Centrally-managed apps enable consistent SharePoint access across Windows, Mac, iOS, and Android, with support for SharePoint 2013 and Windows 8
Microsoft SharePoint Conference 2012 — Las Vegas, NV — November 12, 2012 — Colligo Networks, the leading provider of SharePoint apps for the enterprise, today announced that Colligo Briefcase, their award-winning mobile app for secure SharePoint collaboration, is now available on Android, Mac OS X, and Apple iOS. Colligo’s complete mobile collaboration solution now also extends compatibility to Microsoft SharePoint 2013, Microsoft Office 2013, and Microsoft Windows 8 PCs and mobile devices.
Mobile collaboration tools are increasingly important to organizations using SharePoint, as they balance supporting consumerization with ensuring data security. According to a recent survey by AIIM, 90% of IT professionals reported that mobile device access to SharePoint does not satisfy or only partially satisfies their needs. With this release, Colligo enables companies to solve the BYOD challenge with a single solution that works across every platform, device, and version of SharePoint, on-premises, in the cloud, or in hybrid SharePoint environments.
“Colligo is ideal for keeping our mobile users productive, while ensuring critical content is managed in SharePoint”, said Mike Wright, Business Systems Analyst at Northpower, a major power utility. “The support for all major platforms – Windows, iOS, Android, and Mac – gives us even more flexibility in supporting BYOD.”
The complete Colligo solution provides organizations with:
Secure mobile SharePoint access – Award-winning mobile app, Colligo Briefcase, solves the SharePoint mobility challenge by providing secure access to SharePoint on Apple iOS, Mac OS X, and Android. Full offline support, metadata support, and industry-leading sync and security capabilities enable organizations to embrace BYOD while maintaining control of their corporate data. Compatibility with all major Mobile Device Management (MDM) solutions, coupled with Colligo’s customization and deployment services, ensures a secure and manageable enterprise mobile solution.
SharePoint email management – Colligo provides seamless integration between SharePoint and Microsoft Outlook or the desktop, for managing email, connected or offline, on both Windows and Mac. Advanced metadata support reduces corporate risk by ensuring content is accurately tagged and readily accessible.

“Colligo is one of the vendors we track in the key enterprise collaboration space,” said Alan Pelz-Sharpe, Research Director, Content Management and Collaboration at industry analyst The 451 Group. “The ability to access any document on any device anywhere has long been considered the Holy Grail for document management. This sync ability is clearly a boon to those who are adherents to BYOD, and mobile information workers in general.”
