Emircom to launch mobile email with Synchronica
Emircom to offer push email solution for businesses in the Middle East
Systems integrator Emircom has signed a deal with Synchronica to provide its Mobile Gateway mobile email solution to businesses and prosumers in the Middle East.
Mobile Gateway enables secure mobile email and synchronization without the need for additional software to be installed on a handset. The application is compatible with a wide range of handsets and email solutions, including Microsoft Exchange, Lotus Domino, Sun Communications Suite and web-based mail like Gmail and Hotmail.
D.G.Roy, COO at Emircom said: "Our customers are always looking for more efficient ways of working and we believe that offering them a cost-effective, highly secure hosted mobile email service will tick all the right boxes. We reviewed a number of mobile email products before selecting Synchronica's Mobile Gateway for its ease of deployment, its zero footprint architecture and its ability to work with virtually any phone in use today. We plan to start offering this secure, hosted, mobile email service to customers immediately."
Emircom will offer Mobile Gateway as an (Application Service Provider) ASP model through its managed services division M/s Telelogic.
Carsten Brinkschulte, CEO at Synchronica, said: "The relationship with Emircom unites our ground-breaking mobile email technology with their extensive knowledge of their markets' ICT requirements. The result will be a compelling hosted mobile email service that we are confident will prove popular in these developing markets."
Along with push email, Mobile Gateway also enables synchronization of contacts, tasks and calendar information.
Lindsey McDonald, ICT Analyst at Frost & Sullivan Africa, commented: "There's definitely a lot of interest in mobile email from companies and prosumers, and a service like this that does not require people to go out and buy expensive mobile phones makes a lot of sense. This partnership between Synchronica and Emircom will give businesses and prosumers in the Middle East, Africa and India a more affordable alternative to the BlackBerry."
