Applied Cellular Technology announces acquisition of "DataBoss" wireless database software product license.
Terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
According to Applied Cellular's chairman, Richard J. Sullivan, the acquisition adds important application development tools and connectivity with wireless network service providers to the mobile computing products currently offered by Applied Cellular.
Applied Cellular is a computer software developer and value-added reseller (VAR), specializing in radio frequency wireless data communications, mobile data collection and client server solutions for the wholesale distribution, manufacturing, health care and mobile work force industries.
As one of the first wireless-enabled database systems for Microsoft Windows, DataBoss Version 2.0 supports one- and two-way communications via a variety of network services.
In addition, Motorola's EMBARC wireless network division recently announced a joint marketing program for the promotion of the DataBoss software product, which will continue after the acquisition.
Users will be able to access EMBARC's nationwide wireless system to automatically broadcast changes in pricing, inventory and other data to field sales, merchandising and route personnel on a real-time basis between portable computer users and head office systems. With wireless capability, a home office can send updated information to hundreds, even thousands of users at once at a very reasonable cost.
"This acquisition is part of Applied Cellular Technology's continuing strategy to acquire products and licenses which will enhance and strengthen our current products and marketing base, expand relationships with major corporations and capture emerging, fully tested technologies with tremendous growth potential," Sullivan said.
The DataBoss and InstallBoss software product systems which were both acquired, had unaudited revenues in excess of $1 million in 1993 and $600,000 for the first six months of 1994.
