14 May 2010 Singapore - Voiceroute Pte Ltd today announced the launch of Socialwok Outlook Social Connector for Office Outlook 2010, 2007, 2003. Microsoft Office business users can use their work email accounts to create their organization's private social network to share ideas, emails, files, Office documents like Microsoft Word, Google Docs and other rich media using status updates. With the Socialwok Outlook Social Connector, Microsoft Office users can from inside Microsoft Outlook see the latest activity of their co-workers in the office as well as view what files and emails have been previously shared. Microsoft Office users can also access the Socialwok user profiles of their co-workers from the Microsoft Outlook address book.
"Socialwok is committed to bringing the power of social networking technologies like passive sharing to small and medium-size businesses (SMBs). There are many SMBs on the Microsoft Office platform already using Microsoft Outlook for everyday messaging. As such, it is a logical choice for us to integrate with Microsoft Outlook 2010 especially since this version of Outlook includes native support for social networking. We are excited about bringing business social sharing and collaboration to Outlook", says Ming Yong, Socialwok CEO.
"This Socialwok Outlook Social Connector for Microsoft Outlook marks only the very first step in what we plan to do with the Microsoft Office platform both on the desktop as well as in the cloud. Microsoft Office 2010 also includes the release of Microsoft Office Web Apps. We see Microsoft becoming a dominant player in the cloud based Office Productivity space. By working closely with Microsoft, my company aims to realize our vision of being the largest business social collaboration network for cloud based office productivity in the world.", says Ming Yong, Socialwok CEO.
"We are very excited to see Voiceroute, a BizSpark Startup, create the Socialwok Outlook Social Connector for Office 2010," adds Haresh Khoobchandani, Senior Director, Business Marketing Organization for Microsoft Singapore. "Using Microsoft's suite of developer tools like Microsoft Visual Studio and Outlook Social Connector, software vendors like Voiceroute are helping us build a rich ecosystem of third-party applications that work seamlessly with Office 2010. Office Web Apps is a key platform for taking the work done on Office by 500 million around the world into the cloud. Engaging and encouraging vendors like Voiceroute to develop cloud-based social collaboration services that integrate with Office 2010 is an excellent demonstration of our continued commitment to bring the benefits of cloud computing to the masses across the browser, the phone or the desktop."
