ITINET launches Spanish graphical interface.
ITINET, the worldwide online service in Spanish, has launched its new graphical interface, according to Jose Lepervanche, vice president of Innovative Telematics, Inc., the company that markets this service in the U.S.
This online service, whose main orientation has been to promote the interchange of information and business between Latin-American countries and Hispanic-speaking people around the globe, had worked under a text interface. This new interface responds to users' needs for a simple DOS-based interface.
Among the improvements planned to satisfy its current and new users, Lepervanche said that it is very important to offer the marketplace a full-color, user-friendly interface that permits navigation using icons. The main objective of this interface is to please die new users who are accustomed to the graphical atmosphere, and also to promote the interest from old users who need to become accustomed to this new wave. Thus, ITINET will offer its two interfaces covering wide needs of the marketplace. ITINET works on either DOS- or Windows-based platforms.
Latin-American countries often suffer from a lack of updated information and high communication costs. For this reason, Lepervanche indicated that commercial online services, such as ITINET, provide an excellent solution for the real requirements of companies, professionals, and individuals of that region who want to keep pace with the new information technologies.
ITINET costs a flat fee of $19 per month for 10 hours of connection in the U.S. Among its users are import/export companies and companies with offices and representatives in Latin-American countries. Online business information available includes TRADEMATCH, IMI Reports, Economic and Finance News, etc.
Lepervanche said that ITINET has become "the net of the Americas," since its infrastructure covers 11 Latin-American countries and Spain. For more information, call ITINET in Miami Beach, FL, at 305/674-1001.
