Specialist in Cloud-Based Solutions for Small and Medium-Sized Businesses Becomes OEM Partner and Selects WebDrive as Technology Behind Market-Driven Products
ANNAPOLIS, MD and ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Nov 20, 2014) - OfficeDesktop, a specialist provider of cloud-based solutions to small and medium businesses, has become an OEM partner of South River Technologies (SRT), incorporating the software developer's WebDrive technology into its own cloud-based business solutions.
SRT is an innovator in secure file access and managed file transfer software. Its flagship product, WebDrive, enables desktop applications to access files on remote servers as if they were on a USB drive, essentially cloud-enabling every application on a user's desktop. SRT pioneered internet drive-mapping, and today the company's software is trusted by more than 80,000 customers in 130 countries.
OfficeDesktop currently provides three core products for smart business users: CloudDrive, a business file-server for unlimited users that provides storage, file sharing and file transfer; OfficeMailbox, a cloud-based email service developed for mobile workers and businesses; and OfficeDesktop, a cloud-based collaboration suite.
"Our vision is to provide productivity-boosting cloud solutions for businesses of all sizes," said Bob Mathew, CEO for OfficeDesktop. "As our customer base grew, we understood that we needed to deliver purpose-built features for business teams including desktop file access, file locking and group folders. We needed to go beyond to support advanced features such as file locking, and deliver a more complete user experience. We reviewed the market and WebDrive was the clear winner in terms of manageability, usability and native drive mapping."
Tracy Welsh, VP of Business Development for South River Technologies added: "It's great to partner with OfficeDesktop, a company that shares our vision of delivering secure, intuitive solutions that enable business productivity. Work habits are changing and businesses are looking for solid and usable technologies to support increasingly mobile and virtual teams. OfficeDesktop delivers a business-focused solution with functionality that goes beyond consumer cloud services such as Dropbox and Google Drive. We look forward to seeing OfficeDesktop's customer base grow in the coming months and years."
WebDrive integrates corporate FTP, WebDAV and SharePoint servers with desktop applications by mapping a network drive to these servers. WebDrive users can also access popular cloud storage services including Amazon S3, Box, Dropbox, Google Drive and OneDrive, enabling integrated connectivity with files in a variety of cloud or on-premise server locations.
Mathew concluded: "We're already enjoying our partnership with SRT. I look forward to continued growth across our business, partner base and product functionality with cloud-based products that are relevant, robust, secure, and flexible."
