AXS-One Inc., a provider of records compliance management solutions, unveiled AXS-LinkT for SAP 1.5, the latest version of its SAP archiving and imaging solution. The announcement comes on the same day that AXS-One announces a strategic agreement with leading SAP integrator, Dolphin IT-Project and Consulting Corporation, as well as significant international customer wins at enterprise SAP accounts.

Customer Wins

Certified by SAP earlier this year, the AXS-Link for SAP solution is demonstrating increasing sales momentum having now been selected for SAP document and data archiving by global enterprises spanning multiple industries, including manufacturing, utilities, mining, high-tech and public sector. Significant new customers include:

•  Mantrack, a privately owned bureau for SAP HR/Payroll services based in Australia and New Zealand

•  Tenaga Nasional Berhad, Malaysia's largest electric utility company, serving more than six million customers in the region

•  BPB Gypsum, the world leader in the supply of plasterboard and gypsum plasters operating 90 manufacturing plants and serving markets in over 50 countries

All of these are new customers for AXS-One and significant wins against established vendors in this market.

To support and accelerate its SAP archiving market penetration in North America, AXS-One has formed a strategic partnership with Dolphin IT-Project and Consulting Corporation, which will enable Dolphin to implement AXS-One solutions. Dolphin is recognized as an industry leader in SAP Data and Document Archiving, SAP Business Workflow and Document Management implementations, working with large SAP implementations such as Anheuser-Busch, Sigma Aldrich and Rockwell Collins. Through its relationship with Dolphin, AXS-One will be able to leverage the firm's extensive SAP footprint and expertise. The two companies will work together to deliver secure archiving solutions and associated services for SAP data and documents.

"AXS-One has established itself as a leading provider of compliant, scalable archiving and content management solutions for the enterprise market, and we are pleased to be working with the company to jointly attract and serve SAP customers," said Dr. Werner Hopf, CEO and President of Dolphin.

Organizations running SAP include large enterprises in highly regulated industries that face stringent compliance and governance challenges-many pertaining specifically to the massive volumes of data and documents produced daily by SAP applications. As an integrated component of the AXS-One Compliance PlatformT, AXS-Link for SAP 1.5 is designed to address these issues by delivering secure, scalable and auditable document and data archiving.

Version 1.5 of the AXS-Link for SAP solution offers significantly tighter integration between SAP data and the AXS-One Compliance Platform and AXS-One's Central data archival repository. As a result, by securely archiving SAP data and documents within the AXS-One Platform, organizations can increase system performance, reduce hardware and administrative costs and improve their business processes. In addition, through the use of AXS-One's Compliance Platform, organizations can begin to manage the risk associated with retaining and managing electronic records and transactions generated by SAP in combination with other corporate records. Additionally, legal case management, discovery, retention, disposition and destruction capabilities are all present through the use of the platform. This allows organizations to apply business-specific policies and achieve auditable compliance with industry and governmental regulations across all of their business systems.

"The AXS-Link for SAP solution is being well received by the market, as demonstrated by our initial major wins," said Bill Lyons, CEO AXS-One Inc. "With 12 million users and over 67,000 installations worldwide, the SAP market is very attractive to us and with AXS-Link for SAP as an integral part of the AXS-One Compliance Platform, and through our strategic partnership with Dolphin, AXS-One is well positioned to capitalize on this important market."
