History

In 1992, SmartMax Software —the brainchild of entrepreneur and owner Eric Weber— was born. That same year we debuted our first product, Excalibur BBS, an award-winning and undiminished success. With the first graphical Windows-based bulletin board system under his belt, Eric felt further inspired to build his team and pursue software development in other arenas.

As the Internet gained popularity, we saw an opportunity to enter the Internet Server ring by creating a robust, user-friendly e-mail server for businesses. In 1996 we succeeded, with the inception of MailMax. Highly successful, MailMax Internet Server for Windows still fulfills many companies e-mail needs 16 years later.

Live Chat emerged in the mid 90s to assist Web site customer service and sale… our savvy team took note of many shortcomings. Building on the momentum of Excalibur and MailMax, we set our “sights”, and developer expertise on the solution. In 2004, our highly-experienced team began a quest to remedy the bevy of deficiencies of Live Chat and create a state-of-the-art solution that clients could install on their own servers. This product is known as SightMax!

Launched in January, 2005, and written in .NET, SightMax Live Chat, has become an award-winning leader of Live Chat solutions. But we are just getting started, with a nearly infinite list of features to develop for many years to come, the future is out-of-SIGHT!
