CloudOn is a cloud-based productivity service that lets people edit Microsoft Office documents on their mobile devices, such as iPhones, iPads, and Android tablets and phones.

Launched in January, 2012, it already has 4.5 million users.

In this video, chief executive Milind Gadekar talks about the company’s technology and mission.

“We’re looking to make the document more social,” Gadekar says. To that end, the company is adding features beyond just Office document viewing and editing, such as sharing, collaboration, and providing context.

As Gadekar points out, most people in the enterprise share documents via email, so there’s a huge opportunity for CloudOn to reshape productivity on mobile devices.

“We’ve taken Office and made it touch-friendly,” Gadekar says.

Find out more about CloudOn’s product — and its plans for new features — in the video below. Look for the company at the upcoming MobileBeat conference, July 9-10 in San Francisco.
