Search and retrieval software supplier Fulcrum has added to its family of information retrieval products with a new document viewer designed to add high-fidelity viewing to Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0.
The company has agreed to provide a demonstration version of the product as an ActiveX control on the Internet Explorer Starter Kit CD-Rom, available this week.
Fulcrum claims the viewer will simplify the task of publishing existing corporate information on a Web server by allowing users to view documents with native formatting intact, without launching the native applications. Peter Klante, vice president of marketing at Fulcrum, said: ?In combination with our server-side search software, Fulcrum?s document viewer also allows users to search, view, manipulate and navigate the non-HTML information on their Intranets.?
David Fester, product manager for Microsoft Internet Explorer, said: ?Because Fulcrum?s viewer is built on ActiveX technologies, developers can use a wide range of programming languages and tools to make their applications and Web sites more compelling and engaging.?
The Fulcrum document viewer is designed to work with Internet Explorer 3.0 and Netscape browsers and is sold in quantity, beginning at packs of 20 for $995.
The commercial version of the ActiveX control is available from Fulcrum immediately, for use in custom SearchServer applications, and will be rolled out in versions designed specifically to work with other Fulcrum products like Fulcrum Find and Surfboard by the end of the year.
