MobileHwy Wireless Building Contractor and Inspector Services Marblehead, MA (April 14, 2004) - MobileHWY, LLC has chosen Inventu Corporation as their host integration "vendor of choice" over their existing host integration vendor relationships. The first project where Inventu's Screensurfer host integration product will be used is at Gaston County, North Carolina.

For the Gaston County project, Inventu Screensurfer will act as middleware between MobileHWY's Mobile CONTRACTOR and Mobile INSPECTOR products and Gaston County's backend, AS400 inspection and permitting applications. Inventu Screensurfer will process data from MobileHWY's applications, retrieve and input data to the backend, AS400 and pass data back to the MobileHWY applications to deliver building inspection and permitting information to various wireless devices. All data transmission between MobileHWY's products and Inventu Screensurfer is via XML-over-HTTP.

Mr. Paul Watkins, CEO of MobileHWY, said:

"We were unsatisfied with our current host integration vendor and after researching the available solutions in the marketplace we chose Inventu Corporation. Inventu has it all - professionalism, a strong commitment to customer service and the technology to meet our needs now and in the future. We look forward to a long and lasting relationship with Inventu!"

Mr. Bill Thorne, President of Inventu, said: "We have worked with MobileHWY in the past and were disappointed that they chose another vendor at the time. Now that we have won MobileHWY back, we could not be happier to work with MobileHWY and their customers to bridge the data gap between MobileHWY's Mobile products and their customers' backend, host applications."
