Excosoft partners with Microsoft to offer Web-based authoring solution integrated with Exchange 2000

Excosoft partners with Microsoft to offer Web-based authoring solution integrated with Exchange 2000 The addition of Web-based authoring capabilities to Exchange 2000 promises to redefine how people collaborate over the Internet. Kista, Sweden - August 16, 2000 - Excosoft AB, a leading provider of content management solutions, today announced a partnership with Microsoft to extend the messaging and collaboration infrastructure of Exchange 2000 with their Web-based authoring technology. The cornerstone of the partnership is WebDAV (short for Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning). WebDAV represents a major advance over existing Web capabilities, which are for the most part limited to read-only access, by enabling Web-based documents and information to be created and updated directly on a Web server. Both Microsoft and Excosoft are in the first-wave of technology vendors to deliver WebDAV-compliant products. Being able to create and share information across geographic and organizational barriers is vital to the success of any business. Microsoft developed their Exchange 2000 Server in recognition of this, and Exchange 2000 will significantly advance the way people collaborate over the Internet - with the addition of Excosoft's Web-based authoring capabilities it promises to completely redefine the way we work together. "Exchange 2000 Server will give business new avenues for collaboration and communication. We see Web-based authoring as an exciting way to extend these avenues," said Niclas Dahl, Partner Manager at Microsoft, Sweden. "We chose Excosoft as a partner because they are a company that innovates, with products designed to integrate well with Microsoft technologies." "This is a great opportunity for Excosoft." said Jörgen Friman, President and CEO of Excosoft. "We expect Web-based authoring to become a major component of eBusiness applications in the near future."
