Real-Time Collaboration for Microsoft SharePoint and Open Text Livelink

BOSTON—(BUSINESS WIRE)—July 2, 2007— Hyperwave and TechRP have entered immediate discussions to deliver presence awareness and real time collaboration to Microsoft SharePoint (MOSS) and Open Text Livelink platforms, powered by Hyperwave's eConferencing Suite. MOSS and Livelink are commonly recognized as Enterprise Content Management (ECM) platforms, but neither offers true collaborative services in its native form. The Hyperwave eConferencing Suite provides a full range of support for planned and ad hoc collaboration for document editingin MOSS and Livelink, including:

Scheduled or spontaneous collaborative sessions for a freely definable number of participants

-- Presence awareness of users in context with content - immediate status display of the author of a document and on demand collaboration access

-- Voice and video over IP (eliminating the need for traditional phone bridges)

-- Public and private text chat

-- White boarding, application sharing, desktop sharing, and partial monitor sharing

-- Session save and re-play features, including permission control for access to saved sessions

As a testimonial to its security features, the Hyperwave eConferencing Suite has been rigorously tested by the US Department of Defense and it is currently certified and in production on classified DoD networks.

Ideal support for collaboration

The Hyperwave eConferencing Suite can run as a stand alone application or as a fully integrated extension of the MOSS and Livelink ECM platforms. Users can see at a glance which colleagues are online and available. With a click of a mouse they can start an instant chat, voice, video, whiteboard, and application or desktop sharing session. The eConferencing Suite also offers a selection of tailored meeting templates. The eConferencing Suite actively contributes to improving information dissemination within a company, as all sessions can be saved and replayed required. Bo Warburton, GM and VP of ECM Solutions at TechRP said

"ECM solutions have focused on document control and not offered traditional content management technologies. Everybody wants to create and review documents as part of a team in real time, rather than e-mailing documents and enduring the stare-and-compare routine. We have looked at many technologies and the Hyperwave eConferencing Suite provides SharePoint and Livelink users with a best-of-breed experience."
