Repligo vs Wiksoft

I am looking for a way to remotely access and edit my documents on a network share from my Blackberry. I have done some amount of research on Repligo & Wiksoft, but want opinions, other options & comparisons.

Basically what are the differences / advantages of one over the other?

Can either download, edit with Documents to Go, and save back to the network share?

Do you have to download the file, open docs to go, edit it, save it, then somehow upload it back, or is it more streamlined than that?

Thanks for your help & opinions!

Hi, as an FYI the ability to open\edit network files is a default option of BES 5 but it will require version 5.0.x.x firmware or higher.  I have been using Repligo for a number of years and the latest version only allows you to open and view select network documents.  I have a number of customers running WickSoft and they love the software but I believe it only allows you to view network documents.

As both Repligo and WickSoft offer 30 days trials it would be worth testing the software.  They install very easily onto your BES.
What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Thanks garycutri for the info on BES 5.0! That may just change everything!

Also, according to their websites, both products do allow you to download files to your phone, at which point you could edit them. The question then still exists - can you upload them back to the server and how streamlined is that process?

Also, is it really a several steps process - download using one of these apps, open docs to go, edit, save to blackberry, then go back into this other app and upload (or connect blackberry to your computer when you get back to the office and copy the file back up to the network share -- if uploading is not supported) or is it choose edit and it downloads the doc for you, opens in docs to go and you click save and it saves back to network server?

Thanks again!

Using the latest Repligo I just used the "Network" option to download a word and excel document to my media card.  I then used Documents to Go on the device to open and edit both files.  To upload the files this has to done by connecting to device to the PC and uploading the file manually.

I appreciate your quick responses - and the effort you put forth to test this.

I found on the Wisksoft FAQ that uploading is not supported, so between that and your test it appears neither will do what we want.

Looks like we will be waiting for BES 5!
