New WorldMate Release Boasts Enhancements for Cross-Platform Travel and Itinerary Management Services

LOD, Israel — MobiMate announces the release of the all new and improved WorldMate(R) Professional Edition 2005 for Palm, Pocket PC and Desktop platforms, which offers travellers and corporate travel planners enhanced itinerary and trip management capabilities, cross-platform synchronization and pre-planning and en-route travel itinerary updating features.

WorldMate users with Palm and Pocket PC devices are now able to collaborate with the all new Desktop version and receive over-the-air (OTA) updates whenever a change is made to an itinerary. WorldMate’s Desktop Companion also enables users to send these saved itineraries from WorldMate to anyone on the Web via email as WMI file attachments.

“Our goal is to provide business travelers and business travel organizers with the means to manage their travel needs from any platform they want,” explains MobiMate’s CEO, Nadav Gur. “Giving users functional cross-platform capabilities allows them the freedom to choose how, when and where to create, manage and use WorldMate’s trip and travel planning services.”

In addition to all the cross-platform collaboration features, WorldMate’s Desktop Companion also offers travel planners benefits such as consolidated and precise coordination of multiple trips for numerous passengers, including profiling and trip preference management features such as aircraft seat assignments, meal types, hotel arrangements, frequent flier accounts, car rental service information and more.

The award winning WorldMate(R) continues to receive endorsements from industry giants such as Nokia, Sony Ericsson, ZDNet, Handango, Pocket PC Magazine and PCWorld’s James Martin, who claims the “bottom line (is): don’t leave the country without WorldMate. Period.”
