Multiplied Media Announces Availability of Poynt Application for BlackBerry Enterprise Server Users

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 18, 2010) - Multiplied Media Corporation (TSX VENTURE:MMC) (the "Company" or "Multiplied"), a leading provider of mobile local search services, today announced the availability of an enterprise build of their award-winning Poynt application. BlackBerry smartphone users on a BlackBerry Enterprise Server (BES) will have full access to the benefits and features of the Poynt application.

Poynt is a convenient and timesaving GPS-enabled application that connects users to local businesses, people, restaurants and movie theaters at the moment they want to find or acquire products or services. Poynt gives consumers the ability to move beyond discovery of their local area to view movie trailers and show times, book dining reservations, compare local gas prices, view directions on a map, click-to-call a business or view a website.

"Poynt is an effective tool in reducing business costs and enhancing workforce productivity through fewer directory assistance calls and the ability to quickly set up business lunches or find meeting locations," said Andrew Osis, CEO of Multiplied Media. "The new BES build allows BlackBerry enterprise administrators to easily manage distribution and updates of Poynt to their colleagues, connecting them with the local area to get quick search results, turn-by-turn directions and mapping, or detailed location information."

"Poynt is a very useful application and we are pleased to now be able to give our organization access to it," said Gavin Wilson, Senior Support Analyst at Oxford University Press. "We appreciate that Multiplied Media delivered a well-packaged BES build of the app that is easy to deliver to Oxford University Press' Blackberry users."

Multiplied Media has turned off update notifications in this enhanced enterprise build to ensure BES users do not need to download the app directly when an update becomes available. Poynt offers two versions of its Enterprise build to ensure BES users can fully utilize the application whether it's through a desktop manager or BES connection only.

Poynt is currently available for BlackBerry® smartphones in Canada, the United States, Germany, the United Kingdom, Italy, France and Spain through BlackBerry App World™ ( To register for Poynt BES visit for information.
