Its aim is to recognize the enterprise needs of its customers, allowing an additional range of users to be added to their accounts to allow for true collaboration across their entire stakeholder range.  These new ‘lite’ users are then able to access the appropriate Huddle account on a more occasional basis to their full counterparts, letting them see and comment on the information they need, without the need to have the full access that other organizational users need.  As an added bonus, these Lite users are added free of charge to the account holder!
