The UK arm of Kansas City-based Innovative Software is set to launch a Xenix version of the Smart office automation package in the UK this September. Smart, a package which integrates word processing, spreadsheet, database and communications facilities, has long been available under PC-DOS in the States, and over the last year has been sold in the UK from Innovative Software’s headquarters in Wandsworth. The implementation under Santa Cruz Operation Xenix was made, according to Marketing Manager Robin Selwood because that’s the way the market is going. The Xenix version will be much the same as Smart under PC-DOS, although Selwood admits the graphics capabilities will be more limited. The company, which has been established seven years and now employs over 200 people in the US, has just announced turnover of $18.9m over the last year. Some 35 people are employed in the UK, but future plans include more staff and a move to upmarket Sunbury in Middlesex.
