Open-Xchange 5 - Features & Functions
User friendliness today is about how you manage an application and who gets access to data and functionality
The number of features no longer defines functionality. In fact, removing unused functionality is increasingly important for enterprise performance. Open-Xchange was designed with this concept in mind. Open-Xchange lets you define the modules that make sense for your business. Each user can be given access to only those features that he or she needs to get their work done.
The ability to easily configure functionality based on the users' roles and their area of responsibility vastly increases the acceptance and usability of Open-Xchange. Management selects from the complete range of features those modules that are relevant to a specific employee, a department or the whole company - tasks, bookmarks, calendar, contact and more. Users are not overwhelmed by a multiplicity of irrelevant features, but find the exact right configuration on their desktop. Training is reduced to a minimum.
And you can change the feature/function configuration at any time. Add a new module whenever you think the organization is ready for it. Or change a group of users access to information when conditions change.
The ability to link different kinds of data to different functions and tasks is one of the hallmarks of Open-Xchange 5 - and an important differentiator via-a-vis competitive products. Open-Xchange sets a new benchmark in usability by incorporating and expanding on the Shared Folders concept popularized by MS Exchange. Users will find in a folder all the information related to a project or workflow inclusive of e-mails, contacts, appointments and documents. This ability to link data to tasks is a step-function improvement in team productivity.
Open-Xchange solves a further problem related to the current overload of information, namely how to find the needed information and create relationships with other information in the system. For example, which documents belong to which person? When is the next checkpoint in the project? How does the commentary in a forum relate to a checkpoint or project or document?
Open-Xchange 5 solves the information overload problem in two ways: by simply linking data objects (through menus and 'drag-and-click') and through a user friendly search function that lets the user quickly find what he or she is looking for in volumes of unstructured data.
Everything right in front of you. Everything at your fingertips. Whether it is your appointments or tasks and projects or new emails, Open-Xchange puts all your key information on a single page. When you get back to your desk or laptop, whether you have been away on business or pleasure, the portal module will show you what has happened since you left, sorted by data type, on one easy-to-navigate page. And of course, all your alerts and headlines will be linked to background documents, attachments and data. There is no faster or easier way to keep track of your life.
Which team is meeting, when, where and for how long? The calendar module simplifies the coordination of complex team meetings: Free/Busy information shows the availability of all participants as well as resources such as conference rooms and overhead projectors. Open-Xchange can automatically determine the next availability window for your team members based on parameters that you picked. All participants - whether they are internal or external - will be sent an email invitation - automatically. Team members can accept or reject the meeting request. Using the Team View, you can get an overview of all the calendar entries for your team on a particular day with all the relevant information linked. Missed appointments will become a thing of the past. Everyone will have the most current information and the same view of resources such as parking spaces and conference rooms.
In the Internet Age, we all struggle with the same things -- whether we work in small businesses or large enterprises. Who is my contact person at company X? Does anyone have the cellphone number of person Y? Who was the last person to speak with Ms. Z at customer Q? How can I get access to the contact information of the new hires? How can I process an email to our top 100 clients?
The solution to all of these dilemmas can be found in the Contact module of Open-Xchange 5. Global address book, project-related internal and external contacts, or privacy-protected personal contacts, all types of contacts can be managed using the Categories function. And best of all, contacts can be linked based on their relationship to you.
It isn't easy to manage a team. Just to get an overview of the meetings and participants needed to reach a milestone is hard. With Open-Xchange working for you, things will get easier. You'll have access to lots of helpful lists - project lists, task lists, delegation lists -- that will let you sort and prioritize your work. And don't worry if a task needs to be linked to a document. Simply create an attachment and paste it to a Task and you are done!!!
Today nearly every company places a great deal of emphasis on teamwork. Well-managed teams are highly productive and help the enterprise win in the marketplace. But it is often difficult to organize and manage a team. Specialized software that promises to automate project management often falls short of expectations because it is complicated and difficult to learn and use. What really is needed is a project module that everyone can use because it is designed to be intuitive. A project management tool that lets people get access to the information that they need to do their job, whether or not that information is an email, calendar entry, document, presentation or open forum. A platform that keeps everyone on the same page because they all are working off the same information.
Who has the latest version of the company or client presentation? Who is currently working on that document? How can I access that document if I am off-site at a convention?
Up until now, the solution to document management involved a big, expensive system. Now, Open-Xchange delivers the most important document management functionality at a fraction of the price. By concentrating on those features that really make work faster, Open-Xchange puts document management within reach of businesses of all sizes. Whether it is automatic version control or locking documents while they are being edited or quick retrieval of documents from MS Office or MS Explorer, Open-Xchange lets you work with documents using familiar tools and in intuitive ways. Plus it gives you access to the documents that you need over the Internet quickly and securely from all over the world - based on your access rights, of course.
Did that email with the customer proposal arrive yet? Do you need to quickly retrieve your email while you are on the road or visiting clients? Webmailer is the module that lets you access your company's mail server from any where in the world without worrying about security or computer viruses. Naturally, it is based on IMAP 4 so your inbox will be structured exactly like it always is.
In addition, with Webmailer, you can use the company's common address book, complete with distribution lists and electronic signatures. And you can send email while you are on the road using your normal return address. Webmailer supports a wide range of formatting tools.
Not everyone in your organization will use the advanced features of Knowledgebase/Bookmarks/Forums/Bulletin Boards but it is nice to know that they are there if they are needed. The generation of new ideas can get a boost if employees or groups of employees have access to a knowledge
