FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Intermec and Synchrologic Partner to Deliver Enterprise Data to Mobile Devices
EVERETT, Wash. and ATLANTA, Ga., Feb. 18, 2002 - Intermec Technologies Corp. has named Synchrologic Inc. to its Premier Solutions Partner program. Synchrologic's iMobile Suite will work with Intermec's mobile computers to provide automated software updates, mobile device management and mobile enterprise applications for customers in industries such as retail, utilities, transportation and logistics, where out-of-office connectivity is crucial.
Designed to enhance productivity of front-line workers and reduce the time and cost associated with managing mobile devices, iMobile Suite provides secure mobile and remote access to enterprise data. This gives companies the ability to link their mobile workers using Intermec devices to vital corporate data, streamlining the flow of information both to and from the field.
The iMobile Systems Management complements Intermec device deployments by allowing companies to configure, deploy and update application programs, monitor device performance and provide IT with visibility to the hardware and software inventory of each device. The ability to perform these functions remotely reduces user downtime and enhances productivity of field and factory floor workers, who may no longer need to return their computers to the office to receive software updates or obtain critical data.
"Partnerships have become integral in driving enterprise market momentum," said John Dancu, president and chief operating officer of Synchrologic. "Our goal is to forge partnerships with best-of-breed providers such as Intermec to provide end-to-end solutions to the market - from quality devices to award-winning software that enables those devices. Our alliance provides customers the powerful benefit of deploying mission-critical applications to Intermec devices and keeping those devices and applications in top working order."
"As mobile deployments expand in size and scope, tools that securely control devices and applications in the field become even more important," said Rod Crane, Intermec vice president of channel partner sales. "Synchrologic has clearly demonstrated its understanding of the challenges associated with mobile computing. The iMobile Suite allows us to deliver the information our customers need to be successful in deploying and managing a mobile computing infrastructure."
