Intellisync Corporation has established a global organization to manage emerging opportunities and its client roster in the worldwide mobile carrier market. Intellisync's new Mobile Carrier Organization includes mobile carrier sales, operations and professional services, with responsibility for the Company's hosting facilities and Network Operations Center (NOC).
Intellisync has named Korak Mitra, 44, as senior vice president of worldwide carrier operations to lead the new organization in selling the Company's full suite of mobility products, including wireless email, device management and SyncML standards-based solutions.
The establishment of a formal mobile carrier operation is another step in a series of initiatives designed to align the Company with emerging growth opportunities in the mobility marketplace. Intellisync recently announced agreements with the United States' No. 1 mobile carrier, Verizon Wireless, along with the largest carrier in the Czech Republic, Eurotel Praha, and the leading mobile carrier in Canada, Bell Mobility.
"Our wireless email and device management solutions are being adopted -- or are being reviewed -- by many of the largest mobile carriers in the world," said Woodson (Woody) Hobbs, Intellisync's chief executive officer. "We believe mobile carriers are seeking an alternative to the RIM BlackBerry platform for facilitating wireless email and data synchronization over their networks. Our experience has shown that mobile carriers are looking for three things: the ability to offer and manage a wide array of mobile devices, the ability to scale wireless email and other data services to millions of users, and a market-tested, proven solution. Most of the small mobility players cannot meet these requirements, and RIM's device-centric position is at odds with these business strategies. But Intellisync hits the mark on all three of these points, and as a result, we have built an organization dedicated to serving this large, developing market."
