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. Its free Android app recently added integrated editing on Honeycomb-based tablets for Microsoft Office, Excel, and PowerPoint files--whether connected to the Web or not--to improve mobile collaboration. Those edits are backed up, stored, synced, and shared with your team. Soonr's cloud basis means virtual device interoperability, so enterprises contending with consumerization--or those that intentionally support a variety of hardware and operating systems--stand to benefit. The Workplace app for Android is free, but enterprise teams will likely want to pony up for one of Soonr's premium plans.
