Managed mobile access to documents, data and process – Point.io
The Point.io platform allows organisations to quickly develop and deliver mobile functionality and applications by connecting documents, data and processes through a consistent interface.
The solution has been specifically designed for mobile use, meaning applications that need to be available on any device can be developed in days and not weeks.
Point.io enables firms to retain the security and management features of their corporate IT systems, whilst liberating the data that’s stored within them. Client relationship, document management, human resource and knowledge management solutions can all be mobilised quickly and easily.
Multiple content sources can be brought together under one interface without the need for development, and business rules can be applied to meet the information management needs of the firm.
Law firms wanting to maintain control of their documents through their enterprise content management (ECM) systems, whilst taking advantage of Citrix ShareFile, can now do so using Point.io.
Point.io allows users to access the documents stored within their ECM system from any mobile device, whilst maintaining the firm’s security restrictions. Through a single interface, users can browse, modify and update documents as well as download them and work offline.
Point.io connects to over a dozen industry-leading storage solutions such as Dropbox, Box, HP iManage, Salesforce and SharePoint, and new connectors are being developed each month.This allows Point.io to provide the user with access to all their files through a single secure interface.
Documents can be synchronised between the ECM system and ShareFile at folder, matter or document level, or via configurable business rules, (such as most recently used documents, my open matters etc), using a simple to use web application
Law firms need to embrace technology to add business value, develop deeper relationships with their clients and improve operational efficiency. Key to this is the ability to connect processes, documents and data from discrete systems and deliver them securely to an increasingly mobile workforce. The Point.io solution provides:
- Secure, managed access to the documents, data and processes on any device, at any time, in any location.
- A managed transition towards a ‘Bring Your Own Device’ (BYOD) mobility strategy. Citrix ShareFile provides a secure, managed file synchronisation system, whilst Point.io maintains the integrity of existing enterprise systems.
- IT departments can exploit the pre-built, integrated and hosted services to build workflows and applications quickly, without the need for custom built code, data warehouses or ongoing maintenance.
This all means that value adding services can be delivered to the firm quickly in a scalable, maintainable way.
