Bachmann Software Introduces First Spreadsheet Printing Application for Palm Powered Devices

Launches PrintBoy™ Spreadsheets - Quicksheet™ Edition and PrintBoy™ Office

SPARTA, N.J., - SPARTA, N.J. February 27, 2001 Bachmann Software & Services today is introducing two new applications aimed at enabling mobile professionals to wirelessly print spreadsheets directly from their Palm Powered™ handheld computers. PrintBoy™ Spreadsheets - Quicksheet™ Edition and PrintBoy™ Office now enable handheld users to print their spreadsheet files directly from their handheld computers.

PrintBoy Spreadsheets and PrintBoy Office were created to support wireless printing for Cutting Edge Software's popular Quicksheet spreadsheet and Quickoffice productivity suite applications. Spreadsheets have become among the most popular business applications for handheld computers, giving Palm users the ability to collect, view and analyze data from any remote location.

The technical capability to produce a hard copy of a spreadsheet on-the-spot has been in high demand. The introduction of PrintBoy Spreadsheets and PrintBoy Office finally gives users the same level of overall printing capabilities they enjoy at their desktop. For example, a Quicksheet user might collect figures while negotiating with a client and would like to offer a copy of the resulting spreadsheet. Another example would be of a field service technician who needs to provide a customer with an instant price quote for completing a job. Equipped with PrintBoy and Quicksheet on his or her Palm device, a technician with a portablee IR printer can easily provide the printed quote for the customer.

In January of this year, Bachmann Software and Cutting Edge Software worked together to offer a PrintBoy Documents/Quickword bundle, giving users an easy means of printing text/DOC files wirelessly from their handheld computers. With the release of PrintBoy Spreadsheets and PrintBoy Office, users will now have the ability to print either their Quickword or Quicksheet files with ease.

"Our goal with Quicksheet and Quickoffice has always been to enable mobile professionals to become more productive, even as the dynamics of their work keeps them further away from their desktop PCs," says Jeff Musa, president and CEO of Cutting Edge Software. "Providing PrintBoy functionality to our customers is another way we can help our customers work more efficiently-no matter where they are."

"PrintBoy Office is the perfect complement to Quickoffice," stated Dan Reuvers, vice president of Bachmann Software. "By offering Palm users the ability to print their documents and spreadsheet files, we have created a truly mobile business center. We place very high importance on being first to market and working with the content leaders. The introduction of PrintBoy Spreadsheet - Quicksheet Edition and PrintBoy Office achieves both goals."
