Good releases next generation secure mobile collaboration suite

Good Technology has updated Good Collaboration Suite to deliver next-generation mobile business collaboration on iOS and Android devices. These enhancements bridge the gap between user requirements for a business-class experience across devices, and corporate IT’s robust mobile device management and security requirements. 

The Good Collaboration Suite includes the Good for Enterprise (GFE), Good Share, and Good Connect apps.

Business users require access to information quickly, on the move and on multiple devices. Mobile workers need to be able to quickly search, read, and compose emails; review, edit and share documents; manage contacts and schedule meetings with colleagues. Enhancements to the Good Collaboration Suite deliver the mobile business experience that users want, on multiple devices, while also offering seamless integration between apps and workflows.

Good for Enterprise 2.3 now delivers a superior, business-class calendar experience over the consumer apps found on iOS and Android devices. Features such as replying, forwarding, and adding attachments to calendar invites are unique to the Good for Enterprise application and enable business users to be more engaged and get more work done while on the road. The calendar user interface has also been redesigned to enable increased ease of use for visually impaired users.

New releases of Good Connect and Good Share are also now available. These releases deliver tight integration between Good for Enterprise, Good Connect and Good Share enabling rich and secure corporate file sharing workflows.

Mobile business users can now simply link to and open files from Good Share using their Good for Enterprise email or through Good Connect. In addition, Good Share 3.0 introduces more than 50 new features, such as automatically mapping drives on a Windows PC to display on all of the user’s devices.  Good Share also leverages the Good Dynamics Shared Services Framework, to deliver integrated, next-gen workflows with third-party ISVs. Good Connect 2.2 now supports Microsoft Lync 2013 and five additional languages, including Spanish, Italian, Dutch, French and German, making it ready out-of-the-box for global enterprises.

Good for Enterprise, Good Connect and Good Share can all be downloaded from the Apple App Store and Google Play.

In a recent Gartner report, analyst Monica Basso notes that mobile devices are enabling a new

generation of collaboration, and three drivers are rapidly boosting mobile collaboration strategies and investments in the enterprise: bring your own device (BYOD), personal cloud file sharing, and the increasing availability of mobile apps. She continues to point out that empowering mobile workers with mobile collaboration capabilities through smart devices, personal cloud sharing and mobile apps is a smart move for organizations to innovate in the workplace and stay competitive.
