WhitePages.com Smart Tag Now Available on MS Office 2003 and XP

W3 Data, Inc., a leading provider of online directory assistance services and operators of the WhitePages.com Network, announced that their white pages directory search application and contact database has been incorporated into Microsoft Office System's Office 2003 and Office XP.

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.

Other shortcut features include inserting listing information directly into documents, adding contacts to the Outlook Contacts folder and quick access to on-line maps.

By simply typing a name, address, or phone number into a Word document or e-mail message, a WhitePages.com Smart Tag will automatically appear. With these Smart Tags, users can quickly and easily locate residential and business contact information and insert it right into their working documents.

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.

Also, while working within Word or Outlook, users can quickly and easily access WhitePages.com to perform business and residential searches, reverse address searches and reverse phone searches as well as additional features including: neighborhood look-ups, importing contact information into Microsoft Outlook and performing merges into letters, envelopes, labels, faxes and other documents.
