As a Microsoft Cloud Storage Partner, Amium Adds Powerful Document Handling Features
PALO ALTO, Calif., September 20, 2016 – AeroFS, a leader in integrated collaboration solutions for the enterprise, today announced powerful new document creation and editing capabilities for its Amium™ content-centric collaboration product that provide seamless access to Microsoft Office Online features and version history. A result of AeroFS’ participation in the Microsoft Cloud Storage Partner Program, this tight integration allows Amium users to create, open, view and edit Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Excel documents within Amium – including real-time co-authoring for collaborating on documents – greatly simplifying team document workflows.
“We are excited to be participating in the Cloud Storage Partner Program, and have worked closely with Microsoft to ensure that Amium users can seamlessly collaborate on Office documents through our Office Online integration,” said Yuri Sagalov, co-founder and CEO of AeroFS. “The real-time co-authoring capabilities will be very beneficial to Amium users by enabling several contributors to edit the same document simultaneously and see each other’s updates as they are made, as well as present information and real-time cursor tracking for each user.”
Editing is a core part of Amium’s Office Online integration, and can be accessed easily with a single click on any Word, PowerPoint or Excel document. The document is opened with the appropriate Office Online application and presented in the browser window. Amium users can edit documents collaboratively with other users using Office Online, which manages all document changes and any necessary merges automatically, and users are never locked out of editing a document. Amium also offers high-fidelity, interactive previews of all Office documents as an integral part of the environment.
“We are excited to have Amium as a Cloud Storage Partner and appreciate their work in making Microsoft Office files directly accessible to their enterprise customers,” said Rob Howard, director of Office Ecosystem, Microsoft Corp. “This integration with Amium is the latest example of how Microsoft Office Online can enhance our partners’ offerings through the flexibility and seamless experience their users gain while working on their Office documents.”
