United Planet, (www.unitedplanet.com), one of the leading developers of Enterprise Portal software in Europe, has launched the Intrexx Application Store, a comprehensive online shop for web-based business applications.

Designed to help companies extend the range of services that can be offered in an intranet or portal environment, the Intrexx Application Store provides easy access to powerful, ready-to-use web applications and templates that target individual business needs and functions.

The new Intrexx Application Store(www.unitedplanet.com/en/appstore) offers a variety of applications and layout templates, with more being added every day. Applications range from car pool management and travel expense accounting to project management and customer relationship management. The Store also offers a number of mobile applications for iPhone, Blackberry and other smartphones, making it easier to access important business data whilst out of the office.

Searching for the right application is simplified through the classification of software against key business functions (e.g. sales, marketing and HR) and by the rating of each application as either ‘Best rated,’ ‘Popular’ or ‘New release’.

According to Axel Wessendorf, managing director at United Planet: “The selection of web-based business applications available via the new Application Store will allow companies to find exactly the right application they need to manage specific business areas or to improve the efficiency of certain tasks and to take a ‘tailor-made‘ approach to software selection.

“In the future, the Application Store will also provide developers with an alternative route to market for new business applications. By registering for the forthcoming Intrexx Developer Program, developers will not only benefit from a free listing service but will also be able to set their own price for their applications. The Intrexx Application Store will provide an international sales and marketing channel for all developers, regardless of their size or the size of the market they are seeking to target.“

All of the applications featured on the Intrexx Application Store can be imported into an intranet or enterprise portal for immediate access throughout the company. They can be purchased via ClickandBuy, with pricing for smaller applications starting at EUR 10 and some applications available for free.

Licenses for both Intrexx Compact and Intrexx Professional can be obtained via the Application Store.
