BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--harmon.ie, provider of the first user experience tools built to deliver information the way the human brain works, today announced it has been named a finalist in the 2017 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards for harmon.ie with Collage™. The company was honored among a global field of top Microsoft partners for demonstrating excellence in innovation and implementation of customer solutions based on Microsoft technology.
The recognition comes as harmon.ie reaches a milestone in its efforts to humanize Office 365 and SharePoint by bringing them directly to Outlook. harmon.ie has now helped customers replace more than 60 million attachments with links, enabling users to find, view, manage and share documents from SharePoint and Office 365 directly in Outlook, without having to search for and download them first. This milestone dovetails perfectly with today’s Microsoft recognition, since they both spotlight harmon.ie’s proven ability to humanize the SharePoint and Office 365 experience.
“While the use of technology and apps have increased, we’ve seen worker productivity stagnate. Employees are continuously distracted, overloaded with information from disparate sources. This is because, in the human brain, information is naturally organized by topic, not by application,” said Yaacov Cohen, CEO of harmon.ie. “With harmon.ie Collage, we’re solving this disconnect by unifying disparate information from multiple cloud services, including Office 365, within Outlook, assembled by topic. We’re honored to be recognized by Microsoft for our unique approach to humanizing technology.”
harmon.ie Collage eliminates app noise and removes the need for workers to open multiple, process-specific applications and email chains by automatically organizing them by topic within Outlook. The advanced, topic-driven sidebar allows workers to see the big picture while staying focused on the topic at hand—be it a specific product, customer, project, campaign or service. With topic computing, harmon.ie aims to give workers the focus they need to get the job done right, and fast.
“The outstanding innovation and expertise the Microsoft partner community continues to provide is demonstrated by this year’s award winners,” said Ron Huddleston corporate vice president, One Commercial Partner, Microsoft Corp. “We applaud harmon.ie on achieving finalist of the 2017 Microsoft Collaboration and Content Partner of the Year award.”
The 2017 Microsoft Partner of the Year Awards were presented in several categories, with winners chosen from a set of more than 2,800 entrants from 115 countries worldwide. harmon.ie was recognized for providing outstanding solutions and services in the Collaboration and Content category.
