Collaboration start-up Huddle has launched a new version of its project management and file sharing platform with a host of new social features.
The latest version, simply described as New Huddle, allows business users to discuss files while they are viewing them.
According to Huddle, users will be able to track views, file changes, colleagues' comments, discussions and approvals, whether they were made online, on the desktop, via mobile apps or email.
One of the new social features is an activity stream, which will give users visibility of all actions within their team and around specific content. Users can further interact with each other, both inside and outside of the firewall, with new "@" mentions and a ‘Share' button.
"New Huddle is the first enterprise tool that brings together content, conversation and enterprise-level security, giving workers a full 360-degree view of information that is important to them," said Huddle chief executive Alastair Mitchell.
"Discussions are focused on specific content, knowledge is transmitted to the people that need it and the enterprise data store is enriched and available for everyone in the enterprise ecosystem."
Mitchell added that New Huddle will provide IT with audit trails of all collaboration activity for enterprise compliance purposes.
The UK start-up said that while the new version of Huddle was officially launched today, the company claimed it has already been rolled out in beta to customers, including 80 per cent of the Fortune 500 and 80 per cent of central UK government departments.
The news follows the launch of the Huddle's Unlimited Enterprise tool, which allows business users to add contacts to their Huddle accounts free of charge so they can view, comment and provide feedback on content.
