"Essentus International Inc. today announced that the Essentus Supply Chain Management Suite now supports Linux, the Unix-like operating system popular for use with network servers."

"Essentus has tested all of its modules (Sourcing, Demand Management and Merchandising) on the award-winning Red Hat Linux 6.2, the latest release of the operating system from Red Hat, Inc. (NASDAQ:RHAT). The environment that runs Essentus Express, a business solution for small- to medium-sized apparel and footwear manufacturers, importers, distributors and retailers, also supports Linux."

"Linux has been prominent on many computer platforms for quite some time now, and its recognition is on the rise," said Mr. Leslie Belcher, vice president of customer satisfaction and quality of Essentus. "Because of its popularity, we have the potential to expand our customer base considerably. And because it's supported by free open-source software, Linux's applications can be customized to fit the user's needs. Another plus is that Linux itself is available as freeware, so small to medium-sized companies achieve a reduced cost of ownership while gaining the benefits of our products."
