Since its appearance in Australian Reseller News (ARN, January 28, page 1) BBR has enhanced its Software Directory to include direct Internet access to distributors' Web sites.
Making a connection to a Web site is as simple as clicking the right mouse button which then provides a link to the relevant distributor's Web site, reducing the time it would normally take for end users to surf the Internet.
According to BBR officials, such Web-based searches for distributor sites can take as little as three seconds. The other alternative -- providing the entire Software Directory and its 30,000 listings online -- proved impractical as retailers would have to connect to an external server for their searches rather than accessing information locally from their own desktop.
The Software Directory is distributed monthly on CD-ROM with subscriptions costing just $9 per week.
