Intranet Solutions Goes Wireless

IntraNet Solutions Inc. Monday took steps to embrace the growing wireless trend by supporting wireless platforms with its Xpedio intranet content management tool.

Xpedio now supports Handheld Device Markup Language (HDML), WAP and Wireless Markup Language (WML) standards, in addition to current XML, HTML, and PDF standards. With the support, content from desktops can be automatically converted and formatted for wireless handheld devices such as palm computers, cellular phones and pagers.

Xpedio is designed to enable customers to create templates that control the presentation of the content and automatically reformats and filters the information for delivery on handheld devices. Customers will be able to deliver information to their workforce in the field such as customer data and pricing schedules.

"Up until now, publishing content for standard browser and wireless device access meant developing and maintaining multiple versions of the content -- HTML, XML and WML," said Dan Ryan, vice president of marketing and business development at IntraNet Solutions (INRS).

"Xpedio enables users to automatically publish to these multiple Web formats from a single authoritative source. We are expanding Xpedio's reach -- from the browser out to any handheld wireless device."
