Workshare delivers SharePoint Outlook integration

Workshare promises faster access to SharePoint documents from Microsoft Office and Outlook with the latest release of its Point product.

Workshare Point integrates with SharePoint and Office to allow users to easily:
* drag and drop email attachments into SharePoint;
* preview email messages stored in SharePoint from within Outlook;
* file emails on Send with one click;
* select multiple emails to file or delete; and
* track and manage incoming email more efficiently with suggestive filing.

Workshare says Point is now 24% faster when searching a SharePoint document library, even when it contains thousands of documents. The time it takes to open a document located on SharePoint has also been reduced by up to 45%. Saving documents directly into SharePoint is also much faster with up to 35% in performance improvements.

In addition to SharePoint 2010, Workshare Point also works with Microsoft SharePoint Foundation 2010 and supports users that want to connect to a SharePoint Online as part of Microsoft's cloud-based Office 365 offering.

Workshare Point can access SharePoint Online to provide smaller organisations or departments a way to access secure cloud-based collaboration from their familiar work environment.
