SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 8, 2013) - GoodData® and Box® today introduced the GoodBox Bash™, a cloud-based app that allows Box customers to process, view and analyze key business data about the effectiveness of highly-collaborative teams. Available immediately, GoodBox provides critical insights companies need to optimize efficiency and strategic decision-making across organizations.
"Enterprises are simultaneously facing a deluge of data and a deficit of real, actionable intelligence about how information is shared and used to drive their business," said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box. "That lack of understanding leads to risk and lost productivity. The combination of GoodData and Box solves this challenge by giving IT an unprecedented amount of visibility and real-time analytics around their business content. It's the foundation for a more secure, efficient and intelligent enterprise."
Hundreds of thousands of organizations already use Box to collaborate more efficiently and securely in the cloud. Box gives businesses the ability to store, manage and securely share critical business content across departments and geographies, enabling a better way to get work done. The GoodBox Bash from GoodData gives Box customers a visually intuitive data-analysis app that helps them manage content using best practices, KPIs and dashboards.
"We live in a new age of enterprise software -- pioneered by companies like Box and GoodData," said Roman Stanek, CEO and founder of GoodData. "Customers are no longer tied to old-fashioned, inbred software that locks them into rigid and costly technologies. In today's cloud economy, organizations can finally have the freedom to combine apps in fascinating new ways to satisfy changing business needs."
GoodBox provides the following key business benefits:
Content Security and Monitoring.
GoodBox brings a new level of security and monitoring to customers' Box accounts. With customizable alerting and monitoring, IT departments can easily track individual usage and patterns across the enterprise. Powerful visualizations compare current usage against trends, finding emerging risks like failed login attempts from unknown IP addresses, or unusually large content downloads. These capabilities result in improved information security for critical content across every department in an enterprise.
Adoption and Engagement.
With GoodBox, customers can analyze and fine-tune the use of cloud collaboration across their business. GoodBox includes out-of-the-box KPIs, reports and dashboards to help businesses of all sizes measure and understand employee engagement and adoption. By mapping the behavior of highly effective teams, customers can identify teams with lower levels of engagement, accurately assess the success of a deployment and build a blueprint for future success. By tying Box usage to other business KPIs tracked in GoodData, users can build more efficient processes and practices.
GoodBox enables executives to easily measure the value and effectiveness of content and identify which collateral has the greatest impact on their business. By tracking information shared by sales and marketing, business leaders can identify behavior common to high-performing individuals, and apply the insights to optimize their entire team. GoodBox is customizable and extensible, enabling the integration of critical systems such as CRM, HRMS and ERP. This provides a deep lens into the value of an organization's content.
"Moving forward we have a strong focus on the customer adoption of the systems and solutions that Corporate IT provides to the business," said Damian Fasciani, Technology Services Manager at REA Group. "GoodBox has the potential to allow us to measure and manage how content management is growing and being utilised across all lines of business. Measuring the impact of these tools is critical in defining how we are driving productivity through technology. Eventually, we expect to be able to provide predictive solutions based on the information GoodBox is gathering for us."
