Teambox Corners the Education Market

(Marketwire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) REDWOOD CITY, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/27/13 -- Teambox, the cloud-based company redefining collaboration and business communications, today announced that more than 60 prestigious universities across the United States are implementing its cloud-collaboration solution to help their communities of students, faculty and staff access, share and manage content from any device, anywhere.

Within the past year, Teambox has grown its business by over 400 percent, and has made significant strides in the education vertical. Some of the nation's leading higher education institutions including Auburn University, Colgate University, Cornell University, Harvard University, Rice University, Stanford University, University of California Irvine and University of Michigan top this growing list of schools that have adopted the Teambox collaboration solution. Teambox has provided these well-established educational institutions with a means to communicate, collaborate and streamline work processes in an efficient, effective manner.

Teambox is helping transform productivity for educational institutions with a single, cloud-based platform by adding a full suite of powerful collaboration solutions to best-of-breed tools like Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and Gmail to enable users to seamlessly move between projects to work more efficiently.

"At Western Wyoming Community College, we needed a platform to deliver our Problem-Based Learning nursing program in an online environment. This teaching methodology is highly interactive, and traditional learning management systems fell short of our needs," said David Bodily, assistant professor of nursing. "After vetting many groupware solutions, we found Teambox to be far and away the best fit for the intensive collaboration needs of our students. Teambox is integral to the learning of our students and we could not work as well as we do without it." In addition to bringing collaboration to file sharing vendors, Teambox features include tasks, notes, conversations, group chat, calendaring and Gantt charts. Teambox built an API that integrates with numerous solutions so users are able to easily migrate Web apps they currently know and love (such as Evernote, GoToMeeting, etc.) into the Teambox platform. Enabling users to customize their platform creates a comprehensive collaboration solution to meet everyone's needs and makes it easier for users to get more done from any device, anywhere.

"We chose Teambox for its intuitive interface, mobile compatibility, efficient task management, project overview visualizations and ability to easily integrate with numerous other web-based applications vital to our workflow," said Aaron Pompei, director of multimedia strategy and development at Savannah College of Art and Design. "Teambox is the core application for coordination, communication and collaboration within our video production process for the Virtual Lecture Hall, a comprehensive educational video resource for students. Without a tool like Teambox, our ability to work in an agile manner wouldn't be possible. This collaboration platform has been a core component supporting the Virtual Lecture Hall project and ensuring effective and efficient team work."
