Bachmann Software Makes Document Printing
Available for the Palm OS Platform

New PrintBoy Documents to be Demonstrated at PalmSource 2000

SPARTA, N.J., - December 11, 2000 - Today, Bachmann Software introduced PrintBoy Documents, a new software product that leverages Palm™ handheld users' ability to efficiently manage documents. PrintBoy Documents will be demonstrated this week during PalmSource™ 2000, the premier annual conference and trade show for the Palm OS® platform developers and solution providers.

PrintBoy Documents is the first standalone commercial software product that allows Palm users to print documents directly from their handheld device. This versatile new product works with any document converted to the standard "doc" format. PrintBoy Documents effectively supports printing of text, html, Word, RTF, and PDF files stored on any Palm handheld.

While previous PrintBoy products introduced the ability to print items such as datebook, address, to do and memo entries, this addition of documents opens up a whole new level of utility for PDA users. Indeed, it is the ability to efficiently carry and print documents that will allow users to replicate their laptops or briefcase full of files.

"The Palm™ handheld has proven capable of carrying virtually any type of document the mobile professional needs. Our ability to aid them in wirelessly printing these documents should give them the ultimate efficiency seek in this valuable tool," said Glenn Bachmann, company president and CEO. Bachmann continued, "We believe that carrying documents is convenient, however reading them on a 3 ˝" screen is not practical. PrintBoy Documents is the first product that will allow users to access and/or share their information easily."

PrintBoy users are expressing their delight with the software. Barbara Levin, a controller at a non-profit educational institution, remarked, "I love to write, and I travel frequently. My Palm handheld enables me to compose on the road, but editing is difficult on the tiny screen. With PrintBoy Documents, I can effectively edit my work and share my documents with others. Using both PrintBoy and PrintBoy Documents, I now can print just about anything at just about any time!"

Priced at US$19.99, PrintBoy Documents can be purchased by visiting Bachmann Software's on-line store at www.bachmannsoftware.com or calling (973) 729-9427.
