strategic alliance with Interface Software, Inc., a leader in relationship
intelligence solutions for professional services firms. As part of the

share and capitalise on any information resource - spanning relationship
intelligence, enterprise application data, content from external sources and
the Web."



The integration of InterAction with Citrix XPS offers law firms, accounting
firms, financial services organisations, management consultancies and other
professional services firms a packaged enterprise portal that unifies and
delivers secure access to the diverse sets of information professionals need
to enhance client service, identify new business opportunities and

information they need to do business, Citrix portal software is ideally
suited for professional services firms," said Barry Davis, vice president,
