SPI, the African distributor for utility software products and services to the open systems segment of the IT industry and the sole Sub-Saharan Africa distributor for HelpSystems, today announced the latter's release of Cloud Connectors, a new feature of its managed file transfer solution that enables IT professionals to integrate with popular third-party services such as Salesforce, SharePoint, Microsoft Dynamics 365, Box and Dropbox.

With this new release, GoAnywhere MFT users now have access to built-in connections that automate the movement of data between their on-premises and cloud applications.

"Cloud migration is a growing initiative in several companies and many teams need an easy way to connect to the applications they use every day," commented Bob Luebbe, General Manager of GoAnywhere at HelpSystems.

"For example, a user may need to retrieve customer information from Salesforce CRM. Instead of having to write complex integration software on their own, an organisation can use our Salesforce Cloud Connector to set up an automated process to integrate with Salesforce data with just a couple minutes of effort."

HelpSystems also launched a new GoAnywhere marketplace that organisations can use to browse for, download, and maintain these integrations.

"Our Cloud Connector Marketplace gives GoAnywhere users access to many of the industry's most popular integrations," added Steve Luebbe, GoAnywhere Director of Engineering at HelpSystems. "Installation is fast and painless, thus allowing organisations to connect to the third-party applications they need when they need to."

IT professionals who want to create their own unique file transfer integrations can do so with GoAnywhere's drag-and-drop designer interface. GoAnywhere can be deployed to most operating systems including Windows, Linux, AIX, and IBM i, as well as run in virtualised environments such as VMware, Amazon AWS, and Azure.
