In one corner, you’ve got Sharepoint, an extraordinary tool for building office collaboration systems. In the other, generic social media tools like FaceBook and Twitter. What if neither works for your firm?

There’s an option in the middle, “Sharepoint for the rest of us,” as the company calls it. Box.net provides a ready-made framework for collaborating online and sharing files in an office environment. The company recently added full-text search capabilities that support Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel, as well as PDFs, TXT, and CSV files.

In upcoming weeks, the company plans to add enhancements in areas like collaboration, full-text search, and workflow and project management.

The Business version costs $15/user/month, and there’s a free lite version.
