Milum Corp. Launches Web-Based Version of Office Tracker Scheduling Software Giving Access From Anywhere in the World

Enables Windows, Macintosh, Linux and Unix Users to Easily Share Schedules

AUSTIN, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 19, 2005 -- Milum Corporation today launched a Web-based version of its Office Tracker group scheduling software (Version 7.0) for real-time access to schedules via a web browser, from any location. Office Tracker enables businesses and other organizations to schedule appointments, rooms and resources (equipment, vehicles, etc.), eliminating mistakes such as double bookings and missed appointments.

With this new version, users can now easily access Office Tracker schedules via the Web without special software, making it accessible from any computer, client site or even Internet café. Ideal for offices that need to share schedules and information in real-time, with multiple hardware platforms, Office Tracker Version 7.0 also allows users from Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Unix -- to share schedules seamlessly via their Web browser.

"Office Tracker Version 7.0 helps businesses stay on track, on time, and enables them to access their schedules easily online," said Kelly Hayes, President of Milum Corporation. "An easy-to-use group scheduling solution, Office Tracker Version 7.0 is now even easier to install, set-up and maintain, with no software required on the end-user side."

With Version 7.0, users can create a Web Version of their Office Tracker calendar with a few clicks to select the type of schedule such as "Daily," "Weekly," "Monthly" or "Planner," and share it with a large number of people, both inside and outside the office. In addition, the user can determine which names to show in the schedule, the time range and specific access details for the shared calendar. For organizations, such as a community center or church, with many scheduled events, this enables them to easily publish their calendar to an unlimited number of people.

"The new web-based version of Office Tracker is perfect for our business. It allows all of us to access our schedules from the web when we're at client offices, airports or anywhere. Not only can our staff access our firm's schedules, but our clients can also view them to see who is available for a project, on a particular day," said John Hales, Vice President of Operations for OCI Technologies, an international technology consulting firm. "Before using Office Tracker, we spent 10 hours a week or more managing schedules with an Excel spreadsheet -- this is much more efficient and effective."

Office Tracker allows people to set up schedules in minutes, eliminating the need for multiple emails and phone calls, while providing access to key information. A total scheduling software package, it easily manages scheduling for meetings, resources, vacations, staff and classes/ training (with access to available rooms).

Office Tracker Version 7.0 Features Include

* Alarm Meeting Reminders: Enables users to set reminders for other users and contacts to eliminate forgotten appointments.

* Mail Merge: Enables users to export Office Tracker contact lists for mail merge functions.

* Enhanced Security Protection: Office Tracker Version 7.0 features SSL (security socket layer).

* Project Planner View: Enables users to see names down the left and days/hours across the top of the view, a commonly used format in project planner software that makes planning staff requirements, and other long range projects much easier.

* Easy Upgrades: New features can be easily implemented for an entire organization via the Web.
