Ingenium Messenger 3.0

In 1996, corporations were faced with a new situation where wide-area networks connected users around the world, yet the web browsers and web server technology were not sufficiently implemented within companies to allow users to communicate. To help Ingenium customers meet the workflow needs of a worldwide organization, Ingenium Messenger was designed to provide data access through the one network technology that was stable at the time... e-mail!

Messenger was a server application that was associated with an e-mail address. The Messenger server was capable of sending and receiving specially formatted text-based “forms” that end-users could “fill-out” to request reports, register for training, etc.

Although Ingenium Messenger had a short life (and was soon obsolesced by a web-based equivalent), it became an important “breeding ground” for technologies that would be used later:
