Freshservice Launches Box Integration to Move More IT Departments to the Cloud

Integration allows IT administrators to share documents, empower self-service options, and makes migrating devices effortless.

San Francisco, California June 17, 2015

Freshservice, the online ITIL Service Desk from Freshdesk, has just launched an integration with Box to make it easy for IT administrators to access content from the cloud for technical support.

Since its launch in 2014, more than 2,000 organizations worldwide have entirely moved their IT operations to the cloud with Freshservice. In a bid to further empower businesses transitioning to the cloud, the Service Desk has just announced a tight integration with Box's secure collaboration platform, directed at IT Support teams.

The new integration enables IT admins and users to complete crucial tasks without ever having to leave their help desk. While employees can report incidents by attaching screenshots from Box, IT admins can support employees by bringing in guides and videos from Box during problem resolution or when rolling out changes. When sharing workarounds and changelogs, IT departments using Freshservice can quickly attach relevant patches and updates to solution articles right from Box. This eliminates the need to painstakingly distribute changes as large executables, and instead let users download patches seamlessly.

The Box integration goes one step further, allowing agents to associate files with configuration items. Freshservice aims to make migrations easier for IT admins, by allowing them to quickly move content from retiring devices without having to spend time physically transferring data. Larger businesses can reduce the time and budget spent in backing up old devices.

"We’re thrilled to announce our brand new integration with Box. The features will allow IT administrators to leverage the cloud while sharing help documentation during day-to-day and major IT changes." said Shihab Muhammed, Director, Product Management for Freshservice. "With today’s launch, we’re bringing businesses one step closer to transitioning to the cloud completely for their IT operations"
