Dell and Good Technology announced an alliance to collaborate on wireless products and services for corporate customers. The first product to be launched under this agreement is the G100, a GPRS device with alway-on connection to back end corporate servers for e-mail, calendar and data, without need for a cradle of physical connection.
The companies are exploring reference designs for next-generation handheld devices and services to make wireless email and data access easy and affordable.
"Customers of all sizes are implementing or evaluating wireless technologies throughout their enterprises, and our intent is to work with Good to deliver products and services that are simple and affordable for them to deploy," said John Medica, senior vice president of Dell’s Product Group. "Dell is a leader in wireless computing and we believe Good offers great technology for next generation solutions."
The GoodLink wireless email and data system creates value for companies by providing mobile workers with continuous access to mission-critical company information. GoodLink synchronizes wireless handhelds with company servers - without cradling - so users are always up-to-date and only have to touch data once.
With GoodLink, users remain connected to corporate email, contacts, calendar, notes and tasks - as well as enterprise data stored in CRM, ERP and SFA applications - so they can be productive while they are away from their desktops. GoodLink’s zero desktop software architecture dramatically reduces cost of ownership by eliminating the costly need for IT professionals to install software or cradles on end-users’ desktops.
