Box, Inc., a provider of Content Cloud solutions, and Google (News - Alert) Cloud have announced an expanded partnership that will harness the power of generative artificial intelligence (AI) to provide users with more efficient ways to process and analyze data stored within the Box Content Cloud.

As per the partnership, Box with Vertex (News - Alert) AI is now readily available for customers through the Google Cloud Marketplace. This makes it easier than ever to access and integrate the solutions and will empower organizations to make data-driven decisions faster and with greater precision.

Businesses can now process and analyze their data at an accelerated pace, yielding more personalized user experiences and enabling intelligent search functionalities. It also creates entirely new ways of interacting with content and has the potential to reshape the way organizations operate.

Aaron Levie, co-founder and CEO of Box (News - Alert) emphasized the significance of this partnership, saying, "Enterprises today want to work with strategic technology platforms that can help them work smarter and more productively."

The collaboration is an expansion of an earlier announcement to integrate Google Cloud’s advanced large-language models (LLMs) into Box AI and will now use the Vertex AI for its metadata extraction feature to cut time inputting and maintaining data by automatically identifying and tagging key context from their documents, including matching metadata fields to attributes within a file. This integration will enable customers to automatically classify and label documents at scale, define custom metadata templates, automate workflows with ERP and CRM systems, maintain compliance protocols, and extract metadata in multiple languages, ensuring consistent term recognition across various regions and use cases.

“Google Cloud is an incredibly important partner that helps us serve our customers globally. This deepened partnership underscores our joint commitment to delivering solutions that leverage cutting edge technology to power entirely new ways for users to intelligently interact with their content and revolutionize the way businesses operate in the AI-first era,” said Levie.

“Generative AI can streamline some of the most time-consuming processes facing enterprises today, such as manual data entry and analysis,” said Thomas Kurian, CEO of Google Cloud. “Our expanded partnership with Box will provide customers with new tools that help them quickly process and create insights from documents stored within Box Content Cloud, saving time that users can reallocate towards more impactful work.”
