JP Systems Announces One-Touch Communicator, a Personal Communication
Solution Exclusively for Palm Computing Platform

                       -Product is truly universal in its application,
enabling users to
                                    connect from anywhere, at any time-

PC EXPO, New York, June 8, 1998JP Systems today announced the release of a
breakthrough personalized communications package for the Palm Computing?
platform, One-Touch Communicator?. This powerful software package is
designed exclusively for users of the 3Com PalmPilot?, IBM WORKPAD and
PalmIII connected organizers and is easily integrated with virtually all
communications networks. With the One-Touch Communicator, PalmPilot
connected organizers, Workpads, and Palm III? users can send, receive,
store, reply to and forward text messages to any email system, as well as to
numeric and alphanumeric pagers.

With the One-touch Messaging Solution, Mobile Professionals no longer have
to travel or call back to the office to retrieve vital information, says
Prabhaker Guniganti, President JP Systems, Inc. This easy and convenient
access to information via different networks significantly improves
productivity, efficiency and customer service. Undoubtedly, this gives the
Mobile Professional an unprecedented competitive advantage.

The platform-independent One-Touch Communicator is a fully featured software
package that can be used anywhere. It provides two-way messaging and email
connectivity for the Palm Computing platform in three different ways. First,
One-Touch Communicator can connect to a wireline modem, a wireless IP modem,
or to the Skytel/MCI two-way pager. The full SMTP and POP3 protocol
facilitates messaging to any intranet or Internet connection. Second, users
may also configure up to six distinct email accounts within the software
application. The easy-to-use user interface also pulls the email addresses
and pager numbers from the Address List and lists them alphabetically within
the One-Touch GUI. This eliminates the need to create a separate contact
list within One-Touch because the software thoughtfully does this for the
user. Finally, when composing email, One-Touch Communicator automatically
creates the header information for existing contacts with a single tap on
the contact name. The software also supports filtering and Rule wizards
within the program.

One of One-Touch Communicators unique features for the Palm Computing
platform user is the ability to send and receive Vcards and Vcalendars as
attachments to or from Microsoft Outlook? or any other software that
supports Vcards and Vcalendarsall without synchronization using a wireless
or wireline modem. This powerful feature allows users to update and organize
their Outlook databases independent of a PC from wherever they are at
anytime. This also enables users to send a Memo, To Do List, or Contact
Information to another PalmPilot, Palm III, or IBM Workpad PC Companion? as
attachments. The receiver then downloads the information on his or her own
PalmPilot connected organizer in the appropriate application. With these
features, users can update and organize their information from one place,
and also effectively communicate information to a group of users or an
individual.  By providing group and simultaneous email and paging, a
messaging back-up system and allowing the capability of establishing
multiple email accounts on the Palm Computing platform, One-Touch
Communicator is the complete communications solution for mobile

communicate with others more efficiently ," says Mark Bercow, vice president
of strategic alliances and platform development at Palm Computing, a 3Com
Company. "The One-Touch Communicator will HAVE? impact on the way people do
