Garderos Announces PrintMe As Preferred Wireless Printing Solution

Press release from the issuing company

FOSTER CITY, CA --March 17, 2003-- Garderos Software Innovations GmbH, a leading software provider for high-speed Internet access, has announced PrintMe Networks(TM) as its preferred wireless printing solution. Garderos, a Siemens spin-off, provides an innovative, easy solution for business travelers to access the Internet and corporate Intranets while away on business trips. PrintMe(TM), developed by Electronics For Imaging, enables users to print documents wirelessly from any Internet connected device (e.g., mobile phone, laptop or PDA) to any printer or fax machine, without the hassle of connecting to a printer with software, cables or complex setup. By integrating PrintMe's "Guest Printing" capability into a public hotspot equipped with Garderos software, business executives can comfortably print vital documents, Web content and email attachments remotely from their mobile devices. Emails and attachments can either be sent by email directly to a PrintMe-enabled printer, or uploaded using a Web browser onto the PrintMe Guest Printing home page. Within a corporate WLAN, visiting staff or clients can also print documents wirelessly without the technical or security problems associated with linking external equipment to a secure internal company network. "We are pleased to be working with EFI to offer PrintMe Networks," says Hans Christensen, Chief Executive Officer of Garderos. "In a dynamic market as ours it is essential to have a strong partner network to meet all customer requirements. With EFI we will extend this network further." "PrintMe solves one of the most vexing problems of mobile professionals -- printing while away from their desk," said Georg Hollenbach, Director of EFI's Germany office. "We are delighted that Garderos has chosen PrintMe as its preferred wireless printing solution and look forward to working with them to roll this out to their broadband customers."
