Cambridge, United Kingdom – December 06, 2018 – Collabora Productivity, the driving force behind putting LibreOffice onto the Cloud, and PowerFolder, a German-based file sync, share and backup solutions provider (aka dal33t GmbH) enter into a partnership agreement to ensure PowerFolder users have access to Collabora Online: the powerful, open-source and highly interoperable on-premise office suite in the cloud.
This partnership provides PowerFolder users with the opportunity of using Collabora Online – to work online on their documents, presentations and spreadsheets. With Collabora Online integrated, documents can be edited directly in the cloud, without the cumbersome effort of having to download them or an Office program having to be started, with the document text never leaving your server. Collabora Online runs with all current browsers, without any need for additional plug-ins. It interoperates with all common office formats, such as .odt, .docx, .doc, .ods, .xlsx, .xls, or .odp, .pptx, .ppt and many more.
Announcing the cooperation, PowerFolder’s CEO Christian Sprajc says,
“I am pleased that, with Collabora Productivity, we can offer a very powerful and secure online document processing system. Thanks to their transparent product development approach, partner relationship strategy and long-term support, Collabora Online is a secure, reliable solution for the longer term.”
“We love to work with bright partners who have a great vision for their technology.”, said Michael Meeks, General Manager Collabora Productivity, “It is good to collaborate with those who value privacy, to provide a joint support offering that is easy to buy, install and use.”
The open source productivity application from Collabora Productivity can be used both in the cloud, as well as, if desired, also on-site, installed on clients’ own local servers, and thereby, optimally integrated into existing structures. The user interface can be also customized. In addition, the combination of PowerFolder’s support and Collabora Productivity’s SLA gives Collabora Online administrators the confidence to deploy today.
