Labrador's E-Retriever Fetches Intranet Information

Labrador Software, Inc. Tuesday launched its E-Retriever 1.0 software, made to retrieve content and applications on corporate intranets.

E-Retriever is distributed as a "black box" solution, connecting directly to a network. It offers immediate, one-to-one direct document or application retrieval, without having to type in lengthy, intricate URL addresses, said John Furrier, Labrador's chief executive officer.

"Our research indicated that corporate employees were spending more time on their company's intranet than they spend on the World Wide Web," Furrier said.

"But, until now, no firm had provided them with a way to quickly and easily get to the information they need without time-consuming searching, typing or browsing."

E-Retriever is priced at $40,000. Early adopter discounts are available for 1998 customers.
