Between People Any Time, Anywhere –
BERKELEY, Calif., June 14, 2004 – WorldSync, Inc. today shipped SyncDeK(R)
Single-user Engine 5.0 and SyncDeK Network Engine 5.0, powering bi-directional
asynchronous data replication for data in FileMaker databases that are
persistently connected to the Internet or used offline.
Now for the first time, businesses and organizations can implement standalone
technology that synchronizes data between FileMaker databases. SyncDeK 5.0 is
compatible with FileMaker(R) 6 and FileMaker 7 databases on Mac OS X(R) and
Windows(R) platforms. SyncDeK 5.0 is introductory priced for immediate
deployment (see pricing section below) and available directly from
“SyncDeK drives collaboration with powerful, trustworthy data replication,”
explained Jason Erickson, founder and CEO of WorldSync, Inc. “FileMaker
solutions can now provide true enterprise-level data replication previously
possible through expensive scripted solutions. Now, anyone using FileMaker
databases can collaborate with co-workers who are mobile or at remote
even if changes are made to the database offline. Our goal is to ignite a
revolution of productivity for businesses, enterprise workgroups or any
SyncDeK 5.0 is a powerful application and plug-in combination that together
provides the synchronization of specified fields between distributed FileMaker
databases based on configurable rules, using commonly available Internet
protocols. Designed for use by remote sites and mobile workers, often working
offline, SyncDeK combines the power of Java-based background services with the
flexibility of standard Internet communication protocols to synchronize XML
Highly configurable and scalable, replication applies to individual data fields
or entire FileMaker database files across client/client, client/server or
server/server solutions. SyncDeK is configured, tested, deployed and maintained
using the new SyncDeK Developer Kit (see related release, dated today).
SyncDeK’s store and forward technology provides one-click data replication that
efficiently gathers local changes to the database, packages these into
compressed, encrypted shuttles and transports them over the Internet to
community members. SyncDeK simultaneously gathers remote shuttles sent from
other community members, performs field-level conflict detection and
and updates the local copy of the database. Conflict resolution is performed
according to configurable business rules.

SyncDeK 5.0 licensing options include the SyncDeK Single-user Engine, for
