Rockville, Md. (PRESS RELEASE – May 23, 2010) — HyperOffice today made the new version of its award-winning, cloud-computing messaging and collaboration suite widely available to small and medium-sized businesses.
This ends a successful beta program that spanned six months, thousands of users, and continuous enhancements – including innovations guided by a customer-driven Product Development Committee that refined the user-interface as HyperOffice reinvented the entire suite.
The software-as-a-services suite makes it easy for company owners, employees, customers, and partners to run and grow a business by working together, planning projects, sharing documents, scheduling meetings, and more.
Beta testers applauded the upgrade:
“We collaborated with sticks and clubs before HyperOffice. Now we maintain a shared calendar for major tenant and building activities – evictions, move-ins, unit turns. It replaces Microsoft Outlook. It centralizes and secures data online, and there are multiple methods of remote access,” said Anthony Girard, owner and broker at Arlington Properties, a multi-family property management company with 200 units and five employees in Colorado.
“We use shared contacts, shared documents, and wiki. We’re planning to move our business email, calendaring and tasks from Intermedia. We will be using HyperSynch with our Blackberries after we move our email, calendaring, and tasks. SharePoint didn’t work for us. Google Apps didn’t work for us. The biggest issue was we could not drag documents into a shared drive. We need to share information quickly,” said Craig Asher, principal of Vital Financial LLC, which operates offices in several US states, with five principals investing in and improving the operations of small to medium-sized B2B software companies.
“It’s the online calendar that got us sold on HyperOffice to begin with. We are now starting to share documents online. We are also bringing in some customers, to also share documents. I was searching for a shared calendar package that did not require us to have a dedicated server. And, instead of keeping forms in a mishmash of flash drives, they are now organized in HyperDrive [online file storage for HyperOffice], where any of us can access them,” said William Babers, director of marketing and a testing technician at Powerline Testing LLC in New Mexico, which tests and inspects trucks used in the maintenance and construction of power lines.
“I was looking for a solution for sharing work digitally without servers and all other extra costs. We have one office, but our team works from five different locations, and with partners. Teams work a lot from home or en route. Everyone uses HyperOffice, and the new version is more user friendly,” said Joost Kester Jacobs, owner of LETO concepts B.V., a business consultancy in the Netherlands.
“We have 30 employees and affiliates located in Abu Dhabi, Manama, Dammam, Milan, London and Istanbul. We access HyperOffice from everywhere,” said Mohamed Almandeel, managing partner of Mandeel Associates for Management Consultancy LLC, a business development advisory.
“This new version delivers more value at no change in cost. Tabs open multiple email messages – unlike other business email tools. It integrates calendars, contacts and documents. We drag-and-drop to easily build project and customer portals in minutes. There are color-coded calendars, and project management tools. These seem like little things, but they add up to advances in the new HyperOffice,” said Amy Harrick, publisher and editor-in-chief of Ceremony Magazine, which produces annual wedding publications in Southern California.
