New licensing structure enables users to take full advantage of the thin
client's low total cost of ownership

Boundless Technologies, Inc., a leading provider of thin clients and a
wholly-owned subsidiary of Boundless Corporation, announced today that it
has simplified the licensing procedure for its Simple Administrator &
Manager (SAM) thin-client management software. Boundless customers will
be able to easily and inexpensively purchase a single site license for the
SAM software. The new site licensing structure furthers the low total cost
of ownership by eliminating the need for and costs associated with
purchasing incremental add-on user licenses as new thin clients are added.

"Boundless' unique SAM software maximises the benefits of the thin-client
concept, allowing administrators to manage, configure and perform upgrades
on our Capio & Capio II Windows-based Terminals (WBTs) from one central
location, thus reducing time consuming visits to administer individual
desktops," said Michael Oliva, Managing Director of Boundless
Inc. "Reducing the total cost of ownership is the theory behind server
centric computing; by moving to a simple and inexpensive site license
structure, we've not only made licensing a less complicated procedure, but
less costly for our customers. In addition, Boundless is now offering a
limited time rebate which makes the SAM software pricing even more
attractive, reducing the final cost to the customer to $25. Robust
administrative controls and low site license pricing set SAM apart from
other thin-client utility tools available and make it one of the best
management tools in the marketplace today." End users can obtain their

Boundless' SAM software provides administrators with full remote
capabilities including the ability to perform device diagnostics, schedule
automatic software updates, set BIOS parameters, change network settings,
and monitor and modify Capio II configurations. SAM can be used with
Microsoft NT 4.0 Server, Windows NT 4.0 Workstation, Windows NT Terminal
Server Edition, and Windows 2000 operating systems.

"Boundless' administrative management software was instrumental in our
decision to purchase their Capio II WBTs," said Joe Cron, Assistant Vice
President of Systems and Networks at CHD Meridian Healthcare, a leading
provider of employee-sponsored healthcare services. "This tool has allowed
our IT staff to make changes to firmware and configurations without
travelling to the end user location, saving us countless time and money."

Glenn Grossman, Director of Network Technology and Technical Support
Services at 2b Technologies, Inc., a software developer and ASP for
management services added, "While we don't need to worry frequently about
our Capio II thin clients, the SAM software saves valuable time when
troubleshooting problems. We use the software at larger ASP customer sites
to reduce support costs and end user frustration. The software allows us
service the thin clients to provide comprehensive support to our
We find the Capio II thin client very reliable and the support from
Boundless top notch. Using Boundless products has allowed us to deploy our
software effectively and without worry."
