StreamServe Receives SAP XSF Certification

For Immediate Release StreamServe Receives SAP XSF Certification Lexington, Massachusetts - February 15, 2001, StreamServe, Inc., a leading provider of business communication software and certified SAP Software Partner, announced it is among the first to receive certification for SAP's Smart Forms XML Interface, XSF. StreamServe successfully demonstrated its ability to read XML input data from SAP and generate customized output data in a variety of formats. Obtaining XSF certification extends StreamServe's integration capabilities to support the latest SAP software; thus enabling StreamServe to continue offering world-class solutions to customers who want to leverage their SAP systems to expand their business communication functionality. The certification process required StreamServe to receive sample XSF data from several SAP applications, format it and then produce dynamic documents both for online viewing and in printed form. XSF is SAP's new XML output data interface for Smart Forms, the successor of SAPscript. Employing SAP's form printing functionality, companies can use StreamServe to create dynamic documents in various formats and deliver them through different communication channels such as browser based applications, email and wireless devices. The certified XSF solution enables personalization of business communications, flexible document formatting and enhanced production capabilities, allowing more flexibility and lower cost of ownership through tight integration into the SAP system. Additionally, companies can increase efficiency by using StreamServe to create multiple documents such as a customer invoice, a sales order confirmation and an archiving document using one data stream from their SAP system. "With the SAP XSF certification, StreamServe continues to support SAP customers by taking our business communication platform's integration to the next level," stated Dennis Ladd, StreamServe's Chief Technology Officer. "StreamServe's XML development continues to be a major focus for us; our ability to support XSF clearly demonstrates our commitment to XML and emerging technologies." StreamServe together with HP obtained certification during SAP's pilot XSF certification program. The certified HP product, the new "HP Output Management System (HPOMS)" includes StreamServe technology and was introduced to the market in January 2001. Last year, StreamServe and HP created an alliance that calls for collaboration on SAP integration and enhanced functionality among other initiatives. This certification clearly demonstrates progress with this strategic relationship. About StreamServe StreamServe is a provider of eBusiness communication software.
