    IGLOO to Launch Community Solutions App for the BlackBerry PlayBook

    May 05, 2011 03:22 PM Eastern Daylight Time

    KITCHENER, Ontario & ORLANDO, Fla.--(EON: Enhanced Online News)--IGLOO Software, a leading provider of community solutions in the cloud, today announced the release of a suite of self-service collaboration templates for the PlayBookTM, at BlackBerry World in Orlando, FL. These templates will enable mobile professionals to easily create and manage an online business community, in order to access corporate knowledge and expertise, anytime, anywhere, right from their tablet.

    Communities, powered by IGLOO, allow business professionals to share files and capture knowledge, locate documents and expertise, communicate with colleagues and customers, build connections and work better together around projects. In the first iteration of the app, BlackBerry users will be able to start an online community by choosing from a variety of business templates, including social intranet, extranet, virtual boardroom and collaborative file sharing, right from within BlackBerry App World.

    At BlackBerry World this week, attendees have had the opportunity to experience the future of collaboration on the worlds first professional-grade tablet:

    * Online File Sharing: ability to organize, manage and share documents, such as PowerPoint files and .PDFs, right from a mobile device.
    * Internal Collaboration: team collaboration tools for managing projects, interacting with people and accessing information.
    * External Collaboration: information sharing and networking tools to build better relationships with customers, partners and suppliers.

    We launched our first native BlackBerry app over two years ago now and it is truly amazing to look back and see how far workplace collaboration has come, remarked Dan Latendre, CEO of IGLOO Software. The rise of tablets, combined with the ubiquitous access to broadband and the emergence of cloud computing, is particularly exciting as it is taking mobile computing to the next level, enabling us to create and consume content in a totally different way.
