NetLYNX sold to local firm

NetLYNX Internet Services has been bought by Fate Technologies, a Colorado Springs-based web-site developer.

NetLYNX was formerly part of Sisna Internet Service Exchange Inc.

Fate bought the Internet provider to increase its services to customers. The joined company now employs eight people and will add four by the end of 1996. It also has hired approximately a dozen independent contractors who design web sites, take orders, and handle database duties.

The combined company plans to offer services that haven’t been available locally before. One new service is called the Web-matic. A user pulls up a web page and the service asks questions about what kind of graphics, background, and text design the user wants. The user then pays a fee, which NetLYNX President Joe Latrell expects to be about $69, and the page is done.

"With this, we can put a business on-line within 24 hours," said Latrell.

The company has also leased space inside the Innovative Electronics building at 517 S. Cascade Ave. The co-op of businesses located there will allow NetLYNX to provide a recording studio for voice, video, and midi-a form of music sequencing. Itwill be able to offer its customers full tape duplication and the ability to cut master compact discs.

The company plans to expand into Pueblo, Grand Junction, and Trinidad within the next year.
