Extended Systems Delivers Mission-Critical Data Instantly to Devices

1/21/2004 - Extended Systems, (Nasdaq: XTND), a leading provider of mobile application solutions for the enterprise, announced that its OneBridge Mobile Solutions Platform now allows mobile device users to have live, instant access to business intelligence residing on corporate databases. Extended Systems is utilizing its unique IP-based push technology, which currently enables users to have instant access to e-mail, to push other mission critical data into the field. Mobile employees -- such as field service workers or sales representatives -- are now able to receive information from corporate databases wirelessly, with no user initiation required. Instant data delivery and real-time access to information in the field can enable companies to boost productivity, improve accuracy, speed response times and ultimately increase bottom-line profits.

The comprehensive OneBridge Mobile Solutions Platform now supports multiple methods for connecting mobile devices to corporate information. Customers have the option to choose browser-based, transactional, offline synchronization and now instant data delivery. IT departments implementing Web services, mobile portal applications, and mobile file and document management projects will be particularly interested in the instant data delivery option afforded by the OneBridge Mobile Solutions Platform.

"This completes the circle," said Charles Jepson, president and CEO of Extended Systems. "Different mobilization projects have different variables relative to devices, connectivity and database support. Our single platform offers the flexibility to adapt to the needs of any enterprise mobilization project."

The OneBridge Mobile Solutions Platform continues to build upon its operating system, device and connection agnostic approach to mobility with this latest release. OneBridge now supports several new devices including the Orange Smartphone SPV E200, the Handspring Treo 600 and the Sony Ericsson P900. On the groupware application end, OneBridge now supports Microsoft Exchange 2003. In addition, OneBridge is the only mobile e-mail product on the market to comprehensively support a Citrix Metaframe environment. The cross platform approach provided by the OneBridge Mobile Solutions Platform enables IT departments to support the latest mobile devices, operating systems and connectivity methods while leveraging existing infrastructure investments.

"We are excited about the new features available in OneBridge," said Greg Nelson, Senior Technology Consultant, Russell Investment Group. "E-mail is the first step to accessing data remotely. The next step, CRM data, is the big prize for us. As we formalize how we will enable our employees to access data remotely, we recognize that OneBridge offers the flexibility to handle our wireless data needs today and in the future."
