Manhasset, New York (PressExposure) December 26, 2007 -- RatchetSoft, LLC, maker of the innovative desktop integration platform Ratchet-X, announced today the release of Ratchet-X Community Edition.
Ratchet-X Community Edition is a free, full-featured version of the Ratchet-X platform. The driving force behind Ratchet-X is empowering software users to be more productive by allowing them to take greater control over their application integration needs. The basic value proposition comes from its ability to expand and enhance existing applications by transforming them from isolated âsilosâ of functionality and data into âmashupsâ that facilitate more integrated and accessible information across end users in an organization.
Ratchet-Xâs unique capability can easily incorporate information and features residing within web services, databases, web sites, electronic forms and other traditional desktop applications.
âFor some time, large organizations have leveraged the power of Ratchet-X to incorporate new functions into existing applications, â said Joe Labbe, CEO of RatchetSoft. âHowever, the most innovative uses of our platform have come from smaller organizations and independent developers. The release of Ratchet-X Community Edition is our way of sharing the big power of Ratchet-X with this vital community of smaller organizations.â
RatchetSoft also announced it is launching Ratchet-X Online to support the release. Ratchet-X Online is a free community-supported repository of assets that Ratchet-X users can access to link their favorite applications. âWhile many of our customers create their own assets, weâre seeing a dramatic increase in asset-sharing, which ultimately strengthens the platform,â said George Weihs, CTO of RatchetSoft. âRatchet-X Online is our first step towards cataloging these assets and encouraging viral growth.â
Coinciding with the release of Ratchet-X Community Edition, RatchetSoft is also releasing a suite of plug-ins based on several StrikeIron Marketplace web services. âWe applaud RatchetSoftâs continued efforts to bring the power of web services to the applications people already useâ said Bob Brauer, CEO of StrikeIron. âCombining StrikeIron data with RatchetSoft technology enables users to create a broad range of business solutions.â
Ratchet-X Community Edition will automatically come configured with the following StrikeIron Marketplace powered plug-ins: - Address verification - Business lookup - Government lookup - Residential lookup - Reverse phone lookup - Email address verification - Zip code lookup - ICD10 lookup
Pre-configured integrated applications include: - Salesforce - FreeCRM - ZohoCRM - Act2007 - Outlook 2003
