eSP's Stay-Linked to Be Offered by IQMS as Next Generation Solution for Wireless Access to Host ERP Systems

IQMS EnterpriseIQ Users Will Benefit From the Unique Functionality and Added Value Enabled by Stay-Linked's Thin Client Design

TUSTIN, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 1, 2006 -- eBusiness Solution Pros (eSP), a provider of wireless terminal software solutions, announced today a strategic partnership agreement with ERP software provider IQMS that will allow IQMS to offer eSP's Stay-Linked® -- as a Stay-Linked Certified Partner -- in conjunction with its comprehensive ERP applications.

IQMS's EnterpriseIQ is the manufacturing industry's leading single-source ERP software; it can handle all ERP needs without requiring expensive third-party interfaces and provides a real-time foundation for collaborative and eBusiness environments -- all within a single database. eSP's Stay-Linked, which supports a wide range of host system platforms and wireless terminal devices, provides session persistence and centralized management in a single thin client solution specifically designed for wireless terminal emulation applications.

"IQMS is proud to join forces with eSP to offer Stay-Linked technology alongside EnterpriseIQ," said Glenn Nowak, vice president of sales at IQMS. "EnterpriseIQ lets manufacturers gain real-time control and visibility to achieve leaner operations, support growth, and maintain data integrity. Stay-Linked complements this value by enhancing connectivity to EnterpriseIQ software and by supporting IQMS's world-class strategy to deliver quantifiable results to our customers."

Stay-Linked provides next-generation centralized, secure, high-performance wireless terminal access to 5250/3270, VT100/220 and SSHv2 host-based screen applications. Unlike the legacy, device-resident Telnet or SSHv2 products, all terminal emulation and client device/session control with Stay-Linked runs natively on the same host system as the Telnet or SSHv2 server. Only a thin client software component resides on each wireless terminal device.

Because the user's session does not run on the device itself, Stay-Linked allows centralized help-desk support staff to view, control and interact with host-based wireless terminal user sessions in real time, even if the user's device can no longer access the host system. When temporary disruptions in wireless device-to-host access occur, users are automatically returned to their original wireless session -- the exact same screen and cursor location -- as soon as access is restored.

"We're delighted that IQMS has joined the growing list of strategic resellers, device manufacturers and application providers now embracing Stay-Linked and the thin client design for the unique value it adds to their core offerings," said Mike Pagani, eSP's vice president of sales and marketing. "IQMS has a solid reputation for delivering quality, full-featured solutions to their ERP customers. We look forward to Stay-Linked contributing to IQMS's continued success as the solution of choice to provide next-generation functionality for their wireless terminal applications."

Examples of functionality unique to Stay-Linked include the ability to transfer control of a user's host-based screen session to a different device if the user's original device becomes disabled, as well as the ability to dynamically partner multiple wireless devices together (e.g., a forklift-mounted full-screen terminal with a handheld unit) to access and enter data into the same host-based screen session. Stay-Linked's thin client architecture and communication scheme has also proven to be highly compatible with VoIP push-to-talk applications running on the same device.
