West Des Moines, Iowa, April 21, 1998 - Prairie Group, Inc. and CE Software, Inc. today announce that Iowa-based Prairie Group will take over development and distribution of QuickConference IP. CE Software developed this instant messaging application for use within small to mid-sized businesses running Microsoft Windows or Apple's Mac OS. Prairie Group will ship QuickConference IP in early May.

QuickConference IP brings the convenience of instant communication to any TCP/IP network. A key tool for businesses that need real-time collaboration, QuickConference complements, but does not require, QuickMail Office or any other open standards E-mail system.

Prairie Group's development of QuickConference continues under the direction of lead engineer Donald Brown. A veteran developer, Brown spearheaded QuickConference IP at CE Software.

"The transfer of QuickConference to Prairie Group benefits everyone involved with QuickMail," said Christian F. Gurney, president and CEO of CE Software. "It allows CE Software to concentrate on continually improving QuickMail in order to better serve customers. Plus, any business that needs real-time communication now has a low-cost, low-maintenance solution in Prairie Group's new product."
