OnTapTM for the Palm Computing® Platform
Selected by Computer Reseller News at PC Expo 1998

OnTap technology and the Palm Computing platform - an innovative communication solution for businesses and publishers using Macintosh, Windows, DOS, Unix, mini and mainframe computers

CRN Recommended Logo

PITTSBURGH, Pa., August 5, 1998 - OnTap technology for the Palm Computing Platform from Aegean Associates, Inc., an embedded systems and custom software provider since 1990, was selected and reviewed as a "can't live without application for resellers" by Computer Reseller News live at PC Expo in New York City.

Computer Reseller News' Test Center reviewed OnTap with the new Palm III (TM) connected organizer and found it to work seamlessly with Palm Computing's new Palm OS (TM) . Recommended by CRN as an "innovative product", OnTap provides free, internet and e-mail access to its Public OnTap Technology Server, enabling publishers and businesses using any computing platform, to easily create custom, interactive pocket reference guides for 3Com(R) connected organizers and the IBM(R) WorkPad(R) PC Companion. OnTap technology and the Palm OS form a powerful communication tool for business.

OnTap's simplicity, aggressive reseller pricing, and effortless content creation methods allows publishers to incorporate a handheld component into their product line with absolutely no development and no additional user support. In a corporate environment, OnTap bridges the gap between corporate IS and mobile professionals in the field by making it easy to use existing systems to create and deploy custom, interactive documents using bold, underlining fonts, and HTML links for navigation. Publishers use their existing tools - most mainframe programs, word processors, spreadsheets, and database, and desktop programs can save documents in text or HTML format. OnTap technology is an ideal component for publishers or as part of a larger corporate information system for translating and disseminating key information to a selected audience.

"Corporate IS professionals like the OnTap client server approach because there is nothing new to install on the desktop. This eliminates the installation, configuration, and support burdens associated with deploying desktop applications. If security is an issue, our embedded developer libraries make it easily to snap OnTap technology into in house systems, or, a private OnTap server can be installed on site," said Demitrios Vassaras, President of Aegean Associates, Inc.

OnTap benefits corporate users by providing a simple and cost-effective way to deliver and access corporate information in a format that is easy to navigate and easy to use. Custom content applications are created in hours, not days. With OnTap, the PalmPilot organizer becomes a portable pocket reference device for custom data - price lists, product catalogs, parts lists, corporate policies, reference materials, show guides, and schedules.

The OnTap Reader software for the Palm OS is available for $39.95 per copy, or on a site license basis at $2995 per 100 copies. The public translation service is free of charge, and a private, on site OnTap Server is available starting at $3995. Customers can purchase OnTap from the OnTap web site at www.ontaptech.com, and from resellers such as New World Technologies www.nwt.com, Palmtop Publishing www.palmtoppublishing.com, DOML International www.doml.com.sg and Mobilesoft www.mobilesoft.com.
