Welcome to BioExchange.com!

also integrated with today's latest in wireless and SMS (short messaging system) 
technology, provided by MobileAirwaves.com, a leader in wireless technology

handicapped accessibility services by providing voice-synthesis support and a web design 
that is compatible with third-party systems.

The e-commerce offerings on BioExchange.com include an advanced Liquidation and 
Procurement Marketplace, which are feature-rich auctions and RFP / RFQ systems, 
respectively.  Vendors in the industry can take advantage of the Hosted Storefront 
technology, which allows product companies in the Life Sciences to set up an e-

Employer's functionality is a multi-user Human Resources management system, which

BioExchange.com also provides powerful community features including free e-mail, 
personal calendars, address books, file sharing, chat, and discussion boards.  An Instant 
Messenger is also included, which is compatible with Microsoft's MSN Messenger 
Service, Yahoo! Messenger, and the ICQ Instant Messenger, providing an integrated 
solution that combines the net's best IM resources in one simple and easy-to-use solution.

Users of the community have the added ability of creating private or public groups on 
BioExchange.com, where clubs, organizations, and other communities can set up an 
online groupware application with shared contacts, shared calendar, a group message 
board, group chat room, and file sharing within the group's members.
During this time, we are trying to sign up as many organizations for our community.  We 
have a very feature-intensive Community section that is of particular interest to your 
organization and community.  It functions similarly to Yahoo's Clubs, if you are familiar 
with their web site -- we can create a special, private group for your club or group that 
would allow you to have all of our Group features with administrative functions.  You 
can set up a shared contact manager in the address book, a shared calendar, and a private 
message boards and chat rooms, all of which are private for your organization.   In 
addition, each member is given a free e-mail and Instant Messenger account as well.  The 
Instant Messenger is way-cool -- it works with ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo's Instant 
Messenger services as well as with itself, providing an integrated, cross-network solution 
and private messaging system for yourself and your organization.  The only restriction is 
that you must be a member of our site and our Community at large.
