Apr 17, 2001, 01:00 ET from vVault

    SAN FRANCISCO, April 17 /PRNewswire/ -- vVault, a leading provider of
 infrastructure technology for mobile productivity applications, today
 announced the release of vVault WorkGroups, an enhancement to their award
 winning vVault Platform product, that allows corporate IT managers to easily
 administer and flexibly manage group accounts within the mobile enterprise. As
 with vVault's core applications designed for mobile professionals, vVault
 WorkGroups is designed to support carriers and other distribution partners
 that target the mobile workforce.
     vVault's technology platform integrates with legacy communication and IT
 systems to enable end users to access, send, and collaborate on business
 critical documents through fax, email, the Web, and emerging wireless devices,
 including WAP phones and connected PDAs. With vVault, mobile professionals can
 view critical business files wirelessly (including email attachments) and
 print documents remotely via fax. The vVault Platform was recently named "Best
 Group Productivity Solution" and won "Best of Show" at Cellmania's annual
 WAPPYAwards, sponsored by Hewlett-Packard and AT&T Wireless.
     vVault WorkGroups enhances the vVault Platform with tools for service
 providers to sell into the enterprise market.
 
     Key features include:
 
     -- Ease of Administration: vVault WorkGroups allows corporate
        administrators to bulk load thousands of users and quickly add, edit,
        and remove user accounts over time.
 
     -- Detailed Reporting: Allows administrators to granularly track usage
        such as outbound faxes with detailed records of both documents and
        destinations. Enterprises can track on logon activity and other
        statistics. Carrier partners can track multiple customer accounts for
        billing purposes.
 
     -- User-Management Capabilities: Based on reporting functionality,
        administrators can make better decisions on how to allocate fax,
        storage, and other vVault capabilities. This flexible distribution
        method allows customers to capitalize on the resources purchased and
        ensure they are deployed to the best use.
 
     -- VAR Sales Tools:  Designed for distribution by communications
        companies, vVault WorkGroups includes sales features for
        account creation, mechanisms for the sale of more capacity, and
        reporting capabilities at the VAR level.
 
     vVault WorkGroups' administration functionality enhances existing
 communication and collaboration tools included in the vVault Platform, such as
 group file sharing, versioning, and permissioning.
 
     "vVault's Platform arms our customers with a compelling offering for both
 individual mobile professional subscribers and the companies employing them,"
 noted Bill Ho, founder and Chief Technology Officer at vVault. "With this
 release of vVault WorkGroups, vVault extends the reach of its product line to
 the mobile enterprise, an important step towards our mission to become the
 standard platform for mobile productivity."
     "A critical driver in the adoption and usage of mobile applications will
 be the ability for workers to get 'in the flow' of the business day -- even
 while working remotely," said Jennifer DiMarzio, industry analyst at Summit
 Strategies. "vVault's current functionality is aiming to address this very
 real need."
     The vVault WorkGroups edition is available for immediate license and
 distribution as an add-on module to the vVault Platform. The vVault Platform
 is currently distributed through vVault and its partners, including OmniSky,
 Handango, and other leading communications providers. For information about
