with and without Microsoft Exchange, Sharepoint
New beta of collaboration suite does more than connect iPhone to corporate
email, contacts, calendars
ROCKVILLE, MD., July 16, 2008 — HyperOffice today launched a new public
beta of business collaboration tools that do more than connect the first
and second-generation Apple iPhones to secure corporate email, contacts,
calendars, tasks and notes.
This second beta of HyperOffice for the iPhone includes usability
enhancements and, more significantly, access to shared documents, using
built-in tools that connect to corporate messaging systems and operate as
an alternative to Microsoft Exchange and Sharepoint.
The beta also includes a 30-day free trial of HyperOffice, the
award-winning webware that makes it easier for owners, employees, clients,
partners and suppliers of growing businesses to collaborate, communicate,
plan projects, share documents, schedule meetings and tasks, and manage
information, anytime, from work, from home, while traveling, using any

“This is what the new iPhone 3G does not have,” said Farzin Arsanjani,
president of HyperOffice.
“MobileMe and support for Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync begin to finally
give business users of the iPhone the ability to sync and share calendars,
contacts, email and tasks. That’s what we delivered back in January 2008
with the initial beta of HyperOffice collaboration tools for the iPhone.
“But they’re still basically emailing files back and forth as attachments.
You’re not managing documents with online storage, version control, user
rights and workflow,” said Arsanjani.
“In contrast, with HyperOffice, five people in three cities in two time
zones can all work with the same spreadsheet at the same time, trying to
knock out a proposal by deadline.”
HyperOffice operates as software-as-a-service. It works on the iPhone. It
works on any smartphone — including the Blackberry. It works on any PC,
Mac or handheld device. All users need is a browser and an Internet
connection. There’s nothing to download from iTunes. There’s nothing to
install, fix, upgrade and patch.
Just switch on your iPhone. Fire up Safari. Log into your HyperOffice
account. That gives users a suite of web-based applications that deliver
the power and productivity of collaboration software that only the largest
company with a mammoth IT budget could otherwise afford.
Where iPhone 3G users can now sync email, calendars and contacts to
personal desktop computers, HyperOffice transforms the iPhone into a
business collaboration tool. At the office, at home or while traveling,
users of the iPhone with HyperOffice may also share group and project
calendars with team members and clients who also use Outlook and
HyperOffice. Users may also retrieve, share and update address books,
projects and tasks, and manage documents with online storage, versioning,
user rights and commenting. HyperOffice also provides discussion groups,
security and backup; and business-class email without spam and viruses.
Plus, if you’re working on a Mac or PC, HyperOffice also offers web
conferencing, Exchange and Sharepoint functionality, Outlook sync,
Intranet/Extranet page and portal builders, time and expense tracking, and
an online database application.
All for about $7 per user per month. In English — and in Spanish. At the
same time. On a business trip to clients in Los Angeles, Maria can update
sales orders with John in New York. Maria picks her language. John picks
his. HyperOffice keeps track of who needs applications to display in which
“Bottom line, HyperOffice turns the iPhone into a business tool, not just a
great phone,” said Arsanjani.
