Psion TeklogixInnovation Management Group (IMG) Inks OEM Pact with Psion Teklogix

Onscreen Utilities Offer Perfect Complement to Vehicle Mount Computers

WOODLAND HILLS, Calif., July 31, 2001 – IMG, the leading supplier of onscreen keyboards, button and panel utilities for pen and touch based systems, announced today that it has signed an OEM license agreement with Psion Teklogix. Under terms of the agreement, IMG will offer its My-T-Soft programmable onscreen keyboard utilities with Psion’s 8500 vehicle mount computers.

My-T-Soft simplifies data entry by eliminating the need for an external keyboard. It can be integrated so that keyboards and panels only appear when needed and can be put away when not in use. On a secure network, the keyboard will automatically launch with the login window, so the operator can logon and off as needed. Keys and panels can be customized to control access and sized to permit accurate entry even with large gloved hands.

"IMG’s onscreen keyboard utility is an ideal complement to Psion’s 7500 and 8500 series computers, whether it be in warehousing, field service, utilities, sales, or routing," said Jerry Hussong, IMG’s vice president of sales. "With Psion’s strong presence in those markets, IMG benefits from the increased customer exposure and Psion’s excellent reputation."

The My-T-Soft (My-Typing-Pen, Soft or Touch Keyboard) product line offers more than 45 programmable U.S. and international 3D onscreen keyboards, with an unlimited number of programmable macro buttons and panels. The main focus of the product line is for use in pen and touch based systems as an alternative to physical keyboards and membrane panels. The latest release provides full support for Windows 95, 98, Me, NT, 2000 and XP platforms (with optional Citrix/MS terminal services support that runs on any thin client). Prior releases required different products or releases for different versions of Windows.

IMG’s products are written at the Windows kernel level, unlike an onscreen keyboard or panel developed in a database, browser, active-x, Java, or high-level tools such as Visual Basic. This allows IMG to offer complete control over all Windows functions and applications, including ctrl/alt/del, network logons and passwords. Security features include the ability to "hide" keys and lock panels, controlling the user input.

My-T-Pen, My-T-Soft, and My-T-Touch retail for $99.95. OEM, private label, and customized versions are available. Additional information and graphics are available at My-T-Soft Info.
