Pocket Informant is - together with AgendaFusion - the leading Outlook application for Windows Mobile Pocket PCs but so far, there was no Windows Mobile Smartphone version available. Now SBSH Mobile Software and Web Information Solutions announced a new branding for SBSH Papyrus as Pocket Informant for SmartPhone (PISP) devices. The new PISP version will be offered on WebIS online store and distribution channels where as SBSH Mobile Software will continue to product distribution using the Papyrus brand name.
Papyrus turns your Smartphone into a powerful time management system by offering innovative and compelling tools to manage and keep track of your schedule, plus advanced views, category coloring and icons far beyond the ability of the default Smartphone Calendar and Tasks programs. What's more, Papyrus is highly customizable, so it works the way you work while keeping the intuitive and user-friendly interface you expect of your Smartphone.
"With the new additional PISP branding we believe we will be able to form together a complete solution for mobile device users that will help users to manage their agenda using a Pocket PC or a SmartPhone. With upcoming Papyrus/PISP updates we will focus on porting many of the powerful features Pocket Informant offers today for Pocket PC users, allowing users to use the same advanced features on their SmartPhone and vice-versa, making the transition of information much easier" stated Amit Regev, SBSH Mobile Software CEO.
"We're happy to be able to work with SBSH to provide a solution to our customers moving to the Microsoft SmartPhone platform. Pocket Informant for SmartPhone is a world class application that is built upon the strengths of the SmartPhone and incorporates the same easy to use usability of our Pocket PC product." stated Alex Kac, Web Information Solutions president and founder.
Additionally, both companies announced a new major update for Papyrus/PISP to version 1.3, featuring major work on user-experience aspects for Smartphone devices with landscape screens and QWERTY keyboard (e.g. Motorola Q, Samsung i320), complete re-design of the monthly view display and much more.
