Bachmann Software Launches Partnership with Enfora L.P. on Wireless Handheld Connectivity

Enfora Wi-Fi Portfolio lets PalmOne handheld users wirelessly print, retrieve files and perform routine backups on their network with Bachmann’s Mobile Utilities suite

Sparta, NJ (September 17, 2004)... - Bachmann Software (www.bachmannsoftware.com), a leader in wireless productivity software for handhelds and smartphones, and Enfora (www.enfora.com), a leader in enabling GSM/GPRS, and 802.11 wireless data solutions, today announced a partnership that expands the wireless networking capabilities of PalmOne handhelds in Wi-Fi networks around the world.

Under the arrangement, Enfora L.P. will include a 30-day evaluation version of Bachmann’s Mobile Utilities wireless software suite on a companion CD, shipped with its Wireless LAN Portfolio for PalmOne handhelds. Enfora’s Wi-Fi Portfolio is an attractive leather/mesh case designed to function with PalmOne handhelds, providing all the necessary functionality to connect the user to virtually any 802.11b/g Wi-Fi network. In addition, it includes a self-contained, long-life battery with the convenience of simultaneously charging both the Portfolio and the PDA with one power cable. The organizer provides space for student ID or credit cards and zips closed to a small durable carrying case that fits into a pocket, backpack or purse to provide that extra protection necessary for a PDA in today’s mobile environment.

“The combination of Enfora’s Wireless LAN Portfolio with our Bachmann Mobile Utilities suite is a perfect match, giving PalmOne handheld users unprecedented power to wirelessly retrieve files, print, and perform routine backups from their handheld directly to Wi-Fi enabled home and office networks” said Glenn Bachmann, president and founder of Bachmann Software. “We are pleased to be partnering with Enfora on such a great product”.

Bachmann Mobile Utilities contains three popular Palm software products from Bachmann Software:

  • PrintBoy - Wirelessly print documents, spreadsheets, and other files, right from your handheld to virtually any printer
  • FilePoint – A complete file manager for handhelds and smartphones, network-enabled for wireless retrieval of documents and other files from standard Windows networks
  • Bachmann Mobile Backup - Safely and easily backup your handheld files either using a wireless connection to your desktop, network server or your memory expansion card

As part of the partnership, Bachmann has also agreed to offer a bundle of the Enfora Wi-Fi Portfolio, complete with a full license of Bachmann Mobile Utilities, for sale on the Bachmann Software secure online store at http://www.bachmannsoftware.com.

“Bachmann’s suite of powerful mobile applications offers users the unique ability to print and manage their files wirelessly, thus making them more productive even while physically away from their office or school networks,” Said Christian Allred, Vice President of Sales for Enfora. “We are excited to join efforts with Bachmann Software as a way of offering PalmOne customers a strong solution of High speed wireless accessibility for their PDAs”.
