Recently Released Synchrologic Mobile Suite 5.4 Software Becomes Cornerstone Of Pumatech's Enterprise Synchronization Server Platform
Pumatech, Inc. (NASDAQ: PUMA), a leading provider of synchronization software and services, today announced the completion of the Company's acquisition of Synchrologic, Inc., a developer of mobile infrastructure solutions designed to create competitive advantage by increasing mobile worker productivity while decreasing the total cost of ownership of mobile devices. During the week of Jan. 5, 2004, Pumatech expects to announce revised financial guidance for its second and third fiscal quarters, based on the integration of Synchrologic into the Company's operations.
"We believe that the Synchrologic Mobile Suite platform gives Pumatech the opportunity to establish a formidable presence in the enterprise wireless server space – complementing the large footprint we've created in the desktop synchronization arena with our award-winning Intellisync® software family. We're encouraged by the positive response we've already received from existing and prospective customers in the three months that we've been selling the Synchrologic Mobile Suite under the licensing agreement signed back in September. We now look forward to strengthening Pumatech's position as a leading provider of synchronization and mobile infrastructure software to the enterprise market." Synchrologic Mobile Suite software extends enterprise email and applications, automates the delivery of documents and Web sites, delivers relevant travel information for mobile professionals, and provides mobile systems management tools for laptops, handhelds and smart phones. Synchrologic's key revenue-generating customers and partners include 3M, Accenture, Citicorp, Domino's, J.D. Edwards, Nintendo, Microsoft, NEC, Pfizer, T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless. The latest release of Synchrologic Mobile Suite, version 5.4, raises the bar for mobile computing by offering broad device support to push enterprise information – including email, calendar and other PIM data, along with files and corporate application data – to mobile workers. While enabling "Always There" data on virtually any device over virtually any network, Synchrologic Mobile Suite also provides IT with robust tools to remotely manage and secure data and devices. Synchrologic Mobile Suite 5.4 offers Push MobileTM, a patent-pending technology that uses the IP-based network connectivity of WiFi, WAN or LAN networks to deliver "Always There" data across virtually all networks and device types. This new method of pushing mission-critical information to mobile workers allows business to be conducted anywhere, with confidence that all corporate data – from important email to files to application updates – will be automatically delivered to mobile workers when needed. Push Mobile is available for a broad array of wireless devices, including laptops and tablets as well as the newest handheld devices such as the Handspring Treo 600 (with 5-way navigation support), Windows Mobile 2003 for Pocket PC, and Symbian 7 devices like the Sony Ericsson P800 and P900. As a result of the completed merger, Synchrologic's Atlanta, Ga., headquarters will operate as the enterprise server division of Pumatech. The division will be headed by Senior Vice President of Enterprise Products and Services Said Mohammadioun, formerly the CEO and chairman of Synchrologic. "Our team, which constitutes the enterprise products and services division of the new Pumatech, is looking forward to leveraging Pumatech's extensive product portfolio and widespread customer reach to perpetuate our leadership role in delivering high-quality mobility solutions for enterprise clients," Mohammadioun explained. "In addition, we're committed to developing mobile and wireless technologies for all mobile constituents – and to building solutions that benefit not just Pumatech's customers and partners, but its employees and stockholders as well."
