New Collaboration Platform, Colligo Engage, Unifies Enterprise Information Systems for Improved Compliance, Staff Productivity and IT Visibility

Innovative enterprise platform developed by Colligo, pioneer in mobile data synchronization technology for SharePoint

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Oct. 15, 2014) -

  • Research released in July by Gartner advocates for a "bimodal" approach to enterprise mobile applications. On one hand, IT departments need to be agile, responding rapidly to the growing needs of workers for effective mobile solutions. On the other hand they need to ensure these solutions do not compromise information governance and security.

  • Colligo Engage unites enterprise information systems such as SharePoint, Office 365, OneDrive for Business and Exchange through a suite of applications that deliver a seamless user experience across desktop and mobile devices, while providing IT control and visibility through a new cloud service.

Colligo, the leading provider of data synchronization solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced the launch of Colligo Engage, a new collaboration platform that securely unites corporate information across existing enterprise systems for a more streamlined and engaging experience on any desktop or mobile device.

The new Colligo platform improves worker engagement and productivity with an organization's sanctioned systems through a family of applications that are built around everyday tools that users know and love, such as Outlook, Windows Explorer, Mac Finder, phones and tablets. Colligo Engage also features a powerful management and analytics center in the cloud that provides IT with greater control and visibility to facilitate decision-making and enforce compliance. The solution supports bring your own device (BYOD), is highly secure and fully compatible with major MDM systems such as MobileIron, Good Technology, IBM, Citrix and Oracle.

Industry analysts have outlined the need for solutions like Colligo Engage. In a recent report by 451 Research, Director of Research Alan Pelz-Sharpe comments: "Today, we have the promise of leveraging the cloud and installing lightweight applications on our own personally owned devices, providing anywhere, anytime access to any file or system. We say 'promise' because this is far from a reality for most enterprise workers today."

Co-founded in 2000 by CEO Barry Jinks, Colligo is widely recognized as a leader in mobile data synchronization for SharePoint. The company has a long history of enabling enterprise employees to efficiently access the content they need from any device, online or offline.

"With security top of mind for CIO's, understanding workers' interactions with corporate content, whether in-office or remote, is absolutely crucial," says Barry Jinks. "With our platform, enterprises can offer employees the flexibility to utilize their preferred devices but through a highly safe environment, never leaving any room for data vulnerability."

"Many enterprises are moving to a more collaborative, mobile-enabled environment. CIO's should be able to leverage their existing systems without having to replace their business processes or compromise security - that is the key need our new platform addresses," adds Jinks. "This announcement is really just the tip of the iceberg for us. Over the coming months, we'll be rolling out new connectors to more enterprise systems that CIO's already have in place, so stay tuned."

Product Availability

Colligo Engage is available immediately as a per employee monthly subscription via Colligo and its partners.
