Infowave Announces Wireless Business Engine™ Support For Lotus Notes & Domino

Domino Connector broadens Infowave's access to enterprise market and expands choice for customers

Bothell, Washington, February 27, 2001 - Infowave Software, Inc. (TSE:IW), a global provider of software that connects enterprise applications to wireless devices, today announced Lotus Notes and Domino support for its Wireless Business Engine. The new Domino Connector will give mobile workers the ability to access their corporate Domino-based email, calendar, to do lists and address book in real-time using a spectrum of wireless devices including laptops, Internet-ready mobile phones, and handheld computers.  The Domino Connector will provide the same high level of security, reliability, optimization and network/device support that the Wireless Business Engine currently offers for Microsoft(r) Exchange(r) and Internet/Intranet access.

"Infowave's core value is in offering companies a wireless solution that is application, network and device agnostic and that takes the guesswork away from IT manager in terms of predicting future needs," said Ron Jasper, vice president of marketing at Infowave. "Providing support for Lotus Notes and Domino is an important part of delivering on our commitment to support a wide range of mission-critical applications on a wide variety of mobile devices. The Domino Connector gives us an enterprise solution that, when coupled with our existing support for Microsoft Exchange, covers the
requirements of an estimated 70% of the existing market of client/server-based messaging solutions. With each new application connector that we deliver for our Wireless Business Engine, Infowave extends its lead in offering what we believe to be the most complete solution available today."

"Adding integrated wireless Notes and Domino connectivity is vital to addressing North American corporate needs as well for entering into the European market," said Naqi Jaffery, vice president of mobile wireless research at The Strategis Group, a Washington, DC-based telecommunications
market research firm. "Corporate end-users should look for globally supported wireless products when creating their wireless strategy and should consider products that offer these essential components - multi-device, multi-network, and back end corporate application support."

Infowave sells its software through both direct and indirect channels and in 2000, signed a comprehensive, worldwide distribution agreement with Compaq Computers to sell, implement and support Infowave's wireless products along with Compaq's line of laptops, servers and iPAQ Pocket PCs.

Lotus Notes and Domino is one of the world's most popular messaging and collaboration platforms and includes a suite of personal productivity, electronic mail, groupware and collaborative computing technologies.  Notes/Domino has an installed worldwide user base of over 78 million seats, with 10 million seats added in the fourth quarter 2000 alone.  Infowave's Domino Connector is scheduled to ship in the summer.
