HotOffice Technologies Inc. Friday announced distribution deals with Internet provider ZipLink LLC and reseller The ASCII Group for its HotOfice Web-based intranet service.

The product allows customers to instantly set up an intranet using any PC and a dial-up Internet connection.

"Our members are always looking for better ways to service their small business customers and HotOffice brings the perfect solution to the table," said Jerry Koutavas, director of business development for The ASCII Group.

"ZipLink and HotOffice will be the perfect combination for our small business customers," said Ron Lipof, Ziplink's vice president of marketing. "By adding the powerful communication and collaboration features of HotOffice to our existing lineup of Internet access services, users can turn the Internet into a true business tool."
