SoftQuad Software launched the XMetaL Quick Start Program, which lets companies prototype, pilot, and deploy XMetaL content creation solutions for XML-based e-publishing, e-commerce, and knowledge management applications. SoftQuad tailors the XMetaL program to the needs of each organization, which can use the program to enhance existing content applications and develop new applications. Customized programs include user licenses and specifically focused consultation services. "XMetaL has already been accepted as the premier enabler for XML content applications by many Global 1000 companies," says Roberto Drassinower, SoftQuad’s president and CEO. "The Quick Start Program provides an accessible XML entry point for companies of all sizes."
