Syncplicity's New iPad App Delivers Cloud-Based File Access

By

Cloud-based file management, sync, collaboration and backup solutions provider Syncplicity has unveiled a new iPad app that brings comprehensive and secure cloud-based file access and management to iPad users. From the iPad, Syncplicity users can now browse, share and manage files and folders stored on their PC, Mac, SharePoint servers, on the corporate network or in popular cloud-based services such as Google Docs.

According to Syncplicity, this universal file access includes shared Syncplicity folders set up for collaboration in businesses or sharing for personal use. Users can gain secure access to any file and folder anytime while mobile, eliminating the need to email file attachments, use VPNs, or upload files to a new place in order to access them from a mobile device, Syncplicity said.

In fact, the release of Syncplicity's iPad app closely follows on the heels of the new iPhone app, further extending the company's footprint in the cloud and mobile file management arena.

According to research firm Gartner, 80 percent of businesses will support a workforce using tablets by 2013. The benefits of using tablets in the office and out in the field ranges from instant on access capabilities to usage for document and video delivery, sales, field service and business analytics. While there are many workers who are opting to use their tablets to deliver presentations, collect and share data, Gartner also identified that workers are still doing a majority of labor-intensive tasks on their desktops or laptops, making the need for an automatic file management solution even more important.

In a statement, David Coleman, founder and managing director of Collaborative Strategies commented, "We have a saying, 'the vendor with the most connections wins.' Syncplicity's ability to create private clouds with Google Apps, SharePoint, VMware Zimbra, and now Salesforce, shows they have taken this strategy to heart and are on a winning path. Taking the cloud to where the users are - on their desktops, mobile devices and tablets - is the right strategy."

.

Similarly, stated Leonard Chung, Syncplicity's co-founder and chief product strategist, "We designed the new Syncplicity iPad app to give companies the most flexibility in supporting their mobile workforce. He added, "In today's always-on, always-connected business environment, Syncplicity eliminates the need for emailing documents or uploading them to a new place in order to gain mobile access. If you save a file on your desktop, SharePoint or anywhere you work, you should be able to simply access or share it anytime from your iPad with no special effort required. Syncplicity makes that easy and painless."
