Intraware and Wallop Software Partner Up to Market Family of Web Application Assembly Software

Intraware to Electronically Deliver and Support all Wallop Software Offerings

ORINDA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--July 21, 1997--In an ongoing effort to develop strategic relationships with "best of breed" intranet software developers, Intraware has joined Wallop Software's Business Partner Program.

Intraware, the industry's premier electronic provider of intranet software and services, will be the first to electronically provide sales and support for Wallop's family of web application assembly software applications.

The Wallop Build-IT family of products -- Wallop Build-IT for the Enterprise and Wallop Build-IT for Business Users -- enables organizations to collaboratively create web application components, assemble them into reliable applications, deploy and maintain them.

Released last week, the 2.0 version offers new features to improve the process of assembling and maintaining web applications. They include: enhanced application integrity, support for larger web applications, enabling team assembly, and tighter integration with "best of breed" authoring tools.

"Our approach to providing the best in intranet software solutions is very much like Wallop's mission -- to empower web developers, designers and content contributors to build and maintain highly reliable web applications," said Peter Jackson, president and chief executive officer (CEO) of Intraware. "This partnership enhances our ability to achieve these similar goals by providing the highest level of services and best products so that we can bring incremental value and sales to Wallop and our other partners."

"As the Wallop Build-IT 2.0 launch drew nearer, we quickly recognized the need to enter into a relationship with a partner that had a solid understanding of the emerging web application market, a strong sales presence on the Internet and the infrastructure to help our users after the sale," said Robert C. Bolt, CEO of Wallop. "Intraware is the only company that mirrors this business model and we believe our market share will grow because of it."

From Intraware's web site (, information technology (IT) managers may research and evaluate Wallop's software offerings and other intranet-based products prior to purchase. Once the evaluation process is completed, IT managers can quickly and cost-effectively buy, install, upgrade and support these high quality business-critical applications, via Intraware's sophisticated electronic delivery system.
