Hummingbird Ltd. announced the acquisition of PeopleDoc Ltd., a UK-based, privately held company specializing in software used to create secure, Web-based collaborative environments in which projects can be managed across the extended enterprise. The acquisition will allow Hummingbird to incorporate new collaboration functionality into its existing enterprise portal and document management products. PeopleDoc’s technology organizes teams and content in the context of their relevant projects, providing secure access to project documents, discussion threads, task lists and schedules. Users require only a Web browser to access the centralized work area, while a sophisticated security model enables extensive customization of access rights at the project, folder and document level.
