Box has announced that they will soon discontinue the Crocodoc service that they acquired 3 years ago.

We will end-of-life (EOL) Crocodoc and the legacy Box View API services on January 15, 2018.

The license is a flat fee per server (self-hosted) and allows companies to plugin directly into their document storage or databases.
