London, UK – 23rd February, 2009 – GLOBO, a leader in e-business solutions and a SaaS solutions provider, has announced that its pioneering CitronGO!™ cloud software will offer users a new 'My Folders' service that will, for the first time, enable them to create, manage folders of any structure, and upload files of any type and size in just a few clicks. CitronGO!™'s unique 'DNA' is the only cloud technology to date that allows users, through a single sign-on, to access, synchronise and manage all their contacts, calendars, emails, including social networking messages and IMs, as well as integrate this new Folders capability.

CitronGO!™'s particular 'My Folders' service includes revolutionary capabilities, such as 'Share online', 'Attach to email', and 'Drop to a Friend', that enable users to instantly create and share files and complete folders with friends and colleagues via their laptops, PCs, PDAs and even from a cell phone, in just a few clicks. For the first time, users will be able to upload videos on their YouTube accounts, invite friends to see photo albums, share collaboration documents with colleagues and co-workers, without being constricted by quota limitations or other data transfer barriers, while being 'truly' mobile. The new capability also allows users to select either to password-protect any shared data so that only contacts selected can view the information or to publicly share their files and folders with the CitronGO!™ community.

"CitronGO!™ is very straightforward and so easy to use. The new 'Drop to a Friend' capability enables users – via a few clicks – to select not only single files but also whole directories with multiple folders to send to one or a number of contacts and just…let it GO! Our cloud takes care of the rest," comments Costis Papadimitrakopoulos, Founder and CEO of GLOBO. "Most importantly however, CitronGO!™ is able to do this thanks to revolutionary data compression techniques that reduce data size over the air and consequently data costs for the end user, whilst providing faster and more secure delivery. The service is instantaneous – in just minutes all the contacts selected receive the files and folders, and are able to view them online or download them."

CitronGO!™ is available on a 'Software as a Service' basis, enabling telecoms providers, operators, cell phone manufacturers, ISPs, and OEMs to offer CitronGO!™ to their customers as part of their data strategy. Around Q3-Q4 of FY2009, businesses will be able to incorporate CitronGO!™ into their corporate infrastructure via a fully licensed 'Enterprise' model to offer the same benefits to their employees for use on their corporate cell phones. Value Added Service providers, companies and resellers will be able to provide the service as a third party via their own distribution. CitronGO!™ supports almost all handsets, including Windows Mobile, Symbian, Palm, BREW and Java/J2ME, and has the ability to turn every cell phone into a Smartphone. It is downloadable directly via the website.
