> TEAMate is the only server product for UNIX that
> combines both a Web and BBS interface in a single
> product.  Users may access a TEAMate server with the
> Web browser of their choice, a session based GUI client
> for Windows or Mac, a VT100 terminal or even by
> sending a mail message with an included query.  All
> information is dynamically indexed for immediate
> retrieval and the server generates HTML so you dont
> have to.
> Since TEAMate also works with our proprietary, session
> based client, you can provide your users with a client
> program customized exactly to your specifications, with
> your logo, look and feel, etc., that will operate across the
> Internet via TCP/IP or even over normal dial up service
> without a TCP/IP connection.  You receive an unlimited
> distribution license for our client when you license the
> server.

> We are now testing the next release of TEAMate that will

> TEAMate Phrase Search & User Defined Fields
> The latest release adds a flexible phrase search to the
> TEAMate search.  In addition this release supports user
> defined fields.  This means that if you need to define an
> additional field to be associated with an entry, you can
> easily do so.  A good example of this would be a
> classified ad where you needed to add a field for the price
> of the item.  With the new capability you can add the
> numeric field for price and your users will be able to
> search from a certain price to a certain price to locate
> exactly the information they need.  This capability is
> integral to TEAMate and does not require any add-on
> software.
