L'Oreal Taiwan Chooses AXS-One to Meet SAP Archiving Needs

AXS-Link for SAP™ Addresses SAP Archiving, Performance and Disk Space Optimization

HONG KONG -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 28, 2006 -- AXS-One (AMEX: AXO), a leading provider of high performance records compliance management solutions, has been selected by cosmetics giant, L'Oreal, to provide a company-wide archiving solution. L'Oreal's first Asian implementation of AXS-Link for SAP, AXS-One's premier SAP archiving solution, has now been completed at the company's Taiwan branch.

AXS-Link for SAP is an integral part of the AXS-One Compliance Platform™. Certified by SAP, the cross-application solution provides SAP applications with archive and records management functionality, increasing system performance, optimizing IT consolidation and minimizing risk. AXS-Link for SAP seamlessly integrates with SAP using SAP ArchiveLink as well as SAP workflow and existing SAP security settings, ensuring that access to archived documents and data is transparent to the end users.

Recently ranked by BusinessWeek as one of the world's most innovative companies, L'Oreal views IT as providing significant enterprise value. According to Arthur Cheng, IT Manager of L'Oreal Taiwan, "The more our business grew, the more apparent it became that system capacity would soon reach storage space limitations and, more importantly, put our IT systems under pressure, preventing the organization from operating at optimum efficiency and productivity."

L'Oreal Taiwan implemented SAP as a strategic corporate application in 2001 and selected AXS-Link for SAP to securely manage all historical SAP content, including documents, data and images, before further pressure was put on their IT system. Understanding that performance levels and efficiency optimization in all core systems contribute significantly to their competitive advantages in the market, L'Oreal realized that an archiving solution was needed to combat database growth of 15 gigabytes per month resulting from 45% business growth in just one year.

Cheng continued, "We needed a solution that would allow us to continue using the SAP platform with maximum performance, and we found that AXS-Link for SAP could meet both our business and technical requirements. Its open systems architecture and platform independence also mean that our investment is protected, should we decide to change operating platforms in the future."

Kathleen Phillips, Regional Director, North Asia of AXS-One added, "Timely and efficient access to aged static data and print lists, in a manner which was transparent to the end users, was critical to L'Oreal Taiwan. Equally important was the need to keep software, hardware and operating costs at an absolute minimum, thereby reducing total cost of ownership (TCO) within the L'Oreal IT group. We are glad to have helped L'Oreal make the strategic investment needed to solve a tactical problem."

Cheng concluded: "AXS-Link for SAP's ease of use means that in less than three months, we have become self-sufficient. Going forward, we can manage our own SAP archiving requirements, with little, if any, consulting services required from AXS-One, all of which contributes to reducing our TCO. The positive experience of the Taiwan office paves the way for our teams in other markets to leverage AXS-Link for SAP and our relationship with AXS-One."
