Esual Software Inc.s products are aimed at businesses trying to make Web sites, e-business applications, intranets and extranets more interactive while alleviating the burden on back-end servers. Key to the companys products are Esual Executables, applications that can be loaded onto a clients Web page. The library of executables includes Smart Search, which speeds product or topic selection; Quick Search, which eases Web site navigation; Animator, which enables site developers to make objects move; and Active List, which sorts up to 4,000 rows of data. The executables are designed to solve problems from slow Web site response time to an overly complex site. Theyre also used to attract users to a site and to keep them there once theyre logged in.
The executables run on the Web site as it is loaded. Visitors can configure the type of search they want to do via the executables, which take much of that load off the servers, said Esual President and CEO Bruno Saint Cast. "Before, you had a thin, dumb client or a fat, rich client," said Saint Cast, whose company opened a San Francisco office last week. "Now you can have thin and rich."
