To empower thousands of associates across national business units, Toyota's IT organization has selected Box's cloud platform to address employee needs for access to content across devices, as well as IT requirements for security and an open platform to support custom-built apps.
"It's important to arm employees with technology that drives productivity and innovation across the organization," said Zack Hicks, group vice president and CIO for Toyota. "Moving to technologies, like Box, provides a way to securely share and collaborate using any device and empowers associates to discover new ways to move our business forward."
Culture and Collaboration
In North America, Toyota operates as independent affiliates—separated by different systems, business processes and slightly different corporate cultures. By using Box, Toyota can better collaborate among affiliates, speed up decision making, share best practices and leverage the combined strength of its associates.
Additional benefits include:
Simple and intuitive user interface enables employees to easily and quickly adopt Box with little training from IT.
The platform allows for custom-built apps and integrations with other cloud solutions—allowing integration with current business workflows.
Mobile and offline access to content for traveling executives.
Extensive capabilities to govern and protect sensitive content.
"Toyota provides consumers with new ways to access real-time services in their cars. Similarly, they're carrying this creative and innovative strategy over to meet their internal business needs and are leveraging cloud and mobile technologies to transform their IT architecture," said Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box.
