Laszlo Systems Announces Locator; Rich Internet Application Interactive Mapping Solution

- Laszlo Studios Brings New Solution to Market; La Quinta Corporation's Travel Web Site is First Example -

SAN MATEO, Calif., April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- Laszlo Systems, developer of the Laszlo open source platform and provider of rich Internet applications (RIAs) and services, today announced the availability of its Laszlo Locator professional services solution, delivered by the award-winning Laszlo Studios design and development team.

The Locator Solution is an interactive online mapping experience that provides a substantially improved Web experience for obtaining location-specific information in a responsive, single-screen user interface. An example of the Locator Solution can be seen in operation at the La Quinta Inns' Web site.

Laszlo Locator is ideal for content providers with directory listings, as well as for hotel chains, retail stores, and large corporations that need to provide easy access to location-specific information. Laszlo Locator helps companies drive business, improve customer service, and extend their consumer marketing brand through a productive user-experience.

Adam Wolff, Director of Laszlo Studios, said, "Laszlo Locator makes older online map applications look dated. It's easy to embed, and can be used anywhere location-based information is displayed. The end result is an elegant user experience that enables customers to find information quickly, and extends a positive user-centric brand."

Laszlo Locator showcases the ease of use of rich Internet applications. It gives consumers the information they need within a single Web page instead of multiple pages with confusing navigation.

Wolff continued, "Laszlo Locator is an excellent example of Laszlo Studios - our professional services team's - application development expertise. They're a ready resource for companies and ISVs seeking to bring open source, Laszlo-powered applications to market quickly and cost-effectively."

Laszlo standards-based rich Internet applications, such as Laszlo Locator, can be deployed standalone or with the Laszlo platform from any J2EE application server or Java servlet container running under Linux, UNIX, Windows or Mac OS X. Laszlo Locator can also work dynamically with an existing backend to simplify updates information or can be a feature of a larger application to provide intuitive display of location-based information.

Laszlo Locator is available now and more information can be accessed at
