HELIOS releases Document Hub for Android

HELIOS Document Hub provides remote document access and file synchronization to mobile users. Businesses can conveniently and securely share server files to mobile users. Document previews and Spotlight search make it quick and easy to find desired files.

Hannover, Germany, December 1, 2016 – HELIOS Software today released the HELIOS Document Hub 2.0 app for Android users. Document Hub enables companies to securely share intranet file server volumes to mobile users. Document Hub for Android offers the same capabilities and ease of use that are already enjoyed by users of the iOS version of Document Hub 2.0 for iPad/iPhone. Document Hub for Android has been developed from scratch to ensure that intuitive operation on Android devices is guaranteed, and to support all major Android versions (4.1 Jelly Bean - 7.1 Nougat).

HELIOS Document Hub is a mobile app that connects to the HELIOS WebShare web portal running on a company’s file server. With Document Hub, remote users can browse and preview server files. Server files can quickly be found via the Spotlight search system, browsed in list mode, or via the convenient gallery view with zoomable document previews. Documents can be downloaded to the Document Hub app for offline use, and opened in other applications. Photos and documents created or edited on the mobile device can be uploaded to the server.  File synchronization copies specified server files and folders to Document Hub for offline use.

WebShare runs on a company’s file server to enable it as a “private cloud” web portal. Multi-user support is built-in by design, server file permissions are enforced, and user authentication is fully compatible with enterprise directory services.

“Document Hub provides enterprise grade file sharing and file syncing,” notes Helmut Tschemernjak, CEO of HELIOS, “so companies can enable mobile users to securely and conveniently access documents on their company file server. In addition, it provides a more versatile and secure alternative to Dropbox and similar products, since company data is not hosted on third party servers.”

Key benefits include:

  • Work offline with server documents
  • Quickly access server files via Spotlight search
  • Present documents, images, movies
  • Automatic file synchronization brings remote devices up to date
  • Browse, preview, transfer files from/to intranet server volumes
  • Exchange documents with other apps
  • Gallery view and zoomable previews (server generated)
  • Enterprise grade security – enforces intranet users and permissions

It is easy to try out Document Hub. Android users can download Document Hub from the Google Play store on their Android device. iOS users can download the HELIOS Document Hub app in the Apple App Store. In either case, search for “HELIOS Document Hub”. Pre-configured demo server accounts allow test driving the application using a HELIOS test server.

HELIOS WebShare and Document Hub are ideal for businesses of any size. Complete product details can be found on the website. Watch the HELIOS Document Hub for Android videos for a quick overview, and an in-depth tour.
