Adapx Meets Federal Government Demand for Simple Digital Pen and Paper Software With the Opening of a New Office in Washington, DC

SEATTLE, WA--(Marketwire - January 30, 2008) - Adapx (, the company that is changing the economics of field data management, today announced the opening of its local office in the Washington, DC metropolitan area. The Adapx office is located at 11951 Freedom Drive, 13th Floor, Reston, Virginia 20190. The main number is 703-251-4637.

"To date, the ability to effectively collect and disseminate mission-critical field data has been a huge challenge for government agencies and companies. The Capturx product suite is the only viable solution to this problem and, as a result, we've seen a surge in demand from various agencies in the DC region," said Ken Schneider, president and CEO at Adapx. "Our new office allows us to leverage our experience in the Federal government and better accommodate the demand for our digital pen and paper software solutions across DoD, intelligence, and civilian sectors."

2008: Digital Pen and Paper Software Comes of Age

In Bill Gates' January 2008 speech at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), he predicted, "More natural modes of interacting with computers will finally prevail, including touch, natural language recognition, digital pens and other motion cues."

Based on a patent-pending digital pen and paper software platform, the Capturx product suite is preferred by users over rugged PCs and tablets. Capturx instantly converts handwritten field notes and sketches into digital data and is the only product on the market that seamlessly integrates with business-critical applications from Microsoft, ESRI, and Autodesk. Using Capturx, field teams no longer have to re-enter field data, and since data is shared more frequently and at a faster pace, companies benefit from a more effective use of time and resources as well as a significant return on investment.
