IN-BOX DIRECT DELIVERS BEST OF WEB


OCTOBER 19-21: Visit Netscape In-Box Direct and take advantage of an amazing array of Web-rich interactive content, delivered right to your mailbox. In-Box Direct maximizes Netscape Navigator 3.0's ability to receive pictures, video, audio, and more.

Netscape unveiled a new line of intranet solutions for an expanding market of rich, open email and groupware. Using Netscape Communicator client software and Netscape SuiteSpot 3.0, corporate customers can build and manage full-service intranets.

Recent independent studies by Zona Research and Forrester Research estimate Netscape's share of the Web server market at 80 percent. Analysts attribute Netscape's lead to its wide range of server solutions and cross-platform architecture.

Netscape intranet customers are already realizing a 1000 percent return on investment in less than three months, according to a recent study by International Data Corporation (IDC). IDC also documented an astoundingly swift time to payback for these companies, with savings and ROI typically beginning as early as six weeks after deployment.

Netscape announced a comprehensive strategy to "embrace and integrate" existing Microsoft platforms and technologies in Netscape client and server software and the Netscape ONE platform. Netscape's action will help customers unify their existing environments with their intranets to deliver a seamless experience.

THE MAIN THING: MANY HAPPY RETURNS
Jim Barksdale, President and CEO

In previous columns I've talked about the benefits intranets offer to businesses. Well, now I'm happy to report just how valuable these intranets are. The preliminary report from a study International Data Corporation has undertaken shows that Netscape-based intranets offer companies in many industries a high return on investment (ROI). In fact, the businesses studied are gaining the highest ROIs IDC has ever calculated. ... One of our customers in the study, Cadence Design Systems, had an ROI measured at more than 1700 percent. Cadence uses a Netscape-based intranet as the cornerstone of its sales support system. The system, called OnTrack, solves problems businesses have been experiencing since the days of Willie Loman - getting sales leads, meeting quotas, and generating new business. OnTrack provides supporting materials, custom applications, and reference information to sales reps for each step of the sales process. These are databases that already exist within the company - Cadence simply put them up and made them available via the same universal client, Netscape Navigator, that everybody already has. Sales reps can also use Netscape Navigator to show demos and presentations. ... Other businesses had similarly high ROIs. ...
