Hessian Police Chooses Applix to Streamline Operations

Hessian Police Chooses Applix to Streamline Operations

Applix equips more than 14,000 Hessian Police Officers with its Desktop Productivity Suite Applixware(TM)

WESTBORO, MA -- (BUSINESS WIRE)-- July 26, 1999 -- Applix(R), Inc. (NASDAQ:APLX), a leader in decision support solutions for the Unix and Linux markets, announced that the Hessian Police Department in Wiesbaden, Germany has purchased 7,000 licenses of the modularly structured Applixware for AIX, the UNIX operating system.

Selection of Applixware was the result of the Hessians' evaluation of the product on the Linux platform. They later elected to deploy the Applixware Suite on their existing IBM AIX workstations, one of the many UNIX platforms supported by the Applixware product family. In choosing a platform-independent productivity solution, the police department reviewed Microsoft(R), Lotus(R) and Star(R). Applixware was selected based on its capability to integrate into existing applications such as Oracle(R), and can be smoothly introduced into the system of the Hessian police.

"We are pleased to announce this relationship with the Hessian Police Department," said Jit Saxena, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Applix, Inc. "It is clear that integrating existing systems and applications, while providing interoperability with external users is essential for the officers and the communities they serve."

According to the project leader of the Hessian State Criminal Police, the versatile system architecture and the open interfaces of the system, which enabled connection to the existing data bases of the APPLIX solution, were decisive factors for the Hessian Police in choosing the office suite Applixware. The modular structure of Applixware allows the user to create, edit, and analyze documents and graphics and send these via e-mail.

The software will be implemented within the workstation system for workflow and office automation, and be deployed throughout the month of July.
