Surging Demand for Mobile Collaboration Drives Landmark First Half for harmon.ie

Industries Realize Mobile Business Value Using harmon.ie Solutions

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwired - Jul 28, 2014) - Enterprise mobile collaboration leader harmon.ie today announced a momentous start to 2014 -- closing a record first half as enterprises around the globe focus on empowering an efficient workforce with collaboration tools both in and out of the office. As the mobile enterprise era jumped into full swing, the company saw a 290 percent spike in mobile sales over the same period in 2013, in addition to adding more than 130 new customers to its substantial customer base.

According to Forrester Research, Inc. VP and Research Director Chris Andrews in The Forrester Wave™: Global BYOD Management Services, Q2 2014, "Enterprise mobility is a top item on every organization's business and IT agenda -- a reflection of the 'mobile mind shift' that has already made its mark on 21st century business."

New marquee customers span the globe as organizations start to understand the business value of harnessing mobile initiatives to go paperless, empower field workers and ease project management demands. However, industry-specific use cases have surfaced as primary drivers to the company's quickly growing market traction, particularly in the energy and financial services verticals. Prime examples include Eneco and NIBC Bank.

"As a leading company in providing sustainable energy solutions, we need to collaborate closely to coordinate our work in wind parks on land and sea, bio, solar and hydro energy, all across Europe," said Nezah Samur, Business Analyst at Eneco. "And because SharePoint and Office 365 are such important pieces of our collaboration strategy, it was critical for us to make them easily accessible to our business users. harmon.ie was the perfect solution to generate the high levels of SharePoint/Office 365 user adoption we need to run our business."

"NIBC has a culture in which people work together, share knowledge and support each other, so it was important for us to allow our employees to be able to work from any place at any time," said Wybe Koolstra, Innovation Manager Digital Workspace at NIBC Bank. "harmon.ie is a key part of our digital workplace solution that enables the bank to realize a uniquely close form of teamwork and cooperation across all departments and geographies."

Recently lauded as a top business application -- earning recognition as a Mobility Tech Zone Product of the Year Award winner and named the Best International App at Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2014 -- harmon.ie Mobile now gives users offline document access, SharePoint List support and the ability to natively annotate PDFs or save to OneDrive, SharePoint and Office 365.

As mobile collaboration takes root in global enterprises, harmon.ie creates a cohesive, simplified user experience that ties together disjointed apps. With the rampant use of Microsoft productivity tools like MS Office, Office 365 and SharePoint, OneDrive, Office for iPad, Yammer, etc., companies want more than what Microsoft can offer out of the box. harmon.ie creates a seamless, single-screen user experience connecting critical points of the mobile collaboration ecosystem to let workers focus on their jobs rather than on manipulating information across disparate apps.

"We are powering the connected mobile work experience and helping organizations evolve to meet the demands of the mobile collaboration enterprise," stated Yaacov Cohen, CEO of harmon.ie. "If the first half is any indication, harmon.ie is poised to disrupt the collaboration space as we move toward our vision of a fully unified mobile work experience and continue to lead the market in innovation."
