Connect by Quickoffice Fuels New Productivity Era With Unique Mobile Service That Integrates Best of Office and CloudNew Service Is Now Available in Popular App Stores and Compatible With iPhone, iPad, Android, and Mac and Windows PCs (April 16, 2012)
DALLAS, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 04/16/12 -- Quickoffice, Inc., the global leader in mobile office productivity solutions, today announced the availability of Connect by Quickoffice, a new service that integrates the company's market-leading mobile Office editors with a proprietary cloud platform. Connect is an all-in-one solution that enables users to work seamlessly across multiple devices and clouds, both online and offline, without requiring a user to switch among applications.
Unlike other cloud solutions that offer only the viewing of content, Connect allows users to create, edit, share and collaborate on their files, regardless of device or platform. By maintaining a single interface across all devices, in addition to integrated connections into the most popular cloud services, users have an easy way to access any file and then continue their work throughout the document lifecycle.
Control of Files, Regardless of Device or Location
Connect provides users with a fluid online and offline experience for creating, editing, syncing and sharing documents, spreadsheets and presentations. The service also enables remote access into any device and aggregated search across all cloud services and connected devices, regardless of operating system.
Connect includes a native mobile application for iPad, iPhone, Android tablet and smartphone, a desktop client for PC and Mac, as well as a web portal, for comprehensive file and account management. Instead of having to copy files over to a different folder, Connect allows users to keep using their existing file structure and automatically syncs files to ensure the latest version is always available on any device.
Mobile Cloud Ecosystem, New Way of Working
Connect currently offers seamless integration with a dozen separate cloud services, allowing users to avoid the fragmentation resulting from working with different applications that each only support a single cloud service. Since consumers are increasingly working with multiple cloud services, Connect provides a distinct benefit through a single integrated solution to access all their digital content. Cloud service partners include Basecamp, Box, Catch, Dropbox, Egnyte, Evernote, Google Docs, Huddle, Microsoft SkyDrive, Springpad, SugarSync and WebDev.
Further, Connect provides remote access to all connected desktops and mobile devices, allowing users anytime access to their files, even those they have not previously selected to sync. The new service also enables collaboration and the ability to share folders, as well as comment on files or folders. Files can be shared with connected social networks, including Docstoc, Facebook, LinkedIn, Slideshare, Scribd, and Twitter.
"In the post-PC era, more consumers find themselves working on a laptop, smartphone and tablet throughout the course of their day, in addition to collaborating and connecting via clouds and social networks," said Alan Masarek, CEO at Quickoffice. "Connect lets people follow their natural workflow while mobile, across all their devices, capitalizing on Quickoffice's years of mobile productivity development experience."
