Smith Micro Unveils WebDNA™ Intranet Edition, Enabling Fast Deployment of Company Intranets

Oct 15, 2002
Newest Product in the WebDNA eBusiness Development Suite Supports Document Exchange, Company News, Photo Albums, Company Directories, Employee Benefits Forms and More

ALISO VIEJO, CA -- The Internet and Software Solutions division of Smith Micro Software, Inc. (Nasdaq: SMSI), a developer and marketer of a wide range of software and eBusiness solutions today announced the release of WebDNA™ Intranet Edition, the latest product in Smith Micro's WebDNA eBusiness Development Suite. WebDNA Intranet Edition enables companies of virtually any size to easily and cost-effectively deploy a rich, enterprise-level Intranet website, creating a platform for efficient exchange of documents, information, and ideas across the organization.

WebDNA Intranet Edition is based on Smith Micro's popular and highly successful Internet application generator, WebDNA. Using WebDNA's easy development and management tools, site administrators can effortlessly deploy a host of features and applications in minutes, including company news, event calendars, employee contact directories, classified ads, benefits forms, photo albums, career development sections, and more. What's more, WebDNA Intranet Edition supports privilege-based document exchange, which facilitates collaboration among departments and/or groups involved in complex projects and/or reports.

"WebDNA Intranet Edition is without a doubt one of the most robust, yet easy-to-use Intranet authoring and administrative solutions on the market today," said Chris Lippincott, general manager of the Internet and Software Solutions division of Smith Micro, Inc. "Webmasters and IT administrators alike will appreciate the flexibility and power of the product's feature set. Intranet Edition is designed to liberate site developers by allowing them to quickly roll out a full range of high productivity, enterprise-level tools as organizational needs dictate."

Designed for all Windows, Unix, Linux, Solaris, and Mac platforms including OS X Version 10.2 (Jaguar), WebDNA Intranet Edition is a secure, SSL-based development platform that allows companies to create a sophisticated environment for employee interaction. Human resource FAQs, handbooks, organizational charts, feedback/request forms, and other forms of critical information can be instantly updated. A search function makes locating and gathering important data easy as well.

Content Management
To expedite document exchange among departments and work teams, administrators using WebDNA Intranet Edition can easily create group-based privileges so that members can submit files for use by other participants in the group. Later in 2002, a new follow-on release of Intranet Edition will be available that supports direct Content Management without IT administrative involvement. Authorized employees in a specific workgroup will be able to "check out" a document or file, edit it as needed, then "check in" to re-post it on their particular area of the company Intranet. Department supervisors will maintain control of their portions of the site, approving any and all files before re-posting.

Free Upgrade Offer
As part of the WebDNA Intranet Edition unveiling, Smith Micro is announcing a free upgrade offer that allows companies to save money by purchasing Intranet Edition now for $3,499.95, then upgrade at no additional cost to the new Content Management version later this year. "By purchasing the new, lower-priced version now, our customers save money," said Lippincott. "They get WebDNA Intranet Edition at a lower price, then instead of paying $4,999.95 for the Content Management version, they receive the upgrade totally free."

WebDNA Intranet Edition is available for immediate purchase direct from Smith Micro. Promotional pricing is for a limited time only. For more information on WebDNA Intranet Edition, or any of the WebDNA eBusiness Development products, log on to
