News Briefs - Correction

Correction: In the Product Watch section of our March issue, we incorrectly identified Hayes Software Systems as the manufacturer of the Symbol SPT 1800 handheld device. In fact, Hayes Software Systems is only a reseller of the product, as they design software for textbook inventory and parking permit distribution (e.g., TIP in Handand Park It in Hand) to run on the unit. The actual maker of the SPT 1800 is Symbol Technologies ( In addition, the price listed for the Symbol SPT 1800 was for the unit with the TIP in Hand software loaded on it, and the image included was of the Symbol SPT 1550, not the 1800 model.  To contact Hayes Software Systems call (877) 847-3366 or visit the company online at for more product information.
