PrintBoy Documents by Bachmann Software Now Enables Users of Palm PoweredTM Devices to Print WordSmithTM Documents
Mobile professionals now have one more way to print documents on-the-road
SPARTA, N.J. March 1, 2001
Bachmann Software & Services today introduced an updated version of PrintBoy Documents that includes printing support for Blue Nomad's popular new WordSmith(tm) word processing application for Palm PoweredTM handheld computers. In addition to support for plain text document printing, PrintBoy Documents is the first to support printing of WordSmith's Rich Text Formatting (RTF) file format from a Palm OS(r) device.
Bachmann Software's PrintBoy Documents adds important printing support to the many document readers/editors for personal data assistants (PDA). This announcement, coming on the heels of Bachmann's introduction of spreadsheet printing earlier this week, is another example of their commitment to being first to market in providing long-awaited support for the most popular PDA applications on the market, such as WordSmith.
Consumers expect today's PC-based word processors to include printing support among their most basic functions. With more users of PalmTM devices adding word processing capabilities to their handhelds, many are finding the need to produce printed documentation while away from their desks. The expectation for printing capabilities from palmtop computers is rising proportionately. PrintBoy Documents resolves this need with document printing that rivals that of desktop applications.
"With WordSmith, our objective has been to provide mobile users with more word processing power for their PDAs than ever before," stated Alexander Hinds, M.D., president and CEO of Blue Nomad. "With the addition of printing support from Bachmann Software, we have achieved this goal - and then some."
"We are very pleased to be the first to offer WordSmith users the ability to produce their content in printed form," stated Dan Reuvers, Vice President of Bachmann Software. "By adding printing support to the WordSmith word processor, customers can create and produce their work wherever they are. Together, our applications create a virtual publishing suite on a handheld computer."
