JACKSONVILLE, Fla. and ROCKVILLE, Md., Sept. 18, 2007 – Winn-Dixie Stores Inc. (NASDAQ: WINN) has announced its decision to make the online calendar tool HyperOffice available to the more than 52,000 Associates who operate the grocer’s 520 stores, three manufacturing plants, six distribution centers and its corporate headquarters.
“HyperOffice enables us to increase our productivity by streamlining the process we use to schedule meetings and better enabling us to avoid conflicts,” said Pete Martinez, department training specialist at Winn-Dixie.
The grocery giant is one of a growing number of Fortune 500 companies adopting HyperOffice, the award-winning webware that makes it easier for owners, employees, clients, partners and suppliers of growing businesses to collaborate, communicate, plan projects, edit and share documents, schedule meetings, and manage information anytime and from any Internet connection.
The suite of Web-based applications does not need to be installed by an IT department. Instead, HyperOffice operates as a service from host computers and delivers to growing organizations today the power and productivity of group collaboration software — business-class email without spam and viruses; document management with online storage, versioning, user rights and workflow; contact management, scheduling, task management, discussion groups, security, backup, and more – at a fraction of the cost.
HyperOffice includes HyperShare for Outlook. Built into HyperOffice at no added cost, HyperShare extends the power of Outlook and operates as both a complement to and an alternative to Microsoft Exchange.
“Growing businesses need to scale operations and HyperOffice lets them do that effectively,” said Farzin Arsanjani, president of HyperOffice. “HyperOffice adds to business capabilities without affecting operational agility, improves responsiveness irrespective of location and time constraints, and offers a tremendous competitive advantage.”
“HyperOffice is now rolling out throughout our entire operating area,” said Martinez. “We are spending less time organizing meetings, which gives us more time to continue getting better at serving our customers.”
“The ease of use, affordability, accessibility and features like calendar overlays, notifications, previewing availability, interlinking and public online calendars are critical to HyperOffice’s success,” said Martinez.
