Google Docs Integration Added to Podio's Work PlatformPodio Users Can Now Easily Share Google Docs Anywhere a File Can Be Attached Within Podio (February 16, 2012)
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/16/12 -- Podio, the replacement for all your project management software and collaboration tools, today announced an integration with Google Docs to deliver faster, easier file and document sharing within Podio's Workspaces, Apps and Tasks.
Podio is a web-based work platform for collaboration and project management, where any user can easily build their own business apps to get their work done. Google Docs is used by many of Podio's users for concurrent, realtime editing of spreadsheets, slide presentations and text documents. Now Podio users will be able to instantly share the Google Docs they're working on from within Podio and incorporate them into their collaborative workflow.
"Much of the work done in Podio revolves around documents, but documents don't just live on your desktop anymore. Podio users are huge fans of Google Docs, and have long been requesting an integration like this," said Phil Chambers, Podio CTO. "Now, Google Docs can be seamlessly shared, in context, and connected to Podio apps, tasks, messages, workspaces and ongoing conversations."
Attaching Google Docs works in the same way as uploading any file to Podio. Podio users can click the 'Add files' icon anywhere they see it, select 'Google Docs,' connect their Podio account to a Google account, then simply pick the Google Docs and files they want to share within Podio.
"This is the perfect marriage of productivity tools for us," said Matt Villenauve, President of Podio customer LabelMatch. "We now have a global repository of all our tasks, projects and communications on Podio connected to our mission-critical Google Docs."
The new Google Docs integration follows the December release of Podio for Google Apps in the Google Apps Marketplace, empowering Podio users to turn any email into an actionable task on Podio, connecting their Google Apps inbox with their entire Podio workflow. Both Podio for Google Apps and the Podio Google Docs integration are designed to deeply connect all aspects of a user's workflow.
Podio offers core features like activity streams, private messaging, task management, employee networks, contacts, reporting, webforms and calendaring, as well as a simple but powerful App Builder. Using drag-and-drop functionality, Podio users can create purpose-built apps for project management, lead management, business development, HR, communications and anything else they are working on.
Podio is an online platform with a new take on work and how it gets done. For the first time ever you can create your own work tools and shape the way you work. No technical skills required. No dependency on IT. Podio gives people more power than they've ever had before to do everyday work better, smarter and in their own way.
