Today, Google took to its Work blog to announce the new partnership between Google Apps for Work and Box. The latter will now integrate with Docs and Springboard for further efficiency in business practices. Box will also serve as a third-party repository for Docs, Sheets, and Slides. The cool thing about that is users will be able to create new files and edit collaboratively within Box itself.

Google also announced that it is working to integrate its Springboard enterprise search tool with Box. Through this, users can find the information or files they need regardless of where that all may be hosted — whether that is in Gmail, Drive, Docs, or Box. That is definitely helpful for organizations that use Google Apps and Box simultaneously.

By offering its customers even more flexibility and productivity options, Google has taken another step in its attempt to become more prevalent in the enterprise space. It is interesting to see the collaboration between the two companies, especially since Google has its own cloud storage service built into Apps.
