SYMBOL TECHNOLOGIES OFFERS BAR CODE-BASED SOLUTIONS FOR COMPUTER ASSOCIATES PRMS USERS

 BOHEMIA, N.Y., Sept. 27 /PRNewswire/ -- Symbol Technologies, Inc. (NYSE: SBL), and Computer Associates (NYSE: CA) today announced that the Symbol family of bar code, radio frequency, data collection and communications products will support CA-PRMS, a comprehensive, AS/400-based enterprise-wide manufacturing system.
 With the integration of Symbol and CA technology, clients can input accurate data from anywhere in the manufacturing facility and seamlessly integrate bar code data capture systems with decision support tools, such as the Symbol Data Manager 800 fixed terminal series, without upgrading or changing their installed system. In addition, Symbol's SymbolVision software provides clients with a Windows-based interface to the joint solution, facilitating data tracking and analysis.
 Symbol's Spectrum One(R) network products, incorporating spread spectrum radio frequency, will also support CA-PRMS. Information is captured at the point of transaction and transmitted over the Spectrum One network as it occurs.
 Symbol and Computer Associates will offer Symbol products to CA-PRMS clients through their direct sales force, system integrators and value-added resellers.
