Planet Intra Teams up with Data Processing Sciences Corp.

Planet Intra announced a partnership with Data Processing Sciences Corporation (DPS) last week, providing its customers with Planet Intra's instant Internet solution.

The Internet solution will be hosted by Planet Intra and co-branded, providing Data Processing Sciences Corporation with a more complete set of solutions for their customers.

"We're quite proud to have DPS hosting our application," Alan McMillan, chief executive officer, said.

Prior to this agreement, Planet Intra (Mountain View, Calif.) did not have coverage in the midwest. DPS began offering the Intranet solutions on June 1 to its customers in Detroit and Nashville, with planned rollouts in other midwest cities over the next several months.

This marks DPS' first move into the ASP space, and McMillan believes the market will be seeing more of these types of partners in the ASP space, referring to regional systems integrators.

"DPS has a very established install base and this will validate our channel," McMillan said.

Planet Intra offers companies a customizable, secure and scalable Intranet solutions that enables information sharing and collaboration on documents, schedules and contacts. DPS customers can receive a 10-user version of Planet Intra for free. Each additional user is $6 per month.
