Thacker Network Technologies Inc. Assumes Global Sales, Support, and Development of Satellite Forms MobileApp Designer V6
LACOMBE, Canada (Jan 31, 2005) - Thacker Network Technologies Inc. today announced that it has licensed Satellite Forms MobileApp Designer V6 software from Intellisync Corp. Effective immediately, Thacker is handling global sales, support, and development of the popular rapid application development (RAD) tool for PalmOS and PocketPC 2002/2003 handheld devices.
Satellite Forms enables rapid development of sophisticated handheld applications that integrate seamlessly with desktop database applications, or directly with server-based data via Intellisync's Data Sync technology (available separately). The software's built-in "App Designer" enables users to quickly create applications without any knowledge of programming, by simply "dragging and dropping" Satellite Forms controls. Satellite Forms offers a robust feature set, including color support, tools for creating custom menus and broad support for the most popular devices based on the Palm OS and Pocket PC 2002/2003 platforms. In addition, the base Satellite Forms feature set can be expanded through more than a dozen included "extensions", and more than 50 commercially available extensions.
Satellite Forms is an ideal tool for businesses and enterprises looking to build custom mobile applications, or to transform processes typically performed on paper to an electronic format for improved productivity and efficiency.
"We are extremely pleased to announce this license agreement with Intellisync," said David Thacker, president and CEO.
