Synactive Introduces GuiXT Mobile

FOSTER CITY, Calif. –(Business Wire)– Aug. 4, 2004 Synactive, the premier developer of customized E-Business solutions for SAP (NYSE:SAP), introduces the first SAPGUI “clone” for mobile devices and Pocket PCs. GuiXT Mobile provides a robust solution to organizations who want to take advantage of their growing dependency on mobile devices with their existing SAP infrastructure. With GuiXT Mobile, people in the field — sales, service, warehouse, and other mobile staff — can now use their hand-held devices to complete complex R/3 transactions.

“Building off the success of our GuiXT RF offering, GuiXT Mobile is certain to be a huge hit by allowing users access to SAP from the shop floor. What an exciting use of technology!” says Keith Limnell, Synactive’s Director of Software Development. In recent months, Steelscape Incorporated deployed GuiXT RF to help increase business and cost efficiencies across its SAP warehouse management operations, with access from almost anywhere. Similarly, GuiXT Mobile will allow an organization’s widespread workforce to access all SAP applications utilizing the latest mobile technology, with minimal or no additional development. As GuiXT RF is designed to integrate RF equipment (i.e. Mobile Data Entry) to R/3 via SAPConsole, GuiXT Mobile is designed to operate natively on Pocket PCs and Windows CE devices by use of Wi-Fi technology, allowing SAP dynpros (R/3 screens) to be displayed directly on mobile devices — enabling users to have a similar business process experience as if accessing R/3 from a desktop.

“Imagine a sales person on travel receiving an unexpected phone call from a client indicating an urgent need for 5000 switches,” explains Thomas Ewe, CEO, Synactive. “The sales person simply accesses the warehouse inventory log from his PDA device, places the order for immediate shipping, and submits the appropriate information for billing. All this is accomplished by having full access into the whole of R/3, without any custom code.”

GuiXT Mobile is a non-intrusive solution that extends what is available in R/3. Organizations will utilize the same proven technologies in standard R/3 and the native SAP protocol, with no additional layers of middleware, or ABAP programming. GuiXT Mobile streamlines the flow of real-time information between the field and the R/3 system, allowing organizations with mobile workforces to maximize the productivity of workers in the field, reduce cost, and boost customer satisfaction.

“GuiXT Mobile is a major development for the mobile business industry at large. It will provide a true level of flexibility to distributed users, streamlining the SAP automation process,” said Thomas. “We expect significant acceleration in adoption of this product.”

As a member of the SAP Complementary Software Program, the Synactive GuiXT software comes bundled with all SAPGUI installations — 4.6b and above.

Pre-Paid Service Simplifies WiFi Public Access

Trustive, the European based international Hotspot aggregator, today announced the availability of a new Pre-paid Public WIFI service for accessing its network of 12,254 Hotspots in 49 countries. The scheme is to attract new users to public WIFI by removing over-complex subscription and payment methods, and offering access to its extensive global network on a pay-as-you-go basis.

Until recently, the market for public access WLAN or WIFI roaming had failed to live up to its potential. However, the most recent indications out of the US market suggest that the market is finally gathering pace. With WIFI near ubiquitous in new notebook computers, the largest provider of US Hotspots recently announced a more than 100% growth in new subscriptions in the past 12 months. Trustive believes that by offering a simple alternative to the current complex payment methods and binding subscriptions, it will remove a significant deterrent for wary first-time users and invoke similar growth in the European and broader international PWLAN market.

The new Trustive service, available online now at http://www.trustive.com, gives users a choice of 200 or 400 pre-paid minutes across its global network, with a service voucher valid for 12 months after its first activation. Only paying for time consumed on a per second basis, the user starts and stops the service at any point. They can also check account information online in real-time, and buy new credit when needed.

“The introduction of pre-paid schemes in the mobile voice market had been the cue for the huge expansion in subscriber numbers as consumer customers like the ability to control costs. Service Providers can’t rely on a one-size-fits-all approach when it comes to payment,” comments Gavin Dresselhuis, Managing Director of Trustive. “Our new service offers the simplicity which the market has been missing. An easy 30 Euro payment gives the traveling professional access to email, the Internet and corporate VPNs from airport lounges, hotels and at least one location in most major cities around the globe.”

Trustive is Europe’s premier WIFI aggregator, offering high-speed access to a global network of Hotspots through a unified service which removes complexity for the roaming WiFi user by providing advanced access to all networks with the same familiar authentication method and billing procedure.

Trustive is an active contributor to the evolution of the Public WIFI market, to deliver simpler, seamless business connections at the Hotspots, with more than 50 aggregated Partner networks worldwide.

Just purchased and installed the Holux 236 BT GPS receiver

Hi all!!

I finally got around to purchasing the GPS unit. Delorme’s unit was on back-order till mid July, so I had to cancel my order and went to a different manufacturer.

I chose the Holux 236 unit, with the new SiRF III chipset. It’s an amazing receiver about the size of a pack of gum. Quick pairing and great signal fix shine with this unit. BT connectivity is wonderful as well. Pics and more info to come tonight after I get home from work. I’m running iGuidance iNavigator software, iPaq 5550, Sandisk 1GB Sd card for maps, and a Seido 25000 windshield mount. If you have any questions, feel free to ask!

I believe it should work with your iPaq 3715 as long as you have bluetooth. Where are you located? Try semsons.com they are actually 45 minutes away from me (here in California) and have international shipping.

Verizon VX6600 is in my hands!

I know I posted about this phone yesterday and today I received my brand new Verizon VX6600 PocketPC Phone. Today I setup my wireless sync email which is similar to the Blackberry email, but it is still pull email. Nevertheless Verizon did a great job implementing the wireless sync application. I am also one of those lucky consumers who is in EVDO coverage. If you aren’t familiar with EVDO…

EvDO provides wireless data connections that are 10 times as fast as a regular modem. Proponents say EvDO offers huge advantages over WiFi, another wireless data technology that is popping up around the country in hotel lobbies and coffee shops, and that it may even be the long sought path around local telephone and cable companies’ lock on the high-speed Internet market in most residential areas.

During my testing I was able to achieve speeds up to 750kbs!!! I was also lucky enough to find a way of connecting my PocketPC Phone to my laptop and surf at blazing speeds! Say goodbye to my $9.99 Starbuck Coffee broadband connections. You can tell by my experience this PocketPC is one of the best I have ever used. If you dont believe me check out an article at the Wall Street Journal..
