Janam Technologies LLC, a provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly announced that Bata Italy, a leader in the production and sale of footwear, chose Janam's XP30 rugged Palm OS-based mobile computers to run barcode scanning applications throughout the company's network of stores in Italy, Switzerland, Spain and Portugal.

With a network of 4,600 direct sales outlets and 50,000-plus independent retailers, Bata is one of the world's largest shoe manufacturers and retailers. The company's mobile inventory and in-store solutions are mission-critical. The company relies on an end-to-end technology solution developed by Maxima, a premiere mobile solution provider to the retail fashion market, to increase productivity, streamline processes, bring critical information to the front line and support Bata's commitment to provide customers with great value and the best possible service.

The small, light, rugged, Palm OS-based XP30 met all of Bata's hardware selection criteria. In addition, several features made the XP30 a shoe-in for Bata. Among these were the color screen, long battery life and omni-directional scanning, which allows a user to scan a barcode from any orientation.

"Many companies like Bata are invested in barcode-scanning applications for the Palm OS platform," said Harry B Lerner, CEO of Janam. "These cost-effective solutions continue to deliver tremendous value, and with Janam's XP Series, companies around the world are preserving their investment in applications and work processes. We are very pleased that Bata selected the XP30 to extend its proven solution with updated, more powerful, fully-featured hardware."

The XP Series from Janam is the only rugged, mobile computer that scans barcodes and combines Palm OS Garnet, numeric keypad option, user-accessible memory, NAND flash memory backup, USB connectivity, extended capacity battery option and, in WLAN versions, WiFi Protected Access (WPA) wireless security. All XP Series products meet IP54 sealing requirements, survive drops to concrete from 4' to all six sides and weigh less than 10 ounces.
