Oxfam Chooses Box For Collaboration Across 90 Countries
Oxfam is using Box for cloud content sharing and collaboration platform to support employees working across more than 90 countries.
In addition to providing mobile access to content, Box will also centralise management and security for Oxfam’s 17 international affiliates.
â€œWe have teams across the globe working on hundreds of projects,â€ said Grant Holton-Picard, technical infrastructure manager at Oxfam. â€œBox will provide us a smooth, unified, way of accessing content and a brilliant collaboration platform across the Oxfam family. Being able to share precious information instantaneously across continents â€“ from capital cities to the remotest locations â€“ is vital for improving staff collaboration and organizational impact.â€
Box says its system is used worldwide by 27 million individuals and 240,000 businesses. Oxfam joins other non-profits in using Box, such as the International Rescue Committee, the UN Foundation and the Livestrong Foundation.
A year ago, Oxfam announced 125 redundancies in the UK as it closed some of its regional offices and centralised its business services. The charity said that technology had helped it make the cuts.
