Activespace To Launch Online Database Apps Services

Activespace Inc., an application service provider, will officially launch the beta version of its Web site Wednesday. The site will include free online tools that let small and midsize businesses create simple database applications for managing projects, sharing files, and managing corporate assets.

The company, founded last year, claims to have 500 beta users, mostly businesses using the site after a "soft launch" some months ago. The company says no IT experience is necessary to set up applications online, and since Activespace manages the apps, no maintenance is required on the part of its customers.

Included in the suite is the Activespace library, a set of preconfigured applications that lets users manage contact lists, sales prospects, company assets, software bugs, employee directories, projects, product features, work schedules, expense reports, and other personal data. In addition, the site includes a relational database engine that lets users create complex data structures, a Web-page editor, and access controls to let users define application access permissions. The site will automatically E-mail a user when an application has been updated. It will also synchronize with handheld devices such as the Palm Pilot and Windows CE-based machines.

Stephan Morais, Activespace's founder and CEO, says the company will continue to offer free database storage once the site is fully operational. Currently, users get 12 Mbytes of database storage and 3 Mbytes of storage for images. After the beta period, users will pay a set fee for additional storage. The company plans to offer other value-added services such as encryption, vertically oriented applications and templates, and additional capacity, for monthly fees. Each service will be offered separately.
