Hannover/Germany, 05/07/2011. (euro adhoc) - Hoeft & Wessel AG has entered into
a partnership with OPAL Associates Holding AG for the distribution of mobile
terminals in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Denmark. As a leading systems
integrator headquartered in Switzerland, OPAL now extends its product portfolio
with mobile terminals from Skeye. OPAL perceives itself as a full-range provider
in the Auto-ID industry segment and realises holistic concepts in the fields of
mobile computing, printing and SAP integration.

With its mobile Skeye brand products, Hoeft & Wessel is a specialist provider
of solutions for deployment in the field service, logistics and in the retail
segment. Hoeft & Wessel AG, headquartered in Hannover, is a leading
manufacturer of industry standard handhelds and is the market leader in the
German retail sector with its products. The product portfolio ranges from
robust enterprise PDAs with smart phone functions and extends to include
conventional handhelds and robust tablet terminals all the way through to
mobile POS systems with large-format printers.

Using the specialised mobile solutions from Hoeft & Wessel, not only can OPAL
ideally meet the requirements of its customers engaged in field services,
logistics and the retail sector; the company can also extend its business
activities to include segments within its target markets that have not been
developed in the past.

 "As the leading Auto ID partner in the DACH region, we expect our product
range to be complemented by innovative systems from Hoeft & Wessel AG and,
therefore, the expansion of our market presence with optimum, holistic
solutions from a single source," says Michel A. Bosshard, Managing Director of
OPAL Associates Holding AG, delighted with the expansion of the product range.

"With Opal as a strong and internationally well known enterprise, we continue
to expand our partnership network in Europe. This partnership shows that, as
specialist providers, with our mobile terminals we can extend the range of
services of our partners very well, enabling them to expand their business
activities," explains Peter Siggaard-Andersen, Head of Skeye Global Channel at
Hoeft & Wessel AG.

Hoeft & Wessel uses an attractive programme to further extend its partnership
business for mobile terminals on an international scale, broadening its sales
base in the process.
