Agreement is the latest deal for ThatWeb.Com's Branded Solutions

SINGAPORE, 4 July 2000 - ThatWeb.Com Private Limited, a wholly owned subsidiary of Aztech Systems Pte Ltd , announced on June, 20th that one of its Internet Communication products, Uni.Mail, will power Hong Kong-based Netalone.com's lifestyle portal.

As part of ThatWeb.Com's Branded Solutions to Netalone.Com Limited, a full-service e-commerce enabler that operates several vertical portals, the implementation of Uni.Mail into Netalone.com's lifestyle portal, izzue.com, will further augment its services to the users of the lifestyle portal. By providing email retrieval services to izzue.com's users, it will complete its range of services as a one-stop portal for online shopping, content, entertainment and electronic communications.

"We chose ThatWeb.Com's Uni.Mail because of the value it can bring to our web site. With Uni.Mail, we are extending izzue.com beyond being an avenue for online shopping, business and information, into a place where users can conduct other errands such as checking emails," said Ms Belinda Chan, Executive Director & Chief Information Officer of Netalone.com Limited.

Netalone.com is using the Private Branding option under ThatWeb.Com's Branded Solutions agreement. Private Branding of ThatWeb.Com's products allows users of any portal to see an interface that is customised to blend in to the host web site and its persona. The only indication of ThatWeb.Com's involvement is a small "Powered by ThatWeb.Com" acknowledgement that is placed at the base of the page. ThatWeb.Com will be responsible for maintaining the entire system.

ThatWeb.Com's Uni.Mail is an intelligent and easy to use email technology which allows users to retrieve any email messages with only their email address and email password via any Internet-enabled PC, without any configurations needed. The email password is encrypted using the Secure Socket Layer (SSL) technology. When the user logs out from Uni.Mail, it automatically purges the email contents from the ThatWeb.Com's servers without affecting the contents in the original email server.

"We are very honoured that we can work together with Netalone.com to provide our technology to their hosts of portals. Not only do we see this collaboration as a win-win situation for both parties, it will also boost the presence of both companies tremendously in the Asia Pacific region," said Dixon Hong, Director of ThatWeb.Com Private Limited.
