STATION SOFTWARE RECEIVES $50,000 INVESTMENT GRANT

 KENNETT SQUARE, Pa., Nov. 16 ~PRNewswire~ -- Station Software, Inc. President Robert Yayac announced recently that the company has received a $50,000 small company research and development investment grant from the Ben Franklin Partnership.
 The grant is for the continued development of a technical information retrieval system, based on the company's software product, Sightseer(R).
 Sightseer acts as the focal point for locating and retrieving the variety of drawings and data that are needed by businesses on both a day-to-day and emergency basis. Sightseer's intelligent links allow users to access all related information from a common interface -- the engineering drawing. Users may quickly and easily view, print and redline current engineering drawings from the company's CAD (computer- aided design) system as well as review associated data such as database records and related documentation from low cost PCs and workstations.
 Because it can be tailored to duplicate the manner in which users currently access information, Sightseer's point and click graphical user interface allows any user to be productive immediately. Sightseer's user friendly design reduces implementation time and enhances productivity since it requires no formal training or prior experience to use.
 Station Software's customers include Federal-Mogul Corporation, Lockheed Space Operations, 3M, Oscar Mayer Foods Corporation, Miller Brewing Company, Ashland Petroleum and American Cyanamid.
 Established in 1983, the Ben Franklin Technology Center (BFTC) of Southeastern Pennsylvania locally administers the Ben Franklin Partnership Program, an initiative of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania to strengthen the economy through advanced technology. The BFTC provides financial and technical assistance to help companies get started, develop new products and manufacturing processes, introduce "total quality" management, access worldwide information databases and collaborate with university research experts.
