Online archives service signs 3 new clients p.18

By: Mark Fitzgerald Infonautics Inc., an Internet information company, today announced the addition of three new publishing clients for its e-commerce online archive services. The company says that Media General, Editor & Publisher magazine, and The Morning Call, a Times Mirror newspaper in Allentown, Pa., have selected Infonautics to build and manage their respective online archives.
The sites will be built using the next- generation e-commerce archive technology recently developed by Infonautics. The company announced the news on the opening day of the Interactive Newspapers Conference being held in Atlanta.
Infonautics will initially construct three archive sites for Media General, including two regional archives serving the company's media properties in Virginia and North Carolina and a corporate super-archive to eventually include all Media General properties.
"This is a big day for Infonautics, and we're delighted to be working with these three well-respected publishers," says William Burger, vice president of content and media services for Infonautics.
"The state-of-the-art archive system we implemented two years ago had become antiquated. Infonautics provided us with a system that re-establishes us as a leader in fulfilling the information and service needs of our customers," says Chris Phillips, publisher of Editor & Publisher.
