Multiple end users and systems administrators are able to remotely connect to a telnet server computer (Windows, Linux, UNIX, Macintosh) and run their console/character mode programs through the command line on their handhelds. Pragma provides full featured, cost-effective solutions targeted to retail, warehousing, manufacturing and point of sale customers.

"Our clients are looking to reduce cost and memory overhead while providing feature rich functionality. Working closely with them, we have met those demands and exceeded our customers ´ expectations," said Mike Gold, Pragma Systems vice president of business development.
