Collaboration startup Huddle has released a new collaboration service, removing the need for files to be saved locally.
The Connected Desktop integrates users' desktop applications with Huddle's content collaboration service to enable workplaces to store and edit files on Huddle's cloud service.
Huddle said the service would increase productivity and team collaboration for users regardless of their location and device.
The service also moves content from individual inboxes to Huddle's email service. Huddle said this would save users time on looking for attachments and comments in inboxes.
Other features include an easy-to-use interface and a Huddle Viewer that enables all images and pictures to be viewed in the cloud.
Alaister Mitchell, CEO at Huddle, said: "The office of the future is no longer a physical environment - with a desk, chair and workstation tied to the corporate network - it's a secure virtual environment that is accessible from anywhere via whatever device people wish to use.
"We now have a suite of desktop productivity tools that connect the applications you use, the content you create and the people you work with seamlessly to the cloud from any device."
