Huddle says its new email collaboration features will transform the way knowledge is stored and shared in the enterprise.
Huddle’s email integration enables all email discussions surrounding content to be stored centrally and securely in the cloud. Feedback on documents is instantly recorded, searchable and audited in Huddle.
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. Without disrupting their workflow, all relevant parties are notified of the update via email and organisations can track and access all conversations and metadata surrounding a piece of content. There is full visibility around who has read, updated, downloaded and discussed a document.
At the same time, Huddle has introduced integration with VMware Zimbra, an open-source, next generation email and collaboration platform to enable seamless interaction between an employee’s VMware Zimbra inbox and Huddle workspaces.
With the connector, 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. Everyone that needs to access and comment on content can access it as soon as they log into their Huddle workspace.
The product enhancements and integration announcement strengthen workers’ ability to collaborate intelligently from puts Huddle head-to-head with Microsoft SharePoint and Exchange, Huddle says.
Andy McLoughlin, EVP strategy and co-founder of Huddle, said with such a vast amount of data now being stored and shared in the enterprise, businesses need to ensure that they have one version of the truth. “With our email integrations, Huddle is providing a central hub for all enterprise cloud content and email. Over the last four decades, email has become engrained in businesses worldwide.
“Although we recognise that the workforce isn’t about to stop using email, it is vital that organizations have access to all enterprise information, including content residing in inboxes. Now, everyone can have a record of all activity surrounding a file regardless of whether the conversations happened within or across the firewall, what email client or device they are using,” McLoughlin added.
Keeping track of the data stored on corporate email systems can prove a challenge for enterprises and end users alike. The majority of information continues to be distributed in the workplace via email with business users receiving around 100 emails per day, with almost a quarter containing attachments, according to technology market research firm Radicati Group.
“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.” McLoughlin added.
