Second Patent Granted to the Company in 2008
Vancouver, BC, May 6, 2008 – Colligo Networks Inc., a leader in desktop collaboration solutions, today announced that the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) has approved the issuance of patent No. 7,366,743, filed on March 6, 2002, for the Company’s peer-to-peer database synchronization technology. This is the second patent issued to the Company in 2008. Additional applications are currently in process at the USPTO.
Synchronous peer-to-peer database synchronization is a core technology that has been used in Colligo products since 2001. This technology employs an efficient method for replicating databases without the need for a central server. In contrast to traditional approaches, Colligo’s peer-to-peer technology extracts changes from individual local databases and synchronizes them in an efficient manner directly with other individuals on a local network. One application of the technology, employed in Colligo Workgroup Edition for Lotus Notes, is used for peer-to-peer replication of IBM® Lotus Notes® databases. It allows mobile teams equipped with wireless capable laptops to instantly and securely replicate Lotus Notes databases directly between clients, improving productivity and collaboration when disconnected from the Domino® server.
This technology has been deployed by leading organizations, including PricewaterhouseCoopers, Crowe Chizek and Company, Deutsche Bundespost, General Motors, and KPMG. Colligo Workgroup Edition for Lotus Notes was awarded the 2005 Lotus Advisor Silver Editors’ Choice Award.
Dave Foster, Colligo VP of Product Development commented, “This is an example of the novel technology that Colligo has been developing since inception. We have several other patents in process at the USPTO and expect to see others granted this year.”
