Collaboration Leader Offers Next Generation of Structured Mobile and Desktop Collaboration in the Enterprise


Building on its long-standing relationship with Microsoft, mobile collaboration leader harmon.ie today launched harmon.ie 2016. The enhanced solution adds support for Office 2016, extending the enterprise-focused functionality of Microsoft’s productivity suite with critical capabilities for structured collaboration.

“As a long standing Microsoft partner, harmon.ie was among the first add-ins to appear in the Office store on day one,” said Jeremy Thake, senior technical product manager at Microsoft. “So, we are excited to now see harmon.ie take advantage of exciting new Office 2016 capabilities to increase users’ productivity across every platform on which people work, including Windows, Mac, the Web and a host of mobile devices.”

Microsoft added new ad hoc collaboration functionality to Office 2016, enabling Office 365 business customers to now build small work teams quickly and efficiently. Updates in Office 2016 include streamlined file storage, synchronization, and sharing, real-time document collaboration on the desktop and access to Office 365 Groups.

“Office 2016 highlights Microsoft’s transformation into the cloud collaboration leader not just for large enterprises, but for teams of any size,“ noted Yaacov Cohen, CEO of harmon.ie. “As Office 2016 focuses on the ad hoc collaboration needed for smaller and more temporary collaboration scenarios, harmon.ie is proud to offer an Office 365/SharePoint-based solution that takes structured collaboration – which is essential for enterprise business initiatives – to the next level.”

harmon.ie 2016 allows organizations to enable full-scale collaboration, bridging Office 2016’s new ad hoc features with enterprise-grade structured collaboration tools like Office 365, Skype for Business and Yammer. Empowering the digital workforce, harmon.ie 2016 offers:

  • A single-screen experience for structured collaboration across desktop and mobile devices. With the addition of Mac support, harmon.ie 2016 offers instant access to Office 365, SharePoint, OneDrive for Business and Yammer across all major operating systems.

  • The ability to use SharePoint as a single central repository for emails and documents. Users can drag emails from Outlook 2016 directly into the harmon.ie SharePoint sidebar, storing them as full-fledged documents and saving email headers such as 'To,' 'From,' 'Subject' and 'Received' as SharePoint metadata.

  • Full metadata support for SharePoint Team sites on mobile and desktop. This metadata allows SharePoint Online or on-premises to act as the basis for key business initiatives like managing records, clients, cases, projects and more.

  • Secure offline mobile access to documents, emails, tasks, calendars, announcements, contacts and wikis. harmon.ie 2016 provides secure mobile access to Office 2016 and Office 365 through leading mobile device management partnerships with Citrix, Good, BlackBerry, MobileIron, Samsung KNOX and OpenPeak.
