MOBILE AUTOMATION AND POWERQUEST PARTNER TO INTRODUCE FIRST MOBILE MIGRATION SOLUTION - Mobile Migration Manager Migrate Remote and Mobile PCs in one integrated solution.

Westlake Village, Calif. - October 21, 2002- Mobile Automation Inc., the leading provider of Mobile Lifecycle Management Software, and PowerQuest® Corporation, a provider of storage lifecycle automation solutions worldwide, today announced partnership that allows Mobile Automation Inc. to offer Mobile Migration Manager  , the industry's first fully automated and integrated mobile migration solution. This integrated solution is immediately available worldwide from Mobile Automation.

Mobile Migration Manager  integrates components of Mobile Automation's Mobile Lifecycle Management Suite with PowerQuest's Virtual Volume Imaging (V2i) Technology, included in its operating system (OS) deployment and user profile migration solutions, PowerQuest PQIDeploy and Migration Manager.

The integration of the two best-of-breed technologies creates a groundbreaking, seamless solution that establishes the only mobile migration solution on the market today. Whether in a LAN, WAN or wireless network environment, Mobile Migration Manager  can migrate remote and mobile PCs to Windows 2000 or XP anyhow, anywhere, over any connection speed.

Using sophisticated technologies such as dynamic bandwidth throttling and smart fan-out replication, Mobile Migration Manager   enables enterprise organizations to migrate thousands of remote PCs over a short period of time, with minimal IT intervention.  Additionally, because Mobile Migration Manager deploys the new image in the background, end user productivity remains constant and dramatically reduces the traditional costs of a Windows 2000 or Windows XP migration project.

"Both PowerQuest and Mobile Automation have identified the market need for a seamless, automated OS migration solution for remote and mobile PCs.  Mobile Migration Manager   will provide a fast return on investment and at the same time can be rapidly implemented and is easy to use. This leading edge mobile solution is particularly valuable for our enterprise customers who continue to see an increase in deployment of laptops for their remote and mobile workforce, and for our Managed Services Partners, who until now were unable to provide migrations as an offering due to the associated onsite costs," said Douglas Neal, president and CEO Mobile Automation Inc.

"Enterprises increasingly require OS migration support for remote and mobile laptops," said B.D. (Bill) Johnson, senior vice president of business development and OEM partnerships at PowerQuest. "Our V2i-based deployment technology, combined with Mobile Automation's targeted mobile products, provides a robust solution that accelerates the adoption and distribution of high-value OS and application upgrades."
