Colligo Contributor for SharePoint® a Hit

Q2 2007 Marks Record Growth at Colligo Networks

Vancouver, BC, August 20, 2007 –  Colligo Networks, a leader in desktop collaboration solutions, reported a 70% increase in revenues in Q2 2007 over Q2 2006 and 77% gross profit for the same quarter. The growth is attributed to the success of the Colligo Contributor™ for SharePoint® product line, which this quarter narrowly overtook Workgroup Edition in sales. Colligo Contributor is an easy-to-deploy .NET client application that extends the power of Microsoft Office SharePoint® to the desktop. It increases productivity and adoption by enabling users to instantly and securely access, modify, and create SharePoint content online and offline through one of two user interfaces: a rich desktop client and an Outlook Add-in. Colligo Contributor has grown in market popularity, with sales up by 4,840% on last year.

“The success we’re having with Colligo Contributor this year is just phenomenal,” says Barry Jinks, President and CEO of Colligo Networks. “Our customers now include a number of large enterprise clients in a number of verticals, including professional services, technology, pharmaceuticals, distribution, and food products. We’ve seen a big uptake of our latest version Colligo Contributor for SharePoint v2.1 that includes an Outlook Add-in for better email and document management in SharePoint. We’ve really hit on an industry-wide hot button with this solution.”

Year to date, 148 customers have bought Colligo Contributor for SharePoint and several major contracts will be signed this Fall. “We expect that seats sales of our SharePoint solution will easily double again by the end of 2007,” adds Barry Jinks.

Version 2.1 of Colligo for SharePoint® enables users to easily store and manage emails, documents, and metadata in SharePoint. Extending the value of its SharePoint client technology beyond offline applications, this milestone release brings together the intuitive usability of desktop applications with the rich collaboration and content management functionality of SharePoint. With Version 2.1, emails, attachments, and message fields can be synchronized to web-based SharePoint sites by simple drag-and-drop within Outlook.

Colligo Contributor Version 2.1, which includes the Outlook Add-in, is available in single lot quantities for $125 from the Colligo online store at www.colligo.com/store. A 30-day trial of Colligo Contributor is available at www.colligocontributor.com. Volume pricing for business deployments and other enquiries can be directed to sales@colligo.com.
