Verizon Communications Inc. has partnered with HyperOffice, a Rockville, MD-based leading global vendor of cloud-based collaboration and communication services, to distribute and promote its innovative Share.to communications application using Verizon Cloud infrastructure.
Share.to suite is a solution that allows users to conference, share ideas and chat using any collaboration system in their individual workspaces.
Verizon will help Improve Scalability..
The suite enhances other HyperOffice’s collaboration, content and communication software product offerings. Pankaj Taneja, HyperOffice’s Marketing Director, says the software can be used together with HyperOffice Social suite.
Put concisely, Share.to doesn’t replace other existing tools, but instead, it augments them.
Extended teams that use Share.to, which easily integrates with file storage apps such as Google Apps, Dropbox, Office 365 and Box, can easily pick up an image, document or file into the conversation within seconds.
Verizon Cloud allows users to access or make changes to their content using various devices via its sync and back up feature.
By partnering with Verizon Communications Inc. , HyperOffice will provide extended teams with the capacity to visually partake in work flow via several communication modes, notwithstanding their preferred channel.
It is also part of an emerging digital trend.
“Over the past few years we have witnessed a distinct shift in how work gets done. How work gets done is quickly shifting from internally focused teams, where employees of the same organization use the same collaboration platform, to extended teams composed of employees, freelancers, customers and other stakeholders, all using different collaboration tools that need to work together,” notes Taneja, in a Press release.
Current Offerings are Mostly Scattered..
Currently, extended teams rely on tools such as ad hoc conferencing, email and a mishmash of various third-party software, making them harder to use. Compliance is also an issue.
However, Share.to offers features such as video and audio conferencing, chat plus data sharing features regardless of the source, even if it is a secure workspace.
Members of the extended teams can be included or removed from the workspaces depending on the task needs.
Founded by Shervin Pishevar and Drew Morris in 1999 with the backing of venture capital firm Strategic Technology Investors, HyperOffice has grown in leaps and bounds and now seeks to expand its global reach.
The company; which was one of the first to develop groupware along with When.com (purchased by AOL) and Jump.com (Later acquired by Microsoft), is in talks with potential partners in order to spread its global user base.
The Verizon deal, in the words of Taneja, will help create synergy with its HyperOffice’s cloud-reliant communication suites and Verizon’s delivery capabilities. Additionally, the Verizon Cloud infrastructure has top-of-range security and performance capacity, which makes it the best platform to deliver Share.to to its clients.
This makes it the best cloud provider out there that can help rapidly grow Share.to.
