Xandros and CSB-System Offer Linux-Based Enterprise Resource Planning

CSB-System Ready for Xandros Linux Server

NEW YORK, NY and GEILENKIRCHEN, Germany -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 20, 2007 -- Xandros, the leading provider of easy-to-use Linux desktop, server and management solutions, and CSB-System AG, one of the leading vendors of industry-specific Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) systems, today announced the availability of Linux-based ERP systems for the efficient control of corporate and work processes. The systems deployed on Xandros servers target batch and process-oriented industries, plus retail and logistics sectors. The comprehensive turnkey solutions include order processing, goods receiving, stock removal, batch processing, order control, route optimization, and related processes.

"In assembling comprehensive Linux solutions for everyday industry use, three criteria were uppermost in the tests conducted by our systems engineers: stability, compatibility, and usability. We found the Debian-based Xandros Server to be rock-solid, highly compatible with existing industry infrastructures, and with a centralized management console that makes it very easy to administer," said Dr. Peter Schimitzek, CEO of CSB-System. "This means that we can expect a smooth system migration with few end-user concerns when delivering solutions based on Xandros Server, resulting in savings to our customers, while minimizing our implementation and servicing expenses."

"It's exciting to see that CSB-System, a leader in ERP solutions, has chosen our platform," said Andreas Typaldos, Xandros CEO. "Xandros Server with its workflow automation and remote graphical interface is especially suited for departmental and line administrators. It's most gratifying to see CSB putting our enterprise tools to use in their critical real-time ERP systems."

Xandros created the first Linux server to provide a powerful platform for enterprise administrators and SMBs with little or no Linux experience. The award-winning Xandros Server, featuring workflow automation and centralized, remote administration, compliments the company's award-winning desktop, deployment, and management software to complete a full end-to-end product line.
