Bachmann Software & Services Renews License Agreement with Palm
Print Manager Included in MultiMail Pro Application
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".
Bachmann Print Manager is a standard Palm OS Shared
Library that includes a
"generic" printer driver that provides a base set of functionality
for all printers. Print Managerís print driver serves
as the basic print engine used to power Bachmann's
end-user printing software, including PrintBoy 2.2a,
PrintBoy Documents and PrintBoy Deluxe.
