Box Relay

Workflow made simple

Relay UI

A smart way to stay on task

Most workflow tools are notoriously difficult to use — until now. Box Relay, developed by IBM and Box, makes it simple for everyone in your business to build, track and manage their everyday workflows. Now you can drive productivity and standardize processes across your entire organization, all with the benefits of Box.

Build workflow ui

Build workflows

Using an easy-to-follow guide, anyone can design a workflow template. Just add steps, actions, due dates and users to automate your work. Or go even faster by leveraging existing workflow templates from your company's repository.

Get tasks done

Get tasks done

With a simple notification system, any task you've been assigned — or are overdue on — will trigger an alert directly to your inbox. Even people outside of your own business can be assigned work, so partners, vendors, customers or anyone in your extended enterprise can all work seamlessly together. And completing tasks is as simple as using Box, so there's no complicated training to get everyone on the same page.

Track process

Track progress

Eliminate "checking in" emails and keep all of your project's communications in one place. Get notifications when workflows are complete, or when projects stall in any given step. And, most importantly, always know who's taking what action so projects get done on time and compliance requirements are met.
