HyperOffice Launches an Online Workplace for Small and Growing Businesses
Intranet Solution Provides Powerful Collaboration, Communication, and Information
VIENNA, VA., August 10, 2004 - HyperOffice announced today the availability of its online intranet software
that promises to make life a little easier for small businesses.
HyperOffice offers a user-friendly and affordable suite of intranet
applications that gives small businesses essential tools to
collaborate, communicate, and manage information from any Internet
connection. HyperOffice provides a secure and reliable online workplace
for employees and partners without any upfront IT investment or
anxieties over data loss and system down time.
'We were in search of an online workplace for 3,000
distributed professionals to access and share realtime, critical
information in an 'interconnected office' environment. Growing at a
rate of five new franchises a month limited our options to finding a
scalable, easy to deploy, pay as you grow solution,' said Craig Grey,
Founder of The General Office. 'HyperOffice had our customized online workplace
up and running quickly and best of all we did not have to incur any
upfront expenses for servers, hardware, software or IT consultants.'
To date, choices for small business included large upfront and
ongoing IT investment in servers, software and staff or cobbling
together solutions for collaboration, communication, data backup, spam
and virus protection.
'HyperOffice is easy to use and delivers to SMBs (small and
mid-sized businesses) the rich functionality of a much more expensive
solution at an affordable price,' said Helen Chan, senior SMB analyst
at the Yankee Group. 'Small businesses now have the option of adopting
a powerful collaborative solution without needing to pay an expensive
upfront licensing fee or manage the application.'
HyperOffice provides small and growing businesses with web-based business email
shared online calendaring, project management, shared online document
storage and other collaborative features for a low monthly fee (as low
as $3.80 per user). Users log on to the system through any Internet
browser and access a customizable desktop with email, documents,
calendars, contacts, projects, opinion polls, announcements, notes and
reminders. These tools can be used for individual purposes or can be
shared with designated group members for easy, real-time collaboration.
'We were using Microsoft Exchange and SharePoint
for our communication and collaboration needs within our company of 150
and found that we needed a full-time IT person to manage it. Along with
the upfront investment costs for equipment, software, IT personnel and
ongoing maintenance, it was becoming too expensive for us,' said Romero
Van Bochove, President, CEO, Orizon. 'As a professional system
integration firm focused on the government market, we have a workforce
that is mobile and often at client sites - HyperOffice gave us what we
needed at a fraction of the cost and the aggravation.'
Small businesses no longer need to use email to send reworked documents back and forth to team members, use the fax to share calendars
or lose sleep over hard disk crashes and lost data. They now have
access to the same productivity enhancing technologies as their bigger
competitors. HyperOffice provides small businesses with a valuable,
easy-to-use technology to streamline business processes and reduce
'As a lifelong small business owner, my partner and I saw the
power in tools like Lotus Notes and Microsoft
Outlook/SharePoint/Exchange,' said Farzin Arsanjani, president,
HyperOffice. 'But we know first-hand how expensive and time consuming
these products are. Small businesses can't possibly make that kind of
commitment. We founded HyperOffice to give small business owners a
chance to compete.'
HyperOffice comes standard with 100 megabytes (MB) of storage
and additional storage can be
purchased in increments of 100 MB for $2 per month. New customers can
try the product free for 30 days and without any obligation.
HyperOffice, a leading provider of on-demand software offers a
simple and affordable suite of intranet applications providing new and
growing businesses essential tools to collaborate, communicate, and
manage information from any browser running on any platform.

with communication & collaboration solutions

users. HyperOffice has received broad market recognition and is used
