VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA – March 21, 2018 – Colligo, a leading provider of collaboration apps for the digital workplace, today announced the full availability of the Colligo Email Manager for Microsoft Office 365, an add-in that provides seamless and secure knowledge and records capture to Microsoft SharePoint for Office 365 deployments.
Complementing the advanced data governance features of Office 365 Security and Compliance Center, the add-in enables workers to easily file emails and attachments to SharePoint on-the-go, from any device. This is the latest addition to the Colligo Engage platform, which recently won the award for Best Mobile Solution from the European SharePoint, Office 365 & Microsoft Azure Community at the 2017 European SharePoint Conference.
“Knowledge managers, records managers, and IT leaders face a profound challenge in balancing information governance imperatives with the ease of use that workers expect,” said Colligo COO, Loic Triger. “If both pieces aren’t there then corporate information can be lost in silos or inappropriately exposed. We’re helping our customers solve this issue by giving them a streamlined email capture solution that’s easy to support and manage, while reducing legal risk and increasing content discoverability.”
The add-in works in conjunction with Colligo Console, the Azure-based administration and configuration platform that enables administrators to onboard add-in users, deploy policies, ensure compliance, and report analytics. Once it’s deployed, users will see the same familiar add-in interface wherever they access Outlook, including the desktop client, native mobile apps, or Office 365 online.
“Empowering productivity by making collaboration and information management easier is a focus for Microsoft Office 365,” said Mike Ammerlaan, Director, Microsoft Office 365 Ecosystem at Microsoft Corp. “Customers’ information governance is strengthened when information, including emails, is properly tagged in the right location. Adding metadata in the form of Microsoft SharePoint properties to content is a critical part of robust records and knowledge management. Colligo’s add-in facilitates capture of both the content and the associated properties to a centralized SharePoint repository.”
Michael Osterman, President of Osterman Research said, “The uptake in Microsoft Office 365 is going to fundamentally change how and where employees work. With people moving between devices and responding quickly to requests, this has the potential to be highly disruptive to knowledge and records management processes. Colligo is flipping this challenge on its head. By making it simple and easy for workers to file emails from anywhere with rich metadata, worker mobility changes from a liability into a distinct advantage.”
