Web Innovator Launches Unique New Service at eCode.com: Delivering Global Id, Web-based Business Cards and a Truly Self-Populating and Self-Updating Address Book.

SUNNYVALE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--August 4, 1998--eCode.com, Inc. today launched its patent pending eCode concept, addressing the needs of consumers and business users alike to effortlessly stay in touch with friends and business associates. For a limited time, eCode.com is giving away life-long eCodes, feature rich web-based Address (BizE) Books and, Business (BizE) Cards at http://www.eCode.com. Early adopters will also qualify for a drawing for a free trip to Paris.

eCode.com exploits the essence of the web to allow users to network with each other and stay in touch. An eCode is a one-word alias that never changes, and substitutes the lines of text that make up your forever-changing contact information. Pick an eCode, enter your contact information - as much or as little as you choose, and the system automatically generates a cool graphical business card that you can exchange with anyone to gain instant electronic access to each other's contact information (BizE Cards). At the click of a button, these cards can be added to one's personal Address Book, provided at NO CHARGE to eCode.com subscribers. When a subscriber updates his or her contact information, it is updated automatically in all the address books that contain the eCode. Users will soon be able to download a stand-alone version of the address book for use when they are not connected to the Internet.

Secure, Private, and Simple to Use -0-

 eCode.com leverages the multimedia, global access and push
capabilities of the World Wide Web while addressing the issues that
are of paramount concern to users:

-- It is Secure: eCode.com does not offer directory searching.
 Subscribers can only access information about other subscribers
 who have voluntarily exchanged eCodes.

-- It is Private: the maintenance and access to information on the
 web-site is controlled solely by the users.

-- It is Simple to Use: Besides a Java enabled Web browser and an
 Internet connection, eCode.com requires no software or plugins to
 be installed on a user's computer. It is simple to use and yet it
 provides features and functions, which far surpass those of
 traditional contact management systems. In addition, eCode.com
 allows users to design their BizE cards with the ability to pick
 from fun and cool: logos, paper textures, paper colors, ink
 colors, and a variety of styles. eCode.com also offers an
 easy-to-use way to add non-subscribers ("sleeper") to one's
 address book.


Staying in Touch...easily

eCode.com offers users around the globe a way to free themselves from the cumbersome chores of Address Book maintenance, and change of address notification.

"Users will no longer have to manage, populate, or, update their address books - ever! Our vision is to utilize the ubiquitous nature of the Web to enable people to stay in touch with each other no matter where in the world they move. eCode.com is a giant step in realizing this vision," says Rohit Chandra, President & CEO of eCode.com. "Our mission is have an eCode on every business card in the world."

System Requirements

Java enabled Browser and an access to the World Wide Web.
