Crisis Consulting unveils the first GPS-tracking software integrated to a PDA.

As firms globalize, business environment is getting more and more hostile and complex. To bring an answer to the rise of international risks, from the most serious (kidnappings, rackets, terrorist attacks) to the most widespread (sanitary problems or strikes), Crisis Consulting launches the Crisis GPS Locator ©, the first integrated GPS-tracking software. Thanks to the Locator, managers know at any time where are precisely their mobile workmates, who can in return transmit instantaneously their GPS position in case of a significant event, as well a risk assessment for the zone and a short message.

The Locator in four words: reactivity, savings, efficiency and safety

1 – A reactive tool: thanks to real-time localization, you can provide your workmates a targeted and efficient help in case of an emergency.
2 – A cost-efficient and user-friendly tool: the Locator works on a Pocket PC and its ergonomics enables an immediate use. There are no extra fees for training or equipment.
3 – An efficient tool: your co-workers can now focus fully on their professional objectives.
4 – A secure tool: you guarantee the security of your information by hosting the Crisis Profiler platform, and you are the only one to have access to stored data. (Source: Press Release)

New Wireless Software Saves Mobile Workers Thousands of Dollars Worth of Time and Gas Wasted Traveling To and From the Field

Wireless Software, Called mEnable 2.0, Removes Docking, Cradles Used by Pocket PCs to Sync Information Via Cell Phones’ Data Transfer Capability, the Internet or Wireless Networks

SYWARE, Inc. announced it has solved a major obstacle faced by millions of frustrated Pocket PC database users who dock their PDAs in cradles to automatically exchange or "sync" information between the enterprise and the field. Until now, hundreds of thousands of people were forced to needlessly commute to and from the field and use other inefficient means to sync information. SYWARE’s software, called mEnable 2.0, solves this problem by eliminating the need for "tethered sync" and enables mobile users to wirelessly sync information without having to dock or place Pocket PCs in cradles. mEnable 2.0 provides workers in the field with wireless access to enterprise data, the ability to run database applications on handhelds and connect to ODBC-enabled databases in real-time or offline, at any time or place.

"With oil prices hovering at just above $61 dollars a barrel- companies and individuals feel the severe pain and cost at the gas pump," said Sy Danberg, President, SYWARE, Inc. "mEnable obviates the need to needlessly commute to and from the field to sync critical information. As a result, this helps companies and individuals mitigate the costs associated with fuel consumption and wasted commuting time while dropping money to their bottom line," said Danberg.

The company’s software has an install base of over 100,000 customers in all industries. Customers range in size from Fed-Ex (NYSE: FDX), Tyco Fire & Building Products (NYSE: TYC), and Cendant Car Rental Group (NYSE: CD) to individual and small-to-medium size business users. mEnable complements the company's Visual CE 9 software product line that empowers people to rapidly create feature-rich database applications, without programming, that can be deployed on any Windows Mobile device wherever they need to work.

This news follows a previous announcement that an international panel of industry experts, sponsored by Microsoft Germany and Pocket PC Magazine Germany, presented SYWARE with a "Best Database Software Award 2004." "mEnable provides a valuable tool for meeting the needs of the increasingly mobile work force," Rogers Weed, General Manager of the Mobile Devices Division at Microsoft Corp. (NASDAQ: MSFT) added. mEnable allows any application written in C++, Visual Basic or Visual CE to wirelessly read from or write to any ODBC-enabled data source, such as SQLServer, Oracle, Microsoft Access, and Sybase.

mEnable Occasionally Connected: Be productive 24 x 7 -- even when the network isn’t.

For those who cannot rely on a continuous connection to server data, SYWARE offers mEnable Occasionally Connected and Visual CE. When the network is available, users read from and write to the enterprise server. When coverage is lost, they work locally. When coverage is restored, the local and server databases are synchronized and users resume working against the server.

mEnable Always Connected:

Some users need continuous access to server data to interact and work with large, complex databases that can be cumbersome on their handhelds. If users need to have access to a large amount of information on handhelds, it’s not always possible to store all the data locally. mEnable’s always-connected interface to corporate servers enables users to get real-time access to large amounts of centralized data and maintain a competitive edge, have immediate access to answers in the field, deliver a superior customer experience or streamline work processes.
