May 1, 2001 - Pumatech Introduces Mind-it Software Version 4.3

  • Professionals to Experience Increased Productivity and Security

  • New Windows NT Support to Drive Widespread Adoption of Pumatech's Mind-it Technology, a Key MAP Offering

SAN JOSE, Calif., May 1 /PRNewswire/ -- Pumatech (Nasdaq: PUMA), the leading provider of software infrastructure for the mobile Internet, today announced version 4.3 of its Mind-it(TM) software, providing Windows NT support, priority change detection, advanced keyword minding, and password encryption features. This new version of Mind-it not only provides professionals with the ability to receive the information they need in a more time-efficient and secure manner, but it will now be made available to an
increased number of corporations through its enhanced platform support. Mind-it software integrates seamlessly with any Web site or electronic commerce, publishing, or CRM system, and proactively alerts users via email or mobile devices when content changes. Mind-it gives business users an effective tool for efficiently managing highly relevant information on an hour-to-hour basis.

Mind-it version 4.3 includes an enhanced feature set that extends the product's usability in enterprise environments:

  • Priority Change Detection: This new Mind-it component enables administrators to give priority to designated sets of URLs, greatly improving the timeliness of alert delivery to end users.

  • Advanced Keyword Minding: Users are able to track changes using multiple keywords instead of a single word. Multiple words are joined by logical expressions, such as "and" "or," etc., to increase the relevance of alerts.

  • Encrypted Passwords: Mind-it encrypts user passwords during the log-in process as well as in the product's user database.

  • Windows NT Support: In addition to supporting the enterprise-class Solaris platform and Oracle databases, Mind-it 4.3 is now available for Windows NT with a proprietary Pumatech database.

"With our Mind-It technology, we have empowered users to be notified of changes to essential information residing on corporate intranets or the Internet," said Brad Rowe, president and CEO of Pumatech. "We recognize that time and productivity are two of the most critical assets to corporations, and therefore we are delivering increased timeliness of alerts, usability, and security to the corporate environment with this new version of Mind-it. Furthermore, the demand for our Mind-it technology has driven us to provide Windows NT support in this new version, enabling a broader range of organizations to leverage Mind-it for efficient dissemination of mission-critical information." Mind-it version 4.3 is part of the change-detection/notification component of Pumatech's Mobile Application Platform (MAP), the common server platform on which the Company is building its new mobile solutions. Mind-it version 4.3 is now available via Pumatech's corporate licensing or ASP purchase options. For more information, visit
