Penn State University Radically Improves Facilities Management Using GiveMePower’s PowerCAD CE Mobility Software And Dell Handheld PCs

February 092005
CALGARY , Alberta – February 8, 2005. Adding to its growing list of satisfied customers, GiveMePower Corporation (OTCBB:GMPW), a provider of computer-aided design (CAD) and graphics development software for Windows® mobile, wireless and desktop computing, announced today that prestigious Penn State University has increased productivity, noted substantial time savings, reduced errors and improved collaboration in their facilities management group using the Company’s PowerCAD® CE mobile CAD and VoiceNOTE™ hands-free audio note keeping solution on Dell Axim® wireless handheld PCs.

Prior to PowerCAD® CE, Penn State’s facilities management group--who require as-built drawings for all of their facilities--recorded measurements using a pad of paper and a measuring tape. Next, they would take the sketches to their office to recreate them manually on a desktop PC using AutoCAD®. Searching for a more efficient method, Scott Hord, facilities analyst within the Facilities Resources & Planning department at Penn State, took a proactive approach by gathering a team to commence development of a mobile solution. Then he discovered PowerCAD® CE.

“PowerCAD CE is exactly what we have been looking for,” commented Hord. “We now manage our drawings directly from anywhere on campus. No more returning to the office with a stack of sketches to redraw in AutoCAD. We simply add or make changes as needed during building walk-throughs, save the file as an AutoCAD drawing on our Dell Axim handheld PCs and drag-and-drop them to our desktop computers back at the office.”

Hord noted they also have the ability to send and receive drawings through e-mail or by wireless web. And by using PowerCAD CE’s exclusive VoiceNOTE™ hands-free audio note keeping technology, Hord’s team saves hours of time by speaking directly into the handheld PC with detailed verbal information instantly embedded into the drawing and referenced to specific objects or locations.

Bill Walton, president and CEO of GiveMePower stated, “Again, we see our PowerCAD solutions making life easier for our users, saving time and adding immediate value to the bottom line. We are thrilled that Penn State University chose PowerCAD CE to improve the way they manage their facilities.”

PowerCAD® CE is part of GiveMePower’s complete family of CAD Anywhere™ 2D and 3D design, viewing and mobile/wireless collaboration solutions – each designed to save time and money in the office, in the field, or on the shop floor.
