Soonr Launches Team Connections for Social Business Collaboration

CAMPBELL, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 22, 2011) -

  • Connections allow business teams to easily and securely share files with outside entities such as clients, partners and suppliers
  • Connections are managed by the business teams, with no IT involvement and complement existing key Soonr features like sync and role-based access
  • Up to 20 Connection seats are included with standard Soonr Workplace packages

Soonr Inc., a cloud services company focused on team productivity for business, today introduced Soonr Connections, a new feature that lets users easily and securely work with outside team members such as clients, partners and suppliers.

Millions of consumers have proven the popularity of cloud services such as Dropbox to sync and share photos, videos and other files. Soonr takes cloud sharing to companies with a highly secure, flexible approach to file sharing, and sync by drawing on the social business concept of more control to the line of business teams and less dependence on IT to foster enhanced business productivity. Built from the ground up with business, remote access and security in mind, Soonr enables seamless file sharing inside and outside of an organization, across teams and projects, online or offline, from any mobile device or computer.

Soonr Connections reflect the way business works
Today, project teams often extend beyond the walls of the office to include external contributors such as clients, suppliers and partners. Business users can self-manage secure file sharing with Soonr Connections, easily granting and removing file access and setting time limits -- all without the need for a dedicated IT resource. For example, a marketing manager can grant access and work securely with his outside Web design firm on product collateral via one of his Connections. When the project is complete, access can easily be deactivated. Soonr Connections allow business users to collaborate with outside resources in shared projects just as if they're working in the next office.

"Evolusent is a leading edge integrated content technology company, and our eLearning team has successfully used Soonr for more than a year with excellent results," said Kaleem Ahmad, CEO of Evolusent. "They've been able to easily access documents from across the enterprise as well as share them with outside collaborators, which has resulted in more efficient workflow across projects and teams."

Built on a carrier-grade infrastructure, today more than 50,000 businesses rely on Soonr for securely storing, sharing, accessing, searching, editing and syncing critical files. Dedicated to security and reliability, Soonr has achieved 99.9+ percent availability since 2006, and operates its down data centers with 256-bit encryption, HIPAA and SAS 70 compliance.

"Soonr reflects the realities of today's workplace, where dynamic teams often consist of many entities working together and success is measured by finishing projects on time," said Martin Frid-Nielsen, founder and CEO of Soonr. "Combining a seamless user experience, enhanced collaboration features and enterprise-grade security, Soonr Workplace gives businesses a way to tap into the cloud to enhance workflow and receive an immediate ROI."

Soonr Connections are seamlessly integrated into Soonr Workplace, and immediately available within the Soonr Pro offering -- with 20 free Connections. Additional Connections, or seats, can be added for $4 per user per month.
