Electronic forms company JetForm Corp is extending its previously high-end focus into the rapidly growing handheld computer market, with new versions of its software supporting Microsoft Windows CE-compatible systems. The rapid move comes largely as a result of an agreement signed in January with Joey Technologies Inc, a developer of forms technology for personal digital assistants. The deal gives JetForm exclusive worldwide rights to Joey’s software, which it will be integrating with its existing software products. JetForm is also taking a financial stake in the St Petersberg, Florida-based company, though further financial details were not disclosed. Phil Weaver, executive vice president of JetForm said we have options to acquire more; it’s a strategic investment, as such we have participation at management level and a well defined equity structure. Ottawa, Canada-based JetForm also said that it has signed contracts with NEC Corp and LG Electronics Inc – the old Goldstar – and that the two companies would be bundling its software with its handheld products due for release later in the summer. Weaver was keen to position the move as an extension to its core business in enterprise-wide electronic forms rather than a separate move into the handheld space. We’re looking to extend the reach of our existing technologies and provide seamless integration into our desktop product, he said. The company is aiming the software at its existing market, essentially banking and global 1000 companies. JetForm Filler for Windows CE is available now priced at $100. Users of JetForm Design, the company’s graphical development tool can upgrade to the latest version which provides forms creation for Windows CE Filler forms for $250.
