SugarSync Launches Small Business Edition

SugarSync for Business Delivers New Management Tools and Group Plans, Enabling Small Businesses to Sync Multiple Devices, Share and Collaborate, and Backup Files to the Cloud

SAN MATEO, CA--(Marketwire - November 3, 2009) - SugarSync, makers of the award-winning SugarSync digital synchronization, backup and sharing platform, today released a new version specifically designed for small businesses. Now including central administrative controls, flexible group pricing plans and free phone support, SugarSync for Business is ideal for highly-mobile, digitally-connected professionals to keep important data at their fingertips, in the office and on-the-go.

In addition to SugarSync's acclaimed computer and smartphone syncing capabilities, folder sharing and collaboration tools plus file backup features, the new version empowers a designated administrator to manage multiple user accounts, set-up and delete profiles, and allocate storage in an instant. The administrator may also disconnect individual user access while preserving data for company use.

"SugarSync for Business will transform the way your employees work," said Laura Yecies, chief executive officer at SugarSync. "They are already connected with laptops, smartphones and netbooks. With SugarSync, data is always up-to-date and available on any device, significantly increasing productivity. We designed our service to provide professionals with a simple, effective way to have continuous access to all of their work documents from anywhere, any time."

SugarSync for Business supports virtually all computer and smartphone operating systems, including Windows, Mac, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile and Android. This breadth of support ensures that users can choose to work from virtually any device from any location. SugarSync for Business is easy to install and requires zero server set-up, allowing small businesses to be up and running within minutes.

SugarSync has already been adopted by many small businesses and is especially popular with graphic designers, law firms, real estate offices, and other service-oriented companies with data-intensive environments. A recent internal user survey revealed 75% of the company's current customers use SugarSync in a work context. SugarSync can sync files in any folder, seamlessly mapping the way people already organize their digital file systems to all their devices. This makes backing up important work data easy without changing user behavior.

SugarSync for Business also offers free phone support seven days a week. Customizable group pricing plans start at $29.99/month with no set-up fees and a free 30-day trial to enable businesses to experience the SugarSync difference with no commitment.
