Sosius Unveils Next Generation Web Collaboration at Office 2.0 Conference
Collaboration Veterans from Intranets.com and Collaborative Workspaces Launch New Venture; Offer a Better Way to Manage All Spheres of Life
SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sosius, (http://www.sosius.com), a new, free online collaboration and business social networking service, today unveiled its beta version at the Office 2.0 conference in San Francisco. With Sosius, SMEs (small- to medium-size enterprises) and business professionals receive a powerful new way to converge all the spheres of work and personal life without the need for multiple or complicated combinations of services and providers.
“In working with large enterprises through our previous ventures, we quickly realized that the same needs for managing structured processes and social interactions apply to small businesses and individual professionals and thus, Sosius was born.”
Andrew Cameron-Webb, founder and chief technology officer, will present an overview of Sosius today at the conference.
“Sosius brings new order to life for the Web 2.0 generation, filling an obvious unmet market need for work and life collaboration and social networking in one central location,” said Steve Crummey, Chairman of Sosius. “In working with large enterprises through our previous ventures, we quickly realized that the same needs for managing structured processes and social interactions apply to small businesses and individual professionals and thus, Sosius was born.”
Sosius is the essence of Office 2.0: bringing one’s entire work life to the web in one central location. While other popular online collaboration companies have offered structure and tools for work life, none have captured “Life 2.0” in the same vein - merging the spheres of both work and personal life via a free collaboration tool. In Sosius, users create different workspaces, inviting other users to join and collaborate via powerful document management, database and project management tools. For the owner, everything comes together in one view: what’s new in each workspace, one consolidated calendar, news and information from custom RSS feeds, text and voice chat, and more - all via a free account with 1.0Gb of space.
With Sosius, users can easily track and collaborate for both:
Work – create Career Workspaces to:
…and Life - shift to your Family Workspace to:
“We are inviting the public to join our beta and help make Sosius the most powerful collaboration tool available for the intersection of work and life,” said Andrew Cameron-Webb, founder and CTO. “We will allow users to present product feature requests, submit suggestions and drive the overall direction of how Sosius will best meet users’ needs. In the spirit of Web 2.0, social networking and community, Sosius will truly be a user-built solution for the best in online productivity & collaboration.”
