News: Dataviz Announces Documents to Go Version 9

DataViz has announced Documents To Go version 9 with InTact Technology™. This technology ensures that ALL file formatting is kept “intact” when editing and e-mailing office files on a handheld or smartphone. Other new features include an integrated file explorer, a new user interface, updates to Word To Go, Sheet To Go and Slideshow To Go.

DataViz’ Documents To Go 9 Sets the Wireless Office Free

New InTact Technology Eliminates the Need for Synchronization

Milford, CT -- Today DataViz® announced Documents To Go® 9 for the Palm OS® platform. Documents To Go is a mobile office suite which allows users to create, view and edit Microsoft® Word, Excel and PowerPoint files as well as view Adobe® PDF files on a mobile device. Version 9  has many new enhancements with the most significant being the addition of InTact Technology™ which ensures that ALL file formatting is kept “intact” when editing and e-mailing office files on a handheld or smartphone. Other new features include: An integrated file explorer, a new user interface, updates to Word To Go, Sheet To Go and Slideshow To Go. Customers who have a previous version or who received the Professional Edition on their Palm® branded device can upgrade for $29.99.

For years Documents To Go has utilized DocSync™ Technology to retain complex file formatting when editing files on a mobile device.  This technology developed by DataViz, relies on a wired synchronization between the computer and mobile device in order to merge changes back into the original document on the desktop while retaining file formatting. With customer expectations growing and devices becoming more and more powerful, customers are now relying on their smartphones as standalone devices instead of companions to the desktop. 

DataViz has replaced DocSync Technology with InTact Technology in Documents To Go 9. Now files that are edited on the mobile device no longer have to rely on a wired synchronization with a desktop in order to maintain file integrity.  Edited files on the mobile device can be emailed as attachments and still retain their complex file formatting including track changes, headers and footers, macros and animations to name a few. To find out more about InTact Technology and it's benefits download a whitepaper from www.dataviz.com/intactpaper.
“With more and more customers using wireless devices to mobilize their office we are finding a growing expectation and a need for a reliable document editing solution that does not rely on a wired synchronization,” said Danny Tu product manager, DataViz, Inc. “The addition of InTact Technology allows our customers to be truly mobile and gives them complete confidence when it comes to editing files on their device."

“As Palm smartphones like the Treo 700p have become more and more powerful, a need for a native document editing solution that can take advantage of this mobile computing platform becomes very important,” said Mike Rank, director of developer relations for Palm, Inc. “The addition of InTact Technology takes document editing on a wireless device to a whole new level.”

The main Documents To Go office applications for the handheld have also been updated.
The new enhancements include:

File Explorer - An integrated file explorer has been added to the main Documents application to make browsing for files on expansion cards and internal memory easier.

Word To Go - Support for viewing and editing footnotes, endnotes, comments and text boxes has been added. In addition, support for Table Of Contents has also been added.

Sheet To Go - Support for XY scatter plot charts, True Type fonts including varying type faces and font sizes and additional font formatting such as italic and underline has been added.

SlideShow To Go - New additions include support for native PowerPoint editing for both Macintosh and Windows users.

Pricing and Availability

Documents To Go Premium Edition retails for $49.99 and is available directly from DataViz, as well as many retail and online stores including CompUSA, Amazon.com and Handango.com. Upgrade pricing of $29.99 is available directly from DataViz for all previous Documents To Go customers, including those who received Documents To Go as bundled software with a Palm handheld or smartphone.
