The University of Stirling has rolled out Box to 12,500 staff and students to make it easier to collaborate and share documents.
Graham Millar, head of IT systems and information services at the university, explained that using Box as part of a wider digital strategy will make the university more efficient internally and with external partners.
“University of Stirling students and staff need additional technology to empower them to work in a more flexible and effective way,” he said.
“Box has helped us to transform collaboration at a staff and student level as well as with external agencies, which makes us a much more efficient and productive university.”
The deal is the latest university in the UK for Box, which has already snapped up the likes of University of Dundee and Lancaster University. David Quantrell, SVP and general manager for EMEA at Box, said that organisations of all types are turning to digital tools to improve operations.
“The European education sector is undergoing a huge transformation from traditional legacy IT solutions to much more user-friendly, flexible and scalable cloud platforms,” he added.
“Universities, like businesses, are turning to cloud technologies as they look for new ways to be more productive.”
