Huddle adds iPhone app, web conferencing and office plug-in

Office plug-in allows users to access documents stored online from desktop applications

By CBR Staff Writer

Online collaboration firm Huddle has launched new features for its online enterprise collaboration platform, including web conferencing, integration with Microsoft Office and an iPhone application. It has also extended its reach to some of the largest telecoms resellers in the US.

Reportedly, Huddle offers hosted suite of asynchronous collaboration and live communication tools in a single, enterprise-level application. It provides accessibility either side of the firewall across multiple platforms and languages.

According to Huddle, the new Office plug-in allows users to access documents stored online directly from their desktop applications, save their desktop files directly into Huddle, view and edit files, add new versions, request approvals and send notifications without opening a browser window; and the iPhone app offers access to document sharing, project tasks, discussions and whiteboards, as well as a complete view of the user’s personalised dashboard.

Huddle said that the web conferencing enables users to set up instantaneous meetings, schedule recurring events, share their desktop and content with other members of their workspace. It comes built-in low-cost global phone conferencing numbers and integrates directly with Outlook or Google calendar.
