Largest US independent dental distributor, Benco Dental, solves their mobility challenge with Colligo Briefcase

Vancouver, BC, October 31, 2012 – Colligo Networks, the leader in email and document management solutions for Microsoft SharePoint, today announced Colligo Briefcase 3.3, adding powerful new capabilities to the secure SharePoint app for Apple mobile devices. Colligo offers the only enterprise-class suite of apps to deliver a consistent user experience when managing SharePoint content across desktop and mobile devices, including SharePoint/Outlook integration app, Colligo Email Manager; and Colligo Administrator, for centralized administration and management; in addition to the award-winning Colligo Briefcase for secure mobile access.

New in Colligo Briefcase 3.3

  • SharePoint calendar support with day/week/month views
  • Search SharePoint from your mobile device, including support for FAST Search Server for SharePoint
  • Create unlimited “Playlists” of SharePoint items, grouping related or frequently-used content for fast access
  • Prompt for metadata when new items are uploaded to SharePoint
  • Filter SharePoint columns to see only the data you want
  • Support for SharePoint content types

“Colligo Briefcase 3.3 reinforces our commitment to delivering the highest quality user experience across every device, without compromising the needs of the enterprise,” says Trevor Dyck, Director of Product Management, Colligo. “On one hand, this release adds features to increase end user productivity, such as the ability to search SharePoint from within the app, or create playlists of related content. On the other, it also recognizes that the backbone of enterprise content management is metadata, which must be supported, regardless of device.”

Benco Dental ensures fast, mobile access to sales materials with Colligo Briefcase

Benco Dental is the fastest growing US dental distributor, providing dental supplies, equipment, dental consulting, and equipment services to more than 30,000 dental professionals in all 50 states. To improve sales productivity and achieve faster customer response times, Benco chose Colligo Briefcase to enable their sales force to securely access SharePoint content from their iPads and iPhones.

Says Terry Barrett, VP of Information Technology at Benco Dental, “We searched for a solution that would enable mobile access to SharePoint, even when offline. Our sales guys are on the road, at dental offices and will frequently be offline, so that was essential. Some solutions just didn’t work offline. Others would only allow us to search on the document name and not on the metadata. Colligo Briefcase Enterprise met all our criteria in an easy-to-use iPad app.”

Full details of Benco Dental’s Colligo Briefcase implementation are available in this SharePoint iPad case study.
