Box has added several rapidly growing customers to its roster, ranging from big technology brands such as Twitter and Spotify to now famous startup Airbnb.
Aaron Levie (pictured), Box's founder and chief executive, said that the expansion of its customer base shows how companies are looking to share and work on information in a more collaborative way to spur accelerated growth.
"Organisations of all sizes are facing new competitive forces requiring them to move faster, build smarter products, make better decisions based on data and collaborate globally," said Levie.
"This information-driven transformation requires organisations to contend with new ways of working that reshape their organisations and markets.
"We are incredibly excited to work with these organisations to empower employees with better access to information, drive more productivity company-wide, and scale with them as they grow."
The companies are using Box in similar but arguably different ways, which the cloud firm cited as an example of the flexibility of its storage and collaboration platform.
Twitter is using the service as a replacement for personal drives used by workers and to streamline project management for employees working with internal projects and external parties.
Spotify opted to use Box as a means to enable employees across multiple departments to create and work on documents kept in a central location, where they can be stored securely and worked on simultaneously.
Sofa surfing startup Airbnb uses the cloud service in a similar way to Spotify, pulling the company's content into one place where it can be better managed to aid productivity.
LinkedIn opened Box to all employees to help them work together inside and beyond the company, as well as helping media teams share large files.
Finally, online HR platform Zenefits chose Box as a way to help its sales and customer service support teams work together on information stored in a central repository.
The expansion of Box's customer base is likely to benefit other companies that build services to work with cloud storage and collaboration services, such as Cloudfind, a cloud storage management firm featured in V3's Startup Spotlight.
