Box has acquired Crocodoc, a HTML5 document rendering and viewing solution. The seven-member Crocodoc team will join Box, with Crocodoc co-founder and CEO Ryan Damico serving as Box’s director of Platform.

Crocodoc’s technology will be deeply integrated into the Box experience, says the company. Crocodoc will also become a core standalone platform offering.

Aaron Levie (Co-founder and CEO, Box): Content sits at the center of every business, and nearly every business application.

Founded in 2007, Crocodoc has served hundreds of millions of document previews in the last two years alone. The service powers HTML5 document conversion and viewing for applications across industries, including Dropbox, Yammer, Facebook, LinkedIn, Edmodo and Blackboard, all of which will continue to be supported.
