OneDrum Keeps The Beat For Office Docs writes:

Having trouble getting your clients to use Google Docs? I know the feeling. My clients work a lot in MS Office, and many are too scared to try Google Docs, think it's too much of a hassle, or can't access it from restricted corporate networks. The result is outdated documents, endless change-merging—you name it. It seems I'm always searching my emails looking for the latest version of whatever they've sent me.

Finally, there's a solution. oneDrum, released this week, is a peer-to-peer coauthoring platform like Google Docs, based entirely in Microsoft Office.

It offers:

  • automatic syncing of shared folders and files, so everyone always has the latest version on their computer
  • complete version history, so you can roll back to a previous version of the file at any time
  • real-time editing of documents (on PC, coming soon to Mac)
  • and end to confusion between system and application keystrokes and clipboards
  • all over a peer-to-peer desktop application.

Oh, and it's free.
