    VANCOUVER, April 11 /PRNewswire/ - Picture being able to access your
 personal Microsoft(R) Word, PowerPoint, Excel documents, email and email
 attachments from anywhere using any handheld or remote device. Now imagine
 viewing, editing or emailing that file to a customer. Veratium Software, Ltd.,
 today announced the launch of MOTIVUS, the first wireless software product to
 provide mobile business people with real-time, wireless access to their
 personal office computer and all its files and documents.
     "Our MOTIVUS family of products takes wireless to a new level by giving
 both wireless access and remote devices more practicality and greater
 usability. Until now, wireless technology offerings have been somewhat
 limited, restrictive or cost prohibitive. Veratium is finally giving today's
 mobile workforce anywhere, anytime access to what they want most - the
 critical files that reside back on their desktop computer or corporate
 network," said Phil Calvin, Veratium CEO and wireless expert. "MOTIVUS
 Wireless Desktop is like having your computer and network right there with you
 at all times."
     Along with MOTIVUS Wireless Desktop, Veratium also introduces MOTIVUS
 Wireless Inbox which connects the user in real-time to their office email.
 MOTIVUS Wireless Inbox allows the end-user to open, read or forward any email
 attachments. Email that is opened remotely will show as opened and read on the
 desktop system, eliminating any confusion about the status of the inbox.
     Pricing for MOTIVUS products are based on an annual subscription. MOTIVUS
 Wireless Desktop and MOTIVUS Wireless Inbox are available today from Veratium.
 Mobile users are encouraged to visit www.veratium.com for a demo and a 30-day
 trial.
     "We founded Veratium in response to the growing market need for wireless
 data interaction tools. In 2001, about 332 million units of Internet-enabled
 wireless devices will hit the market, surpassing PC shipments for the first
 time - by 2004 there will be more than 1.5 billion Internet-enabled wireless
 devices. The global market size for wireless data will be in excess of $33.5
 billion by 2004. This represents huge opportunity for wireless data
 interaction and Veratium is providing the applications," Calvin explains.
     Since MOTIVUS provides personal file access to any number of users
 through the mobile device of their choice, Information Technology Managers are
 able to centrally manage their mobile device platform and thereby minimize the
 total cost of ownership. MOTIVUS is designed to be flexible and scaleable. As
 it is a shrink-wrapped server product it can easily be deployed once,
 eliminating the need for expensive implementation and consulting costs.
     "Our server technology is mobile device and wireless transport agnostic,
 which means mobile users can pick the appropriate mobile device for their
 needs such as a Compaq iPAQ(TM), Palm(R) VII, RIM Blackberry(TM) or Smart
 Phone and wirelessly connect using any data transport provider such as
 AT&T(R), Bell Mobility(R) or Sprint PCS(R)," said Calvin.
