Appear Networks Announces Record Sales of Intelligent Wireless Communication Platform
New Tornado 100 Winner Closes Fiscal Year 2004 with Strong Revenue Growth

Stockholm, Sweden, 26 January 2005: Appear Networks, a leading provider of intelligent wireless communication platforms for mobile workforces, today announced record sales and strong revenue growth for Fiscal Year 2004. Appear Networks attributes its strong financial performance to continued investment in the development of advanced data-filtering technology, ergonomic user interfaces and distributed architectures. Since 2000, Appear has been developing an intelligent communication platform that enables location-aware applications and connects mobile workers with instant access to voice, data and video communications.

“With a long-term focus on the enterprise market, Appear has proven the scalability of its business model based on license sales,” says Ann-Louise Palm, CEO of Appear Networks. “Appear focused on large accounts with long-selling cycles including train operators, airports, airlines, and local councils who are now delivering solid recurring revenues. Ninety percent of our customers who acquired an initial pilot license of the Appear software are now rolling it out in their network”.

Appear Networks’ intelligent communication platform enables on-site mobile workers to access location-aware enterprise applications and VoIP services securely transmitted over standard wirelessly enabled networks. Appear’s patented Click & Run ™ technology provides a browserless, one-button-click access to mobile applications, eliminating time-consuming installation and configuration processes. Appear’s context-aware engine filters information through pre-programmed parameters (location as well as user profile, device-type, or access speed) based on advanced algorithms, guaranteeing the delivery of up-to-date, accurate information to authorized employees. In a highly mobile environment, easily accessing key data at the point of work enhances employees’ ability to perform critical tasks– increasing employee productivity, improving customer service and reducing costs.
