Zimbra announced that it has won Intranet Journal's Product of the Year Award in the Document Management/Collaboration category. Zimbra Collaboration Suite beat Microsoft SharePoint and Lotus Notes and Domino in a crowded field of market leaders.
"Zimbra was in a tight race with Microsoft SharePoint, but ultimately proved more popular with Intranet Journal voters in the Document Management category," said Tom Dunlap, managing editor of Intranet Journal. "The biggest improvement with Zimbra's latest release is the addition of Documents, which lets you create shared docs directly within Zimbra, documents than can be read and edited by others in your company."
The Zimbra Collaboration Suite (ZCS) is an open source collaboration solution that reduces the cost and complexity of collaboration, and changes the way users and administrators interact with their e-mail, calendaring, and document management applications. Last month, ZCS 4.5 was released with an improved Ajax Administrative Interface, expanded support of Zimbra Mobile, and support for growing Ubuntu and Mandriva Linux distributions. Zimbra has seen rapid adoption since its launch in October 2005, with more than six million paid mailboxes globally, serving 1,300 customers through onsite deployments and its hosted partner program.
"We are honored that the readers of Intranet Journal have selected Zimbra as the best solution for document management and collaboration," said Satish Dharmaraj, co-founder and CEO of Zimbra. "Users are tired of communication silos and are demanding integrated e-mail, document management, and other systems. Zimbra is committed to innovation that will deliver such a rich, consistent user experience."
Winners of the IntranetJournal.com 2007 Product of the Year Awards are chosen by the users of Jupitermedia's IntranetJournal.com, a leading online information resource designed specifically for Internet and IT professionals dedicated to building the corporate enterprise.
