4SmartPhone is offering its mobility solution for small and medium-size businesses (SMBs). The company's 4SmartPhone service, running on the Windows Exchange 2003 platform, delivers seamless access to corporate information on Microsoft Windows mobile devices (Pocket PC and Smartphones).
"Many SMBs have been unable to take full advantage of the benefits inherent in their mobile devices because they lack the IT infrastructure and support required to do so," said Craig Mathias, a principal with the wireless advisory firm Farpoint Group (Ashland, Mass.). "4SmartPhone's offering really levels the playing field, enabling SMBs to gain access to critical personal and corporate information at minimal cost and with maximum convenience."
The company says that with 4SmartPhone services, users can access constantly updated or real-time information with the most familiar functions of Microsoft Outlook on a wireless device, including inbox, contacts, calendar, tasks, notes, and shared/public folders. While the system operates on the Windows Mobile platform, it can also support other platforms in a customized version. In addition, the solution enables real-time access to information through synchronization over the air, allowing users to send, receive and review attachments in the most common formats such as Excel, Word and PDF files.
