“Partner sales grew over 300 percent from the first to the second quarter of 2008,” noted Ed Kaczor, Vice President of Sales, Colligo Networks. “By joining the Colligo Partner Program, Microsoft Partners are able to increase their SharePoint business. Colligo partners differentiate their SharePoint offering with premier desktop software that solves three business challenges: (1) anywhere productivity with offline access for mobile workforces, (2) browser latency with local caching of SharePoint content for an instant user experience, and (3) Outlook integration to support email drag-and-drop and better content management.”
“Our partnership with Colligo was a strategic decision,” said Tim Wallis, CEO of Content and Code Ltd. in the United Kingdom. “Colligo for SharePoint fits well with our business model and allows our customers to meet key requirements, including the capability of working offline and great drag-and-drop functionality. Colligo for SharePoint allows our customers to expand on an existing MOSS platform and opens opportunities to branch out within the organizations.”
A recently published case study entitled “Education Services Firm Drives Adoption of SharePoint for Email Management” highlights one of Content and Code’s customer success stories. Geoff Carter, Head of ICT Business, IT Services at The Learning Trust comments: “Colligo Contributor Add-In is so simple to use that it is driving adoption of SharePoint. It improves access by making SharePoint libraries and lists available in an Outlook folder tree. More importantly, users can easily drag-and-drop emails to document libraries, improving centralization and management of content, while enhancing collaboration across departments.” The Learning Trust is a not-for-profit company that runs all the education services for the London Borough of Hackney, an area comprised of 220,000 people.
