Synchrologic’s ReadySyncGo! to Provide Free Synchronization Service to Business Professionals and Travelers

ATLANTA (September 11, 2000) – Synchrologic, the leader in synchronizing Business Data Anywhere, announced today ReadySyncGo!, a free personalized synchronization service powered by the company's new ReadySyncGo! Enterprise product. ReadySyncGo! highlights the company’s leadership position in providing the essential synchronization platform required by enterprises for managing mobile devices and enabling anywhere access to vital business data and applications. This groundbreaking Web-based service is uniquely targeted to the specific needs of business professionals and travelers. The free service will be available in Q4 2000 with the enterprise edition released by the end of the year.

The ReadySyncGo! synchronization service keeps basic day-to-day information in sync between a user’s handheld PDA, wireless web phone, and home or office PC or laptop.  Calendar, address book, itinerary, to-do list, and other data is synchronized effortlessly between devices.  The same data is also available from any internet-connected PC via a web-based application.

Data synchronization is fundamental to virtually all mobile computing form factors,” said Jim Forbes, Executive Editor and Producer of DemoMobile.   “Synchrologic's ReadySyncGo! free Web service is the model we think will win in this space.  We've also been impressed by this company's track record in mobile computing and its outstanding management team."

ReadySyncGo! acts as a personal assistant -- providing valuable information based on travel and appointments. For example, based on a calendar entry, ReadySyncGo! will automatically generate driving directions from the airport to your appointment.  The full itinerary for the trip, including hotel, air, and car reservations with confirmation numbers will be synchronized and available on any device at any time, along with the current weather and forecast. Personalized alerts, such as flight delays and meeting reminders, are also pushed to select devices.

"ReadySyncGo! serves as a public showcase of our ReadySyncGo! Enterprise product which is designed for companies to use for internal deployment behind the company’s firewall," explains Bill Jones, Vice President of Product Management and Marketing for Synchrologic.  "ReadySyncGo! complements our iMobile Suite mobile and wireless infrastructure product, providing a compelling foundation for corporations’ mobile computing strategies.  ReadySyncGo! is also ideal for organizations such as wireless communications providers looking to enhance their customers' experience with value-added services."

ReadySyncGo! Enterprise offers rapid deployment and a quick return for organizations taking steps to make mobile users more productive, while leveraging their investment in mobile technologies.  ReadySyncGo! complements Synchrologic's iMobile Suite, which provides a comprehensive infrastructure platform for deploying enterprise applications to mobile and wireless devices.

“Synchrologic is delivering the essential elements for a corporation’s mobile computing strategy, and ReadySyncGo! provides a very compelling way for a corporation to get started delivering real value to its business professionals using mobile technologies,” explained J. Gerry Purdy, Ph.D., President & CEO of Mobile Insights, a leading market research firm in Mt. View, CA. “ReadySyncGo! is the type of service that enterprise IT professionals will find useful.”

In its initial release, ReadySyncGo! will synchronize PIM information between Microsoft Outlook on multiple Windows-based PCs and laptops, and also with Palm OS handhelds including the Palm VII or Handspring Visor.  The web-based application will work with Microsoft Explorer and Netscape Navigator to provide anywhere access to data via the Internet. ReadySyncGo! features full wireless phone support including the ability to instantly access your full contact list and calendar from any wireless web phone using Wireless Application Protocol (WAP).  Finally, wireless phones and pagers will benefit from personalized alerts and messaging capabilities based on the Short Message Service (SMS).

To add the personalized content based on the user schedule, Synchrologic has partnered with MapQuest, a wholly-owned subsidiary of AOL, for driving directions and maps and with Accuweather for weather information.  To streamline coordination of travel planning, Synchrologic has partnered with Worldspan, one of the world's leaders in providing global electronic distribution of travel information, Internet products and connectivity to travel agencies and corporations.

ReadySyncGo! (www.readysyncgo.com) will be available in Q4 2000 as a free service to business professionals and travelers. ReadySyncGo! Enterprise will be available from Synchrologic by the end of the year.
