Introducing Handbook: The Most Versatile Way To Securely Collect, Publish and Present Content On Mobile Devices
SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 27, 2012 /PRNewswire/ — Infoteria Corporation today announced the availability of the Handbook content manager for iPads, iPhones and Android devices. Handbook is the easiest, most flexible and confidence-inspiring way yet to bind together any combination of content–documents, spreadsheets, videos, photos, PDF files, Web links and more–for presentations, business meetings, sharing with colleagues or clients, or just for personal use.
Handbook lets users assemble, publish and/or present collections of files in both online and offline settings. Unlike “slide” presentation software or other linear methods of sharing, Handbook lets the user select any content, in any order, depending on the need. Its flexibility outperforms Microsoft PowerPoint, Google Docs and virtually any kind of conventional content management system. Moreover, the security capabilities of Handbook allow administrators and/or content creators to specify when particular files or pages will appear–or disappear–from view, in order to meet important privacy and security requirements.
With Handbook, a cloud-based service, users can enjoy incredible versatility on any tablet or smartphone:
- Executives can run meetings with confidence by securely sharing reports and presentations with meeting attendees in real time. The presenter can display Handbook contents on a projector or big screen while attendees can reference the same Handbook during and after the meeting. Meeting minutes can be added post-meeting for future review.
- Salespeople can adjust their sales presentations on-the-fly to match the needs and interests of different clients. Moreover, new or updated sales materials can be incorporated at a moment’s notice.
- Customer Service Personnel have the flexibility to move quickly through the precise material needed for purchase transactions, applications, claims, onsite repairs and deliveries.
- Professionals can quickly share charts and documents with clients, patients and colleagues.
- Employees can share and publish information with their work teams and vendors, collaborating as needed.
- Anyone can collect music files, albums of photos, project documents and much more.
“With the move to mobile devices, more and more people are looking for a way to easily assemble, organize, share and present diverse kinds of content–on any kind of tablet or smartphone. Handbook is the answer,” said John McMahon, Chief Technical Officer, Infoteria America Corporation. “Handbook has already been proven by thousands of people in enterprises and universities outside the United States, and now it’s available here. It’s secure, it’s fast, it’s easy to use, and it integrates with virtually all popular business software. For salespeople, Handbook is a real confidence-booster–and for any user it will quickly become their most popular productivity tool.”
Handbook allows content to be organized in any fashion, from albums and folders to chapters and sections. To control distribution of content among work teams and business partners, any file or grouping can be password-protected with a key code.
Handbook is accessible via PC, to make assembling and managing content easy. The application is comprised of Handbook Studio, a browser-based tool for uploading and managing content, and the Handbook viewer mobile application to view, browse, and present content. Specific features include:
- Online and offline HTML5 support, allowing Web pages with many forms of moving rich-media content to be stored and viewed even when an Internet connection is not available. Users are also able to manipulate such content via hand gestures on their device–an impressive enhancement during presentations.
- A survey/questionnaire function that lets teachers, professors, corporate trainers and other instructors give quizzes via their portable devices and show the results–no paper needed.
- Onscreen PDF annotation, enabling users to circle or notate content using just their finger.
- A “pointer dot” tool that is fingertip-controlled on touch surfaces for more engaging presentations
- Content security via user controls that cover groups, specific content, and time frames. Especially useful for financial, pharmaceutical and healthcare users subject to strict security guidelines, Handbook lets administrators and content creators control who sees certain stored files, images or Web pages, and for how long–a must for organizations with BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) policies.
Infoteria offers Handbook as a 30-day free trial. The application is available via the Apple iTunes app store, Android Play Store, or by download at the Handbook Web site.
