Bachmann Software Announces a Free PrintBoy Software Promotion With Purchase of Infrared Adapter

SPARTA, N.J. - November 1, 2000 - Today, Bachmann Software and Services introduced a complete wireless printing solution which bundles its popular PrintBoy software with the Infrared Printer adapter that converts a printer to accept IR reception. This wireless printing package includes the Actisys™ IR 100M infrared cable which allows a printer to accept infrared signals from over 100cm away. Powered by an AC adapter (included), it automatically switches between IR wireless and cable-based printing.

"While PrintBoy has become the most popular wireless printing software for the Palm™ handheld, many printers are not as universally equipped to communicate via IR as today's handheld computers. Therefore, we want to provide the entire solution for those customers looking to perform wireless printing on their existing printers," said Glenn Bachmann, company president and CEO. "For a limited time, we will be including PrintBoy for free when customers purchase the IR enabling cable from our on-line store."

The Actisys IRDA printer adapter is $99.00 plus shipping and handling. The price includes a free copy of PrintBoy; a savings of nearly $20.00.
