The latest version of Teambox aggregates popular tools such as Box, Dropbox, Google Docs and Gmail to help enterprises better manage tasks, communicate across teams, and share files from a single location. Teambox 4 combines single-point collaboration, communication, and business applications into a single 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. This new reality has left companies from small to medium sized businesses though large enterprise organizations struggling to pay for and maintain disparate collaboration point solutions.

Teambox 4’s collaboration platform addresses this new landscape by enabling organizations to integrate file-sharing services, Web-based applications (including Salesforce.com and Evernote), and custom business applications with tools such as chat, tasks, and project management.

File Sharing Integration

Teams worldwide already use file management applications to share, discuss, and iterate on all types of stored files. Teambox brings 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 also created a Gmail plug-in for Chrome so end users can run Teambox inside of Gmail to view activity and add tasks all within the comfort of their own inbox.

Teambox 4’s new features include:

  • 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, align with others, and share information without the clutter or overhead of e-mail.

  • 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 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 new user interface, redesigned infrastructure, and an updated tasks section to increase the overall user experience.
