Huddle have create a native component, designed to create, edit and share documents, for their enterprise content collaboration suite to tackle the usage of MS Word and OneNote by customers. Huddle Note allows users to quickly add and share ad-hoc notes within the cloud-based suite, providing a better and more convenient option for users than reverting to third-party applications.
The new Huddle application directly competes with SharePoint for document management, file sharing and content collaboration, and affects a customer’s use of Word and OneNote, placing Huddle in the strategic position of being a leading alternative to SharePoint, and with Box and Tibbr planning to release similar applications next year, called Notes and Pages respectively, Huddle seems to have got ahead of its rivals!
Alastair Mitchell, CEO of Huddle, said: “We wanted to let users create lightweight content within Huddle, and not have to go elsewhere to do it, and share the documents right from there. It’s very natural for us to build a tool like this.”
Note will also allow users to track changes that have been made to files and documents via a version control feature, review usage logs, and because it is a native component to the Huddle suite, it will note be governed by security features, IT administration and access control mechanisms.
Mitchell added: “We’re going to keep it simple. Our use case is simple content creation. Wherever you’re using Huddle, you can use Note.
Huddle has also improved their app for iPhones and iPads in order to take advantage of the new features in iOS7.
