Bachmann Software Expands Printing Support for Palm Powered Spreadsheets to Include MiniCalc

PrintBoy extends its market leadership by supporting top Palm OS spreadsheet applications

SPARTA, N.J., - June 19, 2001 Today, Bachmann Software introduced its newest version of PrintBoy, which extends printing support of Palm Powered™ spreadsheets to Solutions In Hand’s popular MiniCalc spreadsheet application. As the first Palm OS® software to support spreadsheet printing, PrintBoy Deluxe continues to set the pace for advanced printing functionality from Palm handhelds.

With third party spreadsheet applications now among the most popular Palm OS software products, users are finding that the ability to wirelessly print to infrared printers facilitates the reading and sharing of their work. Just as spreadsheets are routinely printed in the office to more easily view or share with associates, PrintBoy brings the same versatility to MiniCalc users. Whether a profit and loss report, sales statistics or forecast model, handheld computer users are demanding the same level of functionality as they enjoy in their office in terms of features, formulas, layout, and printing.

Earlier this year, Bachmann Software announced support for Cutting Edge Software's Quicksheet spreadsheet. With today's announcement of printing support for MiniCalc users, the company now offers most Palm Powered spreadsheet users wireless printing capabilities.

“Wireless printing of spreadsheets is one of the more frequent requests from our customers and we are delighted to add the power of PrintBoy to MiniCalc,” stated Alexander Bootman, Solutions In Hand’s president. “The PrintBoy product has earned a reputation for quality, and we believe it will be a valuable complement to our spreadsheet.”

“MiniCalc has earned a very strong following in the marketplace,” noted Glenn Bachmann, Bachmann Software’s president and CEO. “Offering PrintBoy support for popular business applications like MiniCalc creates a whole new level of utility on the Palm OS. Computer users insist on the ability to print documents, spreadsheets and databases, regardless of whether they are working at their desks, in an airport or in a client’s conference room. Our goal is to provide them with easy access to printed copies of their critical business documents whenever and wherever they need them.”
