*Instant trial & collaboration*

Introduce OpenOffice.org 3.0 to others via email: invite them from the Ulteo desktop to discover OpenOffice.org with just one click, on the "Share" button and can give a personal tour of the program in realtime. Invitations are sent via email and allow access in either read only or full edit mode, simply by clicking on a link in the email.

Using Ulteo's service, users can exploit features of OpenOffice.org which may be missing from their current desktop software. For example, OpenOffice.org can read and write Microsoft Office files, and generate .pdf format files without requiring any additional software. OpenOffice.org also reads and writes documents in OpenDocument Format, the ISO-approved standard for office documents, which can only be read in Microsoft Office after installing a plug-in.
