Intranets.com Draws Curtain on New Document Management Features

Ever seeking to make data dissemination throughout enterprises more
efficient, Woburn, Mass.’s Intranets.com Monday unveiled the first
major enhancement to its subscription service since migrating to an all-paid
model in July.


The new features include Web Folders, an update to the document library, a
check-in/check-out editing feature, an updated polling application and an
application management tool for more customization.


Web Folders allows users to access their intranet documents and move, copy,
rename and change their files from within local applications, as though the
files sat in a local directory. Intranets.com users can use Web Folders to
add files to their portal, back up their documents library, and open files
for editing on their site.


Also, the intranet’s Application Manager interface provides Intranets.com
administrators with advanced customization options because they may turn off
applications that are not applicable to the work group. The
check-in/check-out tool, another brand new feature, allows groups to
collaborate and avoid “dueling edits,” which disturb the workflow.


“We have dedicated our energy and resources to constantly improving our
intranet applications based on feedback from our customers and partners,”
said Karen Leavitt, vice president of product marketing at Intranets.com.
“Our users can continue to expect quarterly application updates to our
subscription-based service as we further improve and enhance our offering.”


In addition to the new features, Intranets.com offers small and medium-sized
businesses and groups a document sharing library, a contact database, a
group calendar, discussion groups, a task manager, an expense report
application and 100MB of storage. SSL encryption and additional storage
space are also available as a la carte options.


Pricing for the Intranets.com service, which used to be free, starts at
$19.95 per month for up to four members, plus $5.95 per month for each
additional member.
