Bachmann Software’s FilePoint Wireless Edition Bundled with new DataViz Documents To Go 7
Enables wireless retrieval of documents from desktop or shared network folders
Sparta, NJ (August 16, 2004)... - Bachmann Software today announced that a version of its FilePoint software for Palm OS handhelds and smartphones is now bundled as part of the latest version of DataViz® Inc’s popular Documents To Go® software. Customers who purchase either Documents To Go Premium Edition or Documents To Go Total Office Edition can now use the included FilePoint Wireless Edition to enable their handheld or smartphone to access, browse and copy documents, spreadsheets and other files to and from shared network drives, just as they do today from their laptop or desktop computer.
FilePoint Wireless Edition’s explorer-like user interface lets Palm OS handheld users browse computers, network shares and network file folders just as you would from your desktop computer or laptop. A copy function allows users to copy documents and other files between shared network folders and the handhelds main memory or available expansion cards. Once on the handheld, FilePoint Wireless lets users open and edit their documents using Documents To Go.
”Documents To Go customers are the quintessential mobile professionals,” said Rob Hoxie, director of business development, DataViz. “Including FilePoint Wireless with Documents To Go ensures that our customers don’t have to worry about forgetting a crucial document, whether they are in a meeting or on the road. Now they can easily get onto their corporate network and retrieve and work with their files.”
