Duesseldorf’s dal33t GmbH, developer of the proven File Sync & Share solution PowerFolder, has entered into a partner agreement with the British specialist for online document processing, Collabora. This will give PowerFolder users another way – in addition to OnlyOffice – to work online on their documents, presentations and spreadsheets.

Dusseldorf / Cambridge, December 2018 – From the spring of 2016, PowerFolder – the first German Sync & Share solution – offered an integrated online document processing system with OnlyOffice. With the conclusion of a partner agreement with the British developer Collabora, PowerFolder users will soon be able to choose whether to edit their documents, presentations and spreadsheets with OnlyOffice or with Collabora Online. The technical implementation of the integration of Collabora Online into PowerFolder is currently racing ahead.


Safe and comfortable working with Collabora Online

With Collabora Online, documents can be edited directly in the cloud, without the cumbersome effort of having to download them or an Office program having to be started. Collabora Online runs with all current browsers, without any need for additional plugins. It works with all common office formats, such as odt / docx / doc, ods / xlsx / xls or odp / pptx / ppt and many more. The documents can be edited online, in real time, by several users, simultaneously, and provided with comments, eliminating the hassle of sending them back and forth by email. The open-source software Collabora Online – which was created at the end of 2016 from the LibreOffice Online – can be used both in the cloud, as well as, if desired, also on-site, installed on its own local servers and thereby optimally integrated into existing structures. The user interface can be also customised. Announcing the cooperation,

PowerFolder CEO Christian Sprajc said, “I am pleased that, with Collabora, we can offer another powerful online document processing system. Thanks to its transparent product and partner strategy, Collabora Online is also a secure, reliable solution for the longer term.” And Michael Meeks, General Manager of Collabora adds: “We love to work with bright partners who have a great vision for their technology. It is good to collaborate with those who value privacy, to provide a joint support offering that is easy to buy, install and use.”
