    BETHESDA, Md. and VICTORIA, B.C., May 5 /PRNewswire/ -- dtSearch Corp., a
 leading supplier of end-user, enterprise and developer text retrieval
 software, and NewHeights, an OEM provider of personal communication management
 software for IP-PBX and hosted telephony phone systems, today announced that
 NewHeights has licensed the dtSearch Text Retrieval Engine to enhance its
 Desktop Assistant(TM) 3.0 software.  NewHeights will embed the dtSearch Engine
 functionality into a Knowledge Management Module for Desktop Assistant.  The
 new Module will upgrade an installed base of over 10,000 Desktop Assistant
 software clients throughout North America, EMEA and Latin America.
     "NewHeights Desktop Knowledge Management extends the value of enterprise
 applications like Microsoft Office(R) and Lotus Notes(R) by incorporating them
 into the management of real-time business communications," says Owen Matthews,
 CEO of NewHeights Software. "The dtSearch Engine ensures that our users will
 never have to hunt for information associated with an incoming caller. Having
 documents related to a call at your fingertips greatly enhances
 professionalism and improves communication responsiveness -- benefits normally
 associated with expensive call center solutions."
     According to Matthews, NewHeights selected the dtSearch Text Retrieval
 Engine for its rapid document indexing and retrieval along with its flexible
 Application Programming Interfaces (APIs). "The dtSearch APIs were easy to use
 and enabled us to integrate document and email retrieval into a real-time
 communication environment, where a fraction of a second matters when you are
 dealing with an incoming call."
     "We are very pleased to be working with NewHeights on such an innovative
 application of our Text Retrieval Engine technology," said David Thede,
 president of dtSearch Corp. "The partnership will substantially improve
 telephony-integrated knowledge management."
     Mitel Networks(TM) is now selling Desktop Assistant, re-branded Your
 Assistant, with its 3300 Integrated Communications Platform (ICP). The
 dtSearch-enabled Desktop Knowledge Management Module will be generally
 available through Mitel Networks Your Assistant in Q3, 2004.
