PointBase Expands Reseller Channel to China, Finalizes Agreement With SinoCom Software Group

3/12/2003 - PointBase®, Inc., the leader in Java embedded database products for managing and synchronizing enterprise data across all platforms, announced that global IT consultancy and systems integrator SinoCom Software Group of Beijing will market PointBase relational data management and synchronization products throughout China, Hong Kong and Japan.

SinoCom, founded in 1995, is China’s largest offshore IT outsourcing company and soon will be listed on the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. PointBase will supply its full family of award-winning database products to SinoCom for sale across Asia as well as integration into SinoCom’s branded end-user applications.

PointBase database products include PointBase Embedded, PointBase Micro and the company’s exclusive PointBase UniSync technology, which together form a product suite providing relational SQL database and data synchronization capabilities on any Java-enabled platform. PointBase designs its product family primarily for ISVs and moderate to large-scale software development shops creating standard and mobile enterprise applications. Java-based cross-platform and mobile solutions underlie many enterprise software systems in today’s fast-moving corporate environments. PointBase products are optimized for embeddable Java-based management of metadata, application-specific and interim data storage, out-of-the-box tutorials and demonstration materials, and other forms of dynamic relational data.

“Companies around the world trust us to provide the highest quality of IT systems and solutions to help them stay competitive in the fast-changing global markets where they operate,” said Wang Xubing, president of SinoCom. “PointBase products not only have the power to keep data-hungry global companies responsive through any Java-enabled platform, they allow mobile workers to maintain up-to-date data, wherever they may be from one day to the next. The four-month PointBase upgrade schedule is extremely responsive to changing markets, and we are eager to make the robust PointBase product family available to our customers, as they create their own mobility solutions.”

“This relationship with SinoCom is an important milestone as we extend our reach beyond Europe and Japan to the great mainland markets of Asia,” said Bruce Scott, PointBase president and CEO. “SinoCom has enjoyed consistent growth among global Fortune 500 companies and has a strong presence in Japan as well, through its relationship with NEC. China is one of the largest PC, Internet IT and enterprise mobility markets and we look forward to participating in new initiatives as they continue to build support for the increasingly mobile Chinese workforce. SinoCom is the ideal partner for us in these major global markets.”

PointBase established its first channel partner in early 2000, when it signed OGIS-RI, Japan as its first international reseller. This was followed in July 2000 with the addition of two European distributors -- HWF Software Vertriebs-GmbH, Cologne, Germany and PlanetWide.Data Ltd, London, U.K. Both companies are leading developers and systems integrators of object and Internet technologies; both companies develop networks of PointBase resellers, and both also offer direct sales and support. In 2003, PointBase announced its partnership with NEC Soft, a member of the NEC Group, providing comprehensive software solutions and expert professional services to customers in Japan and elsewhere. Today, PointBase reaches out to China and all of Asia with its all-Java, award-winning data management solutions.
