Computer Works Launches MailRules 2.1


Computer Works Launches MailRules 2.1 Following International Success With Email Automation Software

NZ Software Exporter Seeks Strategic Partner To Grow Business

AUCKLAND – 7 March 2001 – New Zealand software developer and exporter, Computer Works Ltd, today announced the launch of version 2.1 of its internationally successful email automation software tool, MailRules. Following rapid growth in sales both in New Zealand and overseas, the e-Commerce collaborative tool now features 48 further enhancements including Surefire Delivery, strengthened encryption capabilities and automatic synchronisation of files via email.

Announcing the launch of MailRules version 2.1, Computer Works CEO, Mike Mohanbhai, said that the company had begun a formal process to find an appropriate strategic partner to help grow the business. “Computer Works is seeking a strategic partner that will not only provide the necessary funds for growth but facilitate further access to international markets, as well as enhance our technical and business development capabilities. We have appointed Richard Millar, a highly experienced businessman in the technology industry, to lead this venture funding process.”

About MailRules

First released in 1999, MailRules is an e-Commerce collaborative software tool that uses email to automate the rapid transfer of information securely and cost-effectively. “Organisations need to move and update information securely,” explains Mr Mohanbhai. “Until now the usual method employed to achieve this has involved costly solutions customised for specific proprietary systems, but our clients required a simpler and cheaper option. MailRules was developed by Computer Works to meet this gap in the market.”

Based on the Windows platform, MailRules is a ‘transport facility’ that allows companies to develop their own functionality. With MailRules, companies are able to reduce costs in data entry and leased lines; send large files over the Internet securely; synchronise work file updates on multiple computers; centrally manage information; install software at remote locations and automatically process online orders into accounting systems.

After only nine months on the market, more than fifty organisations around the world use MailRules, including Curry Oil in the United States, Osmoflo in Australia and CEVI NV in Belgium. In New Zealand, users include Nike, Mainfreight and Pit Stop.
