TimeVision Offers German, French Versions of OrgPublisher

TimeVision Inc. Tuesday rolled out French and German versions of OrgPublisher for Intranets, the charting software that allows firms to transform enterprise resource planning data into interactive management reports via a browser.

International users of OrgPublisher say having multilingual versions of the software offers distinct advantages. SAP AG, a leading enterprise resource planning vendor headquartered in Walldorf, Germany, has used the English version of OrgPublisher since 1999, and charts more than 23,000 employees in 44 countries.

OrgPublisher is Open Database Connectivity-compliant, allowing reports and org charts to be generated from data stored in virtually any database, including Microsoft Access, Oracle, SAP and SQL Server. Reports and organizational charts can be viewed from a Web browser such as Microsoft Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator, a Netscape plug-in or an ActiveX plug-in. A trial version of the product is free and may be downloaded here.

"Until we discovered OrgPublisher, every department manager created organizational charts using different tools," said Heinz Wuerth, program director with SAP. "Now, all our SAP internal org charts are consistent, accurate and created automatically from our employee database. Having a German version of OrgPublisher is a great benefit for employees and customers who prefer the choice of creating org charts in German, English or both."

Pricing is based on the number of persons charted, starting at a list price of $1,000 for 100 persons charted. Individual quotes are available for charting needs beyond 20,000 persons charted. OrgPublisher's Personal Edition, which is for smaller companies wanting to manually create org charts is available for $450.
