Open Source CRM Integration for Novell® GroupWise®

Open Source CRM Integration for Novell® GroupWise®

Edmonton, AB and Chicago, IL – October 28, 2008 – Omni Technology Solutions and Chicago-based CRM consultancy, Intelestream, are pleased to deliver Riva CRM Integration™ for Novell GroupWise. Riva enables Novell customers to enhance their existing GroupWise investment by delivering transparent, bi-directional, server-side integration for leading open-source CRMs, such as SugarCRM, info@hand and Bluefin. GroupWise customers faced with recession worries can leverage their existing investment in Novell technologies and benefit from open source solutions to cut costs and drive more value out of their existing technology investment.

"Companies that thrive, rather than merely survive, in this tough economic climate will be those companies that extract as much value as possible from their existing technology investments," said Aldo Zanoni, CEO of Omni. "Existing and new Novell GroupWise customers benefit from the lowest-cost, most stable and most secure messaging and collaboration solution. But, until recently, customers looking for integration for leading CRMs and collaboration applications like Microsoft SharePoint™ were out of luck – there were no GroupWise integration options available. This resulted in companies being faced with financially irresponsible, "rip-and-replace" decisions and migrations. Riva, combined with Intelestream's deep CRM expertise, will allow customers to deploy, customize and leverage the cost advantage of open source CRMs with confidence."

"Intelestream is constantly looking for ways to expand its business and drive more value for customers," said Ray Stoeckicht, Director of Sales at Intelestream. "We chose to partner with Omni , the leading Novell developer in the CRM integration space, to provide CRM deployment and customization expertise for GroupWise customers. This Omni-Intelestream initiative will allow Novell customers to benefit from best-of-breed GroupWise integration and our extensive experience tailoring CRMs to fit customers' environments and unique needs."

Novell customers are invited to contact Omni or Intelestream to learn how GroupWise has become the industry's first integrated collaboration and CRM client. Riva allows GroupWise messages to be quickly and easily archived to CRM accounts, opportunities, quotes and support cases. Riva delivers transparent, two-way, server-side synchronization of GroupWise and SugarCRM appointments, phone calls, tasks, notes and address books on all GroupWise clients (Windows®, Linux®, Mac OS® X, WebAccess™, Evolution™, IMAP, Outlook®, BlackBerry® and GroupWise® Mobile Server devices).

Riva's advanced integration allows GroupWise emails to be automatically converted into CRM opportunities, quotes or cases, saving end-users time from manually copying data from one application to the other.
