Servidyne Releases iTendant Express for Windows Mobile® 5.0 / 6.0
ATLANTA, April 3, 2008 /- SERVIDYNE, INC. (NASDAQ:SERV), a building performance expert services and real estate company, today announced the release of iTendant Express for Windows Mobile(R) 5.0 / 6.0. This new product significantly expands the functionality of the company's iTendant Express maintenance management system by including the additional option of affordable and easy-to-use Windows Mobile PDA devices.
The new version of iTendant Express is powered by Servidyne's proven iTendant technology, which tracks and manages maintenance activities and service requests for fast dispatch and easy remote management in commercial buildings and hotels. Servidyne's Windows Mobile software delivers full preventive computerized maintenance management system (CMMS) functionality, and it includes detailed progress tracking and completion tracking even in locations where the device has limited wireless coverage. iTendant Express for Windows Mobile, which works alongside the Company's existing iTendant Express for Blackberry(R), can eliminate a maintenance technician's need to carry multiple devices - an onboard bar code scanner and telephone are now integrated in a single hand-held device.
"Busy building engineers and maintenance technicians need a rugged device that packs several tools onto a single unit," said Andy Abrams, Executive Vice President of Servidyne. "iTendant Express for Windows Mobile meets that requirement plus it connects directly to Servidyne's servers without relying on email for work order delivery."
In order to deliver the maximum flexibility to meet Servidyne's customers' changing needs, the Windows Mobile device communicates over various common wireless protocols, such as Wi-Fi(R), Bluetooth(R) and cellular (Quad Band GSM/GPRS/EDGE). This wireless flexibility is designed into Servidyne's Windows Mobile handheld unit to allow customers to choose the communication format that best matches their needs. "For those customer applications not requiring wide area connectivity, Servidyne's new Windows Mobile devices will allow the elimination of monthly cellular carrier charges," Abrams said.
