Bachmann Software Announces Wireless File Exchange for Classrooms Using Palm OS Handhelds

FilePoint Classroom Edition enables teachers and students to easily exchange classroom assignments, quizzes, and other materials over the network

Orlando, FL (January 27, 2005)... Today at the Florida Educational Technology Conference in Orlando, Bachmann Software (www.bachmannsoftware.com), a leader in wireless productivity software for handhelds and smartphones, announced FilePoint Classroom Edition, a new workgroup software product aimed at solving the problem of wireless file exchange between teachers and students who use Palm OS handhelds in K-12 classrooms.

Using FilePoint Classroom Edition, teachers can create assignments, quizzes and other classroom materials on their workstations, and distribute them wirelessly to their classroom’s Palm OS handhelds over the network. Once on the handheld, students can work on their assignments, and individually submit them back to the teacher when completed.

FilePoint Classroom Edition works with any Palm OS handheld that is capable of achieving a wireless network connection, including PalmOne’s Tungsten C and T series, as well as any Palm OS handheld used in conjunction with the Enfora Wireless Portfolio or other Wi-Fi or Bluetooth wireless add-on. FilePoint Classroom is also fully compatible with Bachmann’s popular PrintBoy wireless printing software, used widely by schools in all 50 states.

At FETC, Bachmann Software is partnering with Enfora, maker of the Enfora Wireless Portfolio for PalmOne handhelds, in the exhibit hall, booth 1048 in the PalmOne Neighborhood. More information about FilePoint Classroom Edition, PrintBoy, and Bachmann’s full product line of handheld software and accessories is available at the exhibit hall booth.

FilePoint Classroom Edition will be available for purchase directly from Bachmann Software beginning in February 2005. Normally priced at $149 per classroom, Bachmann is offering special introductory education pricing of $99 per classroom for purchase orders received before March 31, 2005.
