Eurostar taps Box for cloud collaboration
High speed train operator Eurostar said it plans to deploy Box’s cloud-based file storage and collaboration platform across its European operations. The announcement comes just days before Box is set to IPO.
Eurostar plans to roll the platform out for the company’s 1,600 employees, and said the move will help centralise security management of collaboration across the three countries where it operates.
We have teams working on multiple projects across three key countries, said Antoine de Kerviler, chief information officer at Eurostar.
Box provides us with a smooth, unified, way of accessing content and a brilliant collaboration platform for our disparate workforce. Box has helped us to transform the way we access information and fundamentally change the way we work across projects, he added.
David Quantrell, Box senior vice president and general manager of EMEA said: Eurostar’s deployment underscores the increased adoption we’ve seen in Europe, as companies of all sizes move towards a more mobile and collaborative workforce. Box helps enable secure content sharing, collaboration and mobility with robust admin controls to securely run an essential service connecting the UK with the rest of the Continent. Eurostar is a leading example in the transportation industry of companies moving to cloud technologies.
