HyperOffice was founded as a hosted groupware specialist during the dot-com bubble era. At that point, ubiquitous broadband and web-hosted business applications were the stuff of dreams for an IT support team. When the dot-com bubble burst, HyperOffice put its hosted software model on hold while the rest of the industry evolved enough to see the value of its vision. Then, in 2004, it became a pioneering provider of B2B-focused online collaboration and communication software. Now that dial-up internet access and cloud-computing skepticism have faded from collective memory, HyperOffice’s forward-thinking value proposition seems even more impressive. In those early days, business computing was almost always on-premises, and enterprise applications and data were hosted on a company’s servers.
