HyperOffice today launched the public beta of business collaboration tools, available online, that connect the iPhone to corporate email, contacts, calendars, tasks and notes.

HyperOffice tools are an alternative to Microsoft Exchange, which is not yet supported by the iPhone.

HyperOffice synchronizes the iPhone email client with Microsoft Outlook, giving business users wireless access to secure corporate messaging and collaboration services from work, from home, and while traveling.

HyperOffice features 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, portal customization, customer portals, extranets and intranets, time and expense tracking, and more.

If you are interested in these tools, you can start the trial here. Public beta also includes a 30-day free trial of HyperOffice.
