News: Mobile and internal platforms will get access to the Box platform.
Unicef UK is using cloud content management and a collaboration platform from Box as it looks to be more productive.
The charity organisation which works in 190 countries, is using Box to help manage its content more effectively and to be more efficient in its work for children.
Box is being deployed across mobile and internal platforms as it looks to enable its staff to more effectively collaborate to raise funds in its goal to promote the wellbeing of children.
Unicef becomes Box’s latest customer in Europe with the organisation joining the International Rescue Committee, the UN Foundation and Oxfam.
David Quantrell, Box, SVP and GM of EMEA, said: "Unicef UK’s move to Box underscores the increased adoption we’ve seen in Europe, as organizations and companies move towards a more mobile and collaborative workforce."
"Unicef UK helps to provide essential care for the vulnerable and it is crucial that its IT systems help to support employees.
Box helps make sure staff can share and collaborate wherever they are and on any device in a secure way."
The cloud collaboration and platform company announced Box.org in May 2014 as a way to focus on helping nonprofits to achieve their missions through the use of technology.
Unicef UK works to raise funds through donations from individuals, organisations and companies in order to protect children in danger.
Box isn’t the only company that is helping organisations in the charity sector to use technology. Rackspace last year provided free managed Cloud Services in support of the ‘It’s Our World’ arts project. This helped the charity website to handle thousands of submissions from schools across the UK.
Tableau also got in on the act with its move to give UK charities free licenses for its analytics software and data training. The company provided charities with annual operating budgets of £3m or less access to the Tableau Desktop tool through the Tableau for Nonprofits programme.
This enabled them to analyse their data visually in real time, the company said: "Data can have enormous value to charities, enabling them to quickly measure the results of fundraising campaigns, tailor communications to individual supporters, discover new trends and tell more powerful stories."
