Wireless messaging is utilized in daily business practices and supports the increasing number of remote field employees while improving company profitability and productivity.

Revenue projections, based on industry demand and market share are estimated to reach $1.75 million in HipLinkXS sales within the first 12 months of launch. “In fact, several major customers using the HipLinkXS trial version have already been secured, and significant revenues from our installed base, direct sales, and partner programs are anticipated,” said Kim Wold, President of Cross Communications. “With the expected boom in wireless messaging estimated to be in the 25-50% growth range over the next 5 years, HipLinkXS is poised for increased market penetration and tremendous revenue potential.”

There are three packages available in HipLinkXS. Application Messaging, a messaging "engine", that can be fully integrated with any enterprise application; Desktop Messaging, a stand-alone messaging system, is used as a simple “point and click” feature, to send messages to anyone by typing a message and pressing send; and HipLinkXS network service, a hosted service using the Semotus Gateway, is a direct, high-speed link to all wireless data networks in North America.

HipLinkXS provides a significant value proposition for corporations, such as reducing costs, increasing mobile workforce efficiency and productivity, secure data management, and success factors such as reliability, email integration, and service support.

HipLinkXS integrates with applications such as Remedy/Peregrine and acts as the messaging system to serve the main support and assistance center for customer, employee and partner issues.
