Bachmann Software Introduces Expanded Infrared Printing Access to Mobile Professionals
Portable InfraReady™ Adapter Converts Any Printer To Infrared
April 17, 2001
Bachmann Software & Services announced the introduction of their portable InfraReady™ Adapter which allows users to convert any printer to accept infrared beaming of documents. Bachmann’s PrintBoy™ is the most popular printing software for the Palm OS®, allowing handheld users to wirelessly “beam” their documents to a printer. The InfraReady™ Adapter allows mobile workers that depend on their handheld computers to connect the adapter to the parallel port on any printer that doesn’t already have infrared capabilities, and create IR printing access on the spot.
“By providing our customers with the InfraReady Adapter, they can finally depend on their ability to print no matter where they are; even if the printer they want to use doesn’t have an IR port”, stated Dan Reuvers, Vice President of Bachmann Software. “This device is small enough to fit in a suit pocket or purse and at $55, it’s the least expensive method of ensuring the ability to print no matter where you are. With PrintBoy and our new InfraReady™ Adapter, road warriors can enjoy certain access to their documents no matter where they are.”
PrintBoy is helping salespeople close business when the customer is ready to commit, by printing on the spot with the availability of an IR enabled printer. PrintBoy customer Ashok Guha of Memorable Images states, “I have to say that I love my PrintBoy software! My best accomplishment was sitting in the office of a new prospect and drafting an outline of a new sales concept on my Palm that his lobby decor had inspired. While he was intrigued by my thoughts, he asked me to follow up with a hard copy after the meeting. I told him that I'd have a hard copy in his hands within moments, and when I pointed and hit print, he nearly fell out of his chair. We got the contract, and he's one happy customer.”
PrintBoy is the most popular software available to enable wireless printing from Palm Powered™ devices. PrintBoy supports printing of Documents, Spreadsheets, Memos, Calendars, e-mails, Contacts, To-Dos, Graffiti and items saved to the Clipboard. Both PrintBoy and Bachmann’s new InfraReady Adapter are available at Bachmann’s website http://www.bachmannsoftware.com.
