Planet Intra Upgrades Intranet Solution

Planet Intra Wednesday unveiled an upgraded version of its intranet solution, with improved functionality and personalization.

Planet Intra 2.4 has been re-designed with a faster intranet engine, an improved user interface and increased customization capabilities. A color customization tool allows businesses' to build their intranet to be consistent with the image and brand of the company. The calendar and contact manager have also been updated to accommodate personal events and contacts for users within the organization.

Also, the "What's New" section, which formerly provided users with new uploaded documents and files, has been upgraded to display daily events pertinent to each individual employee and new postings from the discussion forum.

"In addition to all the functionality, an intranet should reflect the personality of a company," said Alan McMillan, chief executive officer of Planet Intra."Planet Intra's new customization features allow a company's Intranet to reflect its brand and image, as well as personalize the experience for its individual users."

Planet Intra 2.4 also includes a file recognition feature that identifies the file type and displays the appropriate icon. Planet Intra 2.4 now supports Windows 2000, in addition to Windows 95/98, NT 4.0, Solaris and Linux.
