OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 21, 2006) - Impatica Inc., an industry leader in the delivery and viewing of PowerPoint presentations over the Internet and wireless networks, today announced it has entered into a channel partnership with Simply Wireless, a leading national provider of wireless technology for consumers and businesses. Under the terms of the agreement, Simply Wireless will offer its clients Impatica's comprehensive solution for PowerPoint viewing and projecting on BlackBerry handhelds. With the pocket-sized Impatica ShowMate, the BlackBerry can connect to any projector or display to present compelling PowerPoint presentations that include rich text, images, charts, graphs, animations and slide transition effects.

"We are delighted to welcome Simply Wireless to our global family of channel partners." said Michael Doyle, Chairman and CEO of Impatica Inc. "Simply Wireless has a very strong presence in the mobile communications market, through a combination of direct sales force, retail outlets and online stores."

RIM's BlackBerry is unquestionably a powerful productivity tool but, until now, mobile professionals still had to carry their laptop in order to make presentations. With ShowMate, the BlackBerry delivers an even higher level of productivity and utility.

"Impatica ShowMate is precisely the kind of added-value product we have been looking for," said Frederick Cobb, Director of Business Solutions for Simply Wireless. "For customers, the value goes far beyond eliminating the need to lug an expensive laptop around. The presenter now has the ability to move freely around the room with complete control over the presentation. The ability to view speakers' notes extracted from the PowerPoint clearly make the BlackBerry and ShowMate combination the best presentation tool on the market."

To use ShowMate, PowerPoint presentations can be transferred to the BlackBerry directly from the user's desktop computer, downloaded from a web site or received over-the-air as an e-mail attachment. Once on location and ready to present, they simply connect the ShowMate to the projector or large screen display and use Bluetooth to start and control the presentation from their BlackBerry.
