Integration is key in enterprise messaging
You've probably experienced the headache of sifting through your image gallery in search of a file to send to your colleagues via email or text. And you've probably switched between apps, hit the upload icon, or gave up and manually copied and pasted everything into your previously opened (but now closed) app window. Needless to say, sending files from your phone can be a hassle.
Unnecessary steps in mobile usage lead to frustration and lost time, which can be devastating when confronted with an issue that warrants your immediate attention. Most enterprise messaging apps do exactly what you would expect them to--message people. But the real test for a good messaging platform does not end with the sole objective of improving communication, it should also dynamically improve collaboration. The first step toward generating a cohesive workplace collaboration setting starts with a strong file-sharing feature.
That's where enterprise messaging integrations come into the picture. One of our many integrations is Box, the cloud based content-sharing and collaboration platform provides secure digital storage space for files, photos, and videos. With specialized app integrations such as Box, there is a direct path within Lua for users to access their Box files and send them instantly within any conversation. Teams can access, share, and discuss any type of file instantly within their Lua app, even if they are physically working in different locations.
Three benefits of using Box through your Lua app:
- Lua makes it easier to instantly share your files by giving you direct access to your Box accounts. Simply attach and send.
- You can mold your conversations around your shared files, encouraging feedback from your colleagues and entire departments.
- Using Box through Lua offers an added level of security with encrypted messaging.
With Box on your Lua app, you can attach any supported file format (images, pdfs, docs, etc.) straight to your message. But safe file-sharing isn't the only feature this integration offers: simplicity is incorporated into the app's user interface with available content previews from your conversation window.
This integration aligns with Lua's high standards of security by providing direct access to your Box files through Lua's encrypted file-sharing software, lessening the risk of malware, hacks, and trackers. For extra precaution, you can see who has viewed your attachments with ReadReports, Lua’s built-in accountability feature.
Box follows Citrix’s ShareFile as an extension of Lua’s commitment toward developing communication effectiveness within organizations. These integrations offer you the ease-of-use you've come to expect in enterprise messaging - and rightly so. Save your time and state of mind with a fully integrated communication platform. This feature is available for iOS and Android.
