RALEIGH, N.C., May 25, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- KnowledgeTree, a provider of cloud-based document management solutions, today announced KnowledgeTree for Android Tablet and KnowledgeTree for Android Phone (http://landing.knowledgetree.com/knowledgetree-version-2-launch/). The new Android mobile applications, designed specifically for the mobile content and collaboration needs of mid-sized companies, help accountants, lawyers, and other business professionals organize, edit, synch and manage documents and processes from wherever they are.
KnowledgeTree today also announced FolderSync, a new tool that powers the two-way synchronization of documents between a user's local desktop and the KnowledgeTree cloud-based vault. Now, business professionals can always access the latest versions of documents, whether they are in their main or home office, at a client meeting, a court hearing or on the road while disconnected from the Internet. The new functionality not only ensures compliance but also removes versioning chaos.
"Mid-market organizations have specific document management needs not addressed by current tools," said Jason Verge, Tier 1 Research analyst. "They want a cost-effective and easy-to-use product that goes beyond file sharing to address business requirements like mobile access and document lifecycle management, including workflows. We're seeing increased popularity in newer software-as-a-service (SaaS) offerings designed specifically for small-to-midsized businesses that provide an alternative to traditional content management systems."
"American Institutes for Research is one of the largest behavioral and social science research organizations in the world. In particular, the Educational Assessment Division offers a full range of testing services, including test development, online and paper-based services, and scoring and reporting. Thus it yields a high volume of educational materials, software documents and reports. We need to ensure that this knowledge is readily accessible by our team – something that simple file sharing can't provide," said Selina Tolosa, Director of Assessment Software and Services at American Institutes for Research. "KnowledgeTree makes document management easy and convenient. Its cloud-based model simplifies the process of organizing, storing, and retrieving these documents. And for an organization like ours, the ability to access documents securely from anywhere is advantageous."
KnowledgeTree's new functionalities for the mid-market customer in finance, law, and other professions include:
Access Anywhere: With KnowledgeTree's mobile apps, business users are instantly connected to documents stored in their secure KnowledgeTree vault. Advanced business process tools ensure documents stay controlled through document alerts, access controls, and a secure vault.
Always Current: Business documents are always changing and it's critical to have the latest versions. KnowledgeTree allows users to select groups of documents to instantly synchronize with their cloud-based vault, and changes made offline can be easily synched with the cloud to avoid versioning issues.
Control Simplified: KnowledgeTree puts users back in control of their documents with the ability to easily add and edit descriptions, group documents, create alerts, and build approval processes. Now, managing business assets is streamlined – helping you better control thousands of documents.
"With the addition of FolderSync and our mobile applications, version control headaches and document chaos are relegated to history," said Daniel Chalef, KnowledgeTree CEO. "Now CFOs, legal counsels, attorneys, accountants, and other business professionals have a complete suite of document management tools, which means they always are on the same page wherever they are, ultimately making them more productive."
