SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 12/10/13 -- Huddle today unveiled Huddle Note and its powerful new iOS application, enabling workers to quickly and simply create content in the cloud via any device, share it with teams and work on it with colleagues. Responding to the demands of an increasingly mobile workforce, Huddle Note ensures that people no longer have to use feature-heavy legacy applications to share ideas with colleagues. All creating, editing, storing, sharing and collaboration on content can now take place seamlessly in Huddle's secure cloud.
"We're now seeing a major shift in the way people work. Today's workplace is no longer a fixed desk in an office, but wherever you decide to work from -- public transport, home, or a remote office," explains Alastair Mitchell, CEO, Huddle. "People don't want to waste time skipping between apps, battling with legacy word processors, and then uploading documents to the cloud to share them with co-workers -- especially when they're quick notes such as brainstorm ideas and meeting minutes. With Huddle Note, we're adding an easy-to-use and intuitive way to capture content in Huddle, giving people a simpler, faster, mobile alternative to Microsoft Office and other bloated legacy offerings. Everything can now take place in one secure environment via any device. From document creation and editing through to the feedback and approval stage, Huddle Note helps people to get their jobs done faster. It's a leap forward from Jurassic systems such as SharePoint, which still doesn't provide sufficient support for a mobile workforce."
Available today, Huddle Note is already being used by hundreds of customers such as Pearson Chicago, Almond Board of California, Barnardo's, GreenPages, and NHS Advancing Quality.
Huddle Note's key features include:

"Mobile software solutions greatly enhance the value of team collaboration by ensuring that the right people can always be included in business decisions when they need to be made -- from anywhere and at any time," according to Vanessa Thompson, Research Manager, Enterprise Social Networks and Collaborative Technologies at IDC. "Employees need the real time connectivity that mobile devices offer, but they also need intelligent filtering and they need to have apps that are contextually aware to enable efficiency in business decision making."
What our customers are saying about Huddle Note
"Being able to create notes and memos directly in our Huddle workspaces using Huddle Note should be a huge time saver. No longer having to go back and forth between applications to create and save documents and then upload them to the cloud should increase efficiency and make life a little easier for our teams." -- Melissa Mautz, Consultant for Almond Board of California
"We've found Huddle Note to be of most use when it comes to replacing email chains. If we have an email that contains information we want everyone to have access to, the best place to save the content is in Huddle for secure central review and reference. Instead of having to copy the content into a Microsoft Word file and then upload the document into Huddle, we can now just copy and paste the information into a Huddle Note and instantly share it with others, making the process much more efficient and saving our users' time." -- Lindsay Kirby, Communications Lead, NHS Advancing Quality
"Barnardo's needed a cloud based service that would enable volunteers to store sensitive information. The service needed to be absolutely secure, which was of paramount importance to Barnardo's, and it needed to be simple and straightforward for volunteers to use. Huddle Note provides exactly that -- a secure and intuitive way of recording notes from meetings." -- Tom Rees, Assistant Director of Information Services at Barnardo's
