TEKLYNX' IDEAM - Real-Time Mobile Data Collection - Anywhere
Easy-to-design, easy-to-use data collection system for Supply Chain, Warehouse Management and other applications...
MILWAUKEE - Nov. 6, 2007 - TEKLYNX® International, the world's leading developer of software products for the AIDC marketplace, today announced the availability of IDEAM(TM) version 6.0 application development software that enables users to quickly design, modify and deploy scalable data collection and mobile applications for Microsoft Windows PCs and Microsoft Windows CE/Mobile-compatible devices.
The IDEAM product set consists of both mobile device and server software that combines open database connectivity, wireless networking, custom ActiveX-based application development, and ERP host connectivity into a single, robust data collection environment. IDEAM applications run as native clients on mobile devices with the result that they perform much faster than Web-based and Java applications.
IDEAM is ideal for Supply Chain, Warehouse Management (WMS), Retail, Healthcare, Public Safety/Law Enforcement, Food and Beverage, Building/Construction and Education markets. Its mobile enterprise capabilities open new opportunities for innovative applications, such as sales force automation, with on-site order placement and invoicing. IDEAM field force automation applications can also improve profitability and increase first-call resolution for service companies.
Non-technical application design interface: IDEAM's built-in drag and drop application design wizards, sample templates and custom icons, along with the ability to change and update applications quickly and easily, remove complexity and facilitate rapid application development.
Independent yet connected mobile service: IDEAM allows mobile data collection devices to operate independently on or off the network and intelligently communicate with the server only when information is required.
Real-time data collection: IDEAM can immediately exchange data with the server and with related ERP databases to update/change inventory and show product movement. Using the IDEAM product's communications capabilities, which can operate over the Web, IDEAM can function as a worldwide extension of a host system.
Device independence: IDEAM works with any Microsoft Windows CE/Mobile device without modification and on standard wireless networks. It also supports thousands of printers through Bluetooth, WiFi and/or direct connections.
Support for Windows Mobile 6 devices: Applications powered by IDEAM now use the Microsoft .NET 2 Compact mobile framework and support the Windows Mobile 6 platform.
"With IDEAM, we've made it easy for our customers to create value-added business applications that can improve and accelerate decision-making and increase efficiency," commented Ken Robinson, IDEAM product marketing manager. "The mobility, accuracy and timeliness of the information can change the way companies do business."

In addition to data interfaces with leading ERP systems, IDEAM can also send commands and input directly to TEKLYNX SENTINEL(TM) S/5 Data Exchange server.
