Partnership will provide sales forces and field service employees with new level of productivity and convenience

Sterling, VA, and Columbia, MD, May 9, 2001 – Categoric Software, a first mover in alerting infrastructure technology for the multichannel enterprise, and Unwired Express, Inc., the creator of the first context-aware enterprise mobility platform, today announced a partnership to allow mobile employees to significantly improve business productivity by delivering context-sensitive notifications to PDAs, smart phones and other mobile devices.

Under the collaborative partnership, Unwired Express will integrate Categoric’s Xalerts 5.0™ product into the notification subsystem of its advanced enterprise mobility platform to provide users with relevant, actionable information and immediate access to key business conditions. Now a pure Java application, Xalerts opens up new opportunities for event-management implementations in mission-critical environments. The Unwired Express product suite, scheduled for release in June, will target corporations looking to enhance the effectiveness of their mobile workforce.
Categoric’s technology incorporates complex business logic to identify critical exceptions, problems and opportunities across the enterprise and send personalized, interactive alerts to employees, customers and partners via any channel. These alerts will be enhanced through Unwired Express’s technology, which leverages the knowledge of a user’s location, presence and activity, and associated enterprise application information to provide faster access to relevant applications and services while significantly reducing manual data entry and opportunity for error. This results in higher employee productivity as well as increased revenue and decreased operating costs for the corporation.

"Time-sensitive information that is relevant to the task at hand is a cornerstone of effective enterprise mobility," said Yuval Boger, president and CEO of Unwired Express. "We chose Categoric as a partner because of its superior enterprise alerting platform that will allow us to help corporations obtain a significant return on their wireless investments and provide a new level of productivity and convenience to their mobile worker."

"By combining Categoric’s personalization and interactive features with Unwired Express’s superior mobility platform, we’ve created a supercharged product that fast-forwards business processes and equips mobile employees with an incredibly flexible and practical tool," said Thorgeir Einarsson, CEO of Categoric Software. "And because our technology is Java-based, more enterprises will be able to take advantage of this tool."
