With new integration of Microsoft Office 365, Microsoft SharePoint and Yammer, harmon.ie, the user experience company for the mobile enterprise, today announced the industry’s first comprehensive mobile collaboration app. Combining the most popular Microsoft document sharing and social applications into a single mobile app, harmon.ie now gives mobile business users the power to share documents and collaborate with colleagues using SharePoint Online or on-premise, SkyDrive Pro, email, telephone and, now, Yammer social within a single native app on iOS, Android and BlackBerry 10 devices.
Previously available in harmon.ie for Outlook on the desktop, Yammer is now integrated into harmon.ie Mobile and the new harmon.ie OWA (Outlook Web App) in the cloud. Delivering a complete social offering, harmon.ie enterprise users now have seamless SharePoint document and Yammer social collaboration on the desktop, on tablets and smartphones, and in the cloud – making the mobile enterprise a reality by putting business tools to work for the everyday user through a single mobile work experience.
“Our mobile workers want to be able to do everything from their tablets and phones that they can at their desks, but they don’t have the time to switch between a host of apps. SharePoint provides the document collaboration foundation we need, and Yammer provides the platform to better connect and engage employees to drive collaboration, but the experience is disconnected. We like the way that harmon.ie brings it all together in one easy-to-use mobile app experience,” said Norman Spurr, Senior Manager of Applications at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO), Australia's national science agency. “Our team looks forward to sharing and editing important documents, while focusing on the task at hand by getting the right updates and documents they need to match their workflow.”
According to a recent study, “The High-Cost of Mobile Business Users’ Rogue IT Practices,” if companies do not properly support the changing needs of today’s increasingly mobile workforce, workers will go outside of approved IT standards to get their work done. (For a closer look at how good users can go rogue, read some real-world “winning” stories from harmon.ie’s recent “Rogue IT Horror Story” contest at: http://www.rogueitstories.com.)
To avoid the increased rogue IT risks of data breaches, loss of valuable data and company IP, and potentially large financial losses, companies are seeking out secure alternatives to support their changing work dynamic on any device – desktop, tablet or mobile. That is what the harmon.ie offering is all about.
“We’re excited to help businesses like harmon.ie provide their customers tools and solutions that allow them to communicate and collaborate in a more productive way,” said Dene Cleaver, product marketing manager for the Office Store at Microsoft Corp. “We look forward to seeing the harmon.ie app in the Office Store.”
“Today’s business users want a consolidated view – they can’t be expected to sift through a dozen different mobile business apps while trying to get their job done on the fly,” said Yaacov Cohen, CEO of harmon.ie. “Combining the document collaboration power of Office 365/SharePoint with Yammer’s superior social platform gives our users a consolidated view of the information they need to be more efficient and effective while on the go.”
