Content Circles adds DocuShare Connector

May 7, 2009:Content Circles has announced the DocuShare Connector that allows for collaboration collaborate on projects with DocuShare users securely and in real time, working online or offline, regardless of firewall restrictions.

DocuShare’s flexible user model makes content management easy for licensed users within the firewalls of a company, as well as extranet and internet users through additional licenses or ‘guest’ access. With the Content Circles Connector, organizations can also collaborate with customers, partners and outside agencies without granting network access to the internalDocuShare system.

The Content Circles DocuShare Connector is applied by downloading the software to a computer. A licensed user of DocuShare creates a ‘Circle’ (workgroup) for collaboration, and invites others via email to join. This individual then pulls selected documents from theDocuShare repository and places them into the Circle – which will appear on the desktop of all Circle members’ computers for immediate access.

Content Circles tracks which documents have been edited and who has accessed them – creating a secure audit trail for users who are off-line or outside the company, as well asDocuShare users. Content Circles recognizes documents that were originated in DocuShare and enables users to synchronize the changes back to DocuShare for others to see.

“The Content Circles Connector enables our customers to conveniently work together on projects without logging into their company’s network,” said Brian Lincoln, senior product manager,DocuShare Business Unit, Xerox. “Coupling that with the Connector’s ability to tap into external team members outside the barriers of a firewall makes for an optimum collaborative work environment.”

Content Circle members utilizing the DocuShare Connector can also collaborate on content stored in Microsoft SharePoint, Google Docs, FTP servers, and network drives.

The creation and management of Circles requires a paid subscription to Content Circles. Those invited to a Circle can join for free.
