Terabase Delivers Haystack Web


Danvers, Mass (June 2004) - Terabase Corporation has announced the release of Haystack Web for its client Information Handling Services (IHS).

This version, which is intended to work with the popular Microsoft Internet Explorer browser, is designed to provide maximum flexibility to those organizations that wish to avoid installing Windows applications on individual desktops.

Using the latest in AJAX technology (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML), Terabase has developed a highly flexible version of the popular Haystack for Windows application, thereby allowing software-locked customers the ability to run Haystack anywhere they want.

"Locked down environments such as Navy Marine Corps Intranet (NMCI) are difficult for traditional software vendors to support, as each application must be run through acceptance testing by the systems integrator." says Terabase President Thor Olson. "We're pleased that Haystack now allows users the flexibility of a Windows application with the ease of distribution of an Internet service."

In addition, Olson says, "These changes were important to IHS because the company is committed to responding to the evolving needs of its customers, which this version will allow for those more secure environments."

Haystack is the most powerful tool available to help reduce acquisition cycles times and total ownership costs. It is is designed to meet the needs of personnel in procurement and supply, logistics, engineering, contracting, sales and marketing, and material management. The service can be used in government locations including Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marine bases, and at commercial sites such as government contractors and companies doing competitive research or market analysis.

Haystack's powerful search engine and variety of indices access information from more than 40 government databases with information on 11.5 million items. It also includes information on more than 25 million procurement histories to help users find more readily available standards parts. Haystack for Windows Online further simplifies parts and logistics research with a batch search feature that generates information on thousands of items in just minutes.

Terabase Corporation develops high-end search-engine and database solutions for publishers and other information providers around the world. Experts on creating tools that maximize product performance, the company provides project management, system architecture, and development services. In addition, Terabase has created a number of proprietary technologies that combine programming tools and libraries to enable exceptionally fast searching of extremely large databases.
