Thru Releases Office 365 Add-In

New add-in allows customers to seamlessly edit and save files for Office applications inside the Thru cloud; New versioning feature allows easy roll back to older versions

Irving, TX, September 12, 2016 — Thru today announced that it has released a new add-in to seamlessly integrate its Thru platform with Office 365. Customers using the new add-in can now access files in the Thru cloud directly from Microsoft Office applications without leaving Office.

The add-in works with either 32- or 64-bit versions of Microsoft’s most popular suite of applications including Word, Excel and PowerPoint. Users have the ability to save directly into their organization’s Thru cloud or on-premises file repository without the need of saving a local copy. Users can efficiently collaborate on and share documents saved in the cloud. Coupled with the 365 add-in, users can access documents from any device.

There is no sacrifice of security as Thru’s end-to-end security model is maintained. Users are securely authenticated directly from Word, Excel or PowerPoint, and all actions are logged and auditable within the platform.

Thru’s unlimited versioning feature automatically creates Thru repository versions when saving, which allows easy roll back to any older versions when necessary. Speaking about Thru’s Office 365 add-in launch, Lee Harrison, CEO of Thru said, “This level of integration into Office 365 represents yet another first milestone for Thru. Thru recognized years ago that integration with Office was essential for smooth workflows in the enterprise out of which Thru’s flagship Microsoft Outlook add-in with file system side panel was conceived. The coupling of Thru Office 365 and Thru Outlook add-ins simplifies the day-to-day tasks of millions of users with powerful collaboration capability.”

Thru’s new Office 365 add-in will be globally available in September to Thru customers.
