Mindbridge Software has announced the availability of their hosted Intranet solution: Intranet on Demand. The solution is designed to allow an organization to concentrate on the content and customization of the Intranet by enabling quick setup. Mindbridge Software handles all installation, upgrades, backups and recovery, patches, and other systems issues. Help and instructions are available for both users and administrators. Pricing is based on the number of users and the amount of storage space used on the host. Optional features include SSL encryption, special training, and use of a dedicated server. The hosted Intranet is fully transportable to an in-house server if a company decides to make such a move in the future. The functions available for Intranet on Demand are the same as those of IntraSmart, the Intranet software suite that runs on client company servers. They include: asset scheduler; company links; contact address book; content manager; department homepages; document library; document nominator; employee bulletin boards; employee directory; forms generator; frequently used Web sites; full text search in indexed locations; group calendar; and instant messaging. There is an introductory special available offering a free month of service for every month paid in advance. This offer will only be available through March of 2004.
