Ntractive Previews Elements SBM, A Hybrid Desktop/Web Application

Startup company Ntractive gave attendees of Macworld San Francisco a glimpse at its upcoming product Elements SBM.

Elements SBM tackles an old problem (small business management) in a new and rather innovative way: by creating a hybrid desktop/web application. The result promises to be a solution that gives users the accessibility of web applications with the power, look, and feel of a desktop application. Features planned for 1.0 will include an administrative interface, home screen, calendar, email, in/out, contacts, notes, sales, service, marketing, developer, projects, internet, images, and document modules.

The first installment of Elements SBM will be for Mac OS X, and will feature integration with iChat, Address Book, iPhoto, the Dock, and will support Drag and Drop, amongst others. However, because the application is built utilizing WebKit, versions for the iPhone and Windows are also in the pipeline.

Ntractive says that it already has over 550 companies signed up for a beta coming this Spring.
