Woburn, MA Inmagic, Inc., a leading developer of library automation and information management software solutions, announced the release of DB/Text WebPublisher Lite, a Windows NT-based Web publishing application.

DB/Text WebPublisher Lite, which is a single database version of DB/Text WebPublisher, will make it more affordable for corporate libraries, information resource centers, and individual departments to mount their information on the Internet or corporate Intranet. DB/Text WebPublisher Lite can be used to publish, manage and maintain text, image or a multimedia database.

DB/Text WebPublisher Lite can only be used with Inmagic's most current buildware, DB/TextWorks Version 4. With these two elements in place, a new customer would be able to automate a library and bring it to the Web for under $5,000.

For current customers, DB/Text WebPublisher Lite will be priced at $2,500 until June 30 and $3,000 thereafter.

Product Possibilities

DB/Text WebPublisher Lite will allow:

  • Special libraries to mount their catalog on the Internet or Intranet;
  • Non-profits an affordable way of developing a presence online;
  • Companies with existing Intranets the option of publishing additional information on a secure extranet

"We believe it is imperative for a library to be able to respond to the end user's need for desktop access," said Phillip Green, President and CEO of Inmagic. "So it is our goal to get 100 per cent of our users on the Web. We believe DB/Text WebPublisher Lite will go a long way towards making that happen.

"Clearly, it is vital for organizations to make information available to employees on a 24/7 basis. DB/Text WebPublisher Lite makes that possible for a lot more companies."

DB/Text WebPublisher Lite is easy to implement so information management professionals can control their information with a minimum of assistance from MIS.

DB/Text WebPublisher Lite can act as a company's foundation for building a presence on the Web or Intranet. As a company's needs grow, it will be able to migrate to the full-fledged DB/Text WebPublisher.

If DB/Text WebPublisher Lite is purchased for the purpose of mounting a catalog on the Web, the user will have several options as to how to set up the user interface.

If they decide to customize the user interface themselves, they might find it helpful to use DB/Text for Libraries' query screens and report forms (designed for the Web) as a model. Or, the Inmagic consulting team can help customize screens and reports for specific needs.

"We're very pleased with the release of DB/Text WebPublisher Lite," said Ken Noble, co-owner of Crew-Noble Information Services and an Inmagic dealer located in Danville, CA. "It will allow more of our customers to get started putting their textbases on the Web."
