Based on a cross-application shared data repository the company's Evermore Integrated Office (EIOffice) is set for commercial launched in May, but the pilot edition can be purchased for $65.95 before the official launch date. After launch, lease pricing will be $99 annually or $249 for three years.
EIOffice consolidates into one application the separate components of a conventional Office suite, the company said. Users launch EIOffice, not a word processor, then a spreadsheet, then a business graphics application. EIOffice stores all text, worksheets, graphics, audio, video and slides in one file format, .eio. One "binder" stores all related cell ranges, text, graphics, audio and video objects.
Written in Java, EIOffice runs on Windows and Linux, while support for Macintosh OS X and Solaris is in development.
