Papyrs enhances collaboration with a drag and drop intranet. Users can build their personalized intranet with images, attachments, check lists, texts and other elements placed on their custom pages. Each element is added by dragging and dropping it where the user wants it to go, eliminating the need for extensive programming knowledge. Online forms are supported so the user can collect data from teammates and clients. Papyrs generates reports so the user can easily review the data. Each time the user creates a new page they can add a unique name and add it to a category. New categories can be created as well. Papyrs allows users to easily build a functional, professional looking page quickly and painlessly.
Papyrs.com was launched into beta in April of 2011. The application was geared to offer professionals and businesses an easier way to build functional intranet pages. The current version has been met with an overall popular response from users. It has also gained popularity because of the way it works with eco-friendly offices to reduce paper waste by storing documents, forms and content in a digital format. The application has continued to expand its horizons and has been accepted into the Google Apps Marketplace.
There are two things that make Papyrs so appealing to professionals. First is its highly customizable design. The user can easily build pages that meet their needs in terms of functionality and look good enough to share with clients. The second thing is the way Papyrs encourages users to go paperless. Users can store documents and create forms to gather information through their intranet pages. The user’s office can reduce paper waste and operate more smoothly overall with Papyrs helping out.
Papyrs looks professional and feels completely sleek and smooth. The drag and drop interface really shines with this application. Users can easily build a page by simply clicking and dragging the items they want where they want them. Papyrs includes a variety of elements that can be added instantly using this system. Even a novice user can easily build a page that looks good and functions as intended without worrying about code.
New users interested in trying Papyrs can click the orange “Try the Free Beta!” button along the right hand side of the homepage. The short registration form on the following page asks for the user’s email address, password and their desired Papyrs URL. After submitting the form (which automatically confirms the user’s agreement with the Papyrs terms of service), the user is automatically logged in and can begin trying the beta.
New users can only choose the beta sign up option at this time, which is free. The Papyrs homepage notes that pricing information is not yet available. Once the site launches its subscription plans, there will be multiple tiers intended for small and medium sized businesses. The website does not yet list any of the features that will be included nor does it hint at how users will be billed and what kind of price range will be offered.
Papyrs.com is intended for small to medium size businesses and professional teams that need a better way to share information and communicate. Users can build custom pages and create a tool that caters to their individual needs. The drag and drop system gives all users the power to build pages, not just the company or team’s programmers. The application is very user friendly and includes a number of built in elements so users have many options when constructing pages.
