Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, a leading provider of communications, cloud and networking solutions tailored to customers’ industries, and Ascensio System SIA, the developer and provider of ONLYOFFICE, have announced the release of a new plugin.
The ONLYOFFICE Rainbow plugin allows users to seamlessly connect their RainbowTM accounts and communicate with team members within ONLYOFFICE Docs, the powerful online editor for text documents, spreadsheets, and presentations.
A new way of communicating securely
Rainbow by Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise is a robust, and easy-to-use communication tool. It provides a business conferencing and real time collaboration platform with time management and privacy tools, enabling teams to collaborate via messaging, video, and phone, from anywhere, on any device.
ONLYOFFICE is an open-source and secure online office suite focused on advanced and secure document processing. With over 7 million users worldwide, it is a proven innovator in the online office business.
The new plugin enables users to communicate securely with their teams, using Rainbow within ONLYOFFICE Docs. The easy-to-use integrated cloud solution is simple to deploy and drives team efficiency by facilitating real-time collaboration, communication, and simultaneous access, for users via an ergonomic interface.
Rainbow and ONLYOFFICE are already being used by millions of users globally. Both solutions were developed in Europe and are hosted in secure European datacenters. As many businesses continue to adopt new ways of working and hybrid offices, the partnership enables companies of any size, from any sector, to continue collaborating seamlessly.
Galina Goduhina, Head of Sales and Partner Relations at ONLYOFFICE said, “We are very pleased to be working with Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, as together we offer secure and reliable team communications to all users. Our sovereign European datacenters mean that we can offer a greater level of security than other solutions based outside of the EU”.
According to Jean-Philippe Lenot, Strategic Partnership Director at Alcatel-Lucent Enterprise, “The convergence between office and collaboration solutions in the cloud is part of our growth strategy. Enterprises need fully integrated suites that are easy to use and simple to deploy in this increasingly digitalised world. ONLYOFFICE proposes a solution that is innovative and widely used in Europe, so the joint use cases enabled by the Rainbow connector delivers a solution of choice.
The Rainbow plugin is compatible with self-hosted versions of ONLYOFFICE Docs. Detailed instructions on how to install the plugin are available on the ONLYOFFICE website.
The solution is available in European countries. The plugin is the first solution to offer increased integration between Rainbow and ONLYOFFICE. Additional plugins and functionalities will be added as customer needs and wants evolve.
