New Flowfinity Software Achieves Geo-Compliance for Field Service Transactions

— January 10, 2008

Vancouver, BC, Canada -- Flowfinity Wireless Inc., a leading provider of adaptable applications and fully integrated solutions fo the wireless enterprise, today is announcing the release of Flowfinity Actions 5.1, an adaptable mobile workflow platform that is the first to offer a Geo-compliance solution out-of-the-box. Geo-compliance means improving accountability by adding GPS-location information to every transaction, so that you know exactly where your data is coming from. This approach is made possible by the built-in GPS capabilities of BlackBerry smartphones from Research In Motion (Nasdaq: RIMM; TSX:RIM) and by leveraging the Geo-reporting and visualization capabilities of Microsoft MapPoint.

Flowfinity Actions has a proven track record for providing solutions as diverse as work order management, project management, asset management, sales management, and compliance management. By leveraging GPS coordinates, this new version of Flowfinity Actions, enhances the reporting context of all these applications. Now, any time a task is performed records are both time stamped and location stamped. Also, new applications are possible with automated location stamping, such as recording the location of equipment and inventory at job sites. Similarly, it becomes possible to record the exact location where a sale is made, where an incident occurs or where service is delivered.

"I have seen the new Flowfinity Actions automatic GPS location stamping feature and am impressed with the strength of the data collection capability.  This function is critical to us for tracking the location of our field sales activities.  We believe that these features will aid us in our continued push to provide quality metrics and sales rep accountability for our regional sales management staff." Aaron Kullman, VP Operations, Sales Partnerships Inc."

Adding the GPS location dimension to data gathered from the field is now very easy with Actions 5.1. This gives organizations valuable information that will help them to keep track of where valuable assets are located, understand the geographic aspect of data that they collect, analyze sales patterns, and optimize deployment of mobile teams.

"We are a customer-driven company, and extending our Actions platform with GPS support was an obvious step" said Dmitry Mikhailov, CEO of Flowfinity Wireless. "We spent time with key customers to build a business case. The geo-compliance approach created the most value by causing financial gain or by creating a competitive advantage for our customers."
