LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--SkyDox, a leading provider of a cloud-enabled file sharing and collaboration platform for cross-functional and distributed teams, today debuts its solutions to the U.S. enterprise sector. The platform is the only collaboration solution that enables organizations to leverage their existing Enterprise Content Management (ECM) systems and productivity tools while delivering document-centric, next-generation collaboration and social business and Web 2.0 functionality to their existing business applications.
Unlike other collaboration solutions, SkyDox has been designed from the ground-up as an enterprise-grade solution with built-in security features, administration-rights and compatibility with virtually all ECM and productivity applications, including Microsoft Office, SharePoint, Adobe Acrobat, FileNet, Documentum and Lotus Notes. This enables users to continue to work with familiar tools while enjoying the benefits of cloud-based collaboration and ensuring that the organization is able to fulfill compliance mandates and internal security measures.
By applying the principle of bringing individuals to a document, SkyDox drives the efficiency of the collaboration process, eliminating the need to manage multiple versions of a document, dealing with duplicates and managing differing tracked changes – a common consequence of existing collaboration tools. This helps organizations reduce network and compute overhead by preventing multiple versions and copies of the document from being stored or sent over public or private networks. The platform provides full audit trail of document access, distribution, download and views, which is available throughout the document lifecycle from within or outside of the organizations firewall.
SkyDox’s feature-rich functionality goes beyond basic collaboration offered by existing tools, enabling users to search, store, deliver, manage and simultaneously co-author documents, in real-time, on a single, easy-to-use user interface. Collaborators are notified when files are uploaded or modified and when new comments and annotations are posted. In addition, live messaging, presence and online meeting and tagged commenting features deliver an integrated collaboration experience. In turn, cross-functional and distributed teams can share and collaborate on documents with company team members, customers, suppliers and business partners using any browser-enabled desktop, laptop or mobile device in a highly-secure, fully-encrypted, permission-based environment.
“We are living in a time where more and more companies are working with teams not just spread across departments, but offices--- region and globally, and this is especially true for the enterprise sector,” said Barrie Hadfield, SkyDox co-founder and CTO. “In fact, according to Forrester, 62 percent of the U.S. employees work from a location outside of the corporate firewall in an average work week. Companies can help these mobile workers and their distributed networks improve their productivity without having to abandon the business applications and productivity tools that users are familiar with and have invested so much money and time into.”
The SkyDox collaboration platform can be deployed as a public, private or hybrid cloud with data hosting options at enterprise grade, high availability data centers in Europe, Asia and North America.
