(MSI) is a developer of wireless business-to-business (B2B) software solutions. Our goal is to provide market-proven application servers, visual tools and application frameworks to form a complete software infrastructure for bringing business to the wireless world quickly, easily and cost-effectively. Our initial product, the WorkAway Suite, enables mobile workers of medium and large corporations to access mission-critical data in real-time using wireless handheld devices. The product will enable companies to achieve tremendous cost-savings and productivity benefits, because mobile workers don’t have to be connected to the Internet to use our software, and the one-time electronic input of order information at customer sites will eliminate many hours of data entry and attendant errors. This will free sales reps from time-consuming administrative tasks and allow them to spend time generating new business. Our strategy is to incorporate our proprietary set of software engines – the Dynamic Messaging and Synchronization Engine (WorkAway Sync™) and Dynamic Wireless GUI Engine (WorkAway GUI™) – into our second product, the WorkAway Builder toolkit, which will be available in Q4 2001. We anticipate that our wireless technology will become the development platform of choice for the legions of independent software developers creating wireless applications for every vertical industry and niche market. Highlights: · Actively working with Motorola Ventures to explore relationships with partner companies and Motorola corporate teams such as PNG and iDEN. ·Delivering the initial release of the WorkAway Suite in Q1 of 2001. ·Delivering the initial release of the WorkAway Builder toolkit in Q4 2001. ·Outstanding sales-driven software company. ·Poised to deliver the world’s first wireless application for multiple handheld devices that fully functions in connect or disconnect mode, enabling mobile workers to access and exchange mission-critical data in corporate back-office systems. ·Board of Advisors includes Dan O’Sullivan (VP of Bus Dev for QuickBuy), Fran Maycock (VP of Operations, Omnibus) and Bob Sullivan (Sullivan, Weinstien & McQuay). ·Plan to close 3 beta accounts per quarter starting in Q1, 2001. Market The wireless communications industry is experiencing exponential growth, and will continue to do so for many years to come. GartnerGroup estimates that by 2003, more than 137 million business users worldwide will be involved in some form of remote work, and that budgets for mobile solutions are expected to increase to over 25% by 2001 – up from 3% of corporate IS budgets in 1996. And a recent report by Donaldson, Lufkin & Jenrette project sales of handheld devices (PDAs, SmartPhones, Palmtops, etc.) to reach over 65 million in 2005, a 486% increase from the projected sales of 2000, far outselling desktop and laptop computers during this period.
