HyperOffice released a beta version of cloud computing software that reinvents the company's award-winning collaboration and communication tools for small and medium-sized manufacturers and other businesses. The private beta is available immediately to qualified customers and prospects. A video demo is available.

The software-with-services tool 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 businessapplications over the Internet — shared calendars and contacts;business-class email, document and project management; webconferencing, databases and web forms; forums, polls and wikis; projectand task portals; Intranets and Extranets; user rights, versioning,commenting, backup, and other functions.

The suite:
• Givesnew entrepreneurs the software tools and support services they need toquickly launch new ventures from any web-connected computer or mobiledevice, including the Apple iPhone;
• Gives smaller and mid-sizedcompanies the power to compete and expand, without the hassles ofbuying, installing, upgrading and fixing hardware and software;
• Speeds 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 connectmobile workers and distributed teams with colleagues, business partnersand contractors - from work, from home, while traveling, anytime, usingany Internet connection.

HyperOffice said the beta includes 10 yearsof expertise and experience working with small and medium-sizedbusinesses with 5 to 250 employees and two years of research anddevelopment. Customers sought "simplicity, speed, security and powerfrom a cloud-based platform, geared for smart business, that weavesWeb-based applications into an integrated suite," said Arsanjani. "Theywanted to get back to work. They didn't want to bet their future onsome mix-and-match combination of desktop software that is never up todate, that they have to keep fixing.

"Google Apps has reached morethan two million businesses that recognize the value of messaging andcollaboration capabilities delivered through software as a service,"said Arsanjani. "HyperOffice is distinctively positioned as SMBsdiscover hosted business collaboration services and realize theyrequire a more comprehensive suite of tools — along with free supportand training to get off the ground.

"Increasingly distributedteams are bombarded with new Web 2.0 tools that do one job well - forinstance, 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 vendorrelationships. They lose productivity from double entry with disparatetools. In contrast, with HyperOffice, SMBs get all their collaborationand messaging needs - with one integrated suite of tools that makescollaboration simple."

The online HyperOffice suite delivers tosmaller and medium-sized businesses the power and productivity ofcostly corporate collaboration products for a monthly subscription fee.

The new version introduces a streamlined, intuitive interfacethat is instantly familiar to any user of what now becomes the"classic" edition of HyperOffice - yet far more flexible. The newAjax-powered HyperOffice enables users to drag and drop to easily buildcustomer and project portals in minutes, make use of color-codedcalendars, and manage project teams with more robust project managementcapabilities.

Tabs enable users to open multiple emailmessages. Settings and permissions can show changes made by others,identify which data collected by a web form is private or shared, andwhich users are granted access to groups, documents, revisions andother corporate resources. Users may also subscribe to revision changesthat team members make to a document.

For users ready to migrateonline from Microsoft Outlook, SharePoint, Exchange and otherconventional, expensive desktop and server email products, HyperOfficeprovides free support by email and phone, webinars and an array offree, online and custom training options.
