Bachmann Software Partners With Corsoft to Add Printing to Mobile Email Solution
PrintBoy to support wireless printing of email and attachments from PDAs
April 16, 2002
Today, Bachmann Software and Corsoft announced the addition of printing support for Corsoft's Aileron email service. Aileron provides an easy means for users of Palm Powered devices to access their email while on-the-go. The addition of PrintBoy support to Aileron adds the practical function of printing emails and document attachments.
While many envisioned the day of the "paperless" office, the reality is that the use of email in an organization has been demonstrated to increase paper consumption by an average of 40%. People simply prefer to print their emails and attachments for easier reading, editing and sharing, and the addition of printing support to Corsoft's product brings it closer to the kind of solution to which office-based workers are accustomed. PrintBoy supports printing of email messages, as well as document attachments saved by Documents to Go, Quickoffice and Wordsmith, all of which are partners of Corsoft.
"Our customers have been vocal about the absence of the ability to print their email messages," said Chirag Patel, Corsoft's president. "The addition of PrintBoy strengthens Aileron as a complete mobile messaging solution."
"With more than 108 billion tons of paper consumed in the U.S. alone, workers' behavior proves that being able to print their data is important," said Dan Reuvers, Bachmann Software's vice president of business development. "PrintBoy makes it easy for mobile workers to access hard copies of their data - no matter where they are."
Both companies will provide reciprocal access to each other's products, via website links, as well as the ability to order both products from either site. Corsoft is a service which sells for as little as $30/year. PrintBoy Deluxe is available for purchase for just $29.99. For details, visit www.bachmannsoftware.com/cor.
