News Release Nexgen Now Shipping NexgenCommerce/Wireless for BPCS(R) New wireless product expands BPCS(R) web access and functionality beyond the desktop Naperville, IL-February 28, 2002. Nexgen Software Technologies, Inc. today announced availability of NexgenCommerce/Wireless(tm) which extends its flagship web storefront solution for BPCS users. For years, NexgenCommerce(tm) customers have enjoyed the benefits of scalable and secure web-based access to their BPCS software systems without costly and complex middleware. Now, Nexgen extends that reach to a large variety of wireless handheld devices including PDA's, web-phones, industrial terminals, and pocket email devices. With NexgenCommerce/Wireless, mobile sales teams and field service personnel can have direct and real-time access to BPCS while they are on the go. Mobile access is not limited to inquiry functions or lookups. NexgenCommerce provides full transaction support such as remote order entry, inventory allocation and the immediate revision of customer information. "Using NexgenCommerce/Wireless, practically any transaction you would ever want to make in BPCS can now be performed with the convenience of a handheld device and a wireless connection" says Dan Mitchell, Chief Technology Officer for Nexgen. Mitchell continues, "There is a lot of confusion in the wireless space among customers and vendors right now because of evolving standards and technologies. We believe that we have found a robust and powerful wireless approach that is going to come through the shakeout on top." NexgenCommerce/Wireless operates on any of a variety of nationwide public networks including CDPD, Datatac, OpenWave, Palm.net, Mobitex and iMode. The system can also be implemented on wireless LANs including 802.11a/b. "Being able to run on a wireless LAN allows us to extend NexgenCommerce into the plant," suggests Roger Jarman, NexgenCommerce Product Manager. "By combining lower-cost palm-based barcode readers with NexgenCommerce shop floor and inventory functionality we now have a flexible alternative to dedicated plant floor RF systems." NexgenCommerce/Wireless utilizes adaptive web rendering technology that automatically transforms the web-based, NexgenCommerce BPCS interfaces into a format suitable for hand-held sized screens. "The major difficulty with palm devices is data entry and screen size" says Rick Halsten, General Manager of Nexgen. "With NexgenCommerce/Wireless we have found a way to give the mobile customer a highly usable interface without having to reengineer our applications."
