Email Center Pro joins the Office 2.0 Fray

29 Aug

Email Center Pro is designed to help you centralize your email, crawl out of the weeds, take control of your day and generally dominate an efficiency space.

Now, as this software as a service (SaaS) offering nears a version 2.0, it will take the stage with some of the industry’s best and brightest at Office 2.0 in San Francisco, September 3-5, 2008. That’s right, a few months ago, Email Center Pro was an internal solution created by Palo Alto Software as a way to manage email traffic barreling into the office through info@, sales@ and customerservice@ pipes.

At the conference, Sept. 3-5, the Email Center Pro service will stand next to the likes of Google and Salesforce.com as a piece of a SaaS pie responsible for creating an infrastructure for the conference. Office 2.0 prides itself on morphing from a paper-less existence into one of the premier annual tech “unconferences”. Email Center Pro fits seamlessly into that framework.

In fact, the conference makes for a tidy little use case. Here’s how it’s going to be used:

The conference organizers, Ismael and May Ghalimi, are the proud parents of http://www.office20.com. They’ve created email addresses like feedback@office20.com, logistics@office20.com, etc.

With those in place, they are creating an Email Center Pro account. Into that account they will funnel the mail from as many inboxes as they wish. Email Center Pro will pull that mail through the use of POP, and the Ghalimis — along with any other users they wish to add — will be able to manage all of the conference-specific email from a centralized location.

I don’t want it to sound like I’m tooting our own horn here at Palo Alto Software, but, well, that’s pretty cool.

If you happen to be in San Francisco next week for Office 2.0, make sure and look for Email Center Pro and Jason Gallic, product marketing manager for Email Center Pro.
