SYWARE®'s Visual CE® Database Development Tool Supports Intermec Windows Mobile with Integrated Scanner

Windows Mobile Database Development Software Enables Easy, Affordable Bar Code Scanning.

CAMBRIDGE, MA, U.S.A. - June 19, 2008 - SYWARE, Inc., a leading developer of intuitive database tools for business and personal productivity, today announced that it has enhanced its popular database development software, Visual CE, to support Intermec Windows Mobile devices having an integrated bar code scanner. The combined solution allows organizations with limited resources to quickly develop databases for a wide variety of scanning tasks, from inventory control to transportation to health care.

SYWARE's Visual CE, together with Intermec's Windows Mobile devices, enables companies to implement their own custom designed and low-cost scanning solutions. Visual CE's intuitive drag-and-drop interface allows users to create powerful data collection and information access applications with the extensive functionality typically available only through expensive high-end programming.

In inventory control, for example, Visual CE can be used to build database forms on a desktop PC. The forms are then downloaded to the Intermec Windows Mobile device used by the warehouse staff. The bar code being scanned contains a number which is linked to inventory information in the Visual CE database, such as item description, vendor, min/max shelf quantities, part number, and cost. As staff scan the bar code, the number is displayed in the database form, along with pertinent inventory information. All data collected via the scanner can be easily synchronized with the desktop PC database, thereby allowing comparison of the actual stock on the shelves with the information stored in the database.

"With Visual CE, users can quickly build custom applications for their Intermec Windows Mobile devices," said Sy Danberg, president of SYWARE, Inc. "The nominal price for the product makes it an excellent choice for small to medium-sized organizations seeking an integrated scanning solution."

Visual CE

Visual CE allows users to build their own databases and create custom forms in a matter of minutes. Available in Personal, Professional, or Mobile 360 Editions, the software is designed to support the wealth of features available in Windows Mobile devices, including data synchronization, wireless communication, and image support.

Programmers and business professionals alike can use Visual CE to create a variety of database and forms applications. Applications draw from a set of common controls: labels, edit boxes, note boxes, check boxes, radio buttons, command buttons, and drop down lists. Font control, device-based printing, timestamps, Digital Ink (scribble), and simple calculations are also supported. Additional features include support for cameras, grids, data filtering, wild card searches, password protection, and calculations across records. Controls can be sized, dragged, and positioned as necessary using the desktop WYSIWYG development environment.

The Professional and Mobile 360 Editions of Visual CE allow developers to create any number of applications and distribute them to an unlimited number of end-users, royalty-free.

Pricing & Delivery

Visual CE applications can be created for any Microsoft Windows Mobile, Windows CE, Pocket PC, Smartphone, or Pocket PC Phone Edition handheld. Visual CE Personal Edition, with full forms design, relational database, and synchronization capabilities, is priced at $129. Visual CE Professional Edition, which includes all the features of the Personal Edition as well as royalty-free distribution rights, is priced at $399. Visual CE is also sold as one component of SYWARE, Inc.'s cost saving Mobile 360 Suites, which include additional mobility tools, such as mEnable wireless connectivity software, Report CE reporting and printing software, and sqlceEnable SQL Everywhere supporting software.
