CLARIS ANNOUNCES PROMOTIONAL PRICING FOR WINDOWS APPLICATIONS; SPRING THROUGH SUMMER SAVINGS ON FILEMAKER PRO 2.0 AND CLARISWORKS 1.0

 SANTA CLARA, Calif., March 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Claris Corp. today announced a special limited-time price for its Windows software.
 From April 1 through Aug. 15, 1993, FileMaker Pro 2.0 for Windows, the award-winning database manager for end-users, usually available at a suggested retail price (SRP) of $399, will be offered for $129. In addition, ClarisWorks 1.0 for Windows, the revolutionary new integrated software, which will ship by May 1, will be offered at a special introductory price of only $99. After Aug. 15, ClarisWorks 1.0 will be offered at $249 (SRP). These promotional prices are in effect in the United States and Canada.
 "Claris has intensified its long-term commitment to Windows with more technical support resources, training, research and development and marketing than ever before," said Dick Gorman, Claris vice president of worldwide marketing. "We are building upon our success within the Windows environment and maximizing our market share with this pricing promotion."
 FileMaker Pro 2.0, which has garnered over 16 "Best Product" awards from leading U.S. and international technology and consumer magazines since shipping last fall, offers users complete flexibility and versatility in setting up a database quickly without the assistance of high-priced database consultants. FileMaker Pro 2.0 was the company's first cross-platform application, allowing both PC and Macintosh users to share data seamlessly.
 Competitive trade-ups for FileMaker Pro 2.0 for Windows, all priced at $99 (SRP), are available to users of the following database software products through Aug. 15, 1993: Access, FoxPro, Approach, PFS Professional File, Q & A, dBASE, rBASE, Reflex, PC File, Paradox, and Alpha Four.
 ClarisWorks for Windows features a breakthrough in interface design that offers users a more natural way of computing. Departing from the module-based approach of other integrated products that bolt separate mini-applications together, ClarisWorks for Windows seamlessly integrates robust word processing, graphics, spreadsheet, charting and database environments.
 Introduced on Macintosh 16 months ago, ClarisWorks' market share of the Macintosh integrated category skyrocketed from zero to more than 60 percent by June 1992, toppling the previous market share leader, Microsoft Works. ClarisWorks for Windows shares the elegant interface design that drove the success of its Macintosh counterpart, and is also a true Windows application that supports key Windows capabilities and user interface standards.
