Cloud data storage and data sharing company Box is now partnering with mobile operator EE to offer its service to SMEs, and has also struck a new data sharing deal at Gatwick Airport.

EE says it is working with Box to promote the importance of cloud collaboration to its SME customers to ensure secure file sharing and encourage collaborative employee cultures.

And London Gatwick Airport is strengthening employee productivity by providing Box to its 2,500 staff. Box will help support Gatwick’s cloud services, including Okta cloud-based identity management, across all mobile devices.

Michael Ibbitson, CIO at London Gatwick, said: “A key focus for me is how to improve integration of the massive amount of data and IT services we have available to us, so we can offer a better service to passengers."

He said: "By using Box we will improve the way our teams communicate and share information from anywhere, allowing our staff to be more productive and connected. This connected team will have a significant impact on the passenger experience, which we're always striving to improve."

Box has just been awarded a place on the G-Cloud Framework 4 by the Government Procurement Service (GPS) for the supply of software-as-a-service (SaaS) systems.

The GPS cloud framework can be used by organisations across the UK public sector, including central government, local government, health, education, devolved administrations, emergency services, defence and not for profit organisations.
