Woburn, Mass., USA; Budapest, Hungary; Oslo, Norway (PRWEB) August 4, 2005
Ovitas, Inc. (North America), Ovitas AS (Scandinavia), and Ovitas Hungary, innovative providers of knowledge and content management solutions, have formed a strategic alliance to provide expanded services to their customers worldwide. Ovitas companies have developed such applications as an Interactive Electronic Technical Manual (IETM) for the US Marine Corps, an automated news classification system for the Hungarian News Agency, and a maintenance information portal for SAS Airlines. Ovitas companies are premier providers of software from empolis GmbH (a subsidiary of arvato, a Bertelsmann Company) in their respective territories.
The Ovitas International Network will allow each organization to provide additional services and solutions to their customers regardless of location. For example, Ovitas Hungary has over 10 years of experience in conversion of document data from legacy formats to SGML and XML based on work with leading reference publishers. These high quality services can be provided to OvitasÂ North American or Scandinavian customers efficiently and cost-effectively through the Ovitas International Network.
ÂWe are pleased to expand the Ovitas brand and our ability to provide additional services on time and on budget using international resources and expertise,Â explained Jeff Bettencourt, President of Ovitas, Inc. ÂOur strategic alliance will promote sharing of best design and implementation practices to benefit our customers.Â
Ovitas AS and Ovitas Hungary recently adopted the Ovitas name after becoming independent from former parent company empolis. ÂOvitas stands for customer- and industry-specific solutions delivered on a solid commercial software foundation,Â said Laszlo Domokos, founder of Ovitas Hungary. ÂIt was a natural fit for us to adopt the Ovitas brand and to strengthen our portfolio through this alliance.Â
