Open Text Corporation introduced today Livelink Pinstripe, a Web search
engine designed specifically to meet the needs of business users.

management system, Livelink Intranet (scheduled for release in mid-1998).

databases more than twice as often as most search engines.

In addition to offering extensive search capabilities, Livelink Pinstripe
also aggregates additional business content, including information from such
partners as Forbes, Deja News, Net-Temps, and WhoWhere.
