HyperOffice reinvents award-winning business collaboration suite
Small businesses use cloud-computing apps and services to run and grow
“There’s no hardware to buy, no software to install. No geeks required.”

ROCKVILLE, MD., 15 Dec. 2009 – HyperOffice today released a beta version of
cloud-computing software that reinvents the company’s award-winning
collaboration and communication tools for small and medium-sized businesses.

The private beta is available immediately to qualified customers and
prospects upon request.

The software-with-services suite makes it easy for company owners,
employees, customers, partners and suppliers to run and grow a business by
working together, planning projects, sharing documents, scheduling meetings,
and more.

“We can get you up and running in as little as an hour,” said Farzin
Arsanjani, president of HyperOffice. “There’s no hardware to buy, no
software to install. No geeks required.”

HyperOffice integrates a range of software-as-a-service business
applications over the Internet — shared calendars and contacts,
business-class email, document and project management, web conferencing,
databases and web forms; forums, polls and wikis; project and task portals,
Intranets and Extranets; user rights, versioning, commenting, backup, and
more.

The suite:

– Gives newly-minted entrepreneurs the software tools and support services
they need to quickly launch new ventures from any web-connected computer or
mobile device, including the Apple iPhone;
– Gives smaller and mid-sized companies the power to compete and expand —
without the hassles of buying, installing, upgrading and fixing hardware and
software;
– Speeds up time to market for agile business units – even if corporate IT
resources are limited or non-existent;
– Cuts across boundaries of time, place and organization to connect mobile
workers and distributed teams with colleagues, business partners and
contractors – from work, from home, while traveling, anytime, using any
Internet connection.

HyperOffice brings to the new edition of its namesake web-based software
nearly 10 years of expertise and experience working with small and
medium-sized businesses with 5 to 250 employees – and delivers the beta
after two years of research and development with customers worldwide.

“Our customers demanded simplicity, speed, security and power from a
cloud-based platform, geared for smart business, that weaves Web-based
applications into an integrated suite,” said Arsanjani. “They wanted to get
back to work. They didn’t want to bet their future on some mix-and-match
combination of desktop software that is never up to date, that they have to
keep fixing.

“Google Apps has reached more than two million businesses that recognize the
value of messaging and collaboration capabilities delivered through
Software-as-a-Service,” said Arsanjani. “HyperOffice is distinctively
positioned as SMBs discover hosted business collaboration services and
realize they require a more comprehensive suite of tools — along with free
support and training to get off the ground.

“Increasingly distributed teams are bombarded with new Web 2.0 tools that do
one job well – for instance, just sharing calendars or documents, or web
conferencing, project management, chatting, or tracking sales calls. But
these are “point” products that leave SMBs struggling to manage multiple
vendor relationships. They lose productivity from double entry with
disparate tools. In contrast, with HyperOffice, SMBs get all their
collaboration and messaging needs – with one integrated suite of tools that
makes collaboration simple.”

Hosted online, the HyperOffice suite delivers to smaller and medium-sized
businesses the power and productivity of costly corporate collaboration
products – for a low monthly subscription fee of about $7 per month, per
user, secure, and hassle free.

Under the hood, rebuilt from the ground up, Ajax and an array of Web 2.0
technologies power improvements in performance, scalability and security.

Where the business user meets the screen, the new version introduces a
streamlined, intuitive interface that is instantly familiar to any user of
what now becomes the “classic” edition of HyperOffice – yet far more
flexible.

For example, the new Ajax-powered HyperOffice enables users to drag and drop
to easily build customer and project portals in minutes, make use of
color-coded calendars, and manage project teams with more robust project
management capabilities.

Tabs enable users to open multiple email messages – a unique advance in
productivity that is generally not built into other email tools. Settings
and permissions may be used to determine which users see changes made by
others, which data collected by a web form is private or shared, and which
users are granted access to groups, documents, revisions and other corporate
resources. Users may also subscribe to revision changes that team members
make to a document.

For users ready to migrate online from Microsoft Outlook, SharePoint,
Exchange and other conventional, expensive desktop and server email
products, HyperOffice provides free support by email and phone, webinars and
an array of free, online and custom training options.
