Lotus is hoping the PC version of its eSuite productivity suite will rescue the product, after the network computer (NC) version faltered due to poor take-up of the NC itself.
When Lotus launched originally launched eSuite, it chose to target the NC thin client market first. Company chief executive officer Jeff Papows admitted this week that the strategy had not been as successful as expected.
The PC version of eSuite will now ship in October, a month later than planned, and Papows said this will help the application gain wider acceptance.
eSuite is a Java based application family consisting of Workplace and Devpack, a Java development kit. Workplace includes email, a spreadsheet, calender, chart, presentation graphics, and an address book.
