PeopleNet Communications Introduces Integration to Palm OS Handhelds

Solution Provides Portable Messaging and Data Collection

PeopleNet Communications(R), a mobile communications and fleet management solutions provider has expanded its Intouch(TM) Fleet Management system to be compatible with products that operate on the Palm OS(R) platform. This development provides access to the Intouch system through a variety of handheld devices, allowing fleet managers and drivers increased mobility and job efficiency.

"Integrating our current fleet management solution to the Palm OS allows PeopleNet customers more options," says PeopleNet CEO John Sarto. "Now fleet owners can incorporate the convenience of a handheld with the functionality and reliability of the Intouch system."

The Intouch Fleet Management system connects a fleet's entire supply chain with mobile location, messaging and voice communications. PeopleNet offers the following handheld options; Palm IIIxe, TRG PRO, Symbol 1500 and Symbol 1700. The handheld takes the place of the message display unit, an existing component of the Intouch system. When fleets choose the handheld option, they can access Intouch G2X(TM) features such as two-way form and freeform e-mail, personal and corporate address books and free driver e-mail, as well as handheld applications such as calendars, calculators, and other Palm OS applications.

By integrating the Intouch fleet management system with the Palm OS platform, PeopleNet makes future applications such as bar coding, signature capture, document exchange and electronic driver logs possible. What's more, the open platform allows PeopleNet's customers to develop their own Palm applications in the future.

"PeopleNet's integration with the Palm OS has allowed us to introduce a new mobile option to customers today as well as open the door for exciting future developments," says Dave Ladner, PeopleNet vice president of corporate business development.
