It’s been a very busy and exciting first six months of 2012 for the team at Novell! With our focus on building great products, delivering exceptional value and nurturing lasting relationships, we are proud of the work we have done so far this year. Coming on the heels of our successful launch of GroupWise 2012, we are thrilled to announce the latest version of Novell Vibe.
Now more than ever, mobility, social tools and the drive for better productivity are transforming the business landscape. To help employees be productive no matter where they are and to collaborate with their colleagues and partners, we have added some powerful new features to Novell Vibe 3.3.
Some of the most important feedback we received from our customers was their desire to simply and easily work with other users in real time on the business documents they use everyday. To meet this demand, Novell Vibe 3.3 includes the Novell Vibe Add-in for Microsoft Office. With it, users can open, modify and save Word, Excel and PowerPoint files directly from their Vibe workspace. The Add-in also helps people work on documents together: a live comment stream aids discussion and decisions about content; each user can edit a file and be notified when another person’s edits are available to preview and merge; and the group can see document history and compare versions.
To further enhance the collaborative experience – anytime, anywhere – Vibe 3.3 also features Vibe Desktop, which enables users to easily access and sync files offline. Users simply download Vibe Desktop and can then connect and sync any folders and files from their Novell Vibe system to their desktop. They can then access these files offline, with any changes automatically syncing between their desktop and Vibe once they are back online.
Check out the Novell Vibe website to see what else is new in Vibe 3.3-the latest of a series of rapid releases to deliver what our customers need. We hope our commitment to developing solutions that work the way our customers want to work results in even more success for your business!
