LONDON, England - 16th May 2001 MediaGold today announced the launch of its range of utility titles from IMSI comprising NetAccelerator 3, WinDelete 5, FormTool Express and TurboProjet Express.

"With FormTool Express and TurboProject Express priced at £19.99 including VAT and Net Accelerator 3 and WinDelete 5 priced at £14.99 including VAT, this is an excellent suite of utilities for small business and home users," says Jo Wood, CEO of MediaGold, exclusive UK distributor for IMSI.

FormTool Express - ready to use forms in an instant
FormTool Express provides a simple approach to creating all types of business forms from work orders and times sheets to meeting agendas and fax cover sheets. Its 400+ templates are ready-to-use or can be easily customised to suit users' exact specifications. Incorporating a library of commonly used object icons and allowing the importing of Bitmap and GIF graphic files, users are free to design not only the layout of their forms but the overall look. Images from the object palette can be easily positioned using a drag-and-drop tool, rulers and snap-to grids. Once created, forms can be emailed to users for filling in and can be either printed out or completed on screen. If the forms are filled in electronically, the information entered into the fields can be calculated and projections made. Furthermore, as each form is filled in, FormTool Express automatically creates a new record to which it assigns a unique number, assisting in keeping track of records as well as bookkeeping and invoicing. Other features include: spell check, data storage, a report tutor, a label tutor, OLE support, interaction with Excel®, Access®, FoxPro® and other databases.

TurboProject Express - fast and simple creation of schedules, charts and timelines.
