Making OpenOffice.org 3.0 available through a browser should also help accelerate its adoption by an even broader user base. Users can introduce OpenOffice.org 3.0 to others via email, invite them to discover OpenOffice.org with just one click, and can give a personal tour of the program in realtime. Invitations are sent via email and allow access in either read only or full edit mode, simply by clicking on a link in the email.

Using Ulteo's service, users can exploit features of OpenOffice.org which may be missing from their current desktop software. For example, OpenOffice.org can read and write Microsoft Office files, and generate .pdf format files without requiring any additional software. OpenOffice.org also reads and writes documents in OpenDocument Format, the ISO-approved standard for office documents, which can only be read in Microsoft Office after installing a plug-in.

Ulteo will release the first installable version of their online software delivery and management solution as a full Open Source plateform on early November. As a result, corporations can easily manage and offer their choice of applications to corporate users while ensuring a low total cost of ownership (TCO).
