Rockville (MD) – HyperOffice has announced it will give a free 90-day subscription to its business collaboration software of the same name to any company affected by the Southern California wildfires.

“The goal is to help companies get back up and running quickly, respond to customer inquiries, collaborate and communicate with employees, customers and other stake holders without interruption, without having to buy new servers, replace software, or rebuild business infrastructure destroyed in the disaster,” said HyperOffice president Farzin Arsanjani.

HyperOffice is a suite of collaboration-based business software programs including e-mail, document management, scheduling, contact/task management, and discussion groups. Additionally, it gives companies additional PC security, data backup utilities, and the ability to manage customer portals and intranets.

According to CNN, nearly one million people were displaced by the raging wildfires that have engulfed over 400,000 acres of land in the Southern California area. Preliminary estimates suggest total damages will be well in excess of $1 billion.

HyperOffice made the same offer to businesses affected by hurricane Katrina in 2005. The software suite normally carries a monthly fee of $7.
