Working remotely is great, until you have to dig into a document on a mobile device. To help professionals get things done while on the go, Doculus is partnering with Microsoft to make Office 365 documents more readable.

Doculus is a document reader that segments your documents into an easy to read format. Comments are highlighted with a little red icon, and the text size can be scaled to suit your needs.

According to Doculus, 92 percent of the workforce say they don’t feel productive when they’re mobile.

With its Microsoft partnership, Office 365 documents will be optimized for use with Doculus. According to Rob Howard, Director of the Office 365 Ecosystem for Microsoft, “to truly solve the problem of contract reviews on mobile phones, the entire experience needs to be reimagined. The tool needs to allow for fast review of edits with the ability to jump across sections and exhibits.” Doculus is apparently the right tool for that job.

Doculus is available for iOS from the App Store.
