WEST CHESTER, PA – Areshay, a file-sharing app that allows users to access all of their personal and enterprise documents together in one app, is being developed at Walnut St. Labs, a technology incubator and innovation consultancy in West Chester PA.

The first public beta for Areshay (pig latin for “Share”) will be available on the Google Play store in Q3 2014. The app currently supports integration with Sharepoint, Salesforce, Box and Dropbox with many more to follow in the coming months.

“Mobile professionals have cloud storage accounts across different services, and enterprise level accounts have traditionally been trapped behind a corporate firewall. When you first use Areshay, it’s a very liberating experience – like a big family reunion for all of your files.” said founder, Chris Dima.

Areshay is being developed in partnership with Philadelphia, PA based Point.io and their founder, Andrew Schwabe. Point.io is a “Modern Middleware” platform that provides the power to share documents with absolute control and security.

“Areshay is addressing a void in the market by providing Android users with access to Enterprise documents and SaaS services,” Point.io’s CEO Ron Rock said. “Combined with the benefits of the Point.io platform, Areshay complements the needs of US enterprises, while opening new opportunities in European and Asian markets where there is a large adoption of Android for business.”
