DoxOut, the Macedonian-based provider of enterprise software for the cloud, has big plans for the post-PC era of editing and creating documents. Everyone is pumped about innovation in mobile and applications for smartphones, yet the document editing process still remains on the PC for most people. DoxOut’s suite of cloud-based products aims to bring full composing and editing functionality to users, no matter what device they’re using or how small a screen they’re looking at. The company will be presenting as part of GigaOM’s Structure: Europe 2012 LaunchPad contest.
The company’s products are still in beta, but they’ve created a series of demo videos showing just how versatile their offerings will be. There’s an iPhone being used as a presentation remote, controlling the slides streaming from an iPad onto a larger screen. There’s the option of docking your smartphone or tablet running DoxOut’s software to use the mobile device as a keyboard for those documents displayed on a big screen. And of course you can create, edit, and save your documents through the DoxOut application on mobile itself, saving to the device or the cloud.
DoxOut is committed to the idea that creating and editing information on your tablet or smartphone shouldn’t be a subpar experience to what you get on your PC. It provides its own tools for creating and editing presentations, but the software also lets you manipulate Google(s goog) Docs or Microsoft(s msft) files as well. The software can run even when the device is offline.
While it’s still in private beta and hasn’t publicly launched, CEO Gligor Dachevski said they should have a public product within a few months, and are looking for investors. Dachevski’s last venture was a fitness app called SportyPal that came pre-installed on Xperia Active from Sony Ericsson smartphones, and he said he’s hoping to find a hardware manufacturer who would be interested in pre-installing DoxOut on phones in a similar fashion.
DoxOut is one of five finalists in our Structure: Europe Launchpad competition, which will take place on October 16th in Amsterdam. More information can be found here.
