Business professionals can now use their tablets to place calls and send faxes, with the launch of Imogo Mobile Technologies' ZaOffice suite of applications.
Cloud-hosted ZaOffice gives tablet users secure anytime, anywhere, any-device convenience for a range of innovative applications including Click-to-Call and Click-to-Fax, all done over the Internet. ZaOffice can be activated online.
ZaOffice was specifically designed to address the needs of small- to medium-sized businesses to deliver secure, enhanced mobility. ZaOffice transforms tablets into a mobile office by allowing users to access and email their files and make and answer phone calls while on the go.
According to a new study by the Online Publishers Association and Frank Magid Associates, tablet usage is exploding with market penetration expected to reach 47 percent by early 2013.
The company is offering a free ZaOffice account to the first 10,000 people who sign up at www.ZaOffice.com. Subsequent to the free-account period, ZaOffice will be available for a retail price of $9.95 per month.
"We believe tablet computers are the future of mobile computing and that ZaOffice delivers a secure, industry-first approach for users in the emerging post-PC era," said Stewart Irvine, Imogo president, founder and CEO. "Our 'tablet-centric' strategy is focused on providing mobile users with a cost-effective and powerful office-anywhere, -anytime platform to meet the mobile computing needs of both personal and business users."
ZaOffice, which is built on the VMware Zimbra platform, is accessible from any device regardless of operating system or platform, and it gives users a one-stop solution for e-mail, document processing and mobile phone activities. Given the growth in BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies in business, ZaOffice's primary platform is mobile devices, Irvine added.
ZaOffice also provides:
Web-based access; no downloads
Anytime mobile device access even in low bandwidth conditions
Quick, easy two-step application and registration process
Imogo has established a roadmap for ongoing upgrades and enhancements to ZaOffice and expects soon to announce interfaces optimized for touch screens and some exciting new productivity features, added Isaac Kendall, Imogo director of media and IT relations.
