Eurostar moves workforce to Box for mobile content access

Box today announced that Eurostar, the high-speed railway service connecting London with Paris and Brussels, is bringing Box’s cloud content sharing and collaboration platform to its 1,600 employees. In addition to providing mobile access to content, Box will also centralize management and security for Eurostar’s internal and external collaboration.

“We have teams working on multiple projects across three key countries,” said Antoine de Kerviler, CIO at Eurostar. “Box provides us with a smooth, unified, way of accessing content and a brilliant collaboration platform for our disparate workforce. Box has helped us to transform the way we access information and fundamentally change the way we work across projects.”

“Eurostar’s deployment underscores the increased adoption we’ve seen in Europe, as companies of all sizes move towards a more mobile and collaborative workforce,” said David Quantrell, Box senior vice president and general manager of EMEA. “Box helps enable secure content sharing, collaboration and mobility with robust admin controls to securely run an essential service connecting the UK with the rest of the Continent. Eurostar is a leading example in the transportation industry of companies moving to cloud technologies.”

Similar to Box’s values, Eurostar places a strong emphasis on creating environments that foster productivity through secure, user-friendly tools.  Having just celebrated its 20th anniversary, Eurostar continues to prioritize providing employees with the platform they need to be efficient and effective using the best technology available.

Box makes it easy for more than 32 million individuals at 275,000 businesses around the world to share and collaborate. With today’s announcement, Eurostar joins a growing list of transportation companies who have moved to Box, including Network Rail, Gatwick Airport, Hamburg Airport as well as global enterprises, including General Electric, Anglo American, and Schneider Electric.
