Infosquare Updates Intranet Document Sharing App

Intranet developer Infosquare Corp.Wednesday released version OpenShare 2.0, an intranet and extranet publishing tool.

OpenShare is a Web-based, open platform application designed to allow users to share data using existing office productivity tools while providing Webmasters with administrative control over style, security and access.

The program converts documents to HTML and creates a uniform page based on predefined or customizable templates. Files are transferred to the Web server in the proper location and the intranet map, links, security settings and search engine are updated.

The program is designed for non-technical users who may not be used to network applications, said Matteo Cardano, Infosquare's chief operating officer.

"Until now, giving employees a way to publish information quickly and easily on the intranet/extranet was technically challenging and expensive," Cardano said. "OpenShare helps IT relieve the backlog many Web administrators encounter as the information to be posted on the intranet exceeds the resources available."

OpenShare 2.0 is currently available from the vendor's Web site. Pricing starts at $995 for the small-business edition.
