eRoom Boosts Usability in Hosted Service
Meanwhile, PlaceWare adds an on-site version of its Web meeting and collaboration service.Collaboration software developer eRoom Technology Inc. will announce Monday the next version of its hosted service, eRoom.net 6.0, promising mostly ease-of-use improvements. The hosted service offers similar technology and interface as the licensed version of the digital workspace software. Improvements in this version include easier and better integrated business process and approval management and a cleaner interface. The log-in process has also been streamlined and made more intuitive, eRoom officials in Cambridge, Mass. said. The hosted service currently accounts for about 10 percent of eRooms revenues, company officials said. Many customers try the service before upgrading to the licensed version. Subscriptions to eRoom.net cost $300 per month for from three-to-10 users, $725 a month for 11-to-40 users and $1,200 per month for up to 100 users.
Customers get a 25 percent price break across the board if they sign up for at least six months.
