LANtastic network operating system firm Artisoft Inc says its plan to become a multi-product company is working well and its focus on Windows NT-compatible products is putting it back on track to reach profitability. The Tucson, Arizona company has announced a series of upgrades and new products. Catering for the small business market, Artisoft has upgraded its original product, the LANtastic operating system (CI No 3,168) to make it NT compatible. It has added greater security capabilities and enabled NT workstations and servers to access and share files. Artisoft’s senior vice president and general manager of the networking product group, Olivier Zitoun revealed plans to introduce the Intelligent Phone System. He described it as a revolutionary system and said: For the first time we will merge the telephone and the PC. The system will go into beta testing in the next couple of months and will feature an advanced voice mail system, built in call center, interactive voice response and intelligent call management, among other things. Artisoft already has its Infofast telephony product which has been updated to support Windows 95 and NT, supporting voice, fax and web documents. It has also announced new products catering for the internet. I.Share enables internet and intranet access to everyone on a network via one, shared connection. The company says the product has been designed to enable small companies to have access to a transparent, and cheap service. Artisoft has also announced remote access products and says as far as it is concerned small business is big business. Last month the company announced losses for the third quarter of $3.7m down from losses of $6.5m last time (CI No 3,167). LANtastic can be downloaded from the Artisoft web site now at http://www.artisoft.com, and will be available on general release from September.
