Cleveland, Ohio, 07/29/2004 -- Genii Software, Ltd. and Granite Software, Inc. today announced a distribution agreement for Genii Software's CoexLinks for Lotus Domino. This agreement enables both software firms to continue their growth strategies and strengthen their respective technology solutions while extending their product sales to existing and new customers.

Granite Software, the award-winning developer of anti-spam tools for the Lotus Notes and Domino platform, will continue providing exceptional software and service to its customers while Genii Software will continue its research and development into new as well as existing products, such as its popular Midas Rich Text product line. Granite Software will distribute and provide technical support for the CoexLinks software family while Genii Software will continue to provide on-going research and development for CoexLinks.

“We’re committed to selling and supporting best-of-breed products and our customers depend upon us to deliver powerful and reliable solutions.” said Mark Ramos, president of Granite Software. “By teaming with Genii Software and their CoexLinks product we’re confident that we’ll continue to bring the best value to all of our customers.”

CoexLinks works by intercepting mail routed through a Domino server and converting any doclinks to either NDL file attachments, Notes URL hotspots or Web URL hotspots. The solution supports all kinds of Lotus Notes Doclinks, including View Links and Database Links. Recipients may access the targeted Notes document, view or database by launching the attached NDL file or by clicking on the URL. Then the linked document can be viewed, respectively, from their Lotus Notes client or web browser. CoexLinks is currently available for Windows NT/2000/2003, Solaris and AIX for Domino 5 and Domino 6 and soon for Linux.

"Given Granite Software’s in-depth understanding of the corporate messaging market, its strong sales and marketing program and its extensive history of success with Notes/Domino products, we are extremely excited about the positive potential that this agreement brings to both our companies,” said Ben Langhinrichs, president of Genii Software. “Our CoexLinks product has achieved great success, but it has been increasingly difficult to properly focus on our vital research and development projects while still supporting the growing sales and support effort necessary for CoexLinks to thrive. Granite Software’s Notes/Domino expertise will provide our users with the necessary support they have come to expect from us.”
