SHARKWARE ON SALE NATIONWIDE; NEW SOFTWARE PRODUCT PROVIDES MEANS AND MOTIVATION FOR SUCCESS

 ATLANTA, June 21 /PRNewswire/ -- Sharkware, the new contact and activity management computer software product based on the proven contact and business management methods described in Harvey Mackay's New York Times No. 1 bestsellers "Swim With the Sharks Without Being Eaten Alive" and "Beware the Naked Man Who Offers You His Shirt," and the instant national bestseller "Sharkproof," is now on sale nationwide.
 The product, which runs on Windows(TM), will be sold through a national network of leading computer software retailers, including Egghead, Computer City, CompUSA, Waldensoft and other retail outlets. The suggested retail price is $129.95.
 Sharkware is the first product developed by CogniTech, an Atlanta- based software company that was started by two former Dun & Bradstreet computer executives and one of the industry's most experienced PIM (Personal Information Manager) and contact management software engineers.
 "Sharkware is the culmination of years of experience in developing contact and activity management products," said Charlie Cumbaa, president of CogniTech. "We set extremely stringent goals for this product, all of which we have achieved. The product had to be easy to use, extremely flexible, easily customized, and, most of all, very affordable."
 The unique aspect of Sharkware is the incorporation of Mackay's proven management systems that have been at the core of his successful series of business books. Based on Mackay's theme that contacts are a person's most valuable assets, Sharkware is the only product to incorporate the renowned Mackay 66 and other profiles outlined in his books. Each of the Mackay profiles enables users to develop comprehensive information about each of their contacts, including personal interests, birthdays, hobbies, family backgrounds, professional achievements and other information that will help build relationships and enable people to be more successful.
 In addition, there are numerous Mackay quotes and tips, including a tip of the day, that motivate users to maintain and manage their contact base.
 "Sharkware has been designed to be more than a contact and activity management resource. It was designed to be a better way to keep track of the activities and people in your life," said Cumbaa. "The inclusion of Mackay's proven techniques make Sharkware a total contact and activity management system, providing not only the means, but the motivation to become more successful."
 There are several key features that differentiate Sharkware from other contact managers and PIMs available today. Sharkware is the first product to successfully merge a powerful contact manager with a full- featured PIM. Unlike other products, Sharkware offers an unlimited number of user-definable fields that enable users to sort their contacts in an infinite number of ways.
 Contacts are separated into groups within a single powerful database -- a "fast-find" tool enables instant look-up of contacts. Sharkware directly links the contact management functions and the activity management functions together so that the user can call up data from the contact management side of the program while using activity management functions such as the calendar, to-do list, or the telephone auto- dialing feature with automatic call logging.
 Other key capabilities include a "creeping" feature in the calendar and to-do functions that automatically forwards uncompleted tasks to the "to-do" list of the following day. Sharkware also provides DDE support for printing with multiple word processors. In addition, Sharkware has the ability to generate an unlimited number of addresses per contact and an unlimited number of notes, each with an automatic time and date stamp.
 Sharkware features unique packaging and is the first contact management software product to include an audiotape as part of the product. Narrated by Mackay, the audiotape explains some of his philosophies and methods what will help users become more successful by using Sharkware. Sharkware will also be included as part of a nationwide promotion with Fuji Computer Products. Ten-packs of Fuji Photo Film blank diskettes will include a free demo diskette of Sharkware and discount coupons. The promotion begins in late June.
 CogniTech, a privately held company based in Atlanta, is the developer of Sharkware, the only total contact and activity management system for personal computers, and can be contacted at 800-48-SHARK.
