Open Text Livelink Prospers

Open Text Corp. (NASDAQ: OTEXF) today announced it passed the half-million user mark worldwide with its Livelink intranet product.

The number of Livelink seats increased eightfold, from 60,000 users one year ago, when IDC Corp. rated Open Text the market leader in Web-enabled document management.

These results also corroborate a recent report by the Delphi Group, naming Open Text the market growth leader in collaborative knowledge management software.

"Open Text has succeeded at spinning the Web to meet customer needs in a number of key business critical application areas," according to Mark Levitt, Research Manager, Collaborative and Intranet Computing, International Data Corp.

"With the help of partnerships and acquisitions, 0pen Text has become well positioned to compete against entrenched vendors in the document management and collaboration markets."

Recent Open Text wins have included new accounts as well as existing customers expanding their implementations of Livelink across the enterprise. They span a number of vertical markets around the globe and include such organizations as Qualcomm Inc., TRW, Newbridge Networks, Nissan Finance, Provident Financial, TransCanada Pipelines, and Motorola, among hundreds of others.

With the recent acquisition of OnTime enterprise group scheduling software--currently being integrated with Livelink--the total Open Text installed base now exceeds 1.2 million users.
