Sydney-based value-added reseller Freedom Technologies has taken advantage of the handheld computing craze to announce the availability of ASL-Connect, a software solution it claims connects palm computers back to the network.
Developed by British company Advanced Systems, ASL Connect is designed to allow communication between handheld computing devices and server-based information systems. Ashley Bloch, managing director of Freedom Technologies, is anticipating that ASL-Connect will "extend the enterprise by integrating handheld computers into corporate IT systems, providing enterprise-level connectivity, management, integration and development capabilities".
Centred on connectivity to Microsoft Exchange and Lotus Notes, ASL-Connect is a solution for 3Com's Palm Computing and Windows CE. Bloch hopes that this product will replace the need for companies using these devices to build their own communications tools to provide access to server-based systems and relational databases.
