11 iPad Apps For Better Collaboration
August 02, 2011 08:00 AM The Apple iPad's inherent mobility makes it an obvious weapon for efficient enterprise collaboration--provided you're armed with the right apps.
Soonr rolls up project collaboration and document management with file syncing and online backup in a single platform, reducing the need to go to multiple sites and vendors. It recently launched integrated iPad editing for Microsoft Office, Excel, and PowerPoint files--whether connected to the Web or not--to improve mobile collaboration. Those edits are stored, synced, and shared with your team. Soonr is cloud-based, providing virtual device interoperability, so enterprises contending with consumerization--or those that intentionally support a variety of hardware and operating systems--stand to benefit. The iPad app is free, but enterprise teams will likely want to pony up for one of Soonr's premium plans.
