Soonr Workplace Praised by Leading Analyst Firm
CAMPBELL, Calif. --(Business Wire)--
a leading provider of secure cloud-based mobile content management for
business, today announced that Soonr Workplace, topped many end-user and
IT-Administrator categories in a business-oriented "Online File Sharing
and Collaboration Solution (OFS (News - Alert)) Test Drive" conducted by Enterprise
Strategy Group (ESG), an integrated IT research, analysis, and strategy
firm world-renowned for providing actionable insight and intelligence to
the global IT community.
The assessment appeared in an "October 2012 Online File Sharing and
Collaboration Test Drive." ESG evaluated and compared 13 cloud-based
online file sharing (OFS) services offering similar features, and ranks
Soonr Workplace at the top of the list in a number of areas. With more
than 125,000 current business users, Soonr is one of the fastest growing
companies in the sector. "Our testers sometimes used words such as
'perfect' and 'love it' when evaluating this product-words not often
otherwise heard from these testers who have examined and assessed so
many OFS products."
The Test Drive was divided into IT Administrator functions and End-Users
functions. "Soonr Workplace excelled in many areas of the…Test Drive. It
delivers several advanced features while providing an experience for
administrators and end-users that is…simple and intuitive,"
Some of the highest praise was given by testers for Workplace's mobile
"…testers encountered no problems installing Soonr's mobile app on their
mobile devices, and opening and reading files was just as smooth for
them. In fact, Soonr received the highest mobile device use rating of
all solutions tested. End-user testers were especially happy with what
they described as the "perfect" endering of many types of files on
their devices, and they reported that they 'loved' having an integrated
way to edit them. They used the mobile app to perform tasks that
included adding a slide to a presentation, then quickly propagating that
new file to their synch folders on the website-doing it all without
having to launch any third-party apps."
"Our testers were extremely impressed that files stored in Soonr can be
created, synched, and edited right from the Soonr mobile app (instead of
downloading other apps to do the editing), remarking that any workers
who travel will probably love Soonr Scribble, a way to annotate and
comment on existing documents and save them as PDFs for collaboration."
Evaluators expressed admiration for the ease of synching that Workplace
"Our testers found that the Soonr synch agent delivers more data about
users and their devices to an IT administrator than was the case with
any other OFS product tested. The Soonr Workplace synch agent works
elegantly, easily managing the synching of multiple and large files…
Testers appreciated Soonr's fast synch performance, even for files as
large as 100MB…"
The report also praised the level of data and document security built in
to Soonr Workplace:
"Soonr Workplace stands out with its file-locking capability to prevent
version conflicts, its remote wipe capability to enhance security, its
integrated editing function to assist mobile device users, and its
ability to search for text within files."
"The entire Soonr team is extremely grateful to Enterprise Strategy
Group for including us in this Test Drive and providing this valuable
unbiased assessment of all the business oriented Online File Sharing
services on the market. This has given Soonr the chance to go
head-to-head with some of our toughest competitors," said Martin
Frid-Nielsen, founder and CEO of Soonr. "We are delighted by the
results, and very pleased with many of the insightful feedback offered
by the individual testers."
