The corrected release reads:

SOONR ANNOUNCES POWERFUL NEW CAPABILITIES FOR SOONR WORKPLACE

Smart File Locking, document scan capability, HD video streaming, full iWorks compatibility, QR code support and more added to industry-leading business online file sharing collaboration service

Soonr, a leading provider of Secure Online File Sharing and Collaboration services for business, today announced several powerful new features for Soonr Workplace, including Smart File Locking, document scanning, Full-resolution video playback on iPad, iWorks Rendering Support, and the ability to generate and share business content embedded onto QR codes.

Soonr Workplace helps business customers gain a competitive advantage by increasing their mobile productivity and providing access to business content from any device, anywhere. Soonr Workplace balances the ease of use desired by end-users to access and work securely with business content alongside the administrative control and oversight required by IT.

“It’s great to be back at Macworld this year to unveil the evolution of Soonr Workplace,” said Martin Frid-Nielsen, founder and CEO of Soonr. “Soonr continues to improve the mobile business experience on Apple devices with innovative features like Smart File Locking that automatically locks your Microsoft office documents when changes are being made and subsequently unlocks the documents when they are closed. We now enable document scanning and secure access to business content through QR codes that help mobile workers accomplish tasks that used to require a trip to the office.”

New features in Soonr Workplace

Smart File Locking: Microsoft Office files are automatically locked when a user begins editing files locally, preventing conflicting versions of a single file from being generated by other Team Members. Similarly documents are unlocked when the documents are closed from within Microsoft Office.

Document Scan: Soonr Workplace now enables high-quality document scanning. Upon activation, Soonr’s document scanning leverages a mobile device’s camera to capture the document image which is then automatically uploaded to the cloud where it can be stored as a multi-page PDF and shared with Team Members who have access to the project.

Full-resolution video playback on iPad: All iOS compatible video files, including HD formats, are progressively downloaded at their full native resolution from the Soonr service to an iOS device, allowing users to experience the full impact of video content without being required to wait for the entire file to download. Videos that have been “Favorited” are downloaded in full native resolution locally for offline viewing.

iWorks Rendering Support: The iOS version of the Soonr Workplace mobile app has been enhanced to enable rendering of the full iWorks suite, meaning users can fully display and work with iWorks Pages, Keynote and Numbers files on an iPad or iPhone.

QR Code Support: The Soonr Workplace mobile app now fully supports QR codes, by enabling any file or folder stored in Soonr Workplace to have an associated QR code. The QR codes generated by Soonr Workplace can be communicated electronically or placed in public areas, allowing anyone with a mobile device capable of reading QR codes to easily access content shared in Soonr.

Soonr will be demonstrating these new features during the Macworld/iWorld 2013 show in booth MacIT S7 at the Moscone Center West, San Francisco, California, January 31st- February 2nd.

Pricing, Support and Availability

These updates to the Soonr iOS mobile apps are now available for download on iTunes. Subscription to the Soonr Workplace service starts at $9.95 per month and is available through www.soonr.com or by contacting Soonr Sales at 1-855-377-8500.
