Australian specialist software distributor Manaccom has released WordBase, a database-driven system for filing and retrieving Microsoft Word documents.
According to Manaccom, it is the piece Microsoft left out of its word processing system. WordBase is designed to categorise and catalogue all Word files, thereby allowing users to find any document with the minimum of effort.
"With this package, it is virtually impossible to lose another document," claimed Manaccom managing director, Ian Mackay. "It's a comprehensive database that lets you quickly find a company or person along with their full address and electronic communications details."
Documents are filed by person and/or company and in date order. Memos are attached to each document, and this feature allows the user to enter follow-up information about every filed piece of information.
WordBase carries an RRP of $49. 95. It runs on any Pentium-level PC capable of supporting Windows 95/98/NT, and is expected to be available wherever Word is sold. According to Mackay, it has already received wide acceptance in the retail channel.
