Mainsoft unveils cross-platform suite for SharePoint, Google Docs users

Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes transformation into social workspace

By CBR Staff Writer

Mainsoft, a provider of cross-platform enterprise software has launched, a cross-platform suite of enterprise collaboration products designed to boost user adoption of Microsoft SharePoint and Google Docs.

Based on the premise that business users tend to ignore IT tools that require them to switch contexts, juggle multiple browser windows, and learn new collaboration habits, the new product suite brings some of the document-sharing, collaboration, and social networking tools into email, where users spend hours every workday.

The new enterprise suite can be used for Sharepoint Enterprise, SharePoint and Notes Edition, and for Google Docs Enterprise, while it supports departmental and organisation-wide installments with centralised deployments, provisioning, and management.

Mainsoft founder and CEO Yaacov Cohen said IT tools come from multiple vendors, live in separate contexts, and are new to most business users.

"The key to driving user adoption is bringing these tools into people’s day-to-day workplace, which is email and transforms Microsoft Outlook and Lotus Notes into a rich collaboration and social workspace, called ‘social email," Cohen said.
