The WhitePages.com Smart Tag provides users of Office 2003 and Office XP with the time-savings task of automatically inserting contact information into their documents and programs -- turning their desktops into a .NET connected smart client.

Accessible via free download (at http://www.whitepages.com/smarttags, the Office Marketplace at http://office.microsoft.com/marketplace or http://www.nereosoft.com), the WhitePages.com Smart Tag provides the ultimate time-saving features for users who can now access WhitePages.com's directory assistance database without leaving their Word document or Outlook email message -- eliminating the need for multiple research windows.

To access information, users need just click the Smart Tag to jump out to a .NET web service running on the new Windows 2003 Servers on the Internet. This web service looks up the information on Whitepages.com and automatically returns it as XML to be inserted into any Word document or e-mail -- thereby transforming a user's desktop into a .NET connected smart client giving access to WhitePages.com's directory information in an intuitive and on-demand basis.
