Netscape has launched a custom Netcenter portal service for enterprises.
The new product provides users with portal content, services and vertical market applications.
The aim of portal sites is to provide hooks into other sites and deliver personalised information and services to customers.
While most simply direct people to static Web pages, Netscape claimed Custom Netcenter provides companies with up to the minute news, free email, stock quotes and company specific content and services such as personal billing or human resources information.
Mike Homer, executive vice president and general manager of Netscape?s Netcenter division, said: "Custom Netcenter represents the next wave of portal technology because it provides a new platform that empowers businesses to deliver the products and services that their consumers care about and need."
The product is based on the Netscape Personalization Engine and can be customised for vertical markets, specific employees, customers or business partners.
Companies already previewing Custom Netcenter include Coca-Cola, Mazda, Texas Instruments and the US Department of Defense. Lucent Technologies said it plans to use the technology to create a vertical portal. This will act as an interactive gateway for prototyping Web based wireless Internet applications.
Custom Netcenter will cost $3 to $10 per user per year for an annual subscription.
