A UK start up has developed a product that enables consumers to access and manange their email via the Web using a range of wireless devices.
Peramon, which was set up by former members of Digital UK Alta Vista?s development team, has come up with Lexicos, a service it believes will fast carve a niche for itself because it is platform and device independent.
The company is expecting a large take up of Lexicos from mobile phone companies, telecos and PDA makers.
The software enables the indexing of an individual's personal domain. A key word search allows information to be kept according to the user's habits and choice ? either very unstructured or neatly filed. Retrieval is via one keyword. The initial standard release of Lexicos will be for Java, HTML and ?handheld? interfaces.
?Lexicos is the first of an exciting range of groundbreaking Web based applications that will provide a practical remedy to the information overload many of us are experiencing,? commented David Townsend, managing director of Peramon Technology.
Lexicos will be sold, deployed and supported through partners ranging from resellers, Vars and solution providers up to very large ISPs. Annual charges range from #20 per user for the small/departmental business edition, to #2 per user for very large ISP populations.
Peramon Technology was set up with #2.5 million from the Royal Bank of Scotland?s venture capital arm.
