Expand Beyond Corp., a leader in real-time mobile business software, announced it has been awarded a fundamental and broad patent by the U.S. Patent and Trademark office. Titled "System, Method, and Apparatus for the Wireless Monitoring and Management of Computer Systems," the patent has an extensive list of 46 approved claims - making it one of the most comprehensive and far-reaching patents awarded in the mobile business software industry.

U.S. Patent Number 6,772,169 describes monitoring and managing systems such as databases, servers and applications from wireless devices. It also describes methods of navigating around record sets, which has been an obstacle for today's technology, especially for large sets of data. The patent also describes innovative methods for formatting information on relatively small screens of handhelds - a barrier that companies face when attempting to develop mobile applications. The patent additionally discloses systems for graphing data on wireless devices, which are crucial for mobile professionals.

"This patent will further distinguish Expand Beyond from other companies in this rapidly growing space," said Brian Rupp, a patent lawyer and partner at Gardner, Carton & Douglas in Chicago who works with Expand Beyond to protect its intellectual property developments. "It demonstrates their innovation and strength in the mobile business software industry."
