Offers Powerful, Content-Centric Collaboration Experience for Both Internal and External Users

PALO ALTO, Calif., May 9, 2017 – AeroFS, a leader in integrated collaboration solutions, today unveiled a new release of its award-winning Amium collaboration platform optimized for intuitive, highly efficient real-time communications. The newest version of Amium delivers a powerful, content-centric collaboration environment, with the unique capability to collaborate seamlessly with people outside the organization.

Amium’s innovative external collaboration capability allows users and teams to work effortlessly with outside users at no additional cost — offering a highly effective, efficient tool for groups or individuals working with contractors, creative agencies or freelancers with multiple clients. Unlike competitive offerings, Amium provides external users and work teams the same ease-of-use, quality and sophistication  as internal collaborators  by extending collaboration capabilities outside the organization with real-time updates, communication and project management, all in a single location. Additionally, Amium combines robust, flexible group and direct messaging with automated file syncing and updating on one intuitive platform, while maintaining an audit trail of interactions and feedback from every user — whether they are internal or external.

“Our goal with Amium is to deliver a unique, rich and seamless collaborative experience that increases productivity not just inside an organization, but with customers, partners and clients,” said Yuri Sagalov, CEO.  “This major new release of Amium has removed the common frustrations of collaboration by combining sophisticated, yet simple-to-use enterprise-level business collaboration and communication technologies in a single cloud-based solution. Now users inside and outside the organization can work efficiently and respond in real-time, and intuitively collaborate at the pace desired by today’s modern business user.”

Amium enables users in marketing, design and other content-centric sectors to greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their collaboration with third parties as well as their own work teams.  The new app offers a centralized repository for all files and conversations, and the ability to effortlessly manage workflows, conversations and activity feeds from a single location. Among the latest featured capabilities in the new release are:

  • Real-time external/third-party collaboration

Users can easily collaborate with others outside the team by inviting them to a project at no additional cost. This makes it convenient for groups working with contractors and outside firms, or freelancers with multiple clients.

  • File-based collaboration

Amium is the first collaboration tool to combine file sync and share with real-time chat. This means that all the conversations users have about each project are easily organized and maintained through every version created.

  • Amium Projects
    This new feature combines files, folders and conversations to keep each project in one place. Users can create projects for particular tasks, such as event planning, website redesign or working with a specific client. Additionally, collaborators can easily archive projects, chats and conversations to keep their workspace uncluttered.

Pricing and Availability

The latest release of Amium is available now on Mac, Windows and Linux as well as iOS and Android. Amium is free and includes up to two projects and 2GB of file storage. Users can upgrade to unlimited projects and 100GB of file storage per user for $9 per user per month.
