OfficeDrop Dramatically Improves Desktop Sync and Search for Windows

Scouring the Cloud for Your Files Is Simple With OfficeDrop

CAMBRIDGE, MA--(Marketwire - Jun 21, 2012) - Today, OfficeDrop announced a major upgrade for its Windows apps and online cloud storage platform, which now makes syncing files and searching the cloud as easy as it should be. Users can now instantly sync any folder with a simple right-click, as well as use OfficeDrop's powerful search engine to find files by filename, words contained in the file, and upload date, among other data. This includes scanning to synced folders from mobile devices, which instantly places documents on a Windows PC.

"We want Windows users to know that there are app makers like OfficeDrop out there who are still building solutions for them," said Prasad Thammineni, Co-Founder and CEO of OfficeDrop. "We know that 91% of small businesses operate on Windows, so this update will make our customers' lives easier, right away. OfficeDrop has always been built specifically for the small business user, and this is no exception. Just wait until you see what we have planned for Windows 8!"

OfficeDrop believes that search results shouldn't be ugly or hard to sort through, either. Their unique interface lets users search documents better than if they had the original paper, using thumbnail or thumbnail plus text result views that highlight the search term in the file, depending on their preference. This is more than just an aesthetic upgrade. Research shows that people remember their paper documents visually, so OfficeDrop lets them search that way, too.

And, what good is the cloud if it's not easily shared? With OfficeDrop, users create a unique URL from any synced file. This makes it sharable with anyone, anywhere with internet access. We call it Sync2Link(tm) File Sharing. Simply right-click a synced file, choose "share as a link," and use the URL to spread that file and spread on Twitter, Facebook, through email, however you like! Those with the link can view or download the file as they please. For security, users can revoke access, or remove links, as desirable.

As an added bonus, OfficeDrop has increased the size of its free cloud storage plans to 5 GB for new free users who sign up before the end of June!

OfficeDrop is a complete cloud solution for businesses, from digitizing documents for the cloud to storage accounts that are sharable with teams. To learn how OfficeDrop makes digital life simple with its scan-and-capture apps and services, visit
