Central Desktop unveils 2.0 upgrade
Central Desktop on Monday unveiled a comprehensive 2.0 upgrade to its hosted collaboration suite with a redesigned user interface that is more intuitive and easier to use. Founded in 2005, Central Desktop makes a complete software-as-a-service (SaaS) product that it calls a "social technology platform." In a nutshell, Central Desktop merges traditional tools such as WYSIWYG editing, document management with search, discussion threads, together with wiki-based and project-centric solutions.
New features in Central Desktop 2.0 include an online file viewer that supports more than 200 different file types--including PDF, CAD and Adobe Photoshop files, improved Wiki navigation. A single click from within Central Desktop will also convert any file types into a downloadable PDF document.
The privately held company has 30 employees, and says its goal is to allow more efficient communication and collaboration between business teams. According to PC World, clients include Nielsen, CBS, The Ritz Carlton, Netflix, Harvard University and DirecTV.
