Synchronica Launches Self-Care Push Email Solution for Businesses
Mobile Gateway Enterprise Edition Enables Nokia Series 40 Mobile Phones to Connect to Microsoft Exch

Synchronica Mobile Gateway Enterprise Edition is targeted at SMEs, as well as the middle / junior management layers in large enterprises where it can complement existing smartphone-based solutions. It is available immediately at and can be purchased, downloaded, and deployed on a mobile phone fleet within a few hours.

The cost-effective solution provides carrier-grade security, reliability, and scalability and has already been selected by a major Indian bank for its middle and junior management tiers. The bank is in the process of deploying Mobile Gateway Enterprise Edition to an initial 10,000 employees to supplement the smartphones used by executive staff. Synchronica now expects this approach to be replicated in other businesses.

Kathryn Weldon, Principal Analyst, Enterprise Mobility, at Current Analysis says: 'What makes Mobile Gateway Enterprise Edition different from other enterprise mobile email offerings is that it works on almost any phone in use today. This makes it ideal for today's tough economic conditions because businesses do not need to spend a fortune on new handsets and expensive contracts to cascade mobile email through the organization and realize productivity gains.'

Carsten Brinkschulte, CEO of Synchronica, adds: 'We felt there was a gap in the market for a low-cost, business-grade mobile email and synchronization solution that could be installed on the corporate network and managed internally as an alternative to a hosted solution. In today's climate, where the focus is on improving employee productivity and keeping costs down, an affordable self-care mobility solution hits the right spot. Our solution can cost about half as much per year as competing options and is an ideal supplement enabling smartphone-like functionality on entry-level devices.'

Mobile Gateway Enterprise Edition includes a Microsoft Windows installer allowing businesses to install and host it on their own servers.

Mobile Gateway Enterprise Edition key features:

Supports Microsoft Exchange, Sun Java System Communications Suite, and IBM Lotus Domino corporate email servers, as well as IMAP / POP3 consumer email back-ends

Based on the dominant open industry standards Push IMAP (IMAP IDLE) for mobile email and SyncML (OMA DS) for synchronization of contacts, calendar, tasks, and notes

Zero footprint architecture requires no additional client software to be installed on the handset

Built-in over-the-air device provisioning (OMA CP) using self-care portal enables end-users to configure their devices automatically without requiring corporate IT involvement

Administration portal keeps setup and ongoing management to a minimum and enables IT administrators to define individual and group policies for email, contact, calendar, task, and note entries

Provides strong security (SSL encryption) and scalability from five users up to tens of thousands of users

Works on a wide range of handsets in use today - from smartphones to entry-level phones, such as the Nokia Series 40

Research conducted in 2007 by Freeform Dynamics reveals that businesses view mobile email as an integral part of operational infrastructure. When it is coupled with contact and calendar management, it becomes the most important resource for mobile workers ahead of SMS and sales force automation.
