Vodafone yesterday announced the roll out of push E-Mail, a service providing real-time,
secure and remote access to E-Mail, contacts and calendar direct to a range of
business-focused mobile devices.
New E-Mail, calendar appointments and contact details are automatically 'pushed' to the customer's selected device and updates
made on the device are automatically reflected on the customer's PC. In
addition, customers can choose to download E-Mail attachments in popular office
formats, including Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint and Adobe PDF.
Vodafone's research shows business customers have different mobile E-Mail access
requirements, depending on the size and type of the organization. The Vodafone
push E-Mail service caters for all business IT environments, with an Enterprise
version for companies wishing to provide access to their employees, a Desktop
Redirector version for people who use their own mobile equipment at work and an
ISP version for sole traders or small businesses.
During the launch phase, the
range of devices that support the push E-Mail service will include the
Vodafone v1620, the Motorola
MPx220, the Nokia 6630 and the Sony Ericsson P910i. Additional devices that
support push E-Mail functionality will be introduced into the range in the
"Vodafone intends to offer the best and easiest to use mobile E-Mail
services for our business customers," said Peter Bamford, Chief Marketing
Officer at Vodafone.
"Vodafone push E-Mail means more customers can now
mobilize their businesses and benefit from greater business productivity and
responsiveness whilst on the move. Customers can choose the mobile E-Mail
solution that complements their IT system, whilst enabling mobile E-Mail
users and Company IT Managers to select the device that meets their needs."
The push E-Mail service is currently available from Vodafone Germany,
Vodafone Greece, Vodafone Italy, SFR (France) and Elisa (Finland). Vodafone
Spain is launching the service today with additional Vodafone markets launching
push E-Mail over the course of this year.
