Bachmann Software & Services Renews License Agreement with Palm

Print Manager™ Included in MultiMail Pro Application

SPARTA, N.J., - SPARTA, N.J. February 20, 2001 Bachmann Software & Services announced today a renewed license agreement with Palm Inc., a pioneer in the field of mobile and wireless Internet solutions and a leading provider of handheld computers.

The agreement, originally established in 1999, allows Palm to integrate Bachmann Print Manager into the Palm MultiMail Pro software application. Print Manager is a printing engine that enables the MultiMail Pro e-mail application to include printing support among its user features.

"E-mail is an important handheld application that frequently requires the transfer of data to a print media for messaging, contacts, notes or calendars", said Jerry Jalaba, vice president of enterprise at Palm Inc. "Alliances with organizations such as Bachmann help Palm provide comprehensive enterprise solutions, including the ability to print e-mail from a Palm Handheld."

"While e-mail presents a host of conveniences, users still find the need to print their content. Our Print Manager software allows the MultiMail application to seamlessly include printing support," said Dan Reuvers, vice president of business development for Bachmann Software & Services. "As handheld computing devices become more pervasive, printing will become an increasingly important function".
