Baxi Group Chooses New Web Platform from Open Text



    Website Launched with RedDot, the Open Text Web Solutions Group

    WOKINGHAM, Berkshire, UK, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - Open Text(TM) Corporation
(NASDAQ:   OTEX, TSX: OTC), a global leader in enterprise content management
(ECM), announced today that Baxi Group, one of Europe's biggest manufacturers
of domestic and commercial water and space heating systems, has teamed up with
Freestyle Interactive and Open Text's Web Solutions Group RedDot, to launch
new websites for its Baxi brand in the UK and Italy.
    The Open Text web content management system allows employees from across
the company to create, edit and approve web content before it goes live on the
website. Baxi Group's marketing departments are now able to take complete
control of all online output and messaging, which will reduce the cost and
time associated with outsourcing web management to third-party agencies.
    Baxi Group worked closely with RedDot, Open Text's Web Solutions Group, a
dedicated team of web solution experts, and Open Text business partner
Freestyle Interactive, which helped with the design, build, hosting and
implementation of the new website, incorporating the latest web technologies
from Open Text.
    Luke Vanhegan, Group IT Development Manager at Baxi Group, said: "For a
brand-led organization like Baxi Group, our online offering needs to
accurately reflect our visions and corporate identity. The new-look website
will not only enhance the way our organization communicates with consumers,
installers, suppliers and specifiers, but will also dramatically change the
way we approach managing our online content."
    He continued: "Using Freestyle to design and execute the websites in the
Open Text environment has worked very well for us. Our partnership with
Freestyle and Open Text will enable us to develop our online strategy in
greater depth across the Group."
    Andy Bellinger, Country Manager for RedDot in the UK commented: "We are
delighted that Baxi Group has chosen Open Text's RedDot as its preferred web
content management partner. Companies are increasingly looking for rapid,
affordable and dynamic ways of delivering their corporate communications and
messaging across their global websites and we are confident that the new
system will immediately transform the way Baxi Group does business."
