Viapoint adds X1® Desktop Search Solution to organizer update

Connects organizer to enterprise desktop search

BURLINGTON, VT – November 15, 2005Viapoint Corporation, a pioneer in the emerging desktop organizer software market, today announced the availability of an update to the Viapoint Smart Organizer product including an adapter to the X1® Desktop Search solution and new viewer architecture to preview desktop resources. The free download is available at www.viapoint.com.

"X1's platform for enterprise desktop search complements our strategy to extend desktop organization to support collaboration in enterprise workflows," said Aaron Abend, CEO of Viapoint. "Our vision of the partnership is to provide enterprise solutions for searching and organizing information both on user desktops and to extend enterprise resources to the desktop."

The Viapoint X1 adapter makes Viapoint one of the first applications built upon X1's SDK (Software Developer Kit) recently released to strategic partners for creating value added solutions. The integration allows X1 desktop search users to build additional context for searching and to extend available post-search actions by saving items and groups of contacts found in searches into virtual folders for annotation and follow-up. Users benefit by extending the powerful X1 desktop search solution to make knowledge workers more productive in organizing their research and work.

"Developer partnerships are becoming increasingly important to our customers," said Josh Jacobs, president of X1 Technologies. "We are looking to companies like Viapoint to extend our platform in new and creative ways. Through our partnership with Viapoint we are able to add new ways for our users to build searches and to use search results to support their work."

The new Viapoint release also contains additional capabilities to the organizer. New capabilities include a new preview feature to view content from multiple applications while browsing items, tracking of recently viewed companies and contacts, and a quick find tool to quickly jump to selected virtual folders.

"I chose X1 over free desktop search offerings to provide me the best local searching capabilities and Viapoint offers the organizational tools that I need to keep track of deals with correspondences and tasks across clients, lawyers, and venture capitalists. By bringing these two products together I have a single tool with the power to keep track of my business and find information when I need it," said Dan Shmalo, a corporate lawyer from 360 Ventures.

The free version of Viapoint allows unlimited use of Viapoint's full feature set, allowing users to work more organized with files, RSS feeds and web links, but requires paid adapters for connectivity to popular email programs and CRM applications.
