Intranets.com Introduces New User Interface -- Delivers Advanced Ease-of-Use and Customization Features

On-Demand Collaboration Leader Overhauls User Interface Adding Enhanced Functionality and a Fresh New Look and Feel

BURLINGTON, MA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- August 30, 2005 -- Intranets.com (http://www.intranets.com), the world's leading provider of on-demand collaboration services, today announced the launch of a new user interface that includes a fresh look and feel, improved layout, and several advanced customization options. This major upgrade is the direct result of months of user testing as well as ongoing feedback from customers worldwide. Beginning immediately, Intranets.com users will have a more intuitive and flexible design that includes custom short cuts, quick links, full menu control, and much more.

All of the new features are designed to give the company's 300,000 plus users more control over their information and more freedom to personalize the look and navigation of the Intranets.com collaboration suite.

"As members of the Intranets.com Customer Advisory Council, we have been beta testing the new user interface for several weeks and we are elated with the new features -- many that we suggested have been incorporated into the new interface," said Michael Hartley, vice president of Dale K. Ehrhart, Inc. "We have found the new design to be more aesthetically pleasing and we anticipate that the new layout and enhanced features will help us work more fluidly and effectively."

The new user interface now includes:

--  Full Menu Control -- users can add, remove, reorder, and organize Menu
    items to fit a group's specific needs.
--  Collapsible Menu and Home Page Windows -- Intranets.com's menu is now
    collapsible to help users make better use of screen real estate. Users can
    simply collapse the Menu when more workspace is needed and can expand it
    when the full menu is needed again.
--  Unlimited "Quick Links" -- users can now add as many Quick Link tabs
    to the top of the Intranets.com service as needed -- including creating
    custom URLs.
--  Custom Shortcuts -- users can add custom shortcuts to link to anywhere
    within or outside of the Intranets.com service.
--  New Color Scheme Choices -- users can choose from more than 30 new
    color schemes to customize the Intranets.com service to match their
    corporate look and feel.
    
"We overhauled the entire look and feel of our collaboration service to make it even easier to use and more customizable," said Karen Leavitt, vice president of marketing at Intranets.com. "The feedback from our customers played an important role in our new design and we are delighted to deliver the tools they've been asking for. This upgrade represents a major leap forward for our product and gives us added flexibility to introduce new applications designed to help our customers run their businesses even more effectively."
