DataViz has announced that it has joined the Symbian Platinum Program, thereby extending users access to Microsoft Office to mobile handsets powered by the leading wireless OS in the world. (Symbian is less popular in the U.S. than in most parts of the world, where it leads many markets.)
As a Platinum Partner, DataViz is extending Documents To Go and RoadSync to the Symbian OS ecosystem. With smartphones based on Symbian OS, users have secure and wireless access to corporate e-mail, calendar, contacts, attachments and other office documents using DataViz technology.
"This partnership reflects our overall commitment to Microsoft Office users in need of mobile access to their mission-critical e-mail, Outlook data and other business files," DataViz Marketing Director Kathleen McAneany said. "By utilizing the Microsoft ActiveSync protocol, RoadSync is the only commercially available software product to provide secure, wireless and direct synchronization with Microsoft Exchange 2003 without the need for a middleware server or desktop redirector."
She added, "In addition, Documents To Go, through the employment of InTact Technology, provides a desktop-quality editing experience that ensures complete document integrity while using attachments. Together these software solutions answer the demand for mobilizing 'Microsoft Office Life' without any compromise for professionals on the road today."
