Intermec MCL Partnership to Offer Rapid Application Development

READING, UK, 30 April, 2003 - Intermec International today announced a worldwide strategic partnership with MCL Technologies, a leading rapid application development and communication software tools developer. As part of the partnership, MCL' s leading-edge MCL-Collection Software Suite, will be available directly from Intermec. MCL-Collection provides integrated development support for Intermec's 700 Series Color mobile computers and in the future will be available for additional Intermec mobile computers and terminals.

MCL-Collection is a set of software development tools that allow programmers and non-programmers to quickly and easily design, deploy and run data collection applications for in-premise and mobile environments on Intermec 700 Series Color mobile computers. Support for an array of additional Intermec mobile computers is scheduled to be added in the future.

"MCL Technologies has created some of the industry's most powerful rapid application development tools," said Stuart Scott, Intermec’s Director of Business Development and Marketing. "The partnership between Intermec and MCL means that existing users of the MCL Collection with other devices can now port it directly to Intermec’s Color 700 mobile computers and quickly take full advantage of the Color 700’s class-leading features and performance."

The Intermec 700 Series Color is a powerful, reliable and easy-to-use handheld computer that can take the abuse of industrial, mobile and retail environments. It features a large, brilliant colour display, combined with the power and speed of Intel’s 400 MHz X-Scale processor for optimum flexibility and functionality.

The new 700 Color is the first enterprise Pocket PC to offer an imager, suitable for reading barcodes (including 2D symbologies), taking photographs and capturing signatures. The 700 Color is also first to integrate up to three wireless communication options in a single device, including a wireless local area (802.11b) radio, a GSM/GPRS wide area network radio and a fully integrated power-managed Bluetooth™ radio. Exceptionally rugged, the 700 Color has been engineered to withstand repeated 5-foot drops onto concrete.

MCL-Collection, which includes MCL-Designer, MCL-Net, MCL-Link and MCL-Bridges, is available now directly from Intermec.
