HyperOffice now delivers its online business collaboration tools in both English and Spanish.
Available in English for several years, the award-winning webware makes it easier for owners, employees, clients, partners and suppliers of growing businesses to collaborate, communicate, plan projects, share documents, schedule meetings and tasks, and manage information, anytime, from work, from home, while traveling.
“HyperOffice is ideally suited to the small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) in the U.S., Central America, South America and Spain,” said Philippe Kuperman, partner in MAPA Group, a consultancy and business development organization that specializes in international development.
“The Hispanic community in the U.S., immigrants to the U.S., and millions of Spanish-speaking Internet users and entrepreneurs around the world, need the powerful tools afforded by today’s technologies, but do not have an internal IT organization to administer and maintain such applications,” said Kuperman. “SMBs are also characterized by the fact that they are the fastest growing sector in the regions we are developing and share the need and desire to use online collaboration technologies that allow them to compete with larger organizations.”
Two beta testers of the Spanish version of HyperOffice prove Kuperman correct.
“The ability to use HyperOffice in Spanish opens a universe of new markets,” said Enrique Draier, partner, Internet Services SA, http://www.is.com.ar, which provides wireless and wideband Internet services and applications to customers in 40 cities in Argentina – and serves as an example of the channel partners that HyperOffice is recruiting to market the Spanish version of HyperOffice.
“Twenty-eight percent of our customers are small and medium-sized businesses,” said Draier. “With the Spanish version of HyperOffice, we can help these business customers grow – especially our mobile customers — by giving them access to business-class email, document version control, shared contacts and other online collaboration tools from any Internet connection.
“There is another issue where HyperOffice becomes very important. Crime is an issue in Latin America, especially for cell phones and notebook computers, so the idea that you have applications and documents residing not on your own computer, but in the Internet cloud, that protects against losing your documents and business,” said Draier.
“We started by unifying to one domain all the different email addresses from each nation in Central America,” said Claudia Castellan, Regional Assistant of MIS for PASMO, a local affiliate of Population Services International, http://www.psi.org.
PASMO is a non-profit organization that provides HIV-AIDS prevention and family planning-services from offices in the seven countries of Central America.
“One email domain for everybody makes it easier to find everyone instead of asking for email addresses that change from country to country,” said Castellan. “And now we share our large documents using HyperOffice instead of sending them by courier.”
