More than 200 enterprises, including Citi, DuPont and BAE Systems, purchased harmon.ie for the enterprise in 2012, in order to help their business users improve productivity on the platforms they already own, such as SharePoint from their email client, iPads and iPhones.
“harmon.ie has a social business vision which is platform-independent across Microsoft, IBM and Google platforms,” said Yaacov Cohen, co-founder and social CEO of harmon.ie. “This new approach is already delivering unprecedented business flexibility to enterprises as they can pick and choose collaboration offerings from different vendors, yet deliver a consistent user experience across these competing platforms. Our stellar annual results represent a strong validation of our corporate vision.”
As of the end of 2012, 1.3 million enterprise users have subscribed to the harmon.ie social business vision and access SharePoint and Google Docs from Outlook, Notes, iPhones and iPads.
