HyperOffice Outlook collaboration and Exchange Alternative tools recognized with award for Hosted Application Software innovation


Rockville, MD -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/13/2006 --HyperOffice today announced it is the winner of a Horizon Award, one of just 10 companies selected by an independent panel of senior IT executives that evaluated new business technologies for Computerworld, the weekly IDG publication that is the premier source of IT industry news and analysis.

Based in Rockville, MD., HyperOffice is the developer of HyperOffice, Web-based software that makes it easier for owners, employees, clients, partners and suppliers of growing businesses to work together as a team, plan projects, share and edit documents, schedule meetings, and stay connected via email.

HyperOffice delivers to growing organizations today the power and productivity of software that only the largest companies with a mammoth IT budget could otherwise afford -- business-class email without spam and viruses; document management with online storage, versioning, user rights and workflow; contact management, scheduling, task management, discussion groups, security, backup, and more.

Built into HyperOffice is HyperShare for Outlook, software and collaboration tools that allow users to keep using Outlook, yet share calendars, contacts, documents and tasks both with and without Microsoft Exchange.

“The Computerworld Horizon Awards recognize companies developing innovative, promising technologies that hold the potential to significantly affect enterprises in the near future,” said Don Tennant, editor in chief of Computerworld. “Our panel of senior IT executives evaluated more than two hundred submissions from leading corporations, universities and research labs. HyperOffice joins a select group of innovators focused on bringing new thinking and solutions to the market to the benefit of all.”

“The caliber of submissions, the excellence of winners, is amazing, and it’s an honor to be one among the select group of innovators spotlighted by Computerworld,” said Farzin Arsanjani, president of HyperOffice.
