Documents To Go gets upgraded


documents to go for BlackBerry

DataViz has released an update to their popular Documents To Go line of applications. Version 1.005 is available for both the standard (read: free) and premium (read: paid) editions of Documents To Go. Here’s a rundown of some new features in version 1.005:

    * Excel 2007 Support
    * Track Changes (view only)
    * Password Protection for Word and Excel (97-2004) [Premium only]
    * Inserting comments for Word and Excel [Premium only]

If you are a pre-existing Documents To Go user (or had the applications pre-installed on your OS 4.5 or higher BlackBerry), you can upgrade for free by selecting “Check for Updates” in the Menu while running Documents To Go.

After updating, OS 4.5 users will now find they have Sheets To Go, which had previously only come pre-loaded on OS 4.6 devices. DataViz is also currently running a promotion that will get you a free copy of PDF To Go if you upgrade from standard to premium.

Cortado Corporate Professional Server (audio)



This week we had the chance to talk with Cortado’s Henning Volkmer and Roger Guerrero about their recently-launched Corporate Server software for small and medium companies, branching to a lot of interesting topics, like the the continuing importance of printing documents (even in the digital age), dreams of leaving every laptop behind, the particular needs of SMBs and their partnership with DataViz. Take a listen to our interview with Cortado, also available on MP3.

Sneak peek at WICKSoft version 3.6


WICKSoftDoug and I met up with local Ottawa developer WICKSoft the other day to check out their mobile document access system, and were both duly impressed. If you don’t have the time to check out their flash demos, these guys offer a quick, secure, and easy-to-use document access program for a wide variety of server types. They also showed us the work they’re doing with some big-name partners, so you can expect some fine products plugging in to WICKSoft soon. Version 3.6 will be officially announced at WES (along with those new partnerships we can’t mention yet), featuring some pretty slick additions. We heard about their integration with Novell not too long ago, and it was cool to finally see it in action. It was impressive to see how quick and painless server-side installation went, as well as their full range of security features. Which isn’t to say that WICKSoft suffers on the user side of the equation: essentially, if you work at a company where mobile access to documents is a priority, WICKSoft is for you.

You can expect more coverage of WICKSoft from the ‘Cool at WES (which attendees can see for themselves at booth #731), with a review to follow shortly after. Until then, scope the new deets after the jump.

Check out a list of new features and some quick impressions for WICKSoft 3.6.

New version of Content Beamer now available from ThinPrint


Content BeamerWe hadn’t heard a peep from our good friends over at ThinPrint since WES, but it looks like the wait was worth it. Cortado, a division of ThinPrint, announced the release of Content Beamer 3.5, the latest update to their successful document management solution. Content Beamer 3.5 allows BlackBerry users to both access and store documents found on the corporate network, manage network directories, organize PowerPoint presentations, and fax and send documents to a printer.

“Mobile workers using a BlackBerry smartphone with Content Beamer don’t have to carry their laptop with them all the time,” says Nina Kroll, Business Development Manager of ThinPrint’s Mobile Solutions Unit. “Companies can achieve enormous savings through this deployment, as they only require a data tariff and can lower the costs usually incurred by virtual private networks, support, and insurance. Productivity also increases, through a reduction in back office activities.”
