Cloud collaboration firm Box is partnering with Autodesk, TIBCO, Tidemark, CollabNet and other companies in a reseller program in a bid to expand its footprint in the enterprise market.
Box Partner Network will include about a dozen third-party vendors that will resell Box’s cloud computing services the large companies. The launch of the network follows an earlier move by the company last October to make it easier for vendors to integrate Box into their offerings.
Third-party resellers can be a boon for customers because they ease the onboarding process because they typically provide a single point of contact rather than requiring customers to go through several people.
