ZoooS LLC previewed ZoooS Office, a web-based office suite that puts OpenOffice.org 3.0 in a browser, targeting enterprise, SMB, and individual users alike with a blend of software-as-a-service (SaaS) and desktop advantages.
ZoooS revealed its suite at this week’s Office 2.0 Conference 2008 Launchpad event, demonstrating that ZoooS Office offers the anywhere, any device access, collaboration, and zero-maintenance benefits of SaaS combined with the security, offline support, look and feel, and application performance of a desktop suite. The Office 2.0 Conference runs September 3-5, at the St. Regis Hotel in San Francisco.
“ZoooS Office looks exactly like OpenOffice.org 3.0, using the same icons, dialogs, and help text — everything to eliminate the learning curve,” said Hisham El-Emam, CEO of ZoooS LLC. “Many companies want to access their files from any location and any device, but they don’t want to store confidential files in the cloud. Companies can run ZoooS Office locally to maintain complete control over their files while still providing local and remote access from PCs, laptops, mobile devices, and even game consoles.”
ZoooS Office comprises ZoooS Write, ZoooS Spreadsheet, ZoooS Presentation, ZoooS Draw, and the ZoooS database. For each application, ZoooS provides a feature set that matches 80 percent of the application’s OpenOffice.org 3.0 counterpart to effectively compete with desktop office suites — OpenOffice.org as well as Star Office and Microsoft Office.
