Software developer Liberty Corporate Services is looking for resellers interested in selling its new MessageStream electronic directory and messaging program.
Greg Twemlow, director of business and technology for Liberty, said MessageStream is aimed at medium to large companies wishing to replace their printed company directory with an online version which can be accessed by employees on a network.
The directory may be used to hold company information such as personnel data, employee phone numbers and locations.
The software was developed over the last year under a licence from American company Verisoft, allowing Liberty to develop and market the technology worldwide.
MessageStream is available in three configurations with varying features, the most sophisticated allowing electronic messages to be sent from the MessageStream server to pagers and digital mobile phones listed in the directory. The same message may be sent to groups of people in the directory. The next version of MessageStream due to be released in June will have an e-mail facility.
Twemlow said Liberty is currently selling the software direct but is interested in hearing from resellers dealing with the top 100 corporates or large government departments and who have in-house client server technology expertise or understanding. Liberty will provide product support for resellers and their clients.
