Bachmann Software Introduces Four Wireless Printing Products

New Releases to be Demonstrated at PalmSource 2000

SANTA CLARA, C.A. - December 11, 2000 - Bachmann Software & Services today introduced four new products, all of which will be demonstrated this week during PalmSource™ 2000, the premier annual conference and trade show for Palm OS® platform developers and solution providers.

The products-PrintBoy 2.2, PrintBoy Documents, PrintBoy Deluxe and Bachmann Print Manager 3.2-are being demonstrated during the five-day conference, which is being hosted by Palm, Inc. at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, Calif., Dec. 11-15.

Each of the new releases allow handheld computer users to graphically print almost any information stored on their handheld. Collectively, Bachmann's array of printing products is designed to dramatically increase the overall business productivity of Palm™ handheld users, said Glenn Bachmann, company president and CEO.

"We continue to develop and make available new and better ways to print anything users have stored on the Palm handheld," Bachmann said. "With the addition of our enhanced suite of PrintBoy Solutions, we further our commitment to our customers by making printing practical and affordable for all PDA users."

PrintBoy 2.2
PrintBoy 2.2 is a suite of applets that prints appointments, addresses, to-do lists, memos, e-mail and information stored on the clipboard directly to most printers via infrared or serial connection. Offering full graphical support for the Hewlett-Packard DeskJet™ products, this latest PrintBoy release is the only product on the market to offer graphical output for the HP DeskJet 350™ mobile printer. PrintBoy 2.2 is priced at US$14.99.

PrintBoy Documents
PrintBoy Documents is the first stand-alone commercial software product to allow users to print documents directly from their handhelds. Working with any document converted to the standard .doc format, PrintBoy Documents effectively supports printing of text, html, Word, RTF and PDF files. PrintBoy Documents is priced at US$19.99.

PrintBoy Deluxe
PrintBoy Deluxe combines the functionality of PrintBoy 2.2 and PrintBoy Documents with two additional PrintBoy applications: Text Notes and Scribble Notes. These features enable users to create and print either a text or scribbled note, enabling the sharing of information captured on the run. PrintBoy Deluxe is priced at US$32.99.

PrintManager 3.2
PrintManager 3.2, the robust graphical print engine driving all PrintBoy solutions, now allows software developers to integrate the many features of PrintBoy into their own software products. This product includes a full suite of printer drivers and a software developer's kit, which enables developers to easily add printing capabilities to their Palm OS software applications. PrintManager 3.2 is priced at US$34.99.
