Philadelphia, PA - March 01, 2003 - Lantica Software, LLC Issues Initial Beta Release of Sesame.
Responding to the market absence of a database management product truly designed for the SOHO user, Lantica Software has released the initial beta version of their database management product, code named Sesame. While every product on the market claims that programming skills are not necessary to create and use a database, Sesame backs that claim with a powerful, intuitive interface designed from the ground up around the small business user.
"I'm delighted by the overwhelmingly positive response we've received from both the alpha test group and the initial beta test group. Everyone seems to be really having fun building and testing databases!" said Erika Yoxall, the Sesame Development Team Leader.
While Sesame is geared towards the end user, it still includes plenty of features for those who need to build applications for their employees, internal departments or clients. Bobbi Baker, a database professional who is a member of the early beta test group exclaims, "Sure stability, speed, etc. are the most important features of a database. BUT when I take my laptop to meet with a potential client for the first time they want something to look at, both as an example of the software and my work. This is guaranteed to make a terrific first impression!"
Lantica Software was initially formed to find a path to the future for the users of Symantec Q&A, a DOS/Windows 3.1 database product famous for its ease-of-use, longevity and user loyalty. With its ability to translate Q&A databases, Sesame succeeds in providing that path, as well as providing a powerful business tool for any user who wants to organize their information, without becoming consultant-bound. According to Bob Scott, a Q&A power user, "Sesame is packed with amazing features and is surprisingly easy to use. The Lantica team has created an incredible product that is more than I could have ever asked for or dreamed of."

Nevertheless, I had to say that working with many products (both PC and handheld), I have never encountered a better software developer and, maybe even more importantly, a more responsive one. I may not yet enjoy fully using the product, but I refer others to it often and as frequently to your website as an example of how a product should be released and supported. You have, quite simply, the very best site I've seen. Clean, informative, easy to navigate, with so many of the missing elements with other products. Just finding which version is current and searching for answers here is a dream compared to trying to search a Yahoo forum or get an answer from tech support. Getting help, detailed, polite answers, quick responses, and actually being able to contact the developers themselves is unbelievable.
