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.
