iMobile Suite 4.2 Increases Mobile Worker Productivity
ATLANTA, April 10, 2002 - Enterprises get the highest productivity from mobile workers when they have the same access to information in the field as in the office. For over 6 years, SynchrologicTM has helped companies increase mobile worker productivity by providing the software to mobilize enterprise applications and manage devices.

Additionally, the product has been upgraded to help companies further cut the costs associated with implementing and supporting mobile applications through improved scalability and optimized performance for enterprise handheld applications.
iMobile Suite 4.2 offers key benefits to business users, IT staff and developers, including:

For the first time, developers can now connect the data from SQL Server, Oracle or DB2 databases to SQL Server CE using iMobile Suite 4.2.
- Support for applications developed using the Microsoft .NET Compact Framework offers developers an easy way to migrate existing or write new mobile applications without worrying about how to extend the enterprise data to Windows CE-based or Pocket PC devices.
