OnePlaceMail launches Free Express edition for SharePoint integration

Scinaptic has added new support for Office 365 and private cloud environments to the latest release of OnePlaceMail, its SharePoint/Office/Outlook integration solution, which is also available in a free Express edition for the first time.

With OnePlaceMail Release 6, the full SharePoint/Office 365 experience is provided from within the Outlook interface, including the ability to search SharePoint content from Outlook.

OnePlaceMail R6 provides a straight forward interface to saving and accessing content with metadata to SharePoint and Office 365  from within Outlook, Windows File Explorer and Microsoft Office. The free Express edition includes the same Outlook and Windows File Explorer functionality.

In addition to support for traditional on-premise SharePoint 2007 and 2010 environments, OnePlaceMail Release 6 adds new support for hybrid On-Premise/Cloud environments.

Support for ‘Recent Locations’ has been added to help streamline saving to SharePoint, plus the ability to search SharePoint/Office 365 from within Outlook.

OnePlaceMail R6 is now available as an easy, client-only installation (no server required) with a product tour wizard and refreshed user interface.

Golder Associates, a global company providing consulting, design, and construction services from 160 offices worldwide and with nearly 7800 employees, has turned to OnePlaceMail to encourage adoption of its SharePoint project workspace.

“When we trialled OnePlaceMail it was an immediate fit, as the drag and drop features embedded directly into Outlook and provides staff with an efficient and easy to use tool for the management and migration of project information into the specified SharePoint libraries,” said program manager Greg Stimson.

“The success of our OnePlaceMail adoption can be measured by the amount of emails and attachments brought into the project workspace – and this is growing daily,”.

The ability to save critical email into the project workspace was identified as an essential element in terms of information management and collaboration; however, it was the need to make it easy for the user to save emails and automatically capture email related metadata direct from Outlook that led to OnePlaceMail.

Utilizing their intranet, with SharePoint as the principal platform, Project Managers create ‘project workspaces’ for all project related documentation - enabling better collaboration and knowledge sharing across the many projects which Golder Associates is managing around the world.

“With two major releases in 18 months it is evident that Scinaptic have a highly concentrated development schedule for OnePlaceMail which delivers even more benefits to us as users”.

OnePlaceMail Release 6 is being launched at the SharePoint 2011 Conference in Anaheim but a pre-release of the Express Edition (Free offering) is available to use now and can accessed from:
