NUREMBERG, Germany, July 29, 2009 - Open-Xchange, the leading provider of open source groupware, today announced the ability to consolidate social network communication in one central application with the availability of Open-Xchange Server 6.10.
· Integration of any kind of existing webmail accounts (from Google, Yahoo, etc.) into a folder in Open-Xchange, including merging of data.
· Contact details from social networks such as Facebook, LinkedIn or Xing will be added automatically to the Open-Xchange address book - giving users easy access to the latest contact information within their personal network.
· In addition, Open-Xchange users can share their data with other users in a controlled way -- without sending the information via e-mail. For example, with Social OX published data can be shared so there is no need to send large documents as an attachment via e-mail.
"Our customers depend on their email to run their business," said Miguel Ramos, manager of Hosting Product Development at Network Solutions®. "Social OX will give them the ability to engage with their customers and vendors regardless of the social network their contacts are using."
Anyone can try Social OX for free at this special preview website, http://ox.io.
Open-Xchange is installed by more than 3,500 companies and organizations worldwide. Furthermore, the Open-Xchange Hosting Edition is used by more than 10 million users worldwide as hosted business-class e-mail, along with personal information management (PIM), and full groupware.
