Networking company Artisoft is to release software in September that will allow businesses to connect a number of different PCs, using diverse operating systems to NT servers.
The move is a departure for Artisoft, which has targeted small to medium sized businesses using MS-Dos, Windows 3.x, OS/2 and Windows 95 but according to marketing director Rob Aherne, research has shown that these users are migrating to NT.
He said: ?People can use NT to network machines but if they have invested in other platforms, like a lot of small to medium sized businesses have, this will give them a way to connect.?
He said Lantastic NT already had five million users installed worldwide and the decision to port its operating system software to the 32-bit platform was a recognition that small businesses were adopting this.
It is also a good opportunity for resellers, Aherne said: ?We have 757 resellers and for them this a is a big opportunity. One sells to 2,000 funeral directors and this product will help them,? he said. The company is also selling the product through Byte, PC World, Software Warehouse and Watford Electronics.
