HyperOffice sees shift by large companies to online collaboration tools


ROCKVILLE, MD., 6 April. 2009 – As the recession worsens, HyperOffice is seeing larger companies shift to “software-as-as-a-service” online collaboration tools that HyperOffice ( originally designed for smaller companies.

“Freelancers outside our firewalls without access to our internal Outlook calendars or other project software are able to access the schedule through HyperOffice web-calendars & coordinate deadlines anywhere” said Brad Sims, Time Inc. Consumer Marketing.

Yamaha Commercial Audio is using HyperOffice “to share large files” said Steve Seable, product manager.

Other new users include Dell, Riverbed Technology, the State Bar of Nevada, Enel NA, YMCA, BlueCross Blue Shield, Porter Novelli, Sallie Mae, Juniper Networks & the City of Edmonton.

“HyperOffice helps us increase productivity by streamlining scheduling of meetings & enabling us to avoid conflicts,” said Pete Martinez, training specialist at Winn-Dixie.

“This trend with larger companies tracks with research,” said Farzin Arsanjani, president of HyperOffice.

For example, of approximately $64 billion spent on business & collaboration applications in 2008, research firm Gartner estimates that 10%, or $6.4 billion, was spent on hosted web-applications.

Research firm IDC expects subscription software spending to grow at a compounded 18% a year, to $19.8 billion, by 2012. IDC expects that the recession would prompt more users to choose software-as-a-service over on-premises applications. It also forecast that nearly 45% of U.S. companies will spend about one-fourth of their IT budgets on SaaS by 2010 – & projects that hosted software can bring cost savings of 25-60% if maintenance & IT staff are factored in.

Analyst Amy Wohl, who has tracked “Cloud-based software” since the 1990s writes, (“the recession is a veiled blessing for the SaaS market, offering budget-pressured companies a way to obtain software without having to pay for implementation & skilled employees. The economies of SaaS will be very appealing in these tight times. Count on more SaaS.”
