Cambridge, United Kingdom and Zurich, Switzerland – December 8, 2016 – Kolab Systems has taken secure, scalable and friendly collaboration to the next level by integrating online office functionality with Collabora Online into the Open Source Kolab collaboration platform.
The integration of Collabora Online is the result of the close partnership announced at the beginning of this year. Together, we have created a beautifully seamless experience that provides a secure and easy-to-use, LibreOffice based online office suite, accessible directly from within the familiar Kolab web-based interface.
Collabora Online in Kolab comes with advanced collaboration features, allowing teams to jointly compose text documents, create spreadsheets, and design presentations. Team members can work from any location and all at the same time on the same documents, while still maintaining the highest levels of security and privacy that have become the hallmarks of Kolab Systems’ services and products.
Alongside Kolab’s other collaboration and productivity tools, such as email, calendar, tasks and notes, we have made our new Kolab more powerful and flexible than ever. By integrating a full-featured office suite within Kolab’s groupware functionalities, we have created a collaboration platform that will meet even the users’ most demanding expectations.
“Collabora should feel proud of this release” said Kolab Systems CEO, Georg Greve. “Since our joint announcement at FOSDEM 2016, both Kolab Systems and Collabora have worked side by side to combine the leading open source office and collaboration suites. You will finally be able to collaborate in confidence in the cloud.“
“Kolab Systems has done a wonderful job creating a seamless integration of Collabora Online” said Michael Meeks, General Manager at Collabora Productivity. “Their experience in providing enterprises with Open Source and secure communication and collaboration tools is extensive, and we are looking forward to the market response to their latest release.“
