Orlando, FL, June 4, 2007 – Penton Media’s Windows IT Pro, SQL Server Magazine and Office & Sharepoint announced that Colligo Networks was a finalist for the Best of Tech•Ed 2007 Awards in the SharePoint category. The overall winner in the SharePoint category will be determined at Tech•Ed 2007 in Orlando, FL. The winner will be announced on June 6 at an evening reception hosted by Windows IT Pro at the Peabody Hotel at 7:00 p.m.

“The field includes more than 260 entries and after technically evaluating all of the entries, we chose finalists based on the product’s strategic importance to the market, its competitive advantages and the value to the customer,” said Michael Otey, Technical Director for Windows IT Pro.

Colligo ContributorTM is an easy-to-deploy .NET client application that extends the power of Microsoft Office SharePoint® to the desktop. It increases productivity and adoption by enabling users to instantly and securely access, modify, and create SharePoint content online and offline through a rich client interface. Colligo Contributor brings together the intuitive usability of desktop applications with the rich collaboration and content management functionality of SharePoint. Two user interface options are included: a standalone desktop client and a Microsoft Office Outlook® Add-in. The newly released Outlook Add-in integrates SharePoint document libraries to Outlook folders. Email message fields (To, From, Subject, Date, etc.), attachments, and custom metadata are automatically synchronized to web-based SharePoint sites by simple drag-and-drop within Outlook.

“Being chosen by these three respected industry publications truly validates our solution,” comments Barry Jinks, President and CEO, Colligo Networks. “It’s an honour to have been selected alongside CorasWorks and Quest Software for the SharePoint category. We’d like to thank the editors for choosing us as finalists for the Tech•Ed awards.”
