 NEW AND ENHANCED APPLICATIONS FROM WANG STRENGTHEN POWER OF VS
 LOWELL, Mass., Nov. 4 /PRNewswire/ -- Wang Laboratories, Inc. (NYSE: WAN) today announced four new or enhanced applications for its VS systems. Available now, these products are the result of Wang's continuing development efforts to support its VS customers. Exceeding its original commitment to announce 37 new products for the VS product line in 1992, Wang has now brought more than 40 new VS products to market this year and will continue to introduce new VS offerings.
 The four announced VS applications increase functionality, capacity, and performance while continuing to build on customers' investments in Wang VS systems and applications. With WP Plus 4.0, Wang has enhanced its VS word processing offerings. The other new applications are Desktop Printer Services for Microsoft Windows, the VS ANSITAPE Utility, and WANGToPS. Wang will be showing these and many other VS products at its users' Technetron Conference in Boston from Nov. 9-11.
 "These four applications help our VS customers further leverage their VS investment," said Donald P. Casey, Wang's executive vice president and chief development officer. "The VS continues to be an important part of Wang's OFFICE 2000 strategy to help our customers improve their productivity, quality and service. We are committed to meeting our VS users' systems needs and are on schedule with our VS product plan." Product Highlights
 Wang VS WP Plus is a full-featured, powerful document processing product that provides advanced editing features and printing capabilities. WP Plus 4.0 now includes an interactive foreground spelling capability with an improved user interface and increased performance, a system-wide foreground corporate dictionary, global replace of styles, enhanced repagination, and a system database report utility. This consolidation of new functionality within WP Plus 4.0 offers greater flexibility, increased productivity, and improved performance to fulfill expanding document processing requirements. Pricing ranges from $1,600 to $20,800 per VS.
 Desktop Printer Services for Windows (DPSW) is a new application for VS or PC LAN users who require VS or PC network printing of their WP Plus documents, VS WIIS images, and VS data processing files.

Supported over multiple communication transports, DPSW enables users to gain access to a series of advanced printing capabilities. DPSW is licensed per VS system at $3,500.
 VS ANSITAPE Utility is a software product that reads from tapes produced according to the 1978 and 1987 American National Standards Institute (ANSI) standards and writes to tapes according to the 1987 ANSI standards. A multivendor coexistence product, VS ANSITAPE Utility supports the open systems environment by enabling users to transfer their files between VS systems and other vendors' systems. It is priced at $1,200 per VS.
 Wang continues its support of industry-standard printers with the introduction of a new VS printer application.
