Use the Box API for Scalable, Automated Store Processes



Get Training

In the retail environment, automating the repeatable processes around products can deliver significant value.  Use the Box API to create automated processes for your own business. For example, automate the folder structure by using Box’s API calls to create a folder and automatically assign it to a managed user. This reduces admin overhead on folder creation and saves time when you need to create hundreds of folders for each store.

Build on existing applications like Box for iPad. Several retail customers use the Box API to completely brand the iPad app with their company logos and colors.  Many Box mobile partners, like Taptera, already have custom branding options available on their customized Box for iPad application.
