The IBM Lotus Symphony suite--which is available at no
charge--can help you take back control of your IT budget while
giving most users the tools they need to excel at their jobs.
Designed to handle the tasks that most people perform in a
professional setting, IBM Lotus Symphony tools enable users
to create, edit and share word processing documents, spread-
sheets and presentations.
IBM Lotus Symphony software supports OpenDocument Format (ODF) and is designed for mixed environments. So users can share documents, presentations and spreadsheets that are in the Microsoft Office format or in ODF-compliant applications and solutions. That way, you can provide users the tools they need with fewer sacrifices. Moreover, power users, such as those in the finance department, can continue to rely on Microsoft Excel while those who use spreadsheets for simpler tasks can use Lotus Symphony Spreadsheets, for example. Best of all, you can even make sure that every single computer user has access to office productivity applications without having to invest in costly licenses. Moreover, because IBM Lotus Symphony software supports ODF, your organiza- tion can free itself from specific vendors and can access, use and maintain documents over the long term without concern for ongoing licensing and royalty fees.
