Integration of Box and Slack

Box Inc. is a cloud content management company that gives users the ability to access content from any place at any time, while Slack is a team cplaboration app that allows users to connect with others in their organization using messages, archiving, and other tops. Both of these companies are based out of San Francisco, California. Box was founded in 2005 by Aaron Levie, while Slack was created in 2014 by Stewart Butterfield and Eric Costello.

Box has raised $250 million in venture capital funding for its business. Slack is backed by investors like Andreessen Horowitz, Thrive Capital, Google Ventures, and Accel Partners. Aaron Levie is CEO of Box, while Stewart Butterfield is co-founder and CEO of Slack. Slack has over 10 million daily active users, which is twice as many as Box’s 5 million daily active users. It is estimated that the total market value of Slack is over $5 billion, while Box’s is around $2 billion. Box reported revenues of $124 million in 2016, while Slack’s revenue in 2016 is estimated to be $200 million.

Integration of Box and Slack

Box and Slack can be integrated in order to improve their capability in aiding businesses with their daily operations. However, integration may cause the two companies to go head-to-head against each other. Integration may also affect how each company operates separately. For example, if Box integrates with Slack, it may give businesses an option to use both apps instead of just one. As Slack grows in popularity, Box could benefit from its association with Slack. However, this could also mean that Box would have to compete against Slack for business. In addition, since the two companies operate differently, integration may cause confusion among users who may not know if they should use Box or Slack for different tasks.

Benefits of Integration of Box and Slack

Integration between Box and Slack may allow businesses to have a better understanding of their employees’ work style and productivity. For instance, a company may use a messaging app like Slack to share a report with one or more team members. Another company may choose to use Box to share a report with a group of clients or customers. This type of integration could make handling business operations easier by allowing businesses to connect with each other easily and quickly through messages and documents. In addition, integration between Box and Slack could make transferring files from one platform to the other simpler. They could also be used to share information about a workplace culture throughout an organization.

The benefits of integrating Box and Slack include making it easier for businesses to handle their daily operations and improving communication between different departments within a company. The integration of these two companies also allows businesses to better understand how their employees work and communicate with others. However, integrating these two cloud content management platforms may cause confusion among users because they may not know which platform to use for different tasks. Integrating them could also increase competition between Box and Slack for business since users will have the option of using both apps for different tasks.
