US WEST !NTERPRISE Networking and Changepoint Corp. have joined to develop a new product allowing businesses to easily set up feature-rich intranet sites.

involv Intranet Team Edition is designed to allow businesses to create intranet sites that allow teams of 50 to 250 to cost-effectively collaborate on projects using the Web.

The product is an upgrade to Changepoint's involv Free Web Teaming product that had a 15-user limit.

"With involv Intranet Team Edition, we are giving our subscribers more of what they want. It also lets companies offer intranet-based self-service Web teaming solutions on a smaller scale than previously possible," said Gerry Smith, president and chief executive officer of Changepoint.

The new product features an improved user interface, eliminates banner advertising in the free version and provides advanced customization features.

USWEST, which currently hosts users of the free intranet product, is again partnering with Changepoint to host users of the team edition. USWEST said free version customers wanting to upgrade need only to fill out an upgrade form at the Free Web Teaming site.
