Amium Integrates With Microsoft Office Online to Simplify Team Document Collaboration
AeroFS, a provider of integrated collaboration solutions for the enterprise, has added new document creation and editing capabilities to its content-centric collaboration product, Amium, that provide seamless access to Microsoft Office Online features and version history. A result of AeroFS’ participation in the Microsoft Cloud Storage Partner Program, this integration allows Amium users to create, open, view and edit Microsoft Word, Microsoft PowerPoint and Microsoft Excel documents within Amium – including real-time co-authoring for collaborating on documents.
The new real-time co-authoring capabilities will be beneficial to Amium users because they enable several contributors to edit the same document simultaneously and see each other’s updates as they are made, as well as present information and real-time cursor tracking for each user, according to Yuri Sagalov, co-founder and CEO of AeroFS.
Amium unifies file synchronization and sharing, team messaging and associated collaboration activities in a cloud-based solution. Built on AeroFS’ enterprise file sync and share (EFSS) platform, Amium enables teams to engage in their essential group discussions, content creation, and development efforts in one place.
Editing is a core part of Amium’s Office Online integration, and can be accessed by clicking on any Word, PowerPoint or Excel document. The document is opened with the appropriate Office Online application and presented in the browser window. Amium users can edit documents collaboratively with other users through Office Online, which manages document changes and merges automatically. Amium also offers high-fidelity, interactive previews of all Office documents as part of the environment.
