Viventus has announced a Wireless Application Protocol (WAP) solution for FileMaker Pro.

The software allows users to access, enter and update information on desktop-based FileMaker Pro databases from WAP-enabled mobile phones. The package costs £320 and is available directly from Viventus.

Norway-based Viventus is a FileMaker solutions alliance partner. WAP is an open, global protocol specification that allows wireless devices to access and interact with information services. The WAP Forum expects over 500 million handsets to be WAP-enabled by 2003.

Dominique Goupil, president of Filemaker, said the company “salutes the outstanding new development”.
