Huddle announces Zimbra email tie-up

Users can respond to a content notification via any email client

By CBR Staff Writer

Enterprise cloud collaboration and content management firm Huddle has unveiled new email collaboration features that are set to transform the way knowledge is stored and shared in the enterprise.

Huddle’s email integration recognises that the majority of information continues to be distributed in the workplace via email and enables all email discussions surrounding content to be stored centrally and securely in the cloud.

In addition, Huddle has also announced its integration with VMware Zimbra, an open-source, next generation email and collaboration platform, which will enable interaction between an employee’s VMware Zimbra inbox and Huddle workspaces.

With the Huddle email integration, users can respond to a content notification via any email client and their comments will be directly added to the relevant whiteboard, discussion, file or task and organisations can now track, access all conversations and metadata surrounding a piece of content without disrupting their workflow, all relevant parties are notified of the update via email.

By connecting VMware Zimbra email with Huddle, people can collaborate intelligently from their inbox and enterprises have an alternative to Microsoft for communication and collaboration, email attachments can be easily saved into relevant Huddle workspaces, recipients can be added to workspace teams and address book contacts can be invited into Huddle without leaving VMware Zimbra.

Huddle Strategy excecutive vice-president and co-founder Andy McLoughlin said with the email integrations, Huddle is providing a central hub for all enterprise cloud content and email.

"When traditional email clients – such as Microsoft Outlook – and legacy collaboration systems launched, the latest web technologies that are now available to integrate applications and streamline the way in which people work had yet to come of age. Through our joint integration, Huddle and VMware Zimbra are offering enterprises the ability to link their next generation email and collaboration suite with their Huddle environment, providing a great user experience and better value for money," said McLoughlin.
