Field Service Technicians Handle Mobile Printing Needs With Corrigo and Printek

WILSONVILLE, OR -- (MARKET WIRE) -- December 5, 2006 --Corrigo, the leading provider of on-demand service management solutions, and PrintekMobile Group, Printek Inc., the leading provider of high quality mobile printing, have teamed together to provide mobile service workers with in-the-field printing for work order verification and signature capture.

Mobile service technicians using Corrigo's wireless, web-based maintenance management software, PrintekMobile's mobile thermal series of printers, and a Bluetooth-enabled wireless phone, BlackBerry, or PocketPC are able to print out work orders while in the field. This capability allows signature verification for completed jobs while providing printed details of the job, including notes and costs.

In mobile environments, field service technicians and field managers often receive requests for hard copies of work orders and invoices. With Corrigo, these requests are easily fulfilled using PrintekMobile's rugged, durable mobile printers (MtP series/FieldPro series ) that can be mounted in a vehicle or hand-carried. The printer gives mobile workers high-speed printing with minimum use of battery life.

"Our customers want to be able to print invoices and work orders while controlling costs and simplifying ease of use in the field," said Richard Michaux, President of Corrigo. "We partnered with PrintekMobile because of their reputation for providing a wireless printer solution that performs in demanding, mobile environments and offers unparalleled service and support."

"PrintekMobile is committed to fulfilling the needs of field workers with products designed specifically for them. This shows in our product features and excellent customer support, but also in the key partnerships formed with leading vendors in this marketplace. Our rugged and reliable products, advanced features like enhanced Bluetooth security, and alliances with companies like Corrigo make PrintekMobile a natural choice," noted Russell Corace, Executive Vice President of Engineering, PrintekMobile.

"We seek the best-in-class companies to partner with and found that Corrigo's commitment to service matched ours. Both companies are focused on increasing field staff productivity, reducing costs and improving the customers' experience and satisfaction."

Corrigo's comprehensive work order and service management application runs on a variety of Bluetooth wireless device platforms, including BlackBerry, Java, and Windows Mobile, and with several cellular carriers, including Sprint Nextel, Cingular and Verizon.
