwhile, have increased efficiency and collaboration.
They were in need of software that will empower a more mobile and collaborative workforce who can work anywhere and on any device.
Outcome and Implications
The collaboration between Faber & Faber and Box began in 2015 by deploying Box's product as the company's Content Management solution.
With the transformation, content became always accessible and the employees were able to meet crucial publishing deadlines more effectively. Thanks to Box, Faber has become much more efficient and more professional in its use of technology.
Project sponsor Nigel Marsh, Operations Director at Faber, stated: “The introduction of Box has given the company more peace of mind around data security whilst also allowing flexible access to our content.”
“Faber, founded almost a century ago, is a classic example of an established company modernizing its workflow through new technology.”
“By thinking differently about how its teams collaborate and share information, Faber has been able to increase output and now has a more mobile and productive workforce,” said David Quantrell, SVP and GM of EMEA at Box.
