Box.net announced two new features that affect how its users view and share content on the Box platform. The first feature is an integrated content viewer that provides full-viewing capabilities online for a range of files inside the Box environment. The second feature, to be released over the next few weeks, aims to make it easy for users to share and embed all types of files anywhere on the web. These new capabilities are a result of Box.net’s recent acquisition of Increo Solutions and represent a step towards transitioning more users from a desktop environment and into Cloud-based content management. The integrated content viewer and embedding features support popular file formats, including Word documents, Excel spreadsheets, PowerPoint presentations, PDFs, images, Adobe Photoshop and Illustrator files, audio and video. The ability to view and share content regardless of desktop software is geared towards a mobile and web-based workforce. Cloud Content Management facilitates sharing that is also trackable, giving IT departments visibility into how content moves within an organization and beyond. The Box platform also features workflow management, organic content discovery, trackable sharing, and can connect to other cloud solutions – such as Salesforce.com and Google Apps – through its OpenBox platform. http://www.box.net/
