Litton PRC Chooses Open Text Livelink Intranet To Streamline Knowledge Management in Weather Systems Department

Chicago, IL – 1997-9-29 – Open Text Corporation (NASDAQ:OTEX) announced today that a leading federal government systems integrator, Litton PRC, has chosen Livelink Intranet to streamline collaboration and project management in its Weather Systems department. Weather Systems supports government and commercially-related weather prediction and disaster recovery resources.

Presently, PRC uses Livelink to collaborate and share knowledge across the Weather Systems department and plans to extend its implementation by creating an extranet for future applications.

"Before we implemented Livelink Intranet, we didn't have a systematic or centralized way of tracking our action items," says Doug McVicar, Vice President and General Manager, Weather Systems at PRC. "We chose Livelink because it combined the ability to track tasks and centralize a document library in one integrated, Web-based solution, allowing PRC employees to save time and increase their responsiveness to customers."

Livelink enables PRC employees to manage and share knowledge across the company and collaborate on projects without the additional training often required with new technology implementations. "In addition, Livelink takes collaboration one step further by enabling PRC to implement an extranet that will create a private network between customers and employees, increasing the speed of doing business," adds McVicar.

"We are delighted that PRC has chosen Livelink Intranet for its knowledge management needs within Weather Systems," says Tom Jenkins, CEO, Open Text Corporation. "PRC's adoption of Livelink further demonstrates the product's rapid market acceptance by the world's leading corporations."
