SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- December 13, 2012

Citrix (NASDAQ:CTXS) today announced more than 200,000 organizations globally
have adopted Podio, a powerful collaboration platform that enables people to
work the way they want to, cut down on email and free themselves from content
chaos. Podio can be accessed on the web, iPad, iPhone and Android devices,
providing organizations with greater flexibility and transparency than ever
before.

“The social business industry is at an important inflection point, as
organizations are now moving beyond just sharing and transparency, and are
adopting a more mature focus on getting real work done,” said Alan Lepofsky,
vice president and principal analyst at Constellation Research. “Citrix
Podio’s approach is to provide customers a platform on which they can improve
core business processes by adding integrated collaboration elements, enabling
them to realize the business value that social software can really provide.”

Podio by the numbers

  *Today, more than 2.6 million Podio apps from the Podio App Market have
    been installed in Podio workspaces. Podio workspaces have reached 700,000.
  *More than 300,000 Podio apps have been created from scratch or modified by
    Podio users using the simple Podio App Builder, representing as many
    unique ways of getting work done.
  *Almost 50 percent of Podio workspaces are ‘open’ instead of ‘private,’
    meaning any employee within an organization can participate. The large
    numbers of open Podio workspaces validates the growing industry trend
    towards sharing and increasing transparency in the workplace via social
    technology.
  *Podio users have created 80 percent more status messages in workspace
    activity streams than private messages, and 50 percent more openly shared
    tasks than private ones. The way Podio users collaborate and communicate
    using Podio aligns with the workshifting trend of collaborating through
    social business tools and moving away from traditional communication
    silos, such as email or privately delegated tasks.

Introducing Podio Share

Citrix also announced today an innovative new Podio feature enabling users to
share content, app data and tasks from Podio with teammates, partners or
customers outside a private Podio workspace. The Podio Share feature also
enables sharing of select content with recipients that are not in the Podio
environment without compromising content privacy. Podio Share extends the
collaborative power of Podio to anyone, but  lets teams stay in control of the
content they share.

Podio customer Miinto, an online fashion retailer operating in seven countries
worldwide, uses Podio to host the online sale of more than 120,000 fashion
products from over 1500 independent fashion retailers and brands. Podio CRM
apps facilitate the daily handling of thousands of sales leads at Miinto,
inhouse and in the field, that make it easy for the sales team to stay
coordinated and updated on the progress of deals in real time. Podio also
enables every Miinto employee to communicate and collaborate efficiently
across all markets in which Miinto operates. With Podio Share, Miinto can now
extend the Podio platform to anyone involved in a new product launch,
including models working as contractors.

“As part of the Miinto photo studio, we work with a lot of freelancers and
contractors,” said Rory Gullan, photo studio manager, Miinto UK. “By using
Podio Share I can now invite these contractors to very specific parts of our
Podio workspaces, without having to share too much information; it means that
sensitive information is kept secure, but it also makes it very easy for
someone externally to access only what's relevant to them on Podio.”
