MY DOCS ONLINE TEAMS UP WITH LAPLINK.COM TO ANNOUNCE EXPRESSLOADER FOR MY DOCS ONLINE
Partnership Provides File Synchronization Between Desktop and Virtual Internet Drive for 'Anytime, Anywhere' Access, Including Wireless Devices
Naples, FL. - June 27, 2000 - My Docs Online, Inc., pioneer in Web-based "virtual drive" file storage and wireless access and control of files, and LapLink.com Inc., the leading file transfer and synchronization software developer, today announced ExpressLoader for My Docs Online, an Internet File Management utility that allows users to automatically synchronize any number of files or folders among multiple PCs and their My Docs Online virtual drive. Powered by LapLink.com's patented SpeedSync technology, Express Loader enhances the way My Docs Online users can store, access, organize and synchronize their desktop and virtual drive files.
With ExpressLoader, My Docs Online users can now schedule automatic, transparent file transfer and synchronization between their home and office PCs, laptops and their virtual drive. Using LapLink.com's SpeedSync technology to detect and compress, then upload or download only the changed portions of files, files can be synchronized at rates much faster than standard file transfers on the Internet.
The ExpressLoader client, which is available for Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows NT and Windows 2000, uses optimized communication with the ExpressLoader server component, which resides at the My Docs Online web site and uses the XML-based WebDAV protocol to communicate with the user's My Docs Online disk space. SSL Network Encryption enables users to transfer and manage their files safely and securely over the Internet using industry standard encryption.
"We are pleased to be working with LapLink.com to provide mobile professionals with a new, sophisticated, Web-based file synchronization product. With ExpressLoader for My Docs Online, changes to important files or folders will be automatically propagated across all the user's computing devices", said Steve Dempsey, President of My Docs Online, Inc. "This assures the mobile professional with true anywhere, anytime, any device access to the current versions of critical business documents."
"The number of mobile professionals using the Internet as a vehicle to access and organize their files is accelerating at magnitude speeds," said Mark Eppley, CEO of LapLink.com Inc. "Our strong relationship with My Docs Online presents a monumental opportunity for both companies to provide end-users with a cutting-edge and total file management solution that enables fast file storage, access, transfer and synchronization."
ExpressLoader for My Docs Online will be available in the third quarter as part of the enhanced Premium My Docs Online service, which starts at $34.95 per year.
