Open-Xchange Brings User-Friendly Open Source Collaboration Software to Small Businesses
Open-Xchange Express Edition Gives Businesses the Benefits of a World Class Open Source Collaboration Solution Without the Need

TARRYTOWN, N.Y., July 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Open-Xchange Inc., today announced full-featured collaboration software designed to make it easy for small- and medium-sized businesses to take advantage of the cost benefits of open source without requiring prior Linux know-how. The product, Open-Xchange Express Edition, provides organizations with an alternative to expensive proprietary collaboration software.

Open-Xchange Express Edition includes all the tools required by companies to facilitate communication and efficient teamwork. The product does not require a licensed operating system or any other software prior to installation. Open-Xchange Express Edition transforms a bare metal computer into a fully-functional e-mail and groupware Server integrating the increasingly popular Ubuntu operating system.

"Many organizations -- especially those categorized as small and medium- sized businesses -- require a low-cost and low-maintenance in-house solution that unites e-mail, calendaring, tasks and document sharing," said Gerald Labie, CEO, Open-Xchange. "Open-Xchange Express Edition was designed specifically for this underserved but large corner of the market."

To further facilitate the adoption process, Open-Xchange Express Edition supports standard groupware clients, such as Microsoft Outlook. Outlook users on Open-Xchange Express Edition can synchronize public, private, and shared folders, accept or decline appointments through Outlook, manage private appointments, tasks, contacts, and "Free/Busy" status. In addition, Open- Xchange Express Edition's AJAX-based web interface is always accessible to users, regardless of platform.

While developing Open-Xchange Express Edition, the company was determined to make the solution user-friendly. The installation wizard guides companies through the process of configuring the operating system and groupware solution in a few steps. The installation can be completed within minutes and delivers a fully functional smart collaboration solution including a self-explanatory user interface to support ease of use.

"Ubuntu has radically changed the economics of IT for small business owners," said Mark Shuttleworth, founder of Ubuntu. "Integrated, ready-to-work software solutions like Open-Xchange Express Edition on Ubuntu make it easier for non-technical SMEs to increase productivity and spur innovation while reducing their IT costs at the same time."

In addition to easy installation, Open-Xchange Express Edition offers enterprise users simple and intuitive tools with intelligent features, such as smart links between calendar appointments, task lists, contacts, documents, bookmarks, and knowledge articles.

"Open-Xchange collaboration features, when delivered with tested, certified and supported open source middleware and operating systems, means lower acquisition and operating costs for customers," said Kim Polese, CEO of SpikeSource. "Reliable and secure open-source solutions have become a part of the SME scene and we look forward to offering Open-Xchange Express Edition to our customers."

Prices and Availability

Open-Xchange Express Edition is available today at the Open-Xchange Online Shop ( and through qualified resellers. Prices for end customers start at US$ 898 / euro 691. Governmental, non- profit organizations and educational organizations are eligible for discounts. All prices exclude VAT.
