Huddle, the business collaboration application which uses LinkedIn social networking, is now available on the iPhone.
The Huddle iPhone app offers full access to document sharing, project tasks, discussions and whiteboards, as well as a complete view of the user's personalised dashboard. The Huddle app is available from the App Store. Huddle can be also accessed on other cell phones by using third-party applications such as Clustr.
Along with iPhone support, Huddle provides a Microsoft Office plug-in and supports web conferencing.
The Office plug-in allows users to access documents stored online directly from their desktop applications. They are able to save their desktop files directly into Huddle, view and edit files, add new versions, request approvals and send notifications without opening a browser window, Huddle said. Future plans for Huddle include a plug-in for SharePoint and further integration with other Microsoft products.
The web conferencing service integrates directly with Outlook and Google calendar. Huddle said users receive free conferencing minutes as a part of their monthly package. They can also upgrade to unlimited conferencing and multiple concurrent rooms at the lowest price currently available on the market.
"Enterprise collaboration doesn't have to be expensive to be secure and reliable. It doesn't require 20 different tools from five different vendors to deliver on its promise," said Alastair Mitchell, co-founder and CEO of Huddle.net. "These new features will help Huddle users get things done quicker, work better with people inside and outside their organisations, and without incurring a massive bill as a result."
