CollabFactory Ships First Major Product in SFConnector

This cost-effective connector streamlines information flow between and Microsoft SharePoint.

WATERTOWN, Mass., Oct. 3, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- CollabFactory, a RedMetal company and a provider of powerful, yet easy-to-use enterprise SharePoint solutions, today announced the production release of its first product, SFConnector, a connector for SharePoint. 

SFConnector is a comprehensive application for sharing and synchronizing information between and SharePoint to ensure that shared data is always up to date. Using the native web service APIs of, the connector gives individuals and teams the information they need to be more collaborative and productive.  This cost-effective solution eliminates duplicate licensing fees, and is already deployed within multiple organizations.

"SFConnector allowed us to manage our core product information and documentation in SharePoint, and publish it to our clients via our SalesForce-hosted knowledgebase," said Helen Jackson, Director of Global Client Services at SS&C PORTIA.  "Connecting the two environments eliminated significant redundancy in our team's workload and streamlined the flow of information to our clients."

Fully supported by both platforms, SFConnector allows bi-directional synchronization of lists, documents and other shared data.  Without compromising the integrity of either database, it recognizes the relationships between entities, and maintains those links as information is exchanged.

"When these two systems aren't integrated, users waste time going back and forth between the two environments looking for basic information like customer contacts and related documents," explained Matt Jackson, CollabFactory's founder.  "If they try to maintain two separate lists of the information, they'll ultimately end up with discrepancies that can adversely affect team decisions and customer interactions.  SFConnector solves those problems in a natural, easy to maintain and cost-effective way."

A demo version of the SFConnector is available for download directly from the CollabFactory website.  For more information about SFConnector and any of CollabFactory's suite of SharePoint products, please visit Pricing and licensing options for SFConnector are available by emailing
