Vodafone UK Selects Visto to Drive Mobile Email ChoiceVisto Mobile with ConstantSync technology to power Vodafone UK's Business Email solution (November 28, 2005)
Visto Corporation, a leading global provider of secure push mobile email, today announced that Vodafone UK, the UK's leading mobile phone operator, has selected Visto Mobile with ConstantSync technology to power its Vodafone Business Email offering, launched this week.
With Visto Mobile, Vodafone UK is able to deliver a mobile push email service to satisfy the needs of business customers, regardless of the size of their business, their email infrastructure, or their preferred mobile phone. In a service that is both easy to use and administrate, Visto Mobile enables mobile professionals to securely send and receive email, calendar updates and changes to contacts in real time.
"Vodafone Business Email enables us to offer mobile email support to companies of all sizes on a multitude of differing devices and popular platforms", said Mark Bond, Director of Enterprise Marketing for Vodafone UK. "Working with Visto, Vodafone has developed a product to meet the both the complex requirements of larger companies as well as the need of smaller organisations and individuals to add easy to manage email to their phone of choice."
"Vodafone UK's selection of Visto Mobile reaffirms Vodafone's strong commitment to high customer satisfaction and service excellence," said Brian Bogosian, chairman, president and CEO of Visto Corporation. "Because of a lack of device choice and the high costs of entry, mobile email use has been restricted to an executive elite. Vodafone Business Email will change this, and a wider UK business audience will soon be enjoying the productivity benefits of mobile email safely and securely on a device of their choice."
The Visto Mobile platform is flexible enough to enable a mobile operator to deliver a consistent advanced user experience for all business customers: large enterprises running Microsoft Exchange or Lotus Domino, requiring a dedicated scalable server; smaller businesses running these mail platforms, requiring a solution to install on an individual's PC; as well as small businesses wishing to take Internet-based email mobile. In addition, the Visto platform supports the broadest set of devices across all operating systems.
With the addition of Vodafone UK's Vodafone Business Email solution, Visto Mobile is now available from nine Vodafone operators and affiliates in Europe: Vodafone Germany, Vodafone Ireland, Vodafone Greece, Vodafone Italy, Vodafone Netherlands, Vodafone Spain, SFR (France), and Elisa (Finland).
