Bachmann Software Launches Bachmann Utilities Suite for Palm OS Handhelds at PalmSource Open House Event
Suite of printing and file management tools enables mobile professionals to increase productivity while on-the-go
September 26, 2002...
Today at PalmSource, Inc.'s Open House event, celebrating its move into a new location and completing its separation from Palm, Inc., Bachmann Software is pleased to announce that its FilePoint Pro and PrintBoy Anywhere applications are now available as a bundle named Bachmann Utilities. The new application bundle provides users of Palm OS® handhelds with all of the essential file management and printing capabilities that users take for granted on their desktop PCs, enabling a wider range of business functions to be performed while away from the office.
PrintBoy Anywhere allows Palm OS users to print their business-critical information by selecting their wireless method of choice, and sending their data to the printer. Whether the users work in an environment supporting network, Bluetooth, 802.11b (also known as Wi-Fi), have modem access, or infrared, PrintBoy Anywhere allows them to produce their data to the printer of their choice.
FilePoint™ Pro is a versatile file management tool that allows Palm PoweredÔ device users to manage their data from their PCs. FilePoint Pro takes all the features of Bachmann Software's popular handheld version, FilePoint, and makes them available on the desktop as well. In short, FilePoint Pro enables users to organize their device's data on their desktop PCs, and all changes to the file organization will take place during synchronization with the handheld.
"With more business-critical documents, databases and applications being stored on handhelds and expansion cards, we have provided the easiest means available for organizing and managing that handheld data and printing it directly from a user's device," said Glenn Bachmann, Bachmann Software's president and author of Palm Programming; The Authoritative Solution. "The creation of the Bachmann Utilities bundle is in response to the vast number of our business customers who depend on each of our separate utility applications to allow them to leave their laptops behind once and for all."
Bachmann Utilities retails for US$69.99, however as a special introductory offer, it can be purchased for $59.99. Bachmann Utilities is available at the company's Web site, www.bachmannsoftware.com, and other online resources for Palm OS software, such as PalmGear and Handango.
