The Crossroads Awards, sponsored by Open Systems Advisors (OSA), Inc., distinguish the best new enterprise solutions, with particular focus on solutions that support the complete business process, from the supply chain through the back office, all the way to customer interaction. Livelink was an obvious contender for this award because of its ability to provide an industry-leading integrated system, instantly deployable, out of the box.

Livelink was nominated for the Crossroads A-List because it is interoperable in a multivendor environment consisting of PCs, Unix and traditional systems. OpenText is proud to be recognized as an industry leader in the knowledge management arena," said Dan Latendre, Vice-President, Product Marketing, OpenText Corp. "Our success can be largely attributed to the innovative thinking that makes Livelink a tightly integrated Web-based enterprise solution, allowing us to support cross-functional teams working in multiple locations, for Global 2000 corporations around the world."

Winners are determined after reviewing vendors' products, services, and strategies, then conducting in-depth interviews with experienced customers. To set the research agenda, OSA interviews and surveys several hundred seasoned IT executives OSA trusts for credible assessments of new technology in the enterprise. Working with the Crossroads Decision Makers, they identify the Crossroads Decisions, pivotal technology decision points for business. They invite users and vendors to nominate emerging products and services in these areas.

Crossroads cites the following comment from an OpenText customer: "The high-tech manufacturing, telecom, utilities, and aerospace industries are all undergoing rapid change because of regulatory changes and global competition. They need to be able to respond quickly to the challenge or lose market share. Livelink helps customers with geographically dispersed project teams shorten production cycles and increase competitiveness..."

Livelink Wins Editors’ Choice Award from Computer Reseller News

June 15, 1998

CRN was also impressed by Livelink 8's powerful search engine, and its logical and intuitive interface with customizable icons and drop-down menus.

"The speed at which pages are built in Livelink and the completeness of the information presented are sure to be a boon to the knowledge-management industry." said Eddie Correia, Senior Technical Editor, Computer Reseller News.
