ROSEVILLE, Calif. -- April 30, 2014

Gupta Technologies, a global provider of application development, database and
migration software, today announced Continental Software Services’ (CSS)
successful use of TD Mobile to add mobile solutions to its application
portfolio. CSS built a mobile application using TD Mobile to integrate backend
data from a corporate freight system with the GPS feature of the phone,
enabling up-to-the-minute information on delivery times and locations.

CSS develops transportation related applications for customers with operations
throughout Europe and North Africa. Its client needed a mobile application
that supported native GPS on the phone to address the growing problem of
congested roads impacting delivery schedules and routes. CSS used TD Mobile to
quickly build an application accessible by any smart phone that enables the
store to monitor the truck’s location and provide updates on estimated arrival
time based on the delivery vehicle’s location.

“With increasing traffic congestion, actual delivery times were difficult to
predict accurately,” said Edward Forrest, CEO of Continental Software Services
Ltd. “We were impressed with the ease and speed at which we were able to
develop the app with TD Mobile and the simplicity of connecting the data from
our core ‘QFreight’ system with the location tracking GPS features of the
device. Our client was able to monitor deliveries and times due at its
locations, which greatly enhanced its customer service and satisfaction.”

CSS has plans to use TD Mobile to extend the app to allow the store to record
merchandise damages or incorrect product shipments using photos, which would
sync to a back-end incident reporting system. TD Mobile enables CSS to grow
its business by providing cost-effective mobile applications to its customers.

TD Mobile is a single, complete development solution for building HTML5 web
applications for iOS, Android, Windows and Mac from one source code.
Developers around the world use TD mobile because it unifies the technologies
required—HTML/CSS/JavaScript Java/.NET, web services, JSON, JQuery and more—in
one system for building and deploying mobile apps. By simplifying development,
the time and cost for delivering mobile solutions is significantly reduced.

“TD Mobile shines at integrating features on the device including camera, GPS,
e-signature, and bar code scanning with the UI and backend data sources,” said
Frank Verardi, Vice President and General Manager of Gupta Technologies.
“While native app development easily integrates device features, it takes more
time and expertise to deliver that functionality for multiple OSs and devices.
TD Mobile delivers a native app experience with the advantage of mobile web
app development for running on any platform and device.”

Availability: TD Mobile is now available. A 30 day trial is available for
download from www.guptatechnologies.com.
