Teambox Delivers Industry's Only Collaboration Platform That Brings Notes, Group Chat and Tasks to Millions of Dropbox, Box and Google Docs Customers

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 7, 2012) -

  • Teambox 4 is the broadest collaboration platform available today
  • New integrations combine leading file sharing solutions, group chat and notes in a single location with integration into any Web-based application
  • Teambox changes the way companies and teams work together to get more done and faster

Teambox, the cloud-based company redefining collaboration and business communications, today announced the release of Teambox 4. This new platform aggregates best-of-breed tools, such as Box, Dropbox, Google Docs and Gmail, to help companies better manage tasks, communicate across teams and share files, all from a single location. Teambox combines single point collaboration, communication and business applications into one easy-to-use platform, enabling organizations of any size to get more done, faster and with better accuracy.

Changing business needs and social factors are driving organizations to work differently. As a result, this new reality has left small- to medium-sized businesses, through large enterprise organizations, struggling to pay for and maintain heavyweight enterprise solutions and disparate collaboration point solutions. Teambox 4 is a unique collaboration platform addressing this new landscape. It is enabling organizations to integrate file-sharing services and Web-based applications, including Salesforce.com and Evernote, and customize business applications with tools, such as chat, tasks and project management. With the addition of these full-featured capabilities, Teambox 4 is the industry's only collaboration "dashboard" transforming business communication.

File Sharing Integration
Teams worldwide already use file management applications to share, discuss and iterate all types of stored files. Teambox is the first vendor to bring collaboration to millions of Box, Dropbox and Google Docs customers by providing chat, discussions and notes in a single, easy-to-use platform.

Additionally, Teambox has created a Gmail plug-in for Google Chrome. This new plug-in enables end users to run Teambox inside of Gmail to view activity and add tasks, all within the comfort of a user's inbox.

Teambox 4 New Features

  • Teambox Notes - Similar to Evernote, but designed for large teams, Teambox Notes delivers a drag-and-drop interface that can be used to take notes, instantly collaborate, get aligned and share information, without the clutter or overhead of email.

  • Customized Application Integration - Teambox 4 is built with an internal API, enabling users to import any Web-based application into Teambox. With this new feature, Teambox now offers a single, cohesive platform for any company to run their entire business. Many customers have integrated Salesforce.com, GotoMeeting and other key software-as-a-service (SaaS) applications into Teambox for a single "business dashboard".

  • Integrated Group Chat - This key feature allows end users to quickly create conversations between teams to assign tasks and due dates to projects enabling real-time collaboration.

  • Enhanced User Experience - Teambox 4 includes several enhancements, including a new UI, redesigned infrastructure and an updated tasks section to increase the overall user experience.

Comments on the News
"There has been a huge paradigm shift in our industry; our customers were fed up with the massive, lengthy implementations required by Sharepoint and other antiquated solutions. With the 'consumerization of IT,' business users are selecting and rapidly adopting their own collaboration software," said Dan Schoenbaum, CEO of Teambox. "We are proud to bring our customers the industry's first team collaboration platform that integrates tools, such as Dropbox, Box, Google Docs and Gmail, all centralized into one solution. Teambox helps businesses get started in seconds and get work done faster and easier, while saving our customers time and money."

"We evaluated over 20 business collaboration tools, including SharePoint, Huddle, Asana and Basecamp, and found Teambox to be the most intuitive and comprehensive platform available," stated Jason Gombos, Sharepoint Administrator for Kelly Services. "Teambox goes beyond a 'tool,' bringing together all of the business applications we need in one centralized location. With Teambox, we get more done and with better accuracy and efficiency."

"Teambox is a phenomenal collaboration platform," stated Doug Monohan, CEO of Mobilezapp. "It combines the power of email, chat and telephone into one easy-to-use online solution. Quite frankly, I do not know how we'd run our business without Teambox."

"We tried Asana and other collaboration tools, but those products could not bring together the information we needed to work better and smarter," stated Rachel Valosik, director of eCommerce for Griffin Technology. "Teambox provides a much broader set of collaboration applications making collaboration, file management and team discussions very easy for our team. And unlike other offerings, it is so easy to use."

Pricing and Availability
Teambox 4 is available now. There is no cost for up to five users, five projects and/or five gigabytes. Beyond this, pricing starts at $5 per user, per month with unlimited storage. Discounts are offered for annual and two year subscriptions and for large teams.
