Delivering powerful intranet to the growing Mac user base
VIENNA, VA (PRWEB) February 1, 2005 – Mac users can now enjoy the full functionality of the HyperOffice intranet software. Compatibility with the Safari browser enables Mac users to communicate and collaborate affordably. The HyperOffice hosted solution offers Mac and PC users business-class email, shared calendars, a robust document management system, shared project management, shared contacts and other collaborative features via an online Intranet.
According to a recent eWeek article ‘Apple today does not offer a real Outlook competitor, but it easily could. Of course, to be really useful, such a product either needs to talk to Microsoft Exchange servers, or Apple needs to offer an Exchange-like server capable of supporting Outlook clients on Windows machines.’
Positioned as an alternative to Microsoft Exchange, Sharepoint, and Outlook, HyperOffice offers Mac users in a mixed environment (PCs and Macs) the ability to seamlessly go from one platform to the other – without missing a beat.
HyperOffice customers use their service as a low-cost, no maintenance Microsoft Exchange Alternative. Many customers move exclusively to the HyperOffice platform, but many choose to use both platforms (MS Exchange and HyperOffice) to fit their requirements. HyperOffice provides the ability to synchronize Outlook calendars, contacts, and tasks without expensive servers. Small businesses have access to the same technology that until now was only available for large enterprises – cutting-edge collaboration tools, online backup and file storage, and spam and virus-free email-no servers or software required. Access email anywhere with Web-based email with 24/7 virus protection and spam control; synchronize Outlook calendars, tasks, and contacts.
‘Offering a seamless collaboration and communication environment for our 300 plus workforce regardless of whether they are on a Mac or a PC has always been a challenge. In the past we have had to make difficult decisions compromising productivity by either forcing everyone to one platform or by complicating the collaborative process. With HyperOffice we now have a cross-browser and multi-platform solution. Our employees and contractors do not have to choose between productivity and their preferred platform any longer.’ Said Fred Aryan, President, Lasership Inc.
