Kerio's Samepage cloud service aims to make collaboration simpler and eliminate the need for IT support.

Based on Kerio Workspace (the company's alternative to SharePoint), Samepage is delivered as a cloud service to simplify adoption by non-technical users and without having to involve the client organisation's IT department.

Senior director of business development James Gudeli described Samepage as "intelligent social collaboration in the cloud".

As its name suggests, Samepage revolves around the idea of shared (web) pages that can be edited easily, rather than shared files. That said, it does make provision for file sharing and synchronisation.

Users can add a variety of items to a page, including text, images, tables, tasks, calendar events, and movies. Mashup items allow items from services such as Google Maps and Vimeo to be included on a page by copying and pasting the URL.

"The page is really easy to construct," senior marketing manager Matt Lovato told iTWire.

Samepage also makes provision for comments, which are displayed in a context-sensitive manner. For example, comments associated with a particular page are visible as you move up the hierarchy of nested pages, but not if you move to a 'sibling' page at the same level.

Four levels of access are supported: reader, contributor, editor and administrator. Users from outside the organisation (eg, suppliers or customers) can be given reader or contributor access.

The service was soft-launched at the end of January, and the company is now starting to put some marketing effort behind it. It has attracted between 7000 and 8000 users, including at least one Australian organisation, Mr Gudeli told iTWire.

Samepage can be used free of charge for up to 10GB of storage (2GB is allowed for the first user, plus an extra 500MB for additional users) with a file size limit of 250MB.

The premium (paid) plan costs $10 per user per month, or $100 per user per year. This removes the file size limitation, and provides 10GB of storage. Additional storage is offered in 10GB blocks at $5 per user per month or $50 per user per year.
