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.”

Bachmann Restructures Software Product Lineup

In conjunction with the announced bundling arrangement with DataViz, Bachmann today introduced new versions of its FilePoint and Bachmann Mobile Utilities products, as follows.

  • FilePoint Wireless Edition offers basic Windows Networking file access through wireless connections for handhelds and smartphones. FilePoint Wireless is made available for OEM licensing and is bundled with selected third party software, handhelds and accessories.
  • FilePoint Premium Edition is Bachmann’s flagship file manager, and includes the networking capabilities of FilePoint Wireless as well as a full set of office features such as expansion card memory management, launching of programs, music and other file types from the handheld or expansion card, and rich folder organization capabilities.
  • For users of non-wireless handhelds, FilePoint Desktop Edition enables features such as folder organization, expansion card management, and automatic file conversion from a Windows PC via the Palm HotSync cradle.

Finally, as part of today’s announcement, Bachmann introduced Bachmann Mobile Utilities v4.0 , which bundles together for the first time Bachmann’s popular PrintBoy, FilePoint, and Mobile Backup software products in a single powerful utility suite.

“We are thrilled that DataViz has chosen to bundle FilePoint Wireless Edition as the best way to introduce wireless file access to Documents To Go customers”, said Glenn Bachmann, president and founder of Bachmann Software. “With instant wireless access to native Word, Excel and Powerpoint files stored on home or office networks, Documents To Go customers can truly experience the power of a mobile office in their handheld or smartphone.”
