Boston (July 26, 2000) - OpenAir, the leader in Web-native professional services
automation, today announced the availability of OpenAir for the Palm Computing® platform, a fully integrated companion
program that enables OpenAir users to log time and expenses while disconnected from
the Web and the www.openair.com Web site. Users can then move the data entered into
their Palm®-compatible device into
their OpenAir account using HotSync® the next time they connect to the Web and their OpenAir account.

valuable feature, as they can work on their administrative tasks when it is most
convenient for them, without having to be connected to the Internet.

platform is compatible with Palm® or
Handspring® devices and uses the
HotSync® feature of a PDA. It requires
a Palm OS® 2.0 compatible device and
Microsoft Windows 95/98/NT/2000.
Currently, the entire suite of OpenAir services, including the OpenAir for the Palm
Computing“ platform feature, is free for the first user in an account and each
