TARRYTOWN, NY, June 12, 2006 – Open-Xchange Inc. today announced that InTech Solutions Inc. has joined the company as a strategic System Integration & training partner with operations in New York.

Open-Xchange is the market leader with a fully integrated messaging and collaboration solution. OX 5.0 is a mature product with 11 integrated collaboration modules that allows for easy migration and integration to an open source environment – allowing IT administrators to enjoy state-of-the-art collaboration without changing existing infrastructure components, i.e. databases, directory services, message transfer agents, e-mail servers or web-servers. End users can keep their favourite mail and groupware client -- most often Outlook, but also open source clients such as Kontact.

InTech Solutions brings significant systems integration and training expertise to Open-Xchange with an established base of customers throughout the North Eastern United States. Previously, InTech Solutions has been instrumental in developing and training users for Novell / Suse Linux as a top tier partner.

“Having InTech Solutions’ deep experience is key now as Open-Xchange enters the next stage of accelerating growth through the North Eastern market,” said Dave Simpson, Vice President, North America, Open-Xchange, Inc. “Adding this experience to the top open-source Exchange alternative will make all the difference.”

“Open-Xchange is positioned well in the SMB market and replaces Microsoft’s Exchange application while still integrating with popular clients such as Outlook” said Bob Brentson, President of InTech Solutions Inc. “Additionally, features such as permissioning and common data repositories address knowledge based customers such as health care, legal and financial markets.”

About Open-Xchange
Open-Xchange enables easy migration and integration to an open source environment – allowing IT administrators the ability to double the level of collaboration while reducing the total cost of ownership by more than 50%, without changing existing infrastructure components, i.e. databases, directory services, message transfer agents, e-mail servers or web-servers.

Enterprise environments no longer have to be trapped with software that is not extensible. Open-Xchange offers a new solution to the age-old problem with its innovative OXtender. Developed to publish internet standards using open source APIs and interface extensions, OXtender integrates simply and efficiently into an existing IT infrastructure. If desired, the OXtender can even be extended by ISVs to provide fax, VoIP, or CRM solutions, for example. Extension, for SAMBA, Wiki or more exotic uses, is also possible through the creativity of the Open Source community where OXtender originated.
