Crocodoc and Box Platform

By

We are super excited to welcome Ryan Damico (@Crocodoc) and the Crocodoc team to Box.

If you’re not familiar with Crocodoc, the company’s products are used to drive some of the most important file viewing experiences on the web. Have a resume to view on LinkedIn? That’s Crocodoc. Viewing sales collateral in Yammer? Also Crocodoc. Previewing a file in Blackboard? You get the idea.

Crocodoc’s world class HTML5 file viewer is extremely easy to deploy and provides a beautiful user experience. And this user experience is only going to get better. You can get a sneak peek at the new experience and join the thousands of developers who have signed up for early access here.

By bringing the Crocodoc team and product into Box, we will combine our expansive Content API with an increasingly rich set of tools and services to help power immersive user experiences with content across the Internet.

So, what’s next?

  • We will continue to develop, improve and innovate on the Crocodoc platform, which will become a strategic cornerstone of Box’s overall platform strategy
  • We will offer a free version of Crocodoc to go along with today’s paid options
  • We will deploy Crocodoc’s file viewing tech throughout our current products (our web app, native mobile apps, etc.)

If you’re interested in learning more, you can sign up for a Crocodoc API key here and see the API in action in the Crocodoc test console. As always, we look forward to working with you. Only now, we have more good stuff to share. :-)
