eGrabber's SDK Adds Free Address Parsing Technology to Applications.

Leading provider of data entry tools releases SDK to"address-parse-enable" any application.

Saratoga, California March 1, 2004 - eGrabber today announced AddressGrabber SDK 1.0, the first generation of the company's Software Development Kit (SDK). This kit allows integration of eGrabber's patented address parsing technology (US Patent No. 6,339,795 B1) into all software applications.

With this free SDK, eGrabber dramatically expands the reach of its technology to all developers of software applications. Any software that has an inbuilt address book can now leverage the use of this engine, which has been fine tuned using feedback from more than ½ million users over a period of 6 years. All application users will be able to automatically process and enter contacts and addresses.

"eGrabber's goal is to provide an accurate parsing technology to all developers at no cost" explained Chandra Bodapati, CEO, eGrabber, "We want everyone to benefit from using our engine, to automatically create records and contacts. This is our major step in helping all our fellow software companies derive a competitive edge."

Historically, parsers are only available at either high licensing costs or at high volume commitments. eGrabber levels the playing fields for all developers by providing the SDK free of charge. Application developers working on various backend (Access Databases, FileMaker Pro, etc.) can develop using any of their favorite development languages and environments.

"The SDK was so easy to use; we integrated it in 1 day. Our users can now add new records into our system with just 1-click. Our application has since gone up 1 level of user-friendliness." says Victor Eydus, CEO, Flaxman Software, "The best deal is, besides the integration hours we put in, there are no huge licensing costs for a sophisticated technology like this. This definitely gives a competitive edge for our product."
