Users can literally work with anyone, on any device, using a solution that scales from small office up to the enterprise
Seamless Integration Provides Secure and Scalable File Sharing to Small, Medium and Enterprise Organizations
LONDON - October 19, 2011— Egnyte, a leading provider of HybridCloud file server solutions and Quickoffice the global leader in mobile office productivity solutions, today announced the integration of Quickoffice Pro HD and Egnyte HybridCloud File Sharing for iPad users, allowing them to create, collaborate and edit quickly and easily from anywhere, anytime. With the integration, users can now instantly share folders, documents and files safely and securely, from within the Quickoffice Pro HD product. Egnyte’s unique HybridCloud approach delivers the speed and security of local storage with the flexible accessibility of the cloud.
“Using Egnyte’s HybridCloud File Sharing has allowed us to boost the effectiveness of our employees,” said Chuck Andrews, Owner of Andrews Solutions. “We’re very excited about this newest integration with Quickoffice. It means we can increase our efficiency by creating and editing presentations, documents and a host of other files on an iPad. Meanwhile, having access to Egnyte, we know we can safely collaborate with all team members, no matter whether they are in the office or out in the field, or in their home.”
Focused on the iPad tablet, this integration is aimed directly at dramatically increasing productivity. As a platform, we already know that the iPad plays a key role in the life of many business users. A July 2011 study from Gartner confirms this with their finding that, “a large sales force that deployed iPads discovered that people were spending 20% more computing time total per day when they used a tablet, a smartphone and a laptop than if they were using a smartphone and laptop alone. Laptops were relegated to less-frequent (but longer) sessions, and users were reaching for tablets frequently throughout the day”
“We’re excited to see our partnership with Egnyte move forward with deeper product integration,” said Alan Masarek, CEO of Quickoffice. “We believe there is significant overlap in our users, and more importantly, the joint solution represents significant productivity gains for users across the board.”
Vineet Jain, CEO of Egnyte noted, “Quickoffice is the leading editing and creation tool for Microsoft Office files used by iPad owners, and this partnership extends that reach. Users can literally work with anyone, on any device, using a solution that scales from small office up to the enterprise.”
