New Wireless Software Saves Mobile Workers Thousands of Dollars Worth of Time and Gas Wasted
CAMBRIDGE, MA, U.S.A. -July 18, 2005- SYWARE, Inc. announced it has solved a major obstacle faced by millions of frustrated Pocket PC database users who dock their PDAs in cradles to automatically exchange or “sync” information between the enterprise and the field. Until now, hundreds of thousands of people were forced to needlessly commute to and from the field and use other inefficient means to sync information. SYWARE’s software, called mEnable 2.0, solves this problem by eliminating the need for “tethered sync” and enables mobile users to wirelessly sync information without having to dock or place Pocket PCs in cradles. mEnable 2.0 provides workers in the field with wireless access to enterprise data, the ability to run database applications on handhelds and connect to ODBC-enabled databases in real-time or offline, at any time or place.
“With oil prices hovering at just above $61 dollars a barrel- companies and individuals feel the severe pain and cost at the gas pump,” said Sy Danberg, President, SYWARE, Inc. “mEnable obviates the need to needlessly commute to and from the field to sync critical information. As a result, this helps companies and individuals mitigate the costs associated with fuel consumption and wasted commuting time while dropping money to their bottom line,” said Danberg.
The company’s software has an install base of over 100,000 customers in all industries. Customers range in size from Fed-Ex (NYSE: FDX), Tyco Fire & Building Products (NYSE: TYC), and Cendant Car Rental Group (NYSE: CD) to individual and small-to-medium size business users. mEnable complements the company’s Visual CE 9 software product line that empowers people to rapidly create feature-rich database applications, without programming, that can be deployed on any Windows Mobile device wherever they need to work.
This news follows a previous announcement that an international panel of industry experts, sponsored by Microsoft Germany and Pocket PC Magazine Germany, presented SYWARE with a “Best Database Software Award 2004.” “mEnable provides a valuable tool for meeting the needs of the increasingly mobile work force,” Rogers Weed, General Manager of the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) added. mEnable allows any application written in C++, Visual Basic or Visual CE to wirelessly read from or write to any ODBC-enabled data source, such as SQLServer, Oracle, Microsoft Access, and Sybase.
