Intermec Selects AppForge for Independent Software Vendor Partner Program

5/12/2004 - Intermec Technologies Corp. announced that AppForge Inc. has been named as the inaugural member of its Independent Software Vendor (ISV) Partner program. The ISV program is designed to support and reward independent software vendors who create software applications and tools that extend the powerful computing, communications and data capture capabilities of Intermec devices.

AppForge's latest version of Crossfire, its mobile and wireless application development environment, allows programmers to use Microsoft Visual Basic 6.0 and Visual Studio .NET to create enterprise applications for Intermec 700 Series mobile computers. AppForge offers comprehensive database, synchronization, and wireless communications solutions and has seamlessly integrated Intermec bar code scanner support into Crossfire. Developers now can create and modify scanner parameters using a built-in Crossfire bar code control.

"Many companies already have IT staff that know and use Microsoft .NET and Visual Basic every day," said Rod Crane, Intermec vice president of channel partner sales. "With Crossfire, companies can quickly develop and deploy custom mobile applications for the 700 Series. Adding AppForge as an ISV partner assures customers that its software development tools have been tested to ensure interoperability with Intermec products."

"AppForge is very pleased to be named as an inaugural member of the Intermec ISV Program," said Gary Warren, AppForge chairman and chief executive officer. "As a leader in supply chain information solutions, Intermec provides our customers with compelling systems to answer automated data collection needs."
