Familiarity with pre-existing applications often reduces SharePoint adoption and can result in an exorbitant amount of information stored on users’ desktops or shared through file shares and email.

AvePoint, the established leader in enabling enterprise collaboration across platforms and devices, today announced the general availability of AvePoint Office Connect. AvePoint Office Connect drives SharePoint adoption and allows users to easily create and move content from Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Office, and Windows File Explorer into SharePoint.

AvePoint Office Connect merges content from Microsoft Outlook, Microsoft Office and Windows File Explorer effortlessly into Microsoft SharePoint. With seamless integration and unparalleled ease of use, content, emails and attachments can be added to SharePoint with a single click – removing the need to alternate between SharePoint and multiple app interfaces. AvePoint Office Connect enhances sharing and productivity through a unified experience. Key benefits include:

Quick and Secure Sharing: Share content via SharePoint directly from desktops, Outlook, or from Office applications in just one click without having to leave the application interfaces. Co-workers can easily collaborate on key documents, and can extend sharing to users outside the organization while maintaining content security.

Centralized Collaboration: Unify scattered information for various projects and increase productivity by saving content to SharePoint from multiple applications and setting up favorite SharePoint locations. Drag-and-drop emails or email attachments directly from Outlook into SharePoint via a Outlook plug-in, as well as automatically capture Outlook metadata attributes – such as To, From, Date, Subject – to map them into destination SharePoint library metadata fields. Facilitate collaboration and rapid knowledge sharing, making it faster and easier for users to locate, organize, and access the content they need via a cohesive platform.

Data Capture and Classification: Streamline the movement of content from user inboxes, desktops, and network drives directly into SharePoint, without having to save information in multiple places. AvePoint Office Connect then enables you to apply metadata upon your content’s entry to SharePoint in order to improve the findability of information and bolster records management efforts.

Simplified SharePoint Adoption: By seamlessly integrating popular, pre-existing desktop applications with SharePoint, users can immediately adopt SharePoint as their collaboration hub while still utilizing the programs that are most familiar to them.

“Familiarity with pre-existing applications often reduces SharePoint adoption and can result in an exorbitant amount of information stored on users’ desktops or shared through file shares and email,” said George Petrou, Chief Technical Officer, AvePoint. “AvePoint Office Connect streamlines communication and information sharing across the organization by simplifying the process of saving information to SharePoint and allowing users to access SharePoint without ever having to leave the applications they use most to get work done.”

AvePoint Office Connect is generally available today, June 9, 2015. For more information on the product and its features, please visit our website.
