DataViz Licenses Microsoft Exchange Server ActiveSync
Protocol to Integrate with RoadSync, a Software
Solution Providing Wireless Connectivity to Outlook
Data for Mobile Phones

MILFORD, Conn.--(CCNMatthews - Mar 30, 2005) -

RoadSync Will Allow End-Users with Existing Devices, IT Managers and
Licensees to Readily Take Advantage of the Mobile Benefits of Exchange
2003

DataViz, Inc., a leading provider of Office compatibility solutions for
over 21 years, announced today that it has licensed the Microsoft
Exchange Server ActiveSync protocol. DataViz intends to incorporate this
technology into RoadSync, a mobile ActiveSync client available both
commercially and to potential licensees. It will provide non-Microsoft
smartphones and other mobile devices with direct, over-the-air, secure
synchronization with corporate Outlook e-mail and personal information
management data, such as calendar and contacts. By integrating the
RoadSync client with ActiveSync, enterprise customers will have more
choices in the types of mobile devices they deploy and will be better
able to utilize their existing Exchange Server investment instead of
relying on costly middleware solutions. The first editions of RoadSync
to incorporate the ActiveSync protocol will be available in May 2005 for
the Symbian OS based UIQ platform, Palm OS, and select Java MIDP 2.0
devices, such as the Sony Ericsson P900 series, palmOne Treo and
Motorola RAZR respectively.

"Our goal is to enable our customers to achieve the next level of
mobility in their 'Office life' by providing full access to their
Outlook data, regardless of their chosen device or platform." said Dick
Fontana, president and CEO of DataViz, Inc. "With RoadSync for Symbian
UIQ, Palm OS and Java available in May, followed by phased
implementations for BREW and Nokia's Series 60 and Series 80 platforms
throughout this year, we will enable many to easily take their 'Office
life' wireless, sooner, rather than later."

"DataViz' speed to market will allow more customers to take advantage of
the benefits of Exchange Server ActiveSync using mobile devices and
smartphones currently on the market today," said Kim Akers, Senior
Marketing Director of the Exchange product group at Microsoft. "Through
this licensing agreement, more companies of all sizes will be able to
deploy direct wireless access to Exchange data, enhancing end-user
productivity, while lowering IT costs."

Announcements regarding the availability and pricing of RoadSync for
Symbian UIQ, Palm OS, Java, BREW and Series 60 and Series 80 platforms,
which are based on the Symbian OS, will be made throughout the remainder
of 2005. For more information, visit http://www.dataviz.com/roadsyncinfo.
