Cotap Partners With Box on File Integrations

Integrations With Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive Offer Fast and Easy Mobile File Sharing and Collaboration for Employees

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - August 27, 2014) -  Cotap, an enterprise mobile messaging service, today announced integrations with the four major cloud file-sharing and content collaboration services: Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and Microsoft OneDrive. These new file integrations were built using Box's recently launched Box View, which is optimized for fast, high-quality rendering of documents on mobile.

"Mobile is a much bigger shift than most people realize when it comes to the way we work. Having immediate access to the people, information and files you need, frees you up to work in the moment, wherever you happen to be," said Jim Patterson, founder and CEO, Cotap. "This is why we built integrations with the top cloud document storage services our users already love and rely on to get work done. Box was the perfect partner to make this happen because their Box View API is truly built with the mobile experience in mind."

Key features of the integrations include:

  • Connect one or more document storage services to a Cotap account at the same time, setup takes just minutes
  • Quickly send a file to one or many people with just a few taps, similar to sharing a photo in most messaging apps
  • Recently modified files will show up first, so relevant documents are always the most accessible

By leveraging Box View, people can share and view relevant files no matter which service they use, all within Cotap. Box View provides a beautiful, unified viewing experience across desktop and mobile devices by taking documents and converting them to HTML so they can be displayed in high fidelity on any platform. Box View conversion technology is built for speed, allowing users to view business content on their mobile device without needing to download the entire file.

"Using Cotap helped keep our team aligned and moving fast during the opening of the newest Philz Coffee in Santa Monica. Since then, Cotap has become an integral part in communicating across our management, retail, and warehouse teams. We use Box to share files, schedules, projects, and much more. Now that we can send, access and view these files in Cotap, it makes getting work done in the moment easier than ever," said Young Han, Head of Community, Philz Coffee.

"Box's thriving ecosystem of third-party developers have built incredibly powerful integrations onto our content platform that enable businesses of sizes and across industries to be more productive, collaborative and competitive," said Chris Yeh, senior vice president of Product and Platform at Box. "We're excited to see Box View and Cotap deliver an elegant and seamless content viewing experience across all platforms, devices and services."

Availability
All file integrations are available immediately on iOS and Android. To connect a file service, access the Settings tab in the Cotap mobile app and tap Connect.
