United Planet unveils Business Adapter for Microsoft Office at CeBIT


Alternative to managing MS Office documents in a portal environment offered by German software developer

London, 4 March 2009. United Planet (, one of the leading developers of Enterprise Portal software in Europe, has enhanced its Java-based Intrexx Xtreme portal software with the introduction of a Business Adapter for Microsoft Office. Unveiled at CeBIT in Germany this week, the Adapter will enable companies to manage Microsoft Office documents seamlessly in a feature-rich Enterprise Portal. This makes Intrexx Xtreme a smart, cost-effective alternative to Microsoft Office SharePoint Server (MOSS).

The new Business Adapter allows companies to integrate, edit, store and manage all Microsoft Office documents – from Excel tables with sales statistics, PowerPoint presentations or Word documents – centrally on the portal without using the upload and download mechanisms required until now. Users will be able to embed documents into workflows and link them to existing business processes, creating a comprehensive document management platform that enables seamless interaction between documents and processes.

Commenting on the launch, Alexander Marsch, managing director, United Planet Limited, said: “Support for MS Office 2003 onwards means that customers that have implemented Intrexx Xtreme will be able to manage and access all documents without the need for a costly upgrade to MS Office 2007.”

“Intrexx Xtreme has a proven track record in helping companies to create and run web applications, intranets, extranets, and complete enterprise portals within a short period of time. We are confident that the addition of the MS Office Business Adapter will enable our customers to further optimize their business processes and reduce costs associated with document management within a matter of months. All this supports companies in their struggle to survive in the current economic downturn,” he added.
