AboutOne’s latest release enhances a customer’s existing calendar and contact tools with online filing and reporting. As life events happen, AboutOne automatically organizes, stores, and shares the information needed to take care of home and family – at home or on-the-go. The solution helps customers eliminate clutter with an easy-to-use and safe alternative for storing paper-based family journals, photos, videos, and artwork, as well as health, education, and possessions details and paperwork. AboutOne links these items to family members, other contacts, and calendar events, providing powerful search functions for instant access to details about people, places, paperwork, and events.
AboutOne will release its Windows Phone app this month, and credits its use of Azure for its ability to extend AboutOne across several platforms. "The ability to build mobile applications quickly opened up tremendous market opportunities for AboutOne, but targeting numerous mobile platforms can be difficult and costly to support. The Windows Azure toolkits for Windows, iOS, and Android platforms made it easier and less expensive for us to extend AboutOne across multiple platforms," said Lang. "This is important given our commitment to making our online organizer a better fit with our customers’ lifestyles by giving them the ability to manage their lives across multiple devices."
