Westbrook Technologies Releases Fortis Portal -- Bringing Portable Document Management to Handhelds and Mobile Devices

New Application Enables Fortis Users to View Documents From Anywhere, Thus Obtaining an Entire New Level of "Documents on Demand"

BRANFORD, CT -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 4, 2006 -- Westbrook Technologies, a leader in enterprise document management software for the mid-market and one of Deloitte and Touche's 2005 and 2006 "Fast 50" technology companies in Connecticut, today introduced Fortis Portal. The solution developed by Westbrook's Professional Services team of specialists allows electronic documents to be easily viewed over the Internet from anywhere, including BlackBerry devices and other mobile devices.

The business world of today is constantly on the move, and to be effective you need the latest information at your fingertips to make the right decisions. With Fortis Portal, organizations with locations down the street or around the globe have the ability to view documents from anywhere -- in seconds.

Access to this information not only fuels decision making, but is the driver in many organizations that need to achieve ultra-high standards in customer service. Customer service technicians, labor departments, department of motor vehicles, service bureaus, utility companies and others require access to documents without the requirement of downloading specialized viewers.

Fortis Portal provides documents in the format you want on demand. In addition, it is designed to work around the most common obstacles preventing instant document access. Fortis Portal provides:

--  Read-only access to Fortis documents
--  Access to Fortis documents outside a firewall
--  Standard rendering to PDF documents
--  Secure Fortis environment using existing Fortis security credentials
--  Zero "foot print" on the client
--  No ActiveX controls
--  Load balancing on multiple web servers
--  Access to Fortis documents from Mac computing environments
--  Support for PDA (Windows Pocket and CE) and BlackBerry devices
It is the last feature that makes this Fortis Portal truly amazing. Imagine a scenario in which a sales representative needs to see what last minute revisions have been made to a corporate contract as he is walking into the client's office and has no access to a fax machine or laptop to confirm the changes. With a simple query of the Fortis database from a BlackBerry, the contract can be instantly viewed to obtain the information. Think of the thousands of instances where you needed to see a statement, invoice, contract, record, spreadsheet or other business critical document -- with Fortis Portal you now have that ability.
