REFERENCEPOINT SOFTWARE CORPORATION ANNOUNCES POWERFUL NEW PRODUCTIVITY SOFTWARE FOR WINDOWS USERS

 OREM, Utah, Dec. 13 /PRNewswire/ -- ReferencePoint Software Corporation today announced ReferencePoint Personal Assistant(TM), a revolutionary new productivity tool that allows Microsoft Windows(TM) users to instantly find files, documents and information on their local or network drives, without the need to remember file names. The user types in a word, phrase or string of characters, and Personal Assistant searches the complete text of all the information on their local or network drives and finds every file or document that contains the requested information.
 Personal Assistant instantly indexes, retrieves, displays and prints any information requested by the user, whether it is a word processing, spreadsheet, graphics or database file. The complete contents of all files is indexed, not just file names or key words. By simply typing in a word or phrase, the user can easily find all relevant information without opening directories, folders or files. For example, when searching for information, the user may not open files with ambiguous file names, files created by others, or forgotten files that contain relevant information, etc. Personal Assistant instantly finds these files, regardless of file format, when they contain the requested information. Then, the ReferencePoint viewer allows the user to easily view and print files without having to launch any applications.
 The ReferencePoint(R) background processor automatically creates an index of the full text of all files; no user effort is required. In fact, users continue to use the applications as they have always done, while Personal Assistant immediately captures, records, updates and catalogs every file, and indexes every word in those files -- all in the background with no user intervention. This unique dynamic and background indexing also eliminates the need to wait for a nightly batch update. And with Personal Assistant, files are kept in their native, revisable formats, so there is no need to convert y? files.
 Personal Assistant supports OLE client, table and embedded graphics, and compound documents, allowing users to access, view, print and copy files on other PCs, Macintoshes and UNIX machines over a network, including files created with programs such as WordPerfect, Microsoft Word, AmiPro, Excel, Lotus 1-2-3, etc.
 "Most people spend over two hours a day just looking for things," commented Jacques Jonassaint, president of ReferencePoint Software Corporation. "Personal Assistant can greatly reduce the time spent searching for and viewing required documents or files. Never again will users have to spend hours searching for their information, just because they can't remember file names."
 ReferencePoint Personal Assistant runs under the Microsoft Windows environment, and has an introductory price of $99.95. Personal Assistant is shipping immediately.
 ReferencePoint Software Corporation supplies leading edge information management solutions that give real-time access to enterprise-wide data.
