SOTI Announces Support for Janam's Rugged Mobile Computers

SOTI's MobiScan will be pre-installed on XM Series Devices

January 10, 2011

SOTI Inc., a market-leader that develops state-of-the-art software solutions to manage mobile devices internationally, today announced that SOTI MobiScan will be preloaded on all XM Series devices from Janam Technologies LLC, a leading provider of rugged mobile computers that scan barcodes and communicate wirelessly.

Beginning in January, 2011, all Janam XM60+ andXM66 Series mobile computers, which are known for their advanced barcode scanning, lightning fast processing, and compact/lightweight structure, will be preloaded with SOTI MobiScan.  MobiScan is an out-of-the box software solution which allows a user to configure the MobiControl Agent and connection settings (Wi-Fi, Cellular APN, etc.) on Windows CE and Windows Mobile powered devices.

The arrangement gives Janam’s XM Series customers the ability to establish network connectivity and communicate with the MobiControl Deployment Server by scanning a barcode.  SOTI MobiControl, SOTI’s award-winning mobile device management solution, then enables users to easily load the necessary software in order to track, monitor, manage and control their mobile computers, resulting in cost and time savings, increased productivity, as well as adherence to the highest standards in quality and reliability from proven industry leaders.

“With Janam’s hardware supremacy and SOTI’s domination of the software industry, this is an ideal arrangement,” said Carl Rodrigues, President and CEO of SOTI. “We at SOTI aim to complete the cycle of delivering utmost satisfaction and performance to users by simplifying Mobile Device Management from a software perspective and, with this new partnership, SOTI can ensure our MobiControl solution reaches those who need ultimate control over their mobile handhelds, with the simple scan of the MobiScan barcode!”

“Janam delivers high quality, affordable mobile computers that survive in tough environments and have the features to get the job done,” said Harry B. Lerner, CEO of Janam.  “Collaboration with industry-leading partners like SOTI enables us to deliver maximum value and we are proud to offer customers the ability to access SOTI’s robust solution.”

Janam’s XM Series mobile computers are the only products in the category that weigh less than 10 ounces and have a full 3.5” display. The devices are capable of withstanding repeated 4 foot/1.2 meter drops to concrete and are sealed to IP54 standards.  The XM Series features integrated 1D barcode scanning and built-in 2D barcode scanning capability. Janam’s 2D scanning solution enables users to upgrade barcode scanning functionality from 1D to 1D/2D on any device at any time with a simple firmware upgrade.  Antimicrobial configurations were recently added to the product Series.
