- Revolutionary Synchronization "For the Rest of Us" Powers Collaboration Between People Any Time, Anywhere -

BERKELEY, Calif. - WorldSync, Inc. announced the availability of SyncDeK® Single-user Engine 5.0 and SyncDeK Network Engine 5.0, powering bi-directional asynchronous data replication for FileMaker® databases that are persistently connected to the Internet or used offline.

Now for the first time, businesses and organizations can implement standalone technology that synchronizes data between FileMaker Pro, FileMaker Servers and runtime FileMaker applications. SyncDeK 5.0 is compatible with FileMaker 6 and FileMaker 7 databases on Mac OS X® and Windows® platforms. SyncDeK 5.0 Engine is introductory priced for immediate deployment (see pricing section below) and available directly from www.WorldSync.com.

"SyncDeK drives collaboration with powerful, trustworthy data replication," explained Jason Erickson, founder and CEO of WorldSync, Inc. "FileMaker solutions can now provide true enterprise-level data replication previously only possible through expensive scripted solutions. Now, anyone using FileMaker databases can collaborate with co-workers who are mobile or at remote locations, even if changes are made to the database offline. Our goal is to ignite a revolution of productivity for businesses, enterprise workgroups or any collaborative community."

SyncDeK 5.0 is a powerful application and plug-in combination that together provides the synchronization of specified fields between distributed FileMaker databases based on configurable rules, using commonly available Internet protocols. Designed for use by remote sites and mobile workers, often working offline, SyncDeK combines the power of Java-based background services with the flexibility of standard Internet communication protocols to synchronize XML data.

Highly configurable and scalable, data replication applies to individual data fields or entire FileMaker database files across client/client, client/server or server/server solutions. SyncDeK is configured, tested, deployed and maintained using the new SyncDeK Developer Kit (see related release).

SyncDeK's store and forward technology provides one-click data replication that efficiently gathers local changes to the database, packages these into compressed, encrypted shuttles and transports them over the Internet to intended community members. SyncDeK simultaneously gathers remote sync shuttles sent from other community members, performs field-level conflict detection and resolution, and updates the local copy of the database. Conflict resolution is performed according to configurable business rules.

Compatibility, Pricing and Availability

SyncDeK 5.0 licensing options include the SyncDeK Single-user Engine, for deploying standalone FileMaker Pro databases, and the SyncDeK Network Engine, for synchronizing networked FileMaker Server data sources.

SyncDeK Single-user Engines and SyncDeK Network Engines are available today, compatible with Mac OS X, Windows XP and 2000, and with FileMaker Pro 6, FileMaker Pro 7, FileMaker Server 6 and FileMaker Server 7.

For a limited time, a SyncDeK Single-user Engine is introductory priced at US$199 (regularly US$249), and a SyncDeK Network Engine is introductory priced at US$699 (regularly US $849). Combinations of SyncDeK engines are also included in two available "starter kits" which are introductory priced at US$1299 (regularly US$1499).

SyncDeK Developer Kit also announced today (see related release) is introductory priced at US$499 (regularly US$749). Introductory prices are in effect through July 31, 2004.

SyncDeK is sold and supported directly by WorldSync, Inc. at www.WorldSync.com. Fully functional evaluation packages are available for download.
