To see some of these features in action
Outlook Cross platform - SmartCloud Connect is available for different clients: Outlook-rich clients (for Windows or Mac), Outlook Web App (through browsers) or OWA for devices, so people can choose their device and benefit from the integration of email and enterprise system, no matter which platform they are on.
Easy to deploy - Users can add SmartCloud Connect themselves once and then use it from any device connected to his Office365 account. They don’t need to install a custom application to get corporate data in their email. They simply open an email and automatically get all recent and up-to-date context dependent information from the corporate system.
Available from anywhere - Users can use a familiar email program on their own device and still access critical enterprise data on the go. Even when they're out of the office, they can work as productively as if they were connected to enterprise applications directly.
Easy to adopt - Because SmartCloud Connect is intuitive and simple to use, employees don’t need to spend much time learning new software or getting trained.
Reliable - SmartCloud Connect is flexible, scalable and most importantly, reliable. Because it utilizes the Microsoft Azure cloud platform, our customers get higher reliability than locally hosted applications.
Easy to extend - SmartCloud Connect is designed so that customization can be managed by metadata from the corporate system side. Because each business works differently, it’s extremely important to have the ability to customize a solution for company (or user) needs. Hard-coded mail apps don’t have near the same flexibility.
Seamless integration - With one click, SmartCloud Connect enables a user to open an email leveraging the full power of the enterprise application.
Lower IT costs - With a simple installation process and automatic upgrade capabilities, IT departments can significantly reduce costs on managing email software and devote staff to other priorities.
Increased user adoption – Because employees can use business software in a familiar email environment, both adoption and their performance increase.
