Sequoia Software Corporation announced agreements with OfficeMax.com, biztravel.com, and 401Kafe for integrating their Web-based services with Sequoia’s XML Portal Server (XPS). Collectively, OfficeMax.com’s office products and services, biztravel.com’s full-service online travel capabilities, and 401Kafe’s online benefits planning information fall into the category of “populist applications” because they are useful to the broadest range of corporate users. By integrating these online applications within XPS, Sequoia is ensuring its customers’ employees will be more enthusiastic about adopting the portal as their primary point of interaction with corporate content. This in turn will drive overall use of the portal, increasing the return on the corporate investment. Sequoia has signed a letter of intent with biztravel.com to integrate the biztravel.com service with XPS. The relationship is intended to give XPS end users immediate access to tools for planning, booking and managing travel arrangements. Based on an agreement with mPower, the parent company of 401Kafe.com, Sequoia will offer its customers integrated access to the 401Kafe site as a content component of XPS. 401Kafe is a community resource for 401(k) participants, providing news, articles, FAQs and discussion forums designed to enhance an individual’s ability to grow the value of their 401(k) investments. www.biztravel.com, www.OfficeMax.com, www.sequoiasoftware.com, www.401kafe.com
