"Bynari Inc., the exclusive provider of cross-platform, Open Standards-based messaging and collaboration software for bridging the gap between Microsoft-based desktops and Unix/ Linux-based workstations in the enterprise, today introduced a greatly enhanced version of its TradeXCH client software application. TradeXCH (pronounced "Trade Exchange") is an easy to use and robust application which provides collaboration, messaging and calendar management functionality similar to Microsoft Outlook for Unix and Linux-based workstations and desktop systems."

"With TradeXCH, customers can: send/receive email, and manage multiple email accounts in a single mailbox; establish sophisticated filtering rules for incoming email; track and share business contacts utilizing robust contact management tools; share files/folders with colleagues; maintain multiple address books; share calendar and automatically request/ schedule meetings; and track action items on a built-in "to do" list. TradeXCH supports a number of messaging protocols, enabling a wide range of platforms to work together and supporting open communications across the enterprise. TradeXCH is immediately available for desktops/ workstations running X86 processor versions of Linux, and will be available soon for Solaris Sparc, Solaris X86, HP-UX and SCO UnixWare 7.1."

"Our new release of TradeXCH raises the bar in the arena of interoperability and GroupWare capabilities for mixed networks of Microsoft Windows and UNIX users," said Mike O'Dell, Chief Executive Officer of Bynari. "In this release we have integrated many of the features requested by our beta test partners, enhanced our interoperability with Microsoft Outlook, and improved the reliability, speed and resource utilization over our initial release of the product two months ago. We believe this product addresses the critical need in businesses today for an open, cross-platform, standards -based collaboration capability."
