July 17, 2014
Huddle today announced that it has been named by Gartner, Inc. in the July 2, 2014 "Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing" report.
Huddle's cloud collaboration service is used by enterprise and government organizations worldwide to securely store, access, share, sync and work on files with everyone they need to -- inside and outside of an organization's firewall. Huddle's customers include 80 percent of central UK government departments, the Office of the Secretary of Defence, Kia Motors, Panasonic, Grant Thornton, Centrica, Unilever, National Grid, and P&G.
Built to support the needs of today's workforce, Huddle's intelligent recommendation technology underpins the entire cloud collaboration service. Using learning algorithms linked to workers' actions in Huddle, the technology intelligently selects files that will be of most relevance to users, pushing them to their selected device for online and offline viewing. Replacing search, the intelligent recommendation engine ensures users have access to all of the files they need, as well as all of the metadata surrounding them, in context.
"We believe being recognized in Gartner's Magic Quadrant for Enterprise File Synchronization and Sharing (EFSS) is fantastic news for us as we approach EFSS from a different angle to traditional players," explains Alastair Mitchell, CEO, Huddle. "We feel that traditional EFSS tools are entirely focused on the individual. They're completely disconnected from collaboration and, like a filing cabinet structure, hide important content away. At Huddle, we believe that there's incredible potential beyond standalone EFSS and this should be just one feature of an enterprise collaboration system. Many enterprises are now realizing that relevant content needs to be accessed and worked on by the right people, at the right time. It's about being more productive, not having to search through a wealth of data and inboxes, nor working out what needs to be synced. Today's technology should do all of the searching and syncing for you and it's great to see our approach being recognized."
