Frontier Technologies Corp, based in Mequon, Wisconsin plans to offer the first ready-to-use system for operating an Internet- connected network on the internal networks of corporations. Frontier said its Intranet Genie product was designed to act as a single source for finding information inside and outside of companies, based on what it calls its universal meta-data interface. Intranet Genie is targeted at small and medium-sized companies that are seeking to do business via the Internet, but do not have large budgets to invest on in-house computer network experts. Frontier is working with resellers Ingram Micro Inc and Merisel Inc to distribute its product, in contrast to other such software which is largely given away free over the Internet. The system is optimized to work on computers running Windows NT, the company said. It comes with Frontier’s own browser and Web management software but it is also compatible with Netscape Communications Corp’s Navigator and Microsoft Corp’s Information Server and other Internet products. Internet Genie will be available in the second quarter of 1996; pricing will be announced then, the company said.
