Upgrade Adds E-Mail Marketing FeaturesWeb Crossing Inc., San Francisco, has released an upgraded edition of its software that helps Internet sites build community boards. The new version offers an enhanced package of e-mail marketing capabilities and allows viewers to return to a Web board to read new posts.
Web Crossing 4.0 can send board subscribers newly arrived posts. Another feature notifies viewers that new posts are available to read. The user will be able to click on a link in the e-mail notification and go to the Internet board.
Users also are able to reply to messages by e-mail and unsubscribe from the program through a link in the mail. In addition, the system can be used to offer subscribers personal calendars.
Web Crossing users licensed in 1999 or 2000 can upgrade to the new version for free. For new licenses and those purchased prior to 1999, the upgraded system's price ranges from $295 to $1,995 depending on the page views a site will receive per day.
