DataMyte Chooses SYWARE's Visual CE® Software and Handheld Computers for New Factory Floor Data Collection System

DataMyte DigiForm™ replaces paper filing systems with electronic forms based on Visual CE database and forms builder software

Cambridge, MA (May 20, 2002)-For manufacturers, gathering data about the quality and quantity of products being produced is of utmost importance, both to the timely completion of orders and to the bottom-line profitability of the company. But costly printed forms and data entry errors have plagued the production line, resulting in higher costs and inaccurate data. That's why DataMyte ( has spent the last 37 years developing portable data collection devices that accurately collect production data anywhere, any time.

DataMyte's newest device, the DataMyte DigiForm, takes industrial data collection to a new level by combining a ruggedized pen tablet computer with SYWARE's ( Visual CE database and forms builder software. Now, plant floor personnel can collect data from anywhere on the plant floor directly into electronic forms.

"Our customers need to collect and send data without leaving their work area," said Mike McCalley, Marketing Services Manager at DataMyte. "The handheld computer gives us a way to get wireless communication onto the plant floor. Visual CE lets operators create a wide variety of custom forms in just minutes and synchronize the data that's collected directly to a database to eliminate entry errors. It's a great, go-anywhere combination."

Intuitive Database & Forms Builder Software
DataMyte now includes SYWARE's Visual CE software with each DataMyte DigiForm data collection device. Visual CE is a full color, relational database and forms builder program. It provides an intuitive, drag-and-drop interface that allows operators to quickly create forms and databases without coding. Forms can be designed and maintained either on the DataMyte DigiForm device or on a desktop computer. In addition, both forms and databases can be run on the handheld device or the desktop. Once the application is developed, records can be easily beamed from one handheld device to another. Other features include pop-up word lists, the ability to create pre-defined data filters, robust font selection, multi-select dropdowns, and calculations on string data. A macro programming capability allows for the easy creation of multi-step sequences.
