U.S. Navy Chooses 'Livelink' Intranet

E-business application provider Open Text Corp. Tuesday won a contract from the U.S. Navy.

Now the collaborative intranet standard for the United States Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), Open Text's Livelink reduces filing and storage space requirements, facilitates access to corporate information and enhances customer service.

NAVSEA, responsible for the design, manufacture, lifecycle management and maintenance of all U.S. Navy ships and submarines and their respective weapons systems, has engaged in a major separation. Over the next two years, it will disperse its centralized headquarters to smaller, office locations. NAVSEA procured Livelink to help with the move.

By the end of the year 2000, NAVSEA intends to scale its initial Livelink implementation to include an extranet, connecting thousands of users within the NAVSEA family and allowing them to better serve the fleet.

"NAVSEA's deployment of Livelink is further evidence of Open Text's continued leadership in U.S. government marketspace," said Andrew Pery, vice President, global marketing, Open Text. "Open Text has proven that it meets military requirements not only for collaborative intranet solutions, but for secure, scalable, global extranets that can support thousands of additional users worldwide."

Open Text is a supplier of collaborative, Web-based e-business applications for the enterprise, with over 3.5 million users in 31 countries.
