New Cloud-based Colligo Console Delivers Content-management Control, Security, and Flexibility Via Microsoft Azure
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – June 23, 2016 – Today Colligo, the global leader in mobile content management (MCM) solutions for the collaborative enterprise, announced that it has received yet another highly-sought-after industry accolade: The Microsoft Silver Cloud Platform Competency partner certification. The certification follows Colligo’s recent release of Colligo Engage 2016, the essential mobile content management platform for every worker to access and contribute to corporate information in any content store, on any device, from any location. Colligo Engage 2016 features the new Colligo Console, the command center for data governance and mobile content management.
“Serving Colligo Console from the cloud empowers IT leaders to onboard users, deploy content policies, ensure compliance, and report analytics, all across multiple supported client devices and operating systems,” says Colligo CEO Barry Jinks. “We chose Azure for its best-in-class security, scalability, and ‘run-from-anywhere’ geographic coverage.”
Microsoft’s Cloud Platform competency enables partner customers to take advantage of infrastructure and software-as-a-service (SaaS) solutions built on Microsoft Azure. To achieve its certification for this competency, Colligo met comprehensive Azure-consumption, customer-adoption, and technical-expertise thresholds.
“The future of mobile content management hinges on vendors’ ability to continually help their customers improve their systems to drive end-user adoption,” said Nicole Herskowitz, senior director of product marketing for Microsoft Azure, in a recent blog post. “Colligo is an example of how Microsoft works with innovative businesses who make use of our platforms and services to address the critical customer challenge. We anticipate Colligo will continue to partner with us to deliver innovative solutions to their customers.”
“This certification further strengthens Colligo’s long-term collaboration with Microsoft,” notes Colligo’s Jinks. “Our Microsoft Silver Cloud Platform Competency complements the Microsoft Gold Application Development Competency we’ve held since 2005, but most important is what this means for Colligo customers: IT leaders get the data governance they demand, and end users get content access on the device they prefer.”
“Our engineers have worked hard to get this recognition,” says Colligo CTO Dan Mills. “In delivering Colligo Engage 2016, our efforts to achieve our own strategic technical and business objectives aligned nicely with meeting the requirements for Microsoft Cloud Platform silver accreditation.”
The Complete Colligo Engage 2016 platform consists of the Colligo Engage Email application suite, the Colligo Engage Mobile application suite, and the Colligo Console. The entire suite is available free for up to five users. Colligo Engage 2016 enterprise pricing is $4 per seat per suite, and $6 per seat for the complete Colligo Engage 2016 bundle.
