PrintBoy Documents and Quickword Combine to Create Complete Document Management Solution for the Palm OS

SPARTA, New Jersey - January 8, 2001 - Bachmann Software & Services and Cutting Edge Software, Inc. announced today a bundled offering that gives Palm™ handheld computer users a comprehensive document management solution. The combined products include Cutting Edge Software's Quickword™ application with Bachmann Software's PrintBoy Documents. In addition to inviting customers to purchase these compatible products in a single transaction, Palmgear.com, the company's on-line distributor, will offer the products at a 15 percent discount.

Quickword 5.0 is a text document editor and reader application that allows users to work with text and Microsoft Word documents on their Palm organizers. Quickword enables mobile professionals to create, read and edit documents on their handheld devices. While Quickword has become among the most popular document readers/editors for the Palm OS™, until now users have not had a convenient way to print their documents directly from their Palm-powered devices. The introduction of PrintBoy Documents adds a new dynamic to the practicality of managing documents on a handheld device.

"While Quickword has allowed mobile professionals to carry their documents around in their Palm devices, they haven't always been able to produce hard copies when needed," said Glenn Bachmann, president of Bachmann Software & Services. "By enabling Quickword users to print wirelessly from their Palm, they can produce contracts, sales quotes, product information, or anything else they may need, precisely when they need it."

"Quickword has empowered so many people to extend their productivity beyond their office," said Jeff Musa, Cutting Edge Software's president and CEO. "PrintBoy's capacity to add printing to the many features of Quickword brings a whole new level of value to our customers."

Quickword sells for $19.95 and PrintBoy Documents sells for $19.99. However, the two products will be available together on Palmgear HQ for $33.99 as a bundle.

About Quickword

This feature sets the application apart from most text editors, which require a third-party converter for synchronizing Word files with a Palm device. Other features of Quickword include Find and Replace, Auto-Scrolling, and Cut and Paste. Additionally, Quickword offers full compatibility and unmatched performance with the Stowaway keyboard offered for Handspring and Palm devices, as well as the GoType! keyboard from LandWare.
